But the month of February belongs to one newcomer: after ranking #67 in December and #27 in January, the Hyundai Tucson spectacularly takes the lead of the Egyptian new car market thanks to 1.291 sales and 7.8% share. The Hyundai Verna (7.4%) overtakes the Chevrolet TFR (6.1%) which however keeps the year-to-date lead by just 7 units. The Peugeot 301 goes from #112 in January to a formidable 8th place in February, the Hyundai Creta is up to #16, the Solaris up to #22 and we welcome two all-nw models in Egypt this month: the all-new Kia Sportage (#30) and the Opel Mokka (#32).

At 23.726 deliveries, new car sales in Egypt are down again in October: -9% on the same month in 2014, a further decline than the one it is experiencing year-to-date at -2% and 232.783 units. Surprise in the models pole position this month: the Nissan Sunny is up 65% on its September score to lead the market overall with 2.408 units, crossing the symbolic 10% market share mark. Unfortunately this is coming too late in the year to have a serious impact on the Sunny’s year-to-date ranking: still #3 with 5.1% of the market below the Chevrolet TFR (8.9%) and Hyundai Verna (7.8%), kicked down to #2 and #3 respectively this month. The Renault Logan lodges another extraordinary month in 4th place at 6.5% share vs. 3.3% so far in 2015, and is followed by the Chevrolet Lanos and Aveo. The Kia Sportage is up 4 spots on last month to #7, the Chevrolet Cruze is up 18 to #11 and the Nissan Pickup up 19 to #17.
