The Turkish new light vehicle market continues to stand a notch below its level of 2016 with June sales down 9% year-on-year to 83.658 with two less selling days due to national holiday, with the year-to-date tally also down 9% to 401.158 registrations. The two brand leaders however go against the grain with Renault up 2% to 14.6% share and Fiat up a solid 13% to 12.8% of the market. Below, Volkswagen (-24%), Ford (-19%), Opel (-30%), Dacia (-15%) and Mercedes (-30%) all stumble while Hyundai (+10%) and Toyota (+24%) shine. Outside the Top 10, Audi (+11%), Seat (+26%), Honda (+57%) and Subaru (+77%) all post robust gains. In contrast, Volvo (-20%), Suzuki (-30%), Kia (-32%), BMW (-47%) and Mitsubishi (-59%) implode.
The Renault Clio is up to #2 in Turkey in June.
The Fiat Egea (+35%) remains the most popular nameplate in the country ahead of the Renault Clio (+72%) and Renault Megane (+466%). The Ford Courier (-8%) and Toyota Corolla (+34%) round out the Top 5 while the Opel Astra (-31%), Ford Focus (-38%) and Fiat Doblo (-17%) are in great difficulty. Further down, notice the Honda Civic up 98%, the Seat Leon up 59%, the Peugeot 301 up 54%, the Peugeot 3008 up 554% thanks to the new generation and the Ford Kuga up 612%. The Toyota C-HR leads all recent launches (<12 months) at #45 ahead of the Skoda Kodiaq at #58, the Renault Koleos at #90 and the Audi Q2 at #114.
