The Syrian new car market edges up 9.3% year-on-year so far in 2018 to 8.720 registrations, but understandably given the dire situation the country finds itself in, only a handful of carmakers remain active here. Hyundai (+2%) holds onto the brands lead with 59.7% share but it’s Kia (+48%) that impresses this year, leaping up to 39.6% share. Nissan (-23%) only manages 63 sales. The Hyundai Elantra (+95%) almost doubles its sales year-on-year to brilliantly snap the models pole position with 25.7% share, distancing the 2017 leader the Hyundai Tucson (-27%), the Kia Cerato (+462%) and Sorento (+96%). The best-selling non-Korean nameplate is the Nissan Sunny at #12.
