According to data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT, the Cypriot new car market is up by a splendid 25% year-on-year in 2015 to 10.344 registrations.

The Nissan Qashqai (661) is the victim this year, despite sales up 68%. The Ford Fiesta (+56%) and Kia Rio (+145%) follow, both overtaking the Toyota Yaris (+16%) down to #5. Notice also the Kia Sportage up 49%, the Nissan X-Trail up 5-fold to #8 thanks to the new model, the Renault Captur up 46% to #9. Further down, the Ford Kuga, Focus, VW Tiguan and BMW 2 Series also post spectacular gains.
