The annual accumulated shows an even higher increase (+22,2%) on the basis of the 83.470 units obtained in the first two months of the year.
As usual, the ranking Dutch has once again suffered large oscillations. In January, four models of Volkswagen were leading the table but in February we did not find even a single car of the German mark between the first 14. The Volkswagen Up! (15th) has been the best result has been obtained while, for example, the Volkswagen Tiguan has gone to appear in the fourth square to disappear from the Top 25.
The chief beneficiary of these changes has been the Kia Picanto, which has achieved an impressive first position when it is about to be replaced by the new generation what Surprise? Half because it is not the first time: the utilitarian Korean was already the leader of the Netherlands just a year ago, in February of 2016.
The Toyota Aygo gets on the podium

Renault Clio and Opel Astra has been the only models ‘great’ that they have entered among the first six. The Renault Capture (8th) is the urban crossover most sought after and the Nissan Qashqai (11) it commands among the compact SUVS.
In regards to the brands, market fluctuations have made Volkswagen pass raze the last month to fall to sixth place in this ranking. Renault takes the lead with a good advantage over Peugeot and Opel. Remarkable performance of Citroën, that goes up to the eighth place, driven by the good reception of the new C3.
