Saudi new car sales are up a healthy 14% year-on-year in February at 55,805 registrations, with the year-to-date total up 12% at 106,640 units. As it was the case over the Full Year 2011, the Toyota Hilux is the best-selling vehicle in the country in February with a very strong 10.2% market share thanks to 5,675 sales. Is spite of a weak 4th place in January the Hilux is also #1 year-to-date at 8,413 units and 7.9%.

Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai’s pressure is however getting stronger by the month in Saudi Arabia, with the Korean carmaker placing no less than 3 models in the February Top 5! The Hyundai Accent ranks #2 for the 4th time in the last 6 months and breaks its volume and market share records at an outstanding 4,473 sales and 8%!

#1 in January, the Toyota Corolla is down to #3 this month, followed by the new gen Hyundai Elantra also delivering its highest ranking, volume and share since its May 2011 launch with an impressive 2,552 units and 4.6%. In 5th place the Hyundai Sonata lodges its third best volume in the last 12 months with 2,189 sales and 3.9% share. #2 in 2011, the Toyota Camry is down to #6 this month while the new generation spreads across the country.

Ford Expedition

Other great performers in February include the Ford Expedition up to #8 with 1,346 sales, its highest ranking in over a year in the county, the GMC Sierra at #20 vs.#37 in 2011, the Chevrolet Cruze at #24 vs.#41, Ford Edge at #34 vs.#64, Chevrolet Sonic at #35 vs.#96, Ford Flex at #47 vs.#89 and Chrysler 300C at #60 vs.#124.

Peugeot 3008

Peugeot seems to be doing something right in Saudi Arabia right now: whereas it had no model within the Saudi Top 150 over the Full Year 2011, it places no less than 5 in February! The 3008 is #125, followed by the 206 at #132, the 308 at #135, the 5008 at #141 and the 207 at #144… Notice also Lincoln placing the Town Car at #148 and the MKT at #150.
