I'm moving the discussion from Guess the highway thread because I don't want to spam there:

I'm asking, because in Poland we may bring from western countries even one million cars per year.
40% of cars that get the first Hungarian registration are used cars from abroad. However, using absolute data, it is not so much, not more than 30,000 cars a year.
Hungarian car market was always very small, the highest year was 2007 with slightly over 200,000 new registrations, and then the market collapsed due to the financial crisis.
Note that almost all new cars were bought by a loan, basically based on Swiss franc which has now an exchange rate 50% higher than in 2007 so many car owners are unable to pay monthly redemption.
As an effect of that, and facing the very high 'bank tax', banks in Hungary don't want to provide loans for cars so that simply no one is able to buy new cars nowadays. In 2011 there was no more than 45,000 new cars sold in Hungary, a vast majority of them was bought by companies and state agencies.
