December has broken a Y.o.Y. negative series of 11 months and was only the second positive out of last 22. The data has surprised observers also considering that last year December was already positive and the performance is considered a temporary effect of short terms sustains in place.

Many consumers could have decided to anticipate the purchase of a vehicle planned for the next year in order avoiding to incur in the expected prices increase.

The leader of importers, the Korean Kia, confirmed the good momentum of the second half of the year improving December sales 26.1% and recovering almost all the gap from the 2013. Full Year sales had been down only 1.2%.

In December, the third step of the podium was gained by Nissan (5th in the year) with 20.131 units (just few units from Kia).
