Belgium Car Sales - Brand / 2016


Belgians like buying new cars. For a country so small, over half a million sales is very high. 2016 was a good year but by no means a record either. A 7.7% increase was achieved for the year.

For a second year Renault prevailed over its nemesis VW, slightly pulling ahead in 2016. The two have dueled for decades over the coveted top spot. Mercedes Benz had the strongest growth among the top ten brands, while Opel passed Peugeot. All the big gains were lower down as you would expect. Jaguar, Infiniti, Morgan and Rolls Royce exceeded 100% improvement in their sales.

In the chart below, pale yellow represents a reduction in registrations, pale blue is increase but lost market share. Green is for those exceeding the market growth and finally the salmon colour for those with over 100% increase.
