For the first time on BestSellingCarsBlog, I can offer you an all-models ranking for Russia. Exciting times indeed! So let’s get right into it and first notice the dynamism of the Russian new car market: on top of reaching a record 2,935,111 registrations, we welcome 25 all-new models in the ranking this year, led by the Renault Duster (#17), Lada Largus (#45), Mazda CX-5 (#56), Peugeot 408 (#97) and Kia Optima (#110).
Among the Top 100 best-sellers, great performers include the Nissan Juke up 102% to #26, the Skoda Yeti up 111% to #38, SsangYong Actyon up 103% to #39, VW Jetta up 377% to #43, Geely MK up 159% to #54, Great Wall Hover up 127% to #55, Chevrolet Orlando up 1258% to #77, Range Rover Evoque up 487% to #84, Toyota Hilux up 277% to #85, BMW X3 up 192% to #87 and the Audi Q3 up 1491% to #91.
