Top 20 Models Korea : 2014 (plus imports)

The Sonata looks a bit like a Merc, and probably a similar quality

The top list is local models only, which makes no difference as imports wouldn't make the list anyway. Hyundai make up seven of the top thirteen models and eight of the top twenty. Kia make up eight of the top twenty, allowing four other models only outside the Hyundai Group.


1 Hyundai Sonata 108,014

2 Kia Morning 96,089

3 Hyundai Avante 93,895

4 Hyundai Grandeur 93,209

5 Hyundai Sante Fe 77,689

6 Chevrolet Spark 60,500

7 Kia K3 49,303

8 Kia K5 49,000

9 Kia Sportage 47,719

10 Hyundai Tucson 41,755

11 Kia Sorento R 38,126

12 Hyundai Genesis 36,711

13 Hyundai Gr Starex 32,873

14 Kia Carnival 32,397

15 Samsung SM5 27,248

16 Kia Sorento 24,154

17 Ssangyong Korando Sport 23,435

18 Hyundai Accent 23,209

19 Kia K7 22,457

20 Samsung SM3 20,614

The Tiguan is surprisingly the top import in Korea

I find the import list weird. It seems that every engine and trim variant is listed as a model. That would be fine if we got more than the top ten and could see the total sales of a model. Of the list we do have, nine of them are German model variants, including two BMW 520s. 


1 VW Tiguan 2l Tdi 8,106

2 BMW 520d 6,546

3 Mercedes E220 Cdi 5,921

4 VW Golf 2l Tdi 5,282

5 VW Passat 2l Tdi 4,577

6 Lexus ES300h 4,386

7 BMW 520d xDrive 3,982

8 Mercedes E250 Cdi 4Matic 3,771

9 BMW 320d 3,607

10 Audi A6 3.0 Tdi Quattro 3,459
