Very stable new car market in Belgium in 2014: down 0.6% to 482,939 registrations, 537,964 including LCVs. Volkswagen is master in command once again despite sales down 2% to 49,103 deliveries for a 10.2% market share. The 3 Frenchies follow like in 2013: Renault (-3%), Peugeot (-1%) and Citroen (-5%) while BMW gains one spot thanks to sales actually up 1% on 2013 to 32,012, overtaking Opel (-5%).

The Hyundai ix35 cracks the annual Belgian Top 10 for the first time.
The VW Golf remains the most popular nameplate in the country by far with 16,078 sales and 3% share, illustrating the extreme fragmentation of the Belgian new car market: the Golf is the only nameplate above 1.9% market share. The BMW 3 Series at 10,409 units and Renault Clio at 10,373 sales shine on the podium, followed by the Renault Mégane, VW Polo, Renault Scénic and Audi A3 while the Hyundai ix35 delivers its first-ever annual Top 10 ranking in Belgium at #10.
