Ireland Best Selling Cars in the 2018 sees, on top for the third consecutive year, the Hyundai Tucson (-18%) ahead of Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Golf. Toyota C-HR (27.4%) scored an excellent performance, entering the 10th from the previous year’s 15th place.
In the 2018 the car passenger’s market lost moderately – down 4.2% – confirming the decline started in recent years and closing with 125.784 sales. The Q2 was the only quarter closing positively, up 125%. The reason of this negative trend can be found looking at the UK environment, where a drop in demand in an uncertain Brexit context has made Ireland full of zero-km sales, while blocking the local new car market.
Best selling model, the Hyundai Tucson is again at the top of the ranking with 4.026 sales (-18%), overtaking at the very-last minute the Nissan Qashqai that closed the 2018 with 4.004 sales (-4.6%) .
In the third place, the Volkswagen Golf with 3.966 sales (-8.2%), losing one spot from last year.
In fourth place the Ford Focus with 3.77 units (-1.9%) ahead of the Skoda Octavia was third with 3.357 sales (-15.7%), the Volkswagen Tiguan, with 2.883 (+16.3%) and the Kia Sportage with 2.875 units (-6.2%).
In eight place the Toyota Yaris with 2.855 (-0.9) followed by the Ford Fiesta with 2.724 units (-15.3%) and in 10th place by the Toyota C-HR with 2.505 (+27.4%).
