It’s a very tough month for new light vehicle sales in Turkey with July volumes down a harsh 35.9% year-on-year to 52.734 units, pulling the year-to-date tally down 16% to 406.082 registrations. The Top 4 best-selling brands all fall faster than the market and lose share vs. July 2017: Renault (-39%) remains comfortably in the lead however with 13.5% share, distancing Fiat (-45%) at 11.1%, Ford (-40%) also at 11.1% and Volkswagen (-41%) at 10.5%. At #5, Peugeot spectacularly goes against the overall trend by posting a smashing 18% year-on-year uplift to 6.5% share vs. 4.8% YTD. In fact, the French carmaker is one of only four Top 20 brands to lodge a positive result for July alongside Honda (+36%) at #9, Volvo (+89%) at #19 and Mitsubishi (+10%) at #20. Skoda (-13%), Seat (-22%), Citroen (-23%) and Hyundai (-27%) also make themselves noticed by limiting their fall somewhat whereas BMW (-60%), Nissan (-58%) and Opel (-52%) all but disappear. Among smaller brands, Lexus (+67%), Mini (+11%), Subaru (+3%),

The Civic (+64%) pushes Honda sales up 36% year-on-year in July. 

Over in the models ranking, the Fiat Egea (-25%) scores its third win of the year after March and May and now threatens the Renault Megane (-41%) for the YTD leadership at 21.769 sales vs. 21.822. The Renault Clio (-10%) is down one spot on June to #2, the Toyota Corolla (-19%) is up 3 to #4 but it’s the Honda Civic (+64%) at #5, Peugeot 301 (+38%) at #9 and Peugeot 3008 (+140%) at #17 that post the best performances in the Top 20, justifying their respective brands’ score. Strikingly, there are no other gainers in the Top 35 with the Ford Kuga (+11%) at #36, Mitsubishi L200 (+5%) at #41, Mercedes A-Class (+45%) at #42, Kia Cerato (+21%) at #44 and Volvo S60 (+835%) at #49 the only other Top 50 nameplates in positive for July. The Skoda Karoq (#70), Mercedes X-Class (#75) and Hyundai Kona (#98) are the only all-new nameplates making it to the Top 100 of an atone market.
