Netherlands Full Year 2010: Polo #1, ‘Kolin sisters’ at +56%

Car sales in the Netherlands are up 25% in 2010 at 483,164 registrations. This year two Volkswagens swapped leadership: the VW Polo is the best selling car in the country with 18,681 sales (3.9%, +225%), replacing the VW Golf, best-seller in 2009 and #4 this year.

Even though they launched 5 years ago with a mild restyling last year, the ‘Kolin sisters’ (Peugeot 107, Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 built in Kolin, Czech Rep) managed to improve again on their outstanding performance. The 107 is #2 overall at 17,911 sales (+89%!), the Aygo is #3 at 14,999 (+31%) and the C1 is #6 at 11,540 (+51%): the 3 models sold a total of 44,450 units or 9.2% of the Dutch market and +56% over ’09  (28,564 sales and 7.4%).
