After over a year without any data, Israel catches up on lost time with a second update in a week thanks to Enrique from Spanish Autoblog. In January, the Israeli car market is up 3% year-on-year at 20,194 registrations, and both brands and models ranking are totally upside down! Brand-wise, Kia takes the lead with 2,126 sales ahead of Ford (2,104) and 2011 leader Hyundai (2,019). Toyota and Skoda also sell more than Mazda, down 65% on January 2011 and the uncontested favourite brand in the country up until 2010...

Seat Ibiza

In the models ranking, the Ford Focus flamboyantly takes the top spot with 1,719 sales and a mammoth 8.5% market share, compared to #5 and 2.8% in 2011. It is followed by the Seat Ibiza at 1,034 units and 5.1% vs. 1.7% and #13 in 2011, and the Skoda Fabia with 711 sales and 3.5% (vs. 1.1% and #26)! The Toyota Corolla is down to #4 at 3.4%, ahead of the Kia Rio and Skoda Octavia.

Skoda Fabia

Leader for at least the last 6 years, the Mazda3 is down to a worrying 7th place at 526 units and 2.6% share. Kia places 3 models in the Top 10 with the Forte at #8 and the Sportage at #9 while Hyundai lodges 5 cars in the Top 20: the i25 (aka Accent) is #14, the i10 #15, the i20 #16, the i35 (aka Elantra) #17 and the i30 #19. Notice also the Nissan Juke up to a brilliant 11th position and the Ford Edge up to #46.
