The Omani new car market drops 16% year-on-year over the first 10 months of 2018 to 103.102 units, a decline reduced to -14% when taking into account the same set of manufacturers which in effect means removing the BMW and VW Groups from 2017 figures as these have stopped reporting sales in the region. Toyota (-14%) matches the market to maintain its share at a gargantuan 49%, followed by Nissan (-2%) improving to 23.2% meaning the two carmakers hold a suffocating 72.2% of the Omani market so far in 2018. In contrast, Hyundai (-37%) and Kia (-26%) lose significant share compared to 2017, as do Isuzu (-32%), Jeep (-23%) and Mazda (-20%) in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Honda and Mitsubishi are solid, both down just 7%. Further down, MG (+659%), Renault (+167%), Ram (+140%), Land Rover (+72%), Infiniti (+65%), Subaru (+31%), Lincoln (+14%) and Volvo (+11%) all post spectacular gains given the depressed context.

The Toyota Fortuner soars 34% to break into the Omani Top 5.

The Nissan Patrol (+42%) is the outstanding performer of the year, leaping up two spots on its FY 2017 ranking to snap the overall lead, overtaking its archenemy the Toyota Land Cruiser (-4%) in the process. Both upscale SUVs add up to a towering 22.6%. They are followed by the Toyota Hilux (-2%), Land Cruiser Pickup (-6%) and Fortuner (+34%) whereas the Toyota Prado (-64%), Camry (-17%) and Corolla (-16%) struggle in the remainder of the Top 10. The domination of Toyota and Nissan in Oman is such that the two carmakers monopolise the Top 14, with the Lexus LX (-4%) as an added bonus at #14. The Hyundai Elantra (-23%), Kia Sportage (+23%), Isuzu N-Series (-28%) and Hyundai Tucson (-52%) are the only “anomalies” in the Top 20. The best-seller recent launch (<12 month) and only one in the Top 50 is the Toyota Rush (#49)

New car sales in Oman drop a sharp 14% year-on-year over the First Half of 2018 to 63.110 registrations, a decline reduced to -12% when accounting for the same set of manufacturers (removing the VW and BMW Groups from 2017 data as they are not reporting in 2018). Brand leader Toyota manages to tighten its already iron grip on the Omani market thanks to a 11% skid that pushes its market up to 47.4% from 46% a year ago. The Top 5 carmakers are unchanged year-on-year, with Nissan (-1%) resisting the best in 2nd place followed by Hyundai and Kia both imploding 38% and Lexus down 18%. Mitsubishi (+14%) and Honda (+4%) post the only gains in the Top 10 just as Isuzu (-39%) and Mazda (-16%) fall faster than the market and Jeep (-7%) gains share and one spot to #8. Among smaller brands, SAIC MG (+2625%), Renault (+229%), Ram (+216%), Chrysler (+173%), Land Rover (+58%) and Subaru (+47%) make themselves noticed.

First official appearance of the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf in a sales charts – also in Kuwait.

Big surprise atop the Omani models ranking: the Nissan Patrol surges 36% year-on-year to firmly snap the lead at a staggering 13.1% share vs. 8.3% a year ago. The Patrol is bound to become the first non-Toyota to lead the annual Omani charts this decade, as the top spot had been shared by the Toyota Land Cruiser (-2%), Hilux (-11%) and Land Cruiser Pickup (-1%) so far – it is in fact in this order that the 3 nameplates complete the H1 2018 Top 4. The Toyota Previa (+266%), Fortuner (+73%) and Yaris (+43%) also shine whereas the Prado (-79%) and RAV4 (-47%) totally implode in a Top 15 exclusively composed of Toyota and Nissan nameplates! The Kia Sportage (+31%) is up 10 spots to become the best-selling non-Toyota or Nissan nameplate in Oman. The Toyota Rush (#80), launched in June, is the best-selling newcomer in a list that also includes the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf (#216), exclusive to the Middle-East and also appearing in Kuwait over the period.
