* NOW UPDATED with the Top 62 All-brands and Top 70 best-selling models! Click on title to see. Many thanks to Juan Felipe *

Thanks to Juan Felipe we can go on our biannual update of the Colombian new car market, down 13% year-on-year over the first 6 months of 2013 to 140,269 registrations. We are now looking at 290,000 units for the Full Year 2013, which would be down 8% on 2012 but still the third best result in history for Colombia after the 324,570 units reached in 2011 and the 315,968 units from 2012. Big change atop the models ranking: launched at the end of last year to replace all generations of Chevrolet Aveo (leader over the first 6 months of 2012), the Chevrolet Sail takes the lead thanks to 8,268 sales and 5.9% share.

As a result the Renault Sandero/Stepway, #1 over the Full Year 2012, is kicked down to 2nd place at 6,259 units and 4.5% while the Renault Logan is up 2 spots year-on-year to #3 in spite of sales down 11% to 5,010 sales and 3.6% share. Both Chevrolet Spark GT (-23%) and Hyundai City Taxi (-16%) drop one rank to #4 and #5 respectively, whereas the Renault Duster is up 42% and 5 spots compared to this time last year to #6 at 4,796 units and 3.4% which is the ranking it held over the Full Year 2012.

Renault Sandero Stepway Colombia June 2013The Renault Sandero (no new gen yet) still ranks at an impressive #2.

Another nice surprise for Chevrolet follows: the Tracker (aka Trax) lands directly inside the Top 10 for its first appearance in the Colombian ranking at #7 with an excellent 4,297 sales and 3.1%. Colombia is the first country in the world where this model has managed a Top 10 ranking so far… Last piece of good news for the American manufacturer: the Chevrolet Sonic, #35 over the Full Year 2012, is up to #11 thanks to 2,678 units and 1.9%.

Further down, the Nissan March is up 32% and 11 spots to #13, the Chevrolet N300 (aka Wuling Rongguang) remains the most popular ‘Chinese’ model at #18 in spite of sales down 25%, the Renault Clio is up 5917% (!) to #28, the Ford Ecosport up 177% to #30, Kia new Sportage up 198% to #31, Ford Escape up 205% to #32 while the Ford Focus (#49) and Chevrolet Cobalt (#50) are the other two all-new models in the Top 50 over the period. Notice also the Chery Van at #42 (-46%), JAC Veloce at #46 (+11%), DongFeng Van at #47 (+40%) and Chery Yoki up 15933% to #52.

  1. Very nice ranking. I think the sales figures of Spark (GT and the old one) should be together as they are 2 generations of the same nameplate. The same for the Aveo. This way, the Spark would be the best-selling car in Colombia.
