Car Sales Lebanon: 2016


An 8% drop in sales was the first since 2011 and the top 4 club were all down by some margin. The chasing bunch fared much better, closing the large gap between them. Toyota ended its charmed run and fell back to third. Poorer economic conditions were the reason. There was also a shift toward smaller vehicles, Suzuki seemingly benefiting from that the past two years. Premium marques felt the swing away from them.

The list below is colour coded according to regions the brand is associated with. Yellow is Asia, salmon Japan. North America is dark blue and Europe light blue.
