Cyprus Passenger Car Sales : Jan-Sep 2018


Sales here seem buoyant but I haven't got a clearer picture than that. What we can see is that Kia may become the top brand for the first time ever. Not too late for Toyota to come back, mind you. However, it hasn't been a good year for the bigger brands, with most suffering falls. Land Rover is doing well, entering into the top 10. That said, premium brands do well here.

Uruguay Passenger Car Sales : Jan-Sep 2018

A leafy street scene in Montevideo?

Sales are down here 22% in September and -17%  YTD. It seems to be due to a downturn in the economy. VW retained top spot but is under pressure from Renault and Fiat. Chevrolet dropped from 2nd to 4th after spending much of the 21st century as the biggest selling brand.
