Dossier, the 50 best selling models in Colombia in the first half

With industry experts are hoping for a great 2017, finally the results of registrations of new vehicles in Colombia are not fulfilling ocn high expectations.

Con the first semester is now closed, the colombian market has had a behavior rather unstable, and is finished with a fall of 3.2% in comparison with the same period of the previous year to stand at a total volume of 113.101 units delivered to new customers.

even Though dealers are not yet alarmed, do have some concerns about how will be the behavior of the users in the second half of the year. The idea of achieving over 230,000 units sold in 2017 is gradually dissipating, and further reducing volume compared to 2016 could end up surpassing it slightly to 200,000 units.

models the range Sandero/Stepway remains the domain of the market, achieving very good figures and surpassing the Chevrolet Spark and Sail, other big super-sales in this market. The SUV of choice in Colombia is the Duster although the figure has a “trick” by adding the data of the Oroch, something that allows you to take advantage of the Chevrolet Tracker.

As you can see in the ranking, there is no high-end model among the 50 most defendants. The most complained against has been the BMW X1 (270 units), followed by the Mercedes Class C (250), BMW X3 (218), Mercedes GLC (208) and Mercedes CLA (194).

Among the latest releases there are that point out the good performance of models such as the Nissan Kicks, the Renault Capture, his older brother Renault Koleos, or the good performance of the south Korean Hyundai and Kia with the Tucson and Sportage respectively. Among the curiosities, I must say that both Citroën and Peugeot are improving their sales, though still far from the first positions.
