* See the Top 60 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to Ldman *
Once again thanks to Ldman I can now share with you official sales data for Syria for the first time on Best Selling Cars Blog. 11,514 new cars were sold in Syria over the first Quarter of 2011, at least, as not all manufacturers’s sales figures are available. As I pictured on YouTube when I started this blog and similarly to neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan, Koreans rule in Syria with Hyundai and Kia trusting almost all position within the models Top 20.
Two recently relaunched Hyundais deliver out-of-this-world market shares: the Elantra is in pole position with 2,054 sales and 17.8% while the Accent is at 1,984 units and 17.2%. The Kia Frontier Pick-up (aka Bongo) rounds up the podium with 1,123 sales and 9.8%, ahead of the Hyundai Tucson at 8.6%, the Toyota Hilux at 7.4% and Hyundai Santa Fe at 6.9%. There are 5 more Kias and 5 more Hyundais in the Top 20 but remember not all brands are represented. The Top of the ranking should be very close to actuals though.
