Preliminary results for Turkey with the overall market (Passenger Cars and Light Commercial Vehicles) down 10% on 2011 to 777,761 registrations. Thanks to Austin we have an All-vehicles Top 15, including LCVs which are traditionally the best-sellers in the country, a bit like in China. However for the first time in potentially a decade, the most popular vehicle in Turkey in 2012 is actually a Passenger Car: the Fiat Linea is up 4 spots to #1 with 33,351 sales and 4.3% and is followed by the Fiat Doblo at 30,239 units and 3.9%, down 19% while 2011’s leader the Ford Transit Connect is down 24% to round up this year’s podium with 28,971 sales and 3.4%.

In fact the entire Top 8 best-sellers all lose ground on 2011: the Ford Transit is down 17% at #4, the Renault Fluence down 11% at #5, Fiat Fiorino down 21% to #6, Ford Fiesta down 10% to #7 and the Opel Astra Hatchback down 17% to #8.
