Argentina Autos September Sales kept momentum despite the economic environment further deteriorated with recession over 3% on annual basis and deceleration in private consumption.

Market Outlook

The Argentine economy was in deep recession in Q2 after recording the third consecutive quarter-on-quarter decrease. GDP contracted 3.4% on an annual basis as a deceleration in private consumption, due to a decrease in real wages and a deterioration in the labor market, took a toll on growth.
