Thanks to the sales increase, Hyundai’s market share also increased to 3.4%.

Hyundai’s record monthly sales were due to the i10 and i20 mini-cars, moving 11,363 and 10,297 units respectively. The Tucson iX had a great month too, selling 10,764 of the model. On the other side, Kia’s best selling model was the Sportage SUV with 12,596 units sold.
