The Omani new car market is down 7.3% year-on-year in 2017 to 145.651 registrations. Toyota maintains its stranglehold on the market by evolving like it at -7% to a gargantuan 49.5% share. Nissan shoots up 45% to gain almost seven percentage points of market share, going from 12.3% in 2016 to 19.2% this year. Meanwhile  Hyundai freefalls 31% to see its penetration drop from 10.2% to 7.5% in just one year. Kia is up 10% and one spot to #4, toppling Lexus (-17%), while Isuzu (-44%), Mitsubishi (-6%), Mazda (-8%) and Jeep (-24%) all camp on their positions. Honda edges up 2% and breaks into the Top 10 brands at #10. All other brands present in Oman endure steep declines bar Aston Martin (+200%), Chrysler (+98%), Maserati (+14%) and Hino (+7%). Genesis lands at a very shy 37th place with just 18 units sold.

The Nissan Juke is up 88% to #6 in Oman in 2017.
