September figures are starting to trickle through, and Iceland is the first off the starting blocks this month. Slowly but surely, the Icelandic new car market is going into hibernation as the rest of the country’s economy does in wintertime. This month’s 419 sales tally is lower than in August but more worryingly 19% down on September 2012, bringing the year-to-date total to 5,784 sales, down 15% on 2012. This month the Top 2 best-sellers are identical to the year-to-date ranking: the Skoda Octavia reclaims the top spot with 6% share ahead of the Toyota Yaris at 4.3%, equal second with its bigger sister the Toyota Auris. It’s a particularly good month for Renault LCVs: the Master is up to #6 and the Kangoo up to #9. Finally, notice the Hyundai i20 in great shape at #13.
