Hyundai has had a stellar September, selling a mighty 6,247 cars – up 17 per cent in a market that’s down two per cent.
Hyundai sold more cars than Skoda, Mitsubishi and Kia in September; Hyundai’s performance in September has given it a 1.45 per cent market share for the month.
If that wasn’t enough, Hyundai’s year-to-date sales (at 29,824 vehicles) has given the company a 1.43 per cent market share, up 16 per cent on last year.
The Hyundai Coupe, with 3,975 sales up to September, is now Britain’s fourth highest selling coupe, and for the second month running has outsold the Toyota Celica.
The Getz has sold 12,292 examples (giving it a two per cent share in the supermini segment), while the Matrix mini-MPV has also fared well at 3,178 sales year to date, ahead of the Kia Carens and Chrysler PT Cruiser.
The Terracan has also proved to be a success story for Hyundai, with 1,238 units sold this year – running neck and neck with the Nissan Terrano II.
