D he top of the top 50 list of new registrations in Germany in October reads like an extract from the VW delivery program. Up front, of course, the Golf. Behind the Passat, then the strengthened Polo, which could intercept the Tiguan. Third-party brands were able to sneak in on ranks 5, 6 and 7 - the Opel Corsa, the Mercedes C-Class and the BMW 3-series, which will again take over the power of the Bavarians.
Hyundai Tucson falls a long way
Positions 8, 9 and 10 bring a reunion with representatives from the VW group. Here are the Skoda Octavia, which is becoming a successful import model, as well as the Audi A4 and A3. The new Hyundai Tucson crashed a long way in October. In the previous month, in 15th place, currently only 50th place for the Korean - all dealers seem to be supplied with demonstrators.
The Spaniard with the highest registrations in the list is the Seat Leon in 14th place, the Mini in place 18 holds up the flag for the British. The first Italian follows in 21st place with the Fiat 500, and the first Korean in 26th place with the i30 from Hyundai. And Japan? Comes 32nd with the Qashqai from Nissan. 38th place sees the Renault Twingo, the first French listed.

Note: The registration statistics are the official information from the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg. The division into the respective classes is carried out by the manufacturer using a key number. The statistics can also show models that are not available on the German market or that are no longer built. This peculiarity can occur with the KBA statistics if e.g. foreign vehicles are registered for the first time in Germany or vehicles are given a new ID number.
