Germany best selling cars after the first seven of the 2017 with the Volkswagen Golf losing in double-digit and the VW Tiguan advanced in 5th place. The best new entrance in the Top 100 was the Audi Q2, doing better than Seat Ateca and Toyota C-HR.
Following a positive 2016, the start of the 2017 was better than expected for the domestic car passenger’s market in Germany and today we can see this under the top models performance perspective.
In the first half of the 2017, the sales of Volkswagen Golf declined in almost all European countries, compared with last year, and this was the case of Germany. The main reason is the sales push in place last year, when the focus of German brand was to not lose volume immediately after the emission scandal, but we have to add the decline of the traditional C segment hatchback due to the growth of the C SUV.
Indeed, year to date July sales for the Volkswagen Golf have been 130.361, down 11.5%.
In second place the Volkswagen Polo with 45.610 units (+3.5%) and third the Mercedes C Class with 43.230 sales (+10.1%).
In fourth place the Volkswagen Passat, down 2 spots, with 43.041 sales (-15.2%). At the end of an impressive run, the recently renovated Volkswagen Tiguan advanced in fifth place, up 5 spots, with 41.699 sales (+25.8%) followed by the Audi A4 with 37.027 (-3.7%) and the Opel Astra with 36.754 (-5.7%).
In eight place the Skoda Octavia with 34.350 units (-1.0%) followed by the Mercedes E Class, new entry in top 10, up 12 spots, with 32.316 units (+34.9%) and in 10th place by the Audi A3 with 31.671 (-18.9%)
In an almost stable ranking, the first new entrance was the Audi Q2, landed in 42nd place, while the Seat Ateca ranked 56th and the Toyota C-HR was 76th.
