Despite being embroiled in civil war with the majority of the country not controlled by Syrian government forces, we have access today to official car sales figures for Syria for only the second time on BSCB and the first time in 3 years, since March 2012. Just under 5.000 new light vehicles found a new home in Syria over the First Quarter of 2015, and the market is more than ever dominated by Korean manufacturers, the only ones keeping an activity in the country. Hyundai leads the charge at 52.5% share followed by Kia at 45.4% with Nissan coming third at a meagre 1.4% share. The Hyundai Elantra is the most popular nameplate in the country with a majestic 26.4% share, ahead of the Kia Sportage at 12.2%, Hyundai i10 at 12% and Kia Frontier Pickup at 10.2%.
