Romania 2008: Logan at 25%, Sandero arrives
In spite of the increased competition triggered by the country’s entrance in the European Union, the Dacia Logan maintains its stranglehold on the Romanian market, with a share slipping from 30.1% in 2007 to a still very solid 25.2% over the first 8 months of 2008. The restyled Phase 2 on sale since July helped. Logan’s 50,088 sales include 38,399 sedans and 11,689 MCV’s.
Launched in June, the Dacia Sandero is already #11 over the first 8 months of the year with 3,841 sales and 1.9%. The Skoda Octavia keeps progressing and reaches 6.1% over the period at 12,198 sales, the Renault Clio (4.3%) and Ford Focus (3.1%) are also holding well. Notice the arrival of the Kia Cee’d in 6th position at 5,266 sales and 2.6%.
