WARSAW, March 5 (Reuters) - New car registrations in Poland rose by 8.8 percent in February from a year earlier, data showed on Monday, driven chiefly by corporate purchases.
Registrations of cars, vans and small trucks totalled 46,870, marking a 35th consecutive month of annual growth, the private Samar research institute said.
Top-selling car models this year have been Fabia and Octavia produced by Skoda, the Czech subsidiary of Volkswagen ; followed by the Toyota Yaris, Astra produced by Opel AG, and Volkswagen Golf.
Registrations in February were down 8.17 percent from January. (Reporting by Lidia Kelly and Anna Wlodarczak-Semczuk; editing by David Evans)
