Argentina December 2010: Amarok passes Hilux for the first time

Never before had Argentineans bought that many cars in a year: 662,591 registrations in 2010 is the new record for this market, up 29% on 2009.

In December the VW Amarok (#12, 892 sales) is ranked above the Toyota Hilux (#19, 625 sales) in Argentina for the very first time. With the Single Cab still to be launched, the VW pick-up should see its sales progress further in 2011 and the battle between the two models will be intense.

The Chevrolet Corsa Classic is the best selling car in Argentina in 2010 with 36,058 sales (5.4%), finishing the year with an outstanding 7.8% share in December. The Peugeot 207 Compact is #2 (29,613), ahead of the VW Gol Trend (25,756), Renault Sandero (24,302) and Ford Ecosport (21,389).

December highlights include the formidable 2nd spot of the new VW Fox (5.5%), the arrival in the Top 30 of the Fiat Uno 2010 (437 sales) and Ford Fiesta Kinetic (436), and the 38th position of the Renault Fluence (269 sales) for its first full month of sales.
