December is traditionally the strongest month of the year for Turkish new car sales and 2013 is no exception, with 129,718 registrations. Whereas this generation had only topped Turkish car sales twice before (in November 2011 and last month), the Ford Fiesta manages to hold on its pole position for the 2nd month running thanks to 4,879 sales and 3.8% share, spectacularly lifting it up from #12 year-to-date at end-November to #6 in the final 2013 ranking. The Renault Symbol is back up from #7 last month to its usual self at #2 with 4,360 units and 3.4%, while Ford places a second model onto the podium this month: the Focus sedan is up 7 spots on November to #3 with 4,347 sales and 3.4%.
Other great performers this month in Turkey include the Opel Astra hatchback up 11 ranks on last month to #5 with 3.1% share vs. #13 and 2.2% over the Full Year, the Toyota Corolla remaining within the Top 10 for the 6th consecutive month at #9, the Peugeot 301 up 5 spots to #14 with a best-ever 2,992 models and 2.3% share, the BMW 5 Series up to #27 vs. #40 in 2013 and the Mercedes E-Class up to #31 vs. #51.
