The Omani new vehicle market is down 11% year-on-year over the first four months of 2017 to 47.259 registrations. This market has traditionally been overwhelmingly dominated by Toyota, but the star manufacturer sees its share thaw a little more each year, this time to 46.9% due to a decline double that of the market at -22%. Reversely, Nissan more than doubles its sales year-on-year at +111% to take off to 22.3% market share vs. 12.3% over FY2016 and 9.5% a year ago. Hyundai crumbles down 52% but sister brand Kia surges 70%, with Jeep also getting noticed with a 97% gain in 7th place and Honda up 27% to #10. Lexus (-41%), Isuzu (-35%) and Mitsubishi (-23%) struggle.

In the models ranking, strikingly the Top 15 best-sellers are either Toyota or Nissan. The Toyota Hilux stays on top with 8.9% share (9.6% in FY2016) but is getting caught up fast by the Nissan Patrol, leaping from #5 in FY2016 directly to 2nd place and just 173 sales below. The rest of the Top 5 is entirely Toyota with the Prado, Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser Pickup. The Nissan Juke is up 10 spots on its FY16 ranking to #6, the Nissan Sunny up 18 to #7, the X-Trail up 13 to #8 and the Sentra up 18 to #11.
