Croatia 2005-2009: Opel Astra maintains stranglehold

Launched in March 2004, the Opel Astra new generation takes the lead of Croatian car sales in 2005 with 5,596 registration and nearly 8% of the market, far above the Renault Clio at 5.7% and the Opel Corsa at 5.3%. It is to be noted that Astra figures also include the Astra “Classic”, the 1998 generation still on sale in Croatia alongside the new generation.

The German compact car maintains its lead in Croatia for the next 5 years, improving its share to 9% in 2006 and 10.7% in 2007 (as at August), back down to 7.6% in 2008. 2009 figures were not available but the Astra was #1 then for the 5th consecutive year. During the whole period, the Renault Clio is #2, peaking at 6.3% in 2006.

The 3rd place changes hands each year: it is held by the Opel Corsa in 2005, the Fiat Punto in 2006, the Peugeot 207 in 2007 and the Skoda Octavia in 2008, topping a decade of progression in the country.
