Jordan 2011: Hyundai Elantra and Nissan Sunny strong

Hyundai Elantra

There is no official car sales data available for Jordan, but thanks to James and some 2011-2012 YouTube videos of the streets of Amman I can share with you some info about this market. Now of course this is complete speculation so please get it touch if you have anything more!

The Jordanian market has a history of Korean brands domination, even though they seem to have released their grip somewhat over the last 3 to 5 years. The streets of Amman are literally swarming with 1992 Kia Sephias, 1997 Daewoo Nubiras, 2004 Hyundai Elantras and the 1995 & 2000 Hyundai Accents built in neighbouring Egypt.

The Nissan Sunny sold in Jordan is in fact a previous generation Samsung SM3

Some of this heritage has ‘translated’ today into the strength of the Hyundai Elantra, which I will venture is possibly the best-selling car in Jordan especially since the arrival of the new generation in late 2011 (pictured). The Mitsubishi Lancer previous generation is still on the catalogue and still selling very well, it could be on the podium this year along with the Nissan Sunny, a rebadged previous generation Samsung SM3.

Other popular models in Jordan include the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry, Nissan Sunny Classic, Kia Picanto and Honda Civic. Peugeot also seems to be doing relatively well with the 207 and 206+. As far as pick-ups are concerned, the Toyota Hilux, Nissan Pickup and Mitsubishi L200 dominate.
