Mongolia 2011: Hyundai Accent and Sonata possible leaders

Hyundai Accent

Yes, I know. Mongolia was the only major country not to be featured in BestSellingCars... until today! You'd think that given its geographical situation, Mongolia's car market would be a mix of Chinese and Russian cars. Not so! Observation of the streets of Ulan Bataar through recent YouTube videos shows Hyundai has established a very solid grip on the Mongolian market, with various generations of Hyundai Accent and Sonata the most common.

Hyundai Sonata

So I will venture a - calculated - bet: the new generation Hyundai Accent and Sonata could lead the models ranking in Mongolia in 2011. Japanese brands are also appreciated there, especially Toyota. In that context, other models that should find their way towards the Mongolian Top 10 are the Toyota Land Cruiser, Nissan X-Trail and possibly Nissan Qashqai and Tiida.

    Dear matgasnier,

    the best selling car in Mongolia is quite relative. Because 75% of all cars are older than 10 years. Mostly it comes from Japan and Korea. In new car, I think Toyota LandCruiser is the most favorite among the rich Mongols. In old car, the most bought car is Hyundai Porter/Bongo pickup. Trucks comes mostly from China, both new and old. The Busses which we have are just shit. In winter it is very cold, the windows are all icy, no diesel particle filter, needs lots of maintenance. As you see on the video, they come from Korea, mostly Hyundai.

    The cars which is shown above costs like 10 years old japan premium sedan and many common mongols would prefer japanese because of their quality. Such new cars are only bought by the government or taxi companies.

    Thumbs up, that you’ve got written about Mongolia.
