Suzuki at the top with Vitara
Since the new Vitara’s launch in March, Suzuki vehicle sales in Hungary have shown a trend of increase due to the model’s success. That has also helped the brand to regain the No. 1 position in the Hungarian vehicle market. Registration figures for Suzuki rose to 928 units, while total number of units sold in the Jan-Sept period reached 5,049. Suzuki’s market share grew to 14.8 % in September.
With sales of 597 units in September, the Vitara maintained the No. 1 position in the SUV segment, as well as year-to-date segment leader with total sales of 2,119 units. Swift also kept No. 1 position in the B segment with total sales of 1,550 units year-to-date. In September Suzuki’s market share was 14.8 %, a significant growth from July’s 10.6 %, and from 10.2 % in August.
In July, Suzuki already conquered the top of the chart with the highest number of monthly registration of 740 units. In August, due to the Magyar Suzuki factory’s temporary closure, 512 units were registered, which was still enough for No. 3 position. With the excellent September sales results of 928 units, Suzuki recaptured the No. 1 position.
The outstanding sales results were due to a combined effort of Hungary’s strongest and widest dealership network, with 75 sales points, as well to the Vitara’s success .
The Top 20 of new passenger fleet car registrations includes 3 Suzuki models: the Vitara, the S-CROSS and the Swift, out of which Vitara and Swift are segment leaders.
