Cyprus May 2020: Toyota RAV4 repeats at #1 in best performing market in Europe (-29.5%)

The Toyota RAV4 is the best-selling vehicle in Cyprus again.

According to data shared with us by our local partners SEMO Cyprus and INNOSOFT, the Cyprus new car market rallies back to just -29.5% year-on-year in May and 790 registrations. This is a drastic improvement on the -77.9% of April and it makes Cyprus the best performing market in Europe in May. The year-to-date tally is now down -26.4% to 3.944. This month the Toyota RAV4 (+37.1%) surges to repeat as the best-selling vehicle in the country, eclipsing the Kia Sportage (+38.2%) for just one unit while the Hyundai Kona (+171.4%) is up 10 spots on April to complete an extremely dynamic podium. The Toyota Yaris (stable) and C-HR (-49.2%) round out the Top 5, which means the Japanese carmaker now monopolises the YTD podium with the C-HR at #1, the Yaris at #2 and the RAV4 equal #3 with the Hyundai Tucson… The VW T-Cross (+420%), Jeep Renegade (+228.6%) and Kia Stonic (+4.2%) also post year-on-year gains in the remainder of a May Top 10 that has no less than 9 SUVs. The Seat Arona breaks into the YTD Top 30.
