Leading passenger car models in Finland 2019

In 2019, Škoda Octavia was the leading passenger car model in Finland with roughly 5.6 thousand new registrations. The Japanese car manufacturer Toyota ranked second with their best-selling model Corolla, which sold roughly five thousand units in the country during the year 2019.

Volkswagen leads the sales of used cars

While Nissan took the lead in selling the most newly registered passenger cars of a single model, they were not as successful when it came to the sales of used cars in the same year. The brand did not manage to make it to the top 10 of most sold used cars, as consumers favored models such as Volkswagen Golf and Škoda Octavia. Overall, the brands leading the used car sales ranking in Finland were Volkswagen, Volvo, and Toyota.

Nissan’s sales have recently experienced recent fluctuations in the Nordic countries

The sales numbers of Nissan showed a fluctuating trend in recent years in Finland, as the number of cars sold varied between 5.9 thousand and 7.5 thousand units. Other Nordic countries experienced a similar pattern. In the last ten years, sold car numbers of Nissan have fluctuated between 3.4 thousand and 10.6 thousand in Sweden, and between 1.9 thousand and 10.1 thousand in Denmark. However, in these countries the sales numbers showed a clear increasing trend, unlike in Finland.
