Turkey Autos Market starts the 2016 down. New Fiat Aegea already in second place.

Turkey Autos Market

Turkey Autos Market starts the 2016 down following the impressive all time record scored last year. In January – February domestic demand declined 4.9%. The new Fiat Aegea produced at full capacity and already in second place.

Economic Outlook

The series of economic sanctions that Russia imposed against Turkey following the shooting down of a Russian fighter jet on 24 November came into force on 1 January. They affect a wide range of areas spanning from agricultural products, charter holidays to Turkey and include banning Turkish companies from signing new construction projects in Russia.

While the sanctions’ immediate effect on the economy has yet to be seen, Turkish officials reckon that they could cost the country as much as USD 9.0 billion a year. Moreover, on 29 January, Turkey denounced Russia for violating its airspace, adding to an already-entangled political situation.

In the economic field, while the economy showed surprising resilience in 2015, there are signs suggesting that growth has likely lost some steam at the outset of the year due to soaring inflation and rising geopolitical risks.

Market Outlook

As reported by the O.D.D., Otomotiv Distribütörleri Derneği (Car Distributors Association in Turkey), the domestic market started the year slow. Indeed, the phenomenal boom that pushed the Turkish market to hit in the 2015 the all time record sales ended in last September with cumulative sales in the last four month of the last year raising only 1%.

In January-February 2016 sales went down 4.9% with 85.538 units.

Volkswagen has confirmed the leadership with 80154 sales in the February (-14.9%) with 15.4% of market share, followed by Ford  with 6.940 units (-7.6%), Renault with 6.162 (+5..3%),  Fiat with 5.502 (-12.5%), Hyundai with 3.101 (+2.6%), Opel with 2.521 (+12.6%), Toyota with 2.501 (-9.1%) and Mercedes with 2.250 (+24.4%) reporting a really good start.

As in the Q4 2015, the best-selling model (in this case LCVs has not been considered) was the Renault Fluence with February sales at 2.124 (+90.8%) while the new Fiat Aegea jumped in second place with 1.866 units, ahead of the Volkswagen Polo with 1.830 (+3.6%), the Volkswagen Passat with 1.736 (-7.2%) and the Toyota Corolla, the leader last year, with 1.697 sales (-6.5%).
