Model-wise, over the First Quarter the overall lead remains with the Hyundai Ioniq (+6.7%) sporting an uptick in a declining market, and Hyundai even manages a 1-2 with the i10 (+20.6%) jumping up to #2 ahead of the Kia Picanto (+6.3%), Hyundai Tucson (-14.1%), Kia Niro (+14.6%) and Sportage (-28.1%) in a Top 6 entirely Korean like it was also the case over the Full Year 2018. The Skoda Octavia (-10.6%) is the best-selling non-Korean nameplate but should be overtaken by the Toyota RAV4 (+152.2%) in the coming months if its impressive Q1 trajectory continues further on.
