In an extremely challenging context, only two carmakers remain truly active in Syria: Kia whose sales have more than doubled year-on-year (+108%) to take a 49.7% market share, overstepping sister brand Hyundai (+16%) at 48.9%. The two Koreans obliterate the Syrian market once again with a combined market share of 98.6% vs. 98.8% in 2017 and 98.5% in 2016. Nissan (-3%) holds just 1.3% of a market back up 48% to 4.753 registrations. Genesis makes its first appearance in the Syrian sales charts with one lonely G90 sold. Only 14 nameplates have found at least one buyer in Syria over the period, with the Kia Sorento (+278%) and Cerato (+871%) dislodging the Hyundai Tucson (-30%) from the top spot. The Hyundai Elantra (+42%) and HR Truck (+597%) round up the Top 5 with the Kia Frontier (+269%) and Hyundai Starex (+199%) also in great shape in a Top 10 that is getting more and more functional with a fair share of Light Commercial Vehicles. Nissan places the Sunny at #11 and the Patrol at #12.
