Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 11, 2018 – A total of 7,546 new cars were sold in Croatia in the first two months of 2018, an increase of 38% over the same period in 2017, according to data from Promocija Plus marketing agency.

The best-selling cars were Volkswagen (1,123 units sold), Skoda (1,019) and Suzuki (648).

In February alone, 3,840 new vehicles were sold, which is 46% more than in February 2017.

The five most sought-after car models were the Skoda Octavia (373 units sold), the Volkswagen Golf (207), the Suzuki Vitara (167), the Ford Focus (154) and the Suzuki SX4 (112).

Broken down by fuel type, 50.9% of all vehicles sold were powered by petrol engines and 47% by diesel engines. Four of the vehicles sold were powered by electricity and 94 were hybrids.

The government changed the regulations on car import late last year, which prompted many potential buyers to wait for the new rules to take effect in January.
