New car sales in Estonia totaled 19,600 in 2013, an increase of 1 percent compared with the previous year, with the list of the top three sellers - Toyota (2,461), Skoda (1,783) and Volkswagen (1,708) - remaining unchanged.

Honda CR-V was the most sold model (911), followed by Skoda's Octavia (827), Nissan Qashqai (678) and Toyota Avensis (673), car magazine Whatcar reported on Thursday.

The most groundbreaking change came in the rise of small SUVs (up 36 percent), which ousted compact cars as the most popular type of vehicle. Sales of mid-sized vehicles were down 31 percent, and larger SUVs 25 percent.

In the high-end section, six Jaguars were sold (12 during the previous year), four Lamborghinis (4), three Ferraris (2), one Tesla (0), Rolls-Royce (0) and Aston Martin (1).
