After a two month-hiatus Algerian new car sales data is back on BSCB! Once again lots of change atop the sales charts. Dominated by the all-new Renault Symbol and Clio IV for the most part of the first half of 2013, the Algerian models ranking returns to traditional leader the Dacia Logan in October at 1,618 sales, thanks to the new generation now widespread in the country’s dealerships. It’s interesting to witness both twins (Renault Symbol and Dacia Logan) are on sale next to each other here, with the Logan positioned below the Symbol in price and engine size in order not to cannibalise it fully.
Never #1 but very consistent each and every month of this year so far, the Peugeot 301 lodges another extremely solid score in October: #2 with 1,558 units sold, that’s only 60 less than the Dacia Logan. As a result the 301 has secured a very impressive 2nd position in the year-to-date ranking with 19,620 sales below only the Dacia Logan at 22,649, and Peugeot is the #1 brand in the country at 65,132 units vs. 59,114 for Renault.
The Kia Picanto makes a remarkable reappearance inside the Algerian Top 10 at a fantastic third place this month thanks to 1,507 sales. It is followed by the other sensation of the year: the Seat Ibiza at #4 with 1,208 units after incredibly topping the sales charts in September! The Renault Symbol is relegated to #6 while the Renault Kangoo shines at a rare #7 spot.
