Turkey June 2019: Egea (+66.1%), Clio (+38.9%) & Corolla (+43.4%) euphoric in market down -16.4%
The Fiat Egea holds 11.3% of the Turkish market in June and 11.9% so far in 2019.
One year ago in June 2018 the Turkish market nightmarish freefall started (-39%), it is therefore logical that this month’s -16.4% drop is somewhat muted compared what we have witnessed in the past 12 months: there isn’t much room to go further down. The year-to-date tally now stands at a meagre 195.144 units halfway through 2019, a ghastly -44.8% fall and the lowest H1 volume in Turkey this decade, the only year coming close being 2010 (228.000)… Renault (-7.8%) contains its loss to the single-digits and snaps the brands top spot for the first time since January, relegating YTD leader Fiat (+27.1%) to #2 even though it sports a magnificent year-on-year gain. Toyota (+20.6%) and Peugeot (+3.2%) are the only other gainers in the Top 12, with Alfa Romeo (+500%), Mitsubishi (+173.1%), Mini (+156.1%), Jaguar (+137.5%), Ferrari (+100%), Suzuki (+92.9%), DS (+66.7%), Audi (+33.4%), Iveco (+25.2%) and Ssangyong (+22.2%) joining the ranks further down. BMW (-54%), Hyundai (-44.7%), Ford (-41.8%), Citroen (-35.4%) and Dacia (-31.7%) are hit particularly hard.
Model-wise, the Fiat Egea (+66.1%) continues to ignore the surrounding crisis at a mammoth 11.3% share, but this month the entire podium is lifted up spectacularly: the Renault Clio (+38.9%) hits a round 10% share and the Toyota Corolla (+43.4%) is up to 5.5%. The Mitsubishi L200 (+311%), Audi A3 (+279.4%), VW Golf (+132%), Hyundai Tucson (+75.4%), Skoda Octavia (+51.1%), Peugeot 3008 (+40.6%) and Dacia Duster (+28.6%) also score fantastic upticks in the remainder of the Top 25.
