After dropping 21% during the same period a year ago, the Saudi Arabian new vehicle market plunges another 30% over the first four months of 2017 to just 158.690 units. Toyota follows the market at -30% and sees its share thaw slightly to 30.2% but Hyundai loses four percentage points of market share to 18.5% due to a 43% drop. Kia improves to 7.9% thanks to sales down ‘just’ 18%, overtaking Nissan down 33% to 7.7%. Isuzu (-27%) rounds up the Top 5 again, while Chevrolet (-32%) and Mazda (-16%) take advantage of Ford’s freefall (-52%) to gain one spot each to #6 and #7 respectively. The best performances in the Top 10 are delivered by Honda (+33%) and Renault (+41%) going against the grain to post significant gains. Further down, Dodge (+204%), Jeep returning to market (+1172%), Land Rover (+27%), BMW (+72%) and Chrysler (+439%) all impress while Genesis lands at #23.

After the Hyundai Accent took control last year, we have another leader this year in Saudi Arabia: the Toyota Camry, thanks to a 37% year-on-year surge to almost double its market share to 7.7%. The Hyundai Accent (-39%) is knocked down to 2nd place and 5.7% share, with the Toyota Corolla (-38%) and Hyundai Elantra (-41%) also receding one spot compared to a year ago. The Hyundai Sonata (-25%) gains one ranking to break into the Top 5, meaning there are now three Hyundais in the Top 5 vs. two Toyotas. The Hilux (-46%) and Yaris (-40%) struggle while the Nissan Sunny gains 92% to land in 7th place vs. #17 a year ago. The Mazda6 restrains its fall to -6% and breaks into the Saudi Top 10. Justifying its spectacular jump, Renault has the Captur at #21 (#60 a year ago) and the new Talisman at #31. We have two newcomers in the Top 100: the Genesis G80 at #77 and the Geely X7 Sport at #81.
