In terms of segments, SUVs continued to grow their market share, with their registrations in July accounting for more than a quarter of the total market (25.8%). The drop in traditional segments outweighed the growth of SUVs, with large/luxury cars, city-cars and MPVs posting the biggest losses of the month. While Spain, Italy and the UK all posted modest growth in July, this could not fully compensate for the declines seen in France and Germany.
