Netherlands best selling cars. The top 100 in 2019

Netherlands best selling cars year-to-date has the Volkswagen Polo back on top, just few units ahead of the Ford Focus, up an astonishing 71.7%. The Opel Astra and the Kia Niro grow in double-digit.


According to data released by the RAI Vereeniging, the Dutch Association of Car Manufacturers, in the 2018 car passenger’s sales grew up at 446.589, improving by 7.7% from the 2017.

However, during the year the almost positive first half was followed by a less positive trend in the second, influenced by WLTP introduction as well, with recent months all negative and a 2019 outlook uncertain.

February’s market, still following the same line, recorded year-to-date 77.219 units (-18%). The market registered a negative trend in March as well, showing the first quarter sales down 14.7% with 116.346 units.

In April sales, despite the significant speed reduction, are still negative (-3.3%) with 33.149. Even still negative, in May the trend experiences a further speed reduction (-0.3%) with 36.830 units.

The year-to-date registrations are at 186.225 (-10.3%).


The year-to-date best-selling car was the Volkswagen Polo, down 19.4%, with 5.726 units.

In second, the Ford Focus, with 5.518 (+71.7%) ahead of the Opel Astra with 5.094 (+51.5%).
