As usual Turkish car sales data come to us with a bit of delay, and the great start of the year continues with February up 26% year-on-year to 36,814 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 62,649 units, up 25% on 2012. Renault impresses this month and places two models in the first two spots: the Renault Fluence holds the pole position for only the third time ever after January 2012 and October 2012 thanks to 1,856 sales and 5% while the Renault Clio is stable at a fantastic second place with 1,785 units and 4.8%. The VW Jetta, leader last month, is down to #5 but remains #1 year-to-date for now with 3,091 sales ahead of the Fluence (3,007) and Clio (3,001).
The Fiat Linea, sovereign in 2012, is stuck in third position at 1,688 units and has only been #1 once in the last 5 months (in December). Notice also the VW Polo up 5 spots to #4, the Renault Symbol stable at 4% share in 6th place, the Toyota Auris up from outside the Top 25 in January directly to #8, the Peugeot 301 slicing its ranking in two at #12 and the Citroen C-Elysee up 2 ranks to #17.
