Hungary Autos Sales

Hungary Autos Sales are booming with a Q3 above observers expectations. While Suzuki kept the leadership fueled by a roaring Vitara, Ford advanced into the top three.

Market Outlook

Hungarian economic picture for third quarter 2016 had been mixed.

A strengthening labor market, as evidenced by July’s multi-year low unemployment rate, bodes well for household spending. However, signs for caution came from July’s slumps in industrial production and exports as well as September’s subdued economic sentiment.

A notable rebound in the external sector was supported by a recovery in the auto industry in the Q2 of the year. Also, during the third quarter the Hungarian cars market performed a sharp sales improvement, shining in July.

In such environment, according to data released by the MGSZ – (Magyar Gépjármű Szövetség) – the Hungarian Associations of Car Manufacturers, the new car passenger’s sales had been reported strong with July at 8.064 sales (+15.0%), August at 7.181 units (+43.7%) and September at 8.229 sales (+31.3%).
