1/11 update: Now with Top 25 models.

New light vehicle sales in Turkey drop a steep -36.9% year-on-year in September to 57.141 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up 13.4% to 559.724. Fiat (-40.1%) remains by far the best-selling carmaker in the country, selling more than twice the amount of any other brand. Renault (-64.2%) and Ford (-57.4%) fall even faster than the market to round out the podium. In complete contrast, Hyundai (+61.7%) scores the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 15 to remain at #4 with 8% share vs. 5.2% year-to-date. Honda (+51.3%), Dacia (+38.6%) and Peugeot (+15.5%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10, with Citroen (-25.9%) containing its loss somewhat but Toyota (-60.7%) and Volkswagen (-38%) suffering. Further down, Suzuki (+219.8%), Subaru (+125.5%), DS (+83.3%), Land Rover (+67.9%), Iveco (+62.7%), Volvo (+33.7%) and BMW (+7.8%) are among additional gainers.

Over in the models ranking, the Fiat Egea (-48.1%) loses almost half its September 2020 volume but easily retains the pole position with 10.5% share, identical to its year-to-date level. The Fiat Doblo (+0.8%) is up five spots on August to #2 while the Renault Clio (-71.9%) is up one to #3 but completely falls apart year-on-year. The Ford Transit/Tourneo (-28%) and Toyota Corolla (-62.1%) round out the Top 5 above a Dacia Duster (+29.5%) in outstanding shape. The Honda Civic (+7.8%) also manages a year-on-year uptick while the Hyundai i20 is up 13 spots on last month to #8. Notice also the Peugeot 3008 (+99.3%), Dacia Sandero (#15), Audi A3 (+10%), Nissan Juke (#20) and Opel Grandland X (#23) all very dynamic.
