The Jordanian new car market slows down its fall over the First Half of 2017 at -3% to 21.606 registrations, with Korean brands confirming they are now the hot ticket in town. After Hyundai overstepped Toyota over the first four months of the year, it is now the turn of Kia to do so halfway through 2017. As a result, Hyundai (+12%) now holds 27.2% of the Jordanian market above Kia (+28%) holding 22.7% and Toyota (-32%) at 21.1%. These three brands account for a whopping 71% of all Jordanian car sales over the period. Lexus (+19%), BMW (+19%), Chevrolet (+60%) and most impressively Land Rover (+193%) also shine within the Top 10. Beyond, let’s notice Audi (+28%), Volkswagen (+32%), Honda (+75%), Porsche (+80%), GMC (+157%) and Ram (+460%) all posting spectacular gains.

The Hyundai Elantra ranks #2 in Jordan so far in 2017. 

The models ranking gets reshuffled once again with different leaders even compared to two months ago. The Kia Frontier takes the overall lead thanks to deliveries up 60% to an imposing 11.8% market share, and is followed by the Hyundai Elantra up 51% to 10.4%. Leader over the Full Year 2016 and after four months this year, the Toyota Land Cruiser (-15%) drops to third place overall halfway though 2017, still holding a robust 10.2% market share. Below, the Hyundai Sonata is up 5-fold on the same period in 2016 to jump to fourth place and 8.8% share. No other nameplate manages 5% share, with the Mitsubishi Lancer EX (+26%), Kia Sorento (+118%) and Lexus LX (+50%) the most dynamic inside the Top 10. The Hyundai Ioniq is by far the most popular newcomer, landing directly at #12. The next best ranked is the Kia Niro (#38). Finally, let’s single out the Range Rover up a staggering 9-fold year-on-year (+821%) to break into the Jordanian Top 20.

The new light vehicle market in Jordan tumbles down 16% year-on-year over the first four months of 2017 to 13.287 registrations. Big event in the brands ranking: we have a new Nb.1 in the form of Hyundai limiting its fall to just -8% to improve its market share to 25,5%, overtaking Toyota (-38%) down from 28.8% over the FY2016 to 22.1% share now. Kia manages a rare year-on-year gain at +6% but remains in third place. The three aforementioned manufacturers hold a commanding 67.8% share of the Jordanian market so far this year. Among smaller brands, Chevrolet impresses with a 96% gain in 8th place with Honda (+89%), GMC (+208%), Porsche (+133%) and Ram (+467%) also showing sizeable gains.

The Jordanian new car market is down a harsh 27% year-on-year in 2016 to 44.913 registrations, with a big change atop the brands charts: Toyota (-6%) overtakes Hyundai (freefalling down 50%) to take the lead with an imposing 28.8% share vs. 22.2% a year ago. Hyundai for its part goes from 34.5% to 23.9% but sister brand Kia manages to improve to 19.2% in third place thanks to deliveries down “just” 25%. Jordanian 2016 sales are down just 12% if we remove Hyundai and Kia. Mitsubishi (-63%) and Nissan (-18%) hold onto their respective 4th and 5th positions, and are now followed by Isuzu up 5-fold to #7. Stunningly, the next five brands all gain ground: Mazda (+8%), Lexus (+10%), Suzuki (+30%), Ford (+33%) and Chevrolet (+54%). Further down, notice Citroen (+61%), Honda (+70%), GMC (+127%) and Jeep (+466%) all posting spectacular gains.

Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser more than doubles its volume (+111%) to brilliantly take the lead of the Jordanian charts whereas it only ranked 5th last year. The Hyundai Elantra (-16%) remains in 2nd place while the Kia Frontier (+26%) gains three spots to #3. All other nameplates inside the Top 10 lose market share due to greater-than-market drops bar the Kia Sorento (-27%), Sportage (-18%) and Isuzu D-Max (+480%). Leader in 2015, the Hyundai Accent falls 83% to #11 this year. Notice also the Toyota Prius C up to #17, the Hyundai Creta up to #19 and the Ford Mondeo up to #31.

Jordan January-July 2016: Land Cruiser SW and Pickup sovereign

Toyota Land Cruiser Jordan July 2016The Toyota Land Cruiser Station Wagon holds 11.5% of the Jordanian market so far in 2016…toyota-land-cruiser-pickup-jordan-july-2016-picture-courtesy-toyota-australia…while the Land Cruiser Pickup holds a round 10%.

The Jordanian new light vehicle market loses over 10,000 units (28%) year-on-year over the first seven months of 2016 to just 25.427 sales. This decline has one culprit: the imploding of the Hyundai-Kia tandem, losing a total 10.183 units year-over-year. From 37.4% share and a comfortable leadership a year ago, Hyundai drips 54% to 6.110 sales and 24% share this year while sister brand Kia is down 40% from 20.5% to 17.3% share. Mitsubishi is also hit at -59%, going from 11.3% share to 6.5% but remaining at #4. The big beneficiary of this momentous shift is Toyota, up 14% to see its Jordanian market share take off from 18.5% to 29.6%. Nissan (-16%) stays at #5 but Isuzu leaps 15 spots to #6, ahead of Lexus (+34%), Suzuki (+107%), Mazda (+28%) and Ford (+19%). Notice also Chevrolet (+33%), Honda (+36%), Citroen (+179%) and Jeep (+1856%) in great shape.

Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser cements its newfound leadership in Jordan through sales up a stunning 80% on the same period last year to 2.918 for a 11.5% market share. It is followed by its pickup counterpart, up an even more impressive 196% to 2.555 units and a round 10% share. The Hyundai Elantra plunges 28% to 7.7% share above the Kia Frontier (+9%), while the Hyundai Tucson (-55%), Accent (-76%) and Mitsubishi Lancer EX (-72%) all implode. Outside the Top 10, notice the Nissan Patrol shooting up 7 spots to #11, the Isuzu D-Max back among Jordan’s best-sellers at #12 while the big novelty for 2016 is the Hyundai Creta landing directly at a very robust 15th place with 2% of the market. The Suzuki Alto (#32), Ford Mondeo (#40) and BMW X5 (#47) also post spectacular gains.

The Jordanian new car market is down 18% year-on-year over the first four months of 2016 to 15.423 registrations, and this solely due to the two once-dominant Korean manufacturers Hyundai – halving its sales year-on-year to 3.679 – and Kia – down 36% to 2.519 units. Meanwhile Toyota gains a fantastic 44% to snap the top spot with 4.728 sales and 30.7% share. Other great performers over the period include Isuzu (#6), Lexus (#7), Suzuki (#8), Ford (#10) and Jeep (#15).

Hyundai Creta Jordan April 2016. Picture courtesy wheels.aeHyundai is down 50% this year in Jordan despite a great start from the Creta. 

The models ranking is undergoing a Land Cruiser invasion: the 200 Station Wagon is up 152% to take the overall lead with 12.3% share while the 70 Pick-up is up 314% to 2nd place and 9.8% share, relegating the Hyundai Elantra (-49%) to #3 and the Accent (-74%) to #7 whereas it led the ranking over the Full Year 2015. The Kia Frontier is up 4% to #4, the Nissan Patrol up 58% to #8, the Isuzu D-Max shoots up to #14 and the Hyundai Creta lands at a stunning 15th place with 290 sales.

The Jordanian new car market is feeling a little shaky in 2015: down 11% to 61.727 registrations. Following the exact same pattern as in Lebanon, Korean carmakers Hyundai and Kia are falling out of fashion (both are down 32%) fast whereas Toyota (+40%) and Mitsubishi (+119%) take off. Hyundai still leads the market by far with 21.268 sales but its (still very imposing) 34.5% share pales in comparison with the 45.1% it commended just a year ago. Toyota goes from 14.1% penetration in 2014 to 22.2% and Kia drops from 24.2% to 18.6% while Mitsubishi shoots up from 4.4% to 10.9%. Some very significant structural changes at play here. Notice also Lexus up 70% and 5 spots to #6, Mazda up 20%, BMW up 28%, Land Rover up 53%, Suzuki up 112% and Honda up 143%.

Toyota Land Cruiser Jordan 2015The Toyota Land Cruiser surges up 141% to #5. 

The Hyundai supremacy still presides over the top of the models ranking, but 2015 could be the last time it does so. Leader in 2014, the Elantra loses over half its sales (-51%) to drop to 2nd place at 5.215 deliveries while the Accent edges past to #1 thanks to volumes up 23% to 5.711 and 9.3% share. The Japanese herd is catching up fast: the Mitsubishi Lancer EX is up 240% to #3 – reiterating a similar performance across the Middle-Eastern region and instantly becoming a blockbuster here, the Toyota Hilux up 25% to #4 and the Land Cruiser up 141% to #5. The Toyota Land Cruiser Pickup (+417%), Hyundai Starex (+172%), Nissan Patrol (+100%) and Mitsubishi Pajero (+110%) also shine.

Jordan 1st Quarter 2015: Hyundai Elantra and Accent in control

Hyundai Elantra Jordan March 2015. Picture courtesy motortrend.comThe Hyundai Elantra is the best-selling nameplate in Jordan so far this year.

* See the Top 10 best-selling models by clicking on the title *

For the first time in almost two years (since June 2013) I can give you official sales data in Jordan where 13.288 new light vehicles found a new home over the First Quarter of 2015. Korean manufacturers Hyundai (39.9% share) and Kia (21.5%) have a stranglehold on the Jordanian market, with Toyota rounding up the podium at 18.8% share. Mitsubishi, Nissan, Lexus and Peugeot follow. Model-wise, the Hyundai Elantra holds onto the pole position it has retained for the past couple of years, but this time to battle is tight with its smaller counterpart the Hyundai Accent at 1.480 sales vs. 1.456 over the period. The Toyota Hilux ranks third with 7.1% and is the only non-Korean nameplate inside the Top 10 along with the Land Cruiser at #6 and the Mitsubishi Lancer EX at #7.
