Norway 2006-2007: VW Passat clear leader

Stable in 2006, the Norwegian car market booms in 2007 at +18% and 129,195 registrations. As predicted towards the end of 2005 when it got renewed, the VW Passat takes the lead in Norway, with 5,183 sales in 2006 (4.7%) and 7,194 in 2007 (5.6%).

The launch of the Toyota Auris in 2007 (coming in directly #7 at 2.7%) has an important impact on the sales ranking in the country, making the Toyota Corolla (#2 in 2006 at 4.2%) drop to #13. This way the VW Golf climbs to #2 in 2007 (6,076 sales and 4.7%) followed by the Toyota Avensis at #3 (5,621 sales and 4.4%).

Strangely, the Suzuki Vitara grows 153% in 2006 to reach the 5th place at 4,049 sales and 3.7% then disappears from the Top 20 in 2007… when the Toyota RAV4 climbs to a best-ever 5th position at 4,118 sales and 3.2%, just behind the Volvo V70 at #4 and up 71% on 2006, the best ranking Volvo in Norway in years.
