For these two years I only have annual registrations of new car sales in the country and a Top 10 best-selling brands. 1992 was a new record year for the car market in Greece at 199,004 units.

Nissan is the most popular brand in the country over the period, peaking at 18,107 sales in 1992, 13,150 of which were the locally produced Nissan Sunny, making it the best-selling model in the country that year. Fiat comes second in 1991 and 1992, the Uno and Tipo being the most popular, and is followed by Toyota (Corolla and Starlet are hits).

The period also marks the first appearance in the Top 10 brands ranking in Greece of Hyundai, launched in 1989 in the country and already #8 in 1991…
