Algerian car sales data is getting rarer these days but I am able to share with you now the best-selling models in the country over the first 3 months of 2012. Confirming the pole position it has been holding for at least 3 years, the Renault Symbol is the most popular vehicle in the country over the period with 8,831 sales. It is followed by the Toyota Hilux at 6,400 units and the Peugeot 207 with 5,681 sales.
After an exceptional end of year in 2011, the Hyundai Accent falls back to 4th place in the 2012 year-to-date ranking at 5,334 units, ahead of the Dacia Logan with 4,822 sales and the Chevrolet Sail imported from China confirming its strong career start at #6 with 2,978 units sold in 3 months and 1,097 in March alone.
