The Dodge Journey has an excellent month at #10 while the Renault Duster is starting to make waves in Mexico too, estimated to be #13 this month at 1,331 sales…

    Thank God Mexico has been relatively free of korean cars and hopefully my country will remain this way. I can’t wait to see the day in which Fiat cancels the arrangement Chrysler Mexico has with Hyundai…

    Nooooo! I hope Lexus will never sell cars in Mexico. Toyota is so overpriced here! Should a LS cost here the same as a Bentley or a Rolls Royce? If it was sold in Mexico, probably it would!!! And I would pay the third part of the cost of a S-Class or a 7 Series!

  4. Hyundai cars are sold through Dodge with 2 models, the i10 and Accent. Ram sells 2 versions of the Hyundai van h100, diesel or gasoline powered. Samsung-renault cars are sold through Renault and finally there’s no Kia or Saangyong cars in Mexico. @Pete M

  5. Hi Matt

    From the list it seems the koreans havent been able to sell a single car in mexico- is that a fact? If so it’s really surprising given their successes elsewhere…
    Anyway so good to see mercedes’ sales outpacing bmw’s for once!
