the renewal of The Volkswagen Gol has sat well

Thanks to the significant discounts that they are offering in the showrooms, the car sales in Argentina grows a magnificent 21.0% in August with 69.805 units marketed. Throughout the year, the climb is 8.3% with a total of 471.700 units sold.

Following its recent restyling, the Volkswagen Gol, has managed to become the most popular car in the country. The new Goal removes the name “Trend” of his last name, introduces slight aesthetic changes, increases equipment and decreases a bit the selling price. A formula that has allowed it to lead the market, something that could not since February.

The German model -although manufactured in Brazil – dethrones as well Toyota Hilux, who had four consecutive months of reigning, but this time it has had to be satisfied with second place. The bronze medal is for the Renault Clio and go three months in a row in that position.

The Sandero is one of the ‘culprits’ that Renault is the brand most sold in this market

Fantastic a result of the Renault Sandero, signing a commendable seventh place doubling its sales compared to August of 2015 (+103%). In the same line is the Peugeot Partner (+95%), which comes to the post 15.On the opposite side we find the veteran Chevrolet Classic, which has been delayed significantly until the 16th place with its enrollment dropping a blunt 50%.

Renault turns to be the leader among the manufacturers, something that has been achieved on two occasions this year -the previous time was in June-. The mark of a rhombus grows a spectacular 54% in comparison with the results of 12 months ago. Volkswagen and Chevrolet closed the podium of brands.
