Leading passenger car brands in Finland 2021
Volkswagen leading the sales of used cars in 2018
While Toyota remains as the leader for newly registered cars, the brand was not as successful regarding the sales of used cars in 2018, as customers preferred both Volkswagen and Volvo over the Japanese company. This could be also seen in the most sold used car models, where Toyota only managed to reach 9th spot with its Toyota Avensis model. In this category, Volkswagen Golf led the sales with over 21 thousand used cars, compared to nearly 17 thousand sales of Škoda Octavia.
