The capital's bestsellers are Volkswagen Polo and KiRio, but the demand for them has failed quite strongly: Polo is registered 42% less (this is an anti-rating record) than a year ago - 6.1 thousand units, and Rio - less by 21%, 6 thousand units … Their leadership is partly due to the increased demand for these models in taxis and car sharing. Following them is Hyundai Cret (5.5 thousand units, minus 6.6%).
The fourth place was taken by the Nissan Qashqai - the only model in the top 10 of Moscow, which came out in plus: an increase of 10%, 4.9 thousand crossovers. Volkswagen Tiguan closes the top five (4.1 thousand units, minus 9.4%).
