The VW T-Roc breaks into the Turkish Top 25 for the first time.
New light vehicle sales in Turkey confirm they are on the mend with volumes up for the second straight month and only the 2nd time in the past 19 months in October at a spectacular +127.5% year-on-year to 49.075 units, yet they remain down -46.5% on October 2017. Year-to-date sales are now down -31.9% to 330.284. Volkswagen (+236.2%) almost doubles the market growth and gains two spots on September to snap the brands pole position with 13.1% share vs. 10.7% so far in 2019. The German carmaker distances Fiat (+129.1%) which reclaims the YTD top spot off Renault (+86%) down 4 ranks on last month to #5. Ford (+132.7%) is up one to #3 and Peugeot (+336.1%) manages the largest gain in the Top 6 and steps up two spots to #4. Opel (+378.2%) and Skoda (+196.8%) also outperform the market in the Top 10, with Audi (+676.9%), Seat (+327%), Citroen (+330.5%), Suzuki (+241.8%) and BMW (+205%) also outstanding further down.
The Toyota Corolla (+65.5%) snaps its second victory of the past year after November 2018 despite trailing the market quite significantly and puts an end to 10 consecutive months of reign by the Fiat Egea (-6.4%) which however remains ultra-dominant year-to-date at 10.1% share. The Renault Clio (+481.7%) posts a spectacular year-on-year gain to remain at #2, but the remainder of the Top 9 all underperform, with the Ford Focus (+119.8%) performing best and the Honda Civic (-56.1%) the worst. The Audi A3 (+441.4%), Citroen C-Elysée (+383.3%), VW Polo (+271.1%) and Renault Symbol (+253.2%) also impress further down, with the VW T-Roc breaking into the Turkish Top 25 for the first time at #24.
