South Korea October 2010: Avante at 15%, Sportage up to #7

Kia Sportage

In October, Hyundai gets back to its dominating position with a 1-2-3: the Avante (Elantra) is still riding on the novelty effect wave with close to 20,000 registrations and 15% of the market, the Sonata loses 2 percentage points but stays #2 and the Porter is #3 at 6.8% of the market.

The Kia K5 (Optima) continues to drop and is now 5th at 5.6%, behind the Morning (Picanto). It will be interesting to see where the K5 stabilises after its brilliant start.

Excellent performance of the Kia Sportage: it is now 7th with a solid 4% market share, up from 3.1% last month. The Daewoo Alpheon continues to grow in 25th (1%), and the Hyundai Verna (Accent) new generation is making its first appearance, however well outside the Top 30 with 464 sales.
