After withholding the disclosure of its September sales figures, Renault-owned low-cost brand Dacia is back with a vengeance in Algeria in October with sales up 38% year-on-year to 5.749 – double the amount of any other carmaker in the market, including parent company Renault at 2.863 (-17%). Hyundai is up one spot to #3, overtaking Peugeot and Toyota – both down a harsh 39% on October 2014. Despite sales down 38%, Seat ranks at a cool 6th place whereas Volkswagen is outside the Top 10 for the 2nd month running. The Dacia Logan regains control of the Algerian models sales charts, dislodging its twin the locally-assembled Renault Symbol down to #3 this month. In fact, Dacia places its three hero models inside the October Top 6 with the Sandero at #2 and the Duster at #6.
