Turkish consumers bought 71,596 new vehicles in July, split into 55,712 passenger cars (up a beautiful 25% year-on-year) and 15,884 LCV, bringing the year-to-date total to 453,339 units (PC/LCV split: 347,818 up 20% and 105,521). No surprises in pole position: the Fiat Linea leads the way as has become the norm over the last 2 years with 3,065 sales and 4.3%. The Renault Symbol is up 5 spots on June to land back in 2nd place at 2,479 units and 3.5%, slightly above its year-to-date level of 3.4%. The Renault Fluence rounds up the podium both this month and year-to-date at 3.4% and 3.3% respectively.
Lots of change below! Volkswagen has an excellent showing (it is back to #1 brand in the country with an impressive 15% share this month): the Passat is up 10 ranks to #4 with 2,253 sales and 3.1% while the Golf is up 12 to #6 at 2,071 units and 2.9%. The Ford Focus sedan also does well even though it is down 2 ranks to #5. The Fiat Fiorino LCV is up 5 spots to #7 but the best performer in the Turkish Top 10 this month is delivered by the Toyota Corolla: up 21 ranks to break into the Top 10 for the first time since last December with 1,910 sales and 2.7%. This could be due to the old generation having its prices slashed to use all the stock up or the locally-produced new generation already being delivered to dealerships very successful, or both…
Further down, the Mercedes CLA continues to amaze, up a further 10 ranks on June to #37 which is its highest ranking anywhere in the world (!), also making it the brand’s best-seller in the country. Notice also the Dacia Sandero up 5 ranks to #19, the Dacia Lodgy up 7 to #32, Seat Leon up 8 to #35, Mercedes Citan up 55 to #50, Fiat 500L up 17 to #54 and the Renault Captur surprisingly down 13 spots to #55.
