Leadership in the January market belonged to the Japanese Toyota brand, whose cars then received 941 plates, but the best-seller of the first month of the year is the Volkswagen Golf, which was withdrawn from sales in other countries due to the diesel scandal (318 cars sold).

February market in comparison with February 2017 grew by 21% to 5,800 new cars, and the palm of the championship went to Volkswagen, at which 830 customers stopped their choice.

At the same time, the market decline occurred in March, when the number of new car registrations compared to March of the previous year decreased by almost 7% to 6,800 cars.

At that, the most popular car in April was Renault Duster - 308 new cars of this model replenished the Ukrainian fleet.

In May, Ukrainians bought only a few cars less than in the previous month, but at the same time they provided a small increase (+4%) compared to the same period last year.

Reducing the speed of just 2 cars compared to the previous month, Toyota maintained the leading position among the brands.

The best sales this time distinguished another diesel car - Audi A3, having found 264 owners in Ukraine.

In June, the market for new passenger cars again showed a downward trend, but this time the drop in demand occurred not only in relation to the June registrations of the previous year (-5.4%), but also to the previous month (-4.8%).
