Geely (+43.4%) inside Top 10, Toyota Camry leads, market down -7% – Best Selling Cars BlogThe Toyota Camry is the best-selling vehicle in Saudi Arabia so far in 2022.

New light vehicle sales in Saudi Arabia skid down -7% year-on-year over the first 9 months of 2022 to 394,912 units. Toyota (+3%) swims upstream to reach 31.2% share vs. 28.1% a year ago and increase the gap with its followers. Indeed Hyundai (-27.3%) is in freefall and sees its share go down from 17.2% over the first 9 months of 2021 to 13.5% now. Nissan (-10.4%) also falls faster than the market to 6.4%, meaning the podium remains unchanged on a year ago and the Full Year 2021 ranking. At #4, Isuzu (+14.1%) overtakes Changan (+4.1%) down one spot to #5, Kia (-2.2%) still at #6 and Mazda (-22.6%) down three spots to #8. MG (+1.7%) advances one spot to #7 as does Chevrolet (-4.9%) to #10. Geely (+43.4%) completely ignores the downward trend and lodges the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 15 to break into the Top 10 at #10. We now have Audi, Bentley and Volkswagen in the charts.

Model-wise, the Toyota Camry (-22.9%) remains the overall best-seller but suffers a drastic year-on-year loss. It is now teased by the Toyota Hilux (+29.1%) up three spots on its FY2021 ranking to #2. The Toyota Yaris (-7.1%) matches the market to stay in third place, distancing the Hyundai Elantra (-23.8%) down two to #4 and the Hyundai Accent (-35.6%) down one to #5. The Toyota RAV4 (+43.9%) posts a splendid gain to break into the Top 10 at #10 vs. #21 over the FY2021. The Toyota Fortuner (+22.7%) is also in great shape at #9 while the Isuzu TF (aka D-Max) is also up at +10.9% to #6. Below, the Suzuki Swift Dzire (+104.5%), Changan Alsvin (+32.7%) and Geely Coolray (+28.9%) stand out. The Geely Emgrand (#39) is the best-selling recent launch above the Chevrolet Groove (#41), MG GT (#42) and Toyota Raize (#55).
