The Renault Kaptur gets his best position
Although they have become lower, the sales of cars in Russia seem to have found their bottom after a year of heavy falls. In December-have been registered 145.668 cars, which a implies a decrease in only the 0.9% compared with the same month of the previous year. The accumulated data of 2016, which reflect a total of 1.425.791 units (-11,0%).
As already successfully in November, the Lada Granta repeats at the top of the standings in the last month of the year, although its sales have fallen by a strong 24% in comparison with December of 2015. The Hyundai Solaris is awarded the second place and the Kia Rio is left with the third step.
The demand of the Granta may have been offended by the good result of the Lada Vesta (4th), which still stands near the stalls of a podium finish, despite the fact that both models do not compete among themselves because there is a price difference substantial between the two. The Vesta has been found in the fourth position his wall, because he has signed in 8 of the last 10 months -only failed in may and September – but has never reached the podium.
The Lada Vesta is still resisting the Top 3
The protagonist of the month has been the Renault Kaptur (8th) -not to be confused with the Capture-, which gets for the first time in the Top 10 since it went on the market last summer. The Kaptur has been very near the large star in its segment, the successful Hyundai Crete (5th).
Among the manufacturers is striking that the three most widely sold brands have improved their numbers of enrolments in a stage of crisis as remarkable as that of the Russian market. Lada (+18%), Hyundai (+12%) and Renault (+15%) do not seem to understand the crisis. In fact, the good performance of the French brand has enabled him to overcome to Kia (-13%) in the table.
