The Algerian car market continues to impress and should finish the year above 250,000 units. The Renault Symbol is in the lead again in September with 2,537 sales but is threatened by the Hyundai Atos at 2,370 units. The Symbol is #1 in the 2011 year-to-date ranking by a large margin with 24,712 sales vs. 13,278 for the Atos. The Hyundai Accent is #3 both this month and YTD.
The Chinese-imported Chevrolet Sail reaches new heights in Algeria, breaking into the monthly Top 5 for the very first time to land in 4th position this month with 1,048 sales, just above the Suzuki Alto at 1,017 units. The Dacia Logan has definitely lost touch with the podium at #6 with 803 sales, while the Kia Picanto is up 7 spots on August to #7.
Further down the ranking, notice the Seat Ibiza up to #11, the VW Tiguan up to #15, the Nissan Micra at #18 and the Renault Fluence at #26. There are two more Chinese models in the Top 40: the Chery QQ at #29 with 127 sales and the Haima Family at #39 and 98 units.
