(Note these figures include LCV) The Turkish new car market is up a very robust 10% year-on-year in 2013 to 853,378 registrations. Brand-wise, Volkswagen is the most popular this year thanks to 112,056 sales and 13.1% while Ford, pushed my a mammoth month of December (#1), stops just 156 units short of snapping the #2 spot away from Renault at 108,155 sales vs. 108,311. Fiat (11.4%), Opel (6.6%) and Hyundai (5.8%) are the only other brands above 5% share this year.

    Yeah Turkey is really making some great things happy in the Automotive industry. I’m not to fond of the Ford Transit, in terms of it’s design, but it is indeed a comfortable vehicle to ride in, obviously being a transit style vehicle.

    Great info, keep the value coming buddy.
