New car sales in Jordan dive by a ghastly 40.4% year-on-year over the first 10 months of 2018 to just 23.855 registrations,  down 39.2% when comparing apples with apples and removing Audi, BMW, Porsche and Volkswagen from 2017 figures as these manufacturers have failed to report sales for 2018. Toyota (-25%) resists much better than the market to overtake both Hyundai (-50%) and Kia (-50%) to snap the brands pole position with 25.5% share. Nissan (+14%) is the only Top 13 manufacturer to manage a year-on-year gain to climb onto the last step of the podium at 7.8% share, distancing Mitsubishi (-60%), Isuzu (-18%), Lexus (-48%) and Land Rover (-27%). Honda (-3%), Ford (-6%), Suzuki (-18%) also resist well but it’s Renault (+52%) that impresses the most among large carmakers, with Volvo (+63%), Jeep (+43%) and Citroen (+12%) among the other great performers. Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser (-32%) snaps the lead away from the Kia Frontier (-56%) while the Hyundai Tucson (+15%) and Toyota Hilux (+106%) manage to gain ground year-on-year to lift up 4 and 11 spots respectively to #3 and #4, distancing the Hyundai Elantra (-61%) and Sonata (-63%) both in freefall. Notice also the Nissan Patrol (+50%) and Isuzu TF (+17%) climbing up the ranking as well. The Ford Ecosport (#74) and Suzuki Baleno (#76) are the best-selling recent launches for the year (<12 months).

After slowing down its decline to -3% a year ago, the Jordanian new car market is back to plummeting sales at a harsh -29% to 15.358 units halfway through 2018, a drop that only marginally improves to -27% when taking into account the same set of manufacturers year-on-year (in effect removing the VW and BMW Groups that have stopped reporting in the region for 2018). Overthrown in 2017, Toyota (-11%) manages to reclaim the brands top spot thanks to a relatively slim drop, whereas Kia (-22%) remains in 2nd place thanks to a smaller-than-market decline and Hyundai (-53%) implodes to #3. Land Rover (+29%), Suzuki (+19%) and Nissan (+17%) brilliantly manage double-digit gains in the remainder of the Top 10, Isuzu edges up 2% to #5 but Mitsubishi (-74%), Chevrolet (-60%) and Lexus (-28%) all endure painful falls. Further down, notice Ram (+332%), Volvo (+250%), Dodge (+233%), Renault (+211%), Citroen (+204%) and Hino (+140%) ignoring the adverse market conditions to post spectacular gains.

Over in the models ranking, the Kia Frontier (-30%) remains the most popular vehicle in Jordan despite a hefty fall thawing its market share from 11.8% to 11.6%, and is now followed by the Toyota Land Cruiser (-30%) up one spot on a year ago despite also falling just a little faster than the market, in fact benefitting from the total imploding of the Hyundai Elantra (-81%) down from #2 over H1 2017 to #11 now. The Hyundai Tucson (+31%), Kia Sorento (+23%) and Toyota Hilux (+98%) complete the Top 5, totally defying the falling market to lodge stunning gains, as is also the case for the Isuzu TF (+63%), Toyota Corolla (+36%) and Kia Cerato (+18%) in the remainder of the Top 10 that sees the Hyundai Sonata (-67%) and Toyota Land Cruiser Pickup (-38%) sink. The Hyundai Starex (+584%), Toyota Fortuner (+583%) and Nissan Kicks (+390%) record the largest year-on-year gains in the Top 20 and the Renault Zoe (#39) is the most popular new launch ahead of the Hyundai i10 (#55) and Renault Dokker (#59).

After being in negative for most of the year, the Jordanian new car market finally edges up 0.6% year-on-year in 2017 to 45.184 registrations. Big change in the brands ranking: both Hyundai (+5%) and Kia (+30%) overtake 2016 leader Toyota (-28%) and the two Korean sister brands end the year only 96 sales away from each other and the only ones above 10.000 units. Below, Mitsubishi (+18%), Nissan (-7%), Isuzu (-7%) and Chevrolet (+4%) hold onto their ranking as does Lexus even though the Japanese premium brand surges 5% on 2016. Land Rover (+324%) posts by far the largest gain in the Top 15, with Honda (+62%), Volkswagen (+42%), GMC (+40%), BMW (+13%) and Suzuki (+12%) also shine.

The Hyundai Sonata shoots up 4-fold to #3 overall in 2017.

Model-wise, the Nissan Frontier (+73%) takes control, seeing its share bump up to 14.5% and passing the Toyota Land Cruiser (-34%) while the Hyundai Sonata is up 4-fold and 11 spots to leap to #3 overall. The Hyundai Elantra (-25%) is down two ranks to #4, the Toyota Land Cruiser Pickup is up 103% and 8 spots to #5 ahead of the Mitsubishi Lancer EX (+22%), Hyundai Tucson (-10%) and Kia Sorento (+24%). The Hyundai Ioniq ends its first full year of sales at #9, and the Kia Niro and Nissan Kicks co-lead all 2017 launches at equal #40.

The Jordanian new car market slows down its fall over the First Half of 2017 at -3% to 21.606 registrations, with Korean brands confirming they are now the hot ticket in town. After Hyundai overstepped Toyota over the first four months of the year, it is now the turn of Kia to do so halfway through 2017. As a result, Hyundai (+12%) now holds 27.2% of the Jordanian market above Kia (+28%) holding 22.7% and Toyota (-32%) at 21.1%. These three brands account for a whopping 71% of all Jordanian car sales over the period. Lexus (+19%), BMW (+19%), Chevrolet (+60%) and most impressively Land Rover (+193%) also shine within the Top 10. Beyond, let’s notice Audi (+28%), Volkswagen (+32%), Honda (+75%), Porsche (+80%), GMC (+157%) and Ram (+460%) all posting spectacular gains.

The Hyundai Elantra ranks #2 in Jordan so far in 2017. 

The models ranking gets reshuffled once again with different leaders even compared to two months ago. The Kia Frontier takes the overall lead thanks to deliveries up 60% to an imposing 11.8% market share, and is followed by the Hyundai Elantra up 51% to 10.4%. Leader over the Full Year 2016 and after four months this year, the Toyota Land Cruiser (-15%) drops to third place overall halfway though 2017, still holding a robust 10.2% market share. Below, the Hyundai Sonata is up 5-fold on the same period in 2016 to jump to fourth place and 8.8% share. No other nameplate manages 5% share, with the Mitsubishi Lancer EX (+26%), Kia Sorento (+118%) and Lexus LX (+50%) the most dynamic inside the Top 10. The Hyundai Ioniq is by far the most popular newcomer, landing directly at #12. The next best ranked is the Kia Niro (#38). Finally, let’s single out the Range Rover up a staggering 9-fold year-on-year (+821%) to break into the Jordanian Top 20.

The new light vehicle market in Jordan tumbles down 16% year-on-year over the first four months of 2017 to 13.287 registrations.

The Jordanian new car market is down a harsh 27% year-on-year in 2016 to 44.913 registrations, with a big change atop the brands charts: Toyota (-6%) overtakes Hyundai (freefalling down 50%) to take the lead with an imposing 28.8% share vs. 22.2% a year ago. Hyundai for its part goes from 34.5% to 23.9% but sister brand Kia manages to improve to 19.2% in third place thanks to deliveries down “just” 25%. Jordanian 2016 sales are down just 12% if we remove Hyundai and Kia. Mitsubishi (-63%) and Nissan (-18%) hold onto their respective 4th and 5th positions, and are now followed by Isuzu up 5-fold to #7. Stunningly, the next five brands all gain ground: Mazda (+8%), Lexus (+10%), Suzuki (+30%), Ford (+33%) and Chevrolet (+54%). Further down, notice Citroen (+61%), Honda (+70%), GMC (+127%) and Jeep (+466%) all posting spectacular gains.

Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser more than doubles its volume (+111%) to brilliantly take the lead of the Jordanian charts whereas it only ranked 5th last year. The Hyundai Elantra (-16%) remains in 2nd place while the Kia Frontier (+26%) gains three spots to #3. All other nameplates inside the Top 10 lose market share due to greater-than-market drops bar the Kia Sorento (-27%), Sportage (-18%) and Isuzu D-Max (+480%). Leader in 2015, the Hyundai Accent falls 83% to #11 this year. Notice also the Toyota Prius C up to #17, the Hyundai Creta up to #19 and the Ford Mondeo up to #31.

The Jordanian new light vehicle market loses over 10,000 units (28%) year-on-year over the first seven months of 2016 to just 25.427 sales. This decline has one culprit: the imploding of the Hyundai-Kia tandem, losing a total 10.183 units year-over-year. From 37.4% share and a comfortable leadership a year ago, Hyundai drips 54% to 6.110 sales and 24% share this year while sister brand Kia is down 40% from 20.5% to 17.3% share. Mitsubishi is also hit at -59%, going from 11.3% share to 6.5% but remaining at #4. The big beneficiary of this momentous shift is Toyota, up 14% to see its Jordanian market share take off from 18.5% to 29.6%. Nissan (-16%) stays at #5 but Isuzu leaps 15 spots to #6, ahead of Lexus (+34%), Suzuki (+107%), Mazda (+28%) and Ford (+19%). Notice also Chevrolet (+33%), Honda (+36%), Citroen (+179%) and Jeep (+1856%) in great shape.

Hyundai Creta Jordan April 2016. Picture courtesy wheels.aeThe Creta is one of the only nameplates putting a smile on Hyundai Jordan’s face.

Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser cements its newfound leadership in Jordan through sales up a stunning 80% on the same period last year to 2.918 for a 11.5% market share. It is followed by its pickup counterpart, up an even more impressive 196% to 2.555 units and a round 10% share. The Hyundai Elantra plunges 28% to 7.7% share above the Kia Frontier (+9%), while the Hyundai Tucson (-55%), Accent (-76%) and Mitsubishi Lancer EX (-72%) all implode. Outside the Top 10, notice the Nissan Patrol shooting up 7 spots to #11, the Isuzu D-Max back among Jordan’s best-sellers at #12 while the big novelty for 2016 is the Hyundai Creta landing directly at a very robust 15th place with 2% of the market. The Suzuki Alto (#32), Ford Mondeo (#40) and BMW X5 (#47) also post spectacular gains.
