Hungary cars market in 2015

Hungary cars market in 2015 recovered 14% in the best year out of the last seven albeit the economic environment still lost steam. Opel confirmed the leadership while the new Suzuki Vitara jumped in second place.

Economic Outlook

Hungary’s economy lost more steam in the third quarter, expanding at the softest pace since Q2 2013. Subdued performance in the external sector dragged on growth, while a robust labor market supported strong private consumption. Notably, fixed investment swung to contraction as EU developmental funding began to dry up.

Averting a notable economic slowdown this year remains a key challenge for policy makers going forward. More recent data, however, is encouraging: business and consumer sentiment improved in December. In addition, the minimum wage hike that took effect on 1 January should give a boost to household consumption going forward.

Market Outlook

Following a series of 24 year on year growing months, the Hungarian car market ended the 2015 posting a double-digit increase and the best volume level out of the last seven years. However, current level is around the 35% of the record of the 2005.

According to data released by the MGSZ – (Magyar Gépjármű Szövetség), the Hungarian Associations of Car Manufacturers, in the entire 2015 car sales had been 77.172, up 14.4% from the previous year.

The new Suzuki Vitara was very close to be the best-selling model arriving second with 3.733 units on the shoulders of the Skoda Octavia that confirmed its leadership with 4.761 sales (+20.0%).
