Following in the ranking, two old Hyundai models see their sales increase significantly over 2009: the 2003 Hyundai Atos grows 13% to 7,822 sales and 4.6% market share, and the 2000 Hyundai Accent (two generations ago) grows 10% to 6,889 registrations. An interesting trend that shows how Hyundai adapts its range to maximise sales in African markets.
