WLTP changes made for a strange September, with Opel-Vauxhall Europe's number one ahead of BMW, Mercedes and Ford with Volkswagen plunging to fifth. Of all the brands in the top ten, Kia, in ninth place ahead of Hyundai, was the only one to post higher sales. That wasn't due to a fluke month either, it was thanks to multiple new models and a freshened Sportage in particular.
