New car sales in Hungary are up a magnificent 30% year-on-year in February to 5,017 registrations, which prompts questions around the amount of re-exports inside the European Union at stake here… Brand-wise, Hungary is one of the only countries in the world to still crown Opel at 679 sales and 13.5% share just above Ford (13.4%) and Volkswagen (13.2%). In the models sales charts, the Skoda Octavia sells almost double any other competitor at 368 units and 7.3% while in 2nd position the Suzuki Swift is up 6 spots on January and virtually comes back from the dead. Once ultra-dominant and the best-seller in the country from 2005 to 2008, the Swift had fallen by the wayside in the past 5 years. Could 2014 be the year of its renaissance? Answer in a few months…
