Mexico February 2011: VW Clasico leads the way!

March 11, 2011 Leave a comment

VW Clasico

The Mexican car market is up a healthy 13% in February at 66,990 registrations. For once the Nissan Tsuru is not the best selling car this month, the honour going to the old generation Jetta and recently renamed VW Clasico. It’s been a while since the Tsuru was last outsold so this is a month to remember in Mexico!

Probably benefitting from its new status as ‘low cost’ car, the VW Clasico clocks up 5,141 sales or 7.7% of the market, 109 more than the Tsuru at 7.5%. The Nissan Tiida sedan is holding well at 4,081 sales and 6.1%. The new VW Jetta gears up at #5 (+2 spots on January) with 1,874 sales and 2.8%.

Mexico January 2011: Nissan Tsuru & Tiida on top, Spark #6

February 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Relatively good start of the year for the Mexican car market at +7% with 68,766 registrations. Nissan places two models on top: the Nissan Tsuru is #1 again, and even grows faster than the market at +13% with 5,366 sales (7.8%), and the Nissan Tiida Sedan continues its amazing progression at #2 with 4,279 sales (6.2%) and +74%.

Strong showings for the VW Jetta Clasico in 3rd (+32%) and the Chevrolet Aveo in 4th (+87%), but the real event this month is the arrival of two newbies in the Top 10: the Chevrolet Spark is #6 with 1,886 sales (2.7%) and the VW New Jetta is #7 with 1,816 units (2.6%).

Mexico October 2010: Jetta threatens Tsuru

December 3, 2010 Leave a comment

The Mexican car market is experiencing a slow growth this year after the devastating blow of the financial crisis, with +7% over 10 months at 639,883 registrations and +9% in October at 74,094.

The Nissan Tsuru is still the king of the Mexican roads with 5,097 sales in October (6.9%) and 48,785 sales YTD (7.6%), but the VW Jetta (helped by the new generation) is getting closer: At 4.9% market share YTD, it grows to 5.4% in September, and 6.4% in October (4,763 sales).

However the success story of 2010 is still at this stage the Nissan Tiida Sedan, with sales up 88% over 10 months 2010 at 28,605 (4.5%). And the Tiida is above its YTD level both in September (5.1%) and October (5.4%).

Many thanks to Ausrutherford for pointing me out to!
