As seen on whichcar.com.au
Which manufacturers are rolling with the pandemic and parts-shortage punches of 2021 as the market continues its recovery?
In the second article of our two-part 2021 half-term sales report series, we continue to find out which brands are winning or losing in Australia’s new-car sales race.
Skoda: Up 105 per cent – big winner
Best-selling model: Kodiaq large SUV (1232 sales; up 41 per cent)
Fastest-growing model: Superb large car (372 sales; up 318 per cent)
Skoda is the fastest-growing VW Group brand in Australia right now, with impressive triple-digit growth. Sales have been boosted by the arrival of two (related) all-new cars – the Scala hatchback and the Kamiq compact SUV – while a new-generation Octavia is also fresh and looking to re-establish itself as Skoda’s best-selling model.
That title currently belongs to the Kodiaq large SUV. The Superb large car, which was given an expanded range in late 2020, is enjoying sales growth of nearly 320 per cent. Even the Fabia city car – due to be replaced by a next-generation version in early 2022 – is up 33 per cent.
