The middle-eastern region isn’t showing its best new car sales form so far in 2016, yet Lebanon is one of the less affected market with a minor 2% year-on-year drop to 15.674 registrations after four months. Toyota cements its domination of the market thanks to sales up by a splendid 31% to reach 4.566 units for a 29.1% share, exactly the same figure as the combined sales of #2 Kia at 14.8% (-11%) and #3 Nissan at 14.3% (-5%). Mazda (+48%), Peugeot (+123%) and Infiniti (+126%) make themselves noticed whereas Mitsubishi (-24%), Ford (-62%), Land Rover (-62%) and Audi (-68%) fall apart.

Meanwhile, the Kia Picanto (-28%) and Rio (-23%) drop sharply. Notice also the Nissan Sunny (+42%), Hyundai Accent (+152%), Toyota Hilux (+51%), Renault Sandero (+203%) and Kia Cerato ((+127%) delivering splendid gains inside the Top 15.
