New light vehicle sales in Turkey are down 6.4% year-on-year in April to 71.126, pulling the YTD volume back into negative territory at -1.1% to 229.556 units. Brand leader Renault defies the surrounding depleted environment with a stellar 13% year-on-year gain to 15.7% share, one percentage point above its YTD level of 14.7%. Volkswagen (-14%), Fiat (-16%) and Ford (-20%) follow but all drops faster than the market with double-digit declines. Toyota (+19%) posts the largest gain in the Top 10 with Peugeot (+1%) also in positive, but just. Further down, Mitsubishi (+157%), Porsche (+100%), Volvo (+86%), Jeep (+60%), DS (+54%), Mini (+51%), BMW (+45%), Mazda (+34%), Subaru (+28%), Suzuki (+23%) and Maserati (+20%) all impress with spectacular gains whereas Smart (-79%), Citroen (-59%), Jaguar (-50%), Ssangyong (-33%) and Land Rover (-26%) fall apart.

…and the Megane at #2. YTD, the order is reversed.

Model-wise, Renault justifies its runaway brand leadership by posting its second 1-2 in the past three months: the Clio (+33%) is the best-seller above the Megane (+16%) but the order is reversed YTD. The Fiat Egea (-17%) falls two spots on March to #3 ahead of the VW Passat (+30%) and Ford Transit (+5%). The Toyota Corolla (+63%) manages the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 25, followed by the Hyundai Accent Blue (+50%), Peugeot 3008 (+44%), VW Transporter (+36%), Opel Corsa (+35%), Nissan Qashqai (+34%) and VW Golf (+24%). Below, notice the Mitsubishi L200 (+216%), Audi A6 (+197%), Ford Kuga (+137%) and Toyota Hilux (+114%). The Turkish market isn’t very welcoming of new nameplates this year with the Skoda Karoq topping recent launches (<12 months) at a low #61 (+20) above the Opel Grandland X at #77 (-16), the Hyundai Kona landing directly at #85 and the Mercedes X-Class at #90 (-19).

The Turkish new light vehicle market is down 2.8% in 2017 to 956.194 but remains at very high levels, the third highest annual volume in history below those reached in 2016 (983.720) and 2015 (968.017). Renault is up 7% to 13.6% share, reclaiming the #1 brands ranking it last held in 2012, while Fiat does even better at +13% to 12.6% of the market, up two spots to #2 overall. Leader for the past four consecutive years, Volkswagen drops a harsh 13% to #3 and 12.3% share, with Ford (+1%) down one rank to 11.6% and rounding up the Top 4. Hyundai (+1%) and Dacia (+2%) both overtake Toyota (-14%) and Opel (-19%) while Peugeot (+14%) delivers the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 10. Below, Bentley (+78%), Lexus (+58%) and Honda (+29%) shine whereas Kia (-21%), Isuzu (-22%), Seat (-22%), BMW (-28%), Jaguar (-30%), Smart (-45%), Alfa Romeo (-50%) and DS (70%) are all in great difficulty.

The new Sedan variant propels the Renault Megane up 175% to #2 overall.

In the models ranking, the locally-produced Fiat Egea repeats its 2016 win thanks to deliveries up 25% to a round 5% market share. The Renault Megane is the most impressive nameplate this year however, up 175% due to the success of the sedan version that replaces the discontinued Fluence and accounts for 90% of the nameplate’s sales in Turkey this year. The Renault Clio (+20%) is up two spots to make it two Renaults on the Turkish podium, while the Ford Courier drops two to #4. The VW Passat (+4%), Ford Transit (+2%) and Fiat Fiorino (+19%) all step up, overtaking a plunging Opel Astra (-16%). Notice also the Honda Civic (+63%), Peugeot 301 (+34%), Partner (+27%), 3008 (+167%), Toyota C-HR (+265%) and Ford Kuga (+442%) all posting spectacular gains. The Skoda Kodiaq is the best-selling newcomer but only manages a weak #91 ranking.

Turkish light vehicle sales suffer from a particularly high comparison base in November, down 17.5% year-on-year but up 19.2% on November 2015 to 100.859 units. Year-to-date sales are now down 2.6% to 819.954 including light commercials (196.889). Market leader Renault goes agains the grain with a 10% gain to 13.9% share, further cementing its YTD domination at 13.6% (+11%) vs. 12.3% (-13%) for Volkswagen, down another 10% in November to 12.8% share. Ford (+2%) and Fiat (-9%) follow closely. Only Peugeot, up a very robust 13%, is in positive in the Top 10, with Nissan (-6%), Hyundai (-11%), Dacia (-13%), Opel (-15%) and most strikingly Toyota (-49%) all in decline. Further down, only Mini (+1%), Iveco (+3%), Karsan (+8%), Maserati (+21%), Subaru (+30%), Volvo (+41%) and Lamborghini (+100%) manage an uplift, with Ssangyong (-45%), Seat (-46%), BMW (-48%), Porsche (-49%), Alfa Romeo (-51%), Kia (-54%), Mercedes (-55%), Infiniti (-58%), Citroen (-65%) and Jaguar (-72%) the hardest hit.

Model-wise, the Renault Megane triumphs, snapping the Turkish pole position for the first time since February thanks to deliveries up 44% to 5.1% share, 90% of its November sales coming from the sedan variant. As a reminder, before it was split into Megane hatch and Fluence, the Renault Megane topped the annual Turkish sales charts from 2004 to 2006. The Ford Courier is up 6% to hold the 2nd place overall vs. #4 YTD, outselling the YTD leader the Fiat Egea down 7% to 4.3% share in third place vs. 5% so far this year. The VW Passat (+20%), Fiat Fiorino (+29%) and Renault Symbol (+37%) are the other strong performing nameplates near the top. Below, the Peugeot 301 (+109%), Hyundai Accent Blue (+49%), Peugeot Partner (+86%), Ford Kuga (+311%) and Ford Ranger (+61%) make themselves noticed while the Opel Grandland X lands at #88 and directly best performing recent launch above the Opel Crossland X (#89) and Skoda Kodiaq (#96).

* See the Top 42 All-brands and Top 235 All-models by clicking on the title *

Excellent month for new light vehicle sales in Turkey with October sales up 10.5% to 91.752 units, pulling the year-to-date score into almost completely stable at 719.095 vs. 719.499 over the same period a year ago. Brand leaders Renault (+31%) and Fiat (+21%) vastly outperform the market to hit 12.7% and 12% share respectively, whereas Volkswagen is in difficulty at -14% to 11.4%. Ford (+8%), Toyota (+10%), Hyundai (+9%), Opel (-6%) and Dacia (4%) also underperform but Nissan (+75%), Audi (+55%), Peugeot (+28%) and Mercedes (+17%) shine all inside the Top 12. Further down, notice Mitsubishi (+55%), Land Rover (+53%), Isuzu (+49%), Subaru (+47%) and Volvo (+46%) among the best performers.

The Renault Megane cements its 2nd place overall thanks to the sedan variant (92% of its sales).

Model-wise, the podium is identical to the YTD ranking with the Fiat Egea in the lead (+25%) ahead of two high performing Renaults: the Megane (+63%) and Clio (+59%). The VW Passat (+43%) means the entire Top 4 is vastly outperforming the market. The Ford Courier is stable in 5th lace above the Fiat Fiorino (+65%) while the Nissan Qashqai almost doubles its sales year-on-year (+95%) and is up 15 spots on September to #8 vs. #17 YTD. The Ford Focus (+35%), Audi A3 (+35%), Peugeot 301 (+55%) and Audi A4 (+68%) also impress inside the Top 30, as do the Peugeot 3008 (+83%), Nissan Micra (+123%) and Ford Kuga (+881%) in the Top 50. Now that the Toyota C-HR is over 1 year old, the Skoda Kodiaq (#88) dominates recent launches above the Audi Q2 (#99) and Opel Crossland X (#100), their relatively low rankings illustrating the lesser attraction towards SUVs the Turkish market is showing.

Even though August 2016 was handicapped by the recent political unrest, new light vehicle sales in Turkey only manage a meagre 1.4% uptick this month to 72.536 registrations including light commercials, keeping the year-to-date tally in negative territory at 555.991 units, down 2.3% on the same period in 2016. Renault surges 33% to hold onto the brands pole position with 13.7% share while in 2nd place Fiat also gallops ahead at +25% to 13.3% share.

Audi (+17%), Suzuki (+24%), Subaru (+27%), Mazda (+43%), Honda (+44%), Iveco (+56%) and Volvo (+67%) all post significant year-on-year gains further down the ranking.

The locally-produced Fiat Egea remains the best-selling vehicle in Turkey. 

The Top of the Turkish models ranking has fallen into a sort of routine, with the Fiat Egea (+61%) once again best-seller above the Renault Megane (+517%) solely ranked that high thanks to its sedan variant. The Ford Transit (+17%) gains four spots on July to #3, the Renault Symbol is up 10 to #4 but down 17% year-on-year as it topped the sales charts in August 2016, the Renault Clio surges 60% to #5, making it three Renaults in the Top 5, the Dacia Sandero is up 33% to #10, the Honda Civic up 215% to #17 thanks to the new generation, the Ford Kuga up 9-fold to #35 and the Peugeot 3008 up 10-fold to #38.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 240 All-models by clicking on the title *

As one year ago, political trouble had sunk the Turkish new car market down 30%, it logically rebounds back this month, up 41% to 82.297 registrations, yet the year-to-date tally remains in negative territory at 483.455 units, down 3% on the same period a year ago. These figures include light commercials. Market leader Renault surges 86% to 14.1% share and Fiat is up 81% to 13.1%, distancing Ford up 53% to 11.8%. In contrast, Volkswagen only manages a meagre 3% improvement to 11.4% share. Toyota (+52%), Dacia (+53%), Mercedes (+64%) and Nissan (+101%) all frankly beat the market among the 11 best-selling brands. Further down, Honda (+82%), Suzuki (+91%), Volvo (+112%) and Jeep (+100%) are all either doubling or close to doubling their sales year-on-year.

The Renault Megane returns to #2 overall thanks to the sedan variant. 

Model-wise, the two best-selling nameplates YTD reclaim their position this month: the Fiat Egea remains the most popular vehicle in the country, even improving by 108% year-on-year to 5.6% share, while the Renault Megane continues to be boosted (7-fold!) by the new sedan version to 5% market share. The Ford Courier (+50%), Toyota Corolla (+41%) and Opel Astra (+28%) round up the Top 5. Stunning 189% improvement for the Renault Clio, with the Fiat Fiorino (+90%), Dacia Sandero (+98%), Nissan Qashqai (+117%) and Honda Civic (+239%) also sporting extravagant gains. The Toyota C-HR (#35) is once again and by far the most popular newcomer, followed by the Skoda Kodiaq (#78), Seat Ateca (#90), Opel Crossland X (#95) and Audi Q2 (#100).
