Newly available models rankings confirm this trend and even show that the Peugeot 207, about to be replaced by the 208 here, has taken the lead, passing the Renault Symbol which had been the favourite model in Algeria for the last 4 years. The 207 is #1 year-to-date over 6 months with 16,048 sales, up 75% on 2011, while the Renault Symbol totals 15,316 units, down 12% and the Hyundai Accent rounds up the podium at 12,766 sales (+85%).
