Korea. Best selling cars ranking in 2020

korea best selling cars

Korea best selling cars ranking in 2020 dominated again by the Hyundai Grandeur ahead of the Hyundai Porter. Stunning performance scored by the Kia K5, reaching the podium with 5.9% of market share. Kia Seltos entered the top 10 for the first time ever.

In a market where the top two brands, Hyundai and Kia, control together the 67% of the share, the top 10 best-selling models ranking is entirely held by the two Koreans.

However, the leadership is not stable and frequently a new model takes the lead, some time just for a single year. Actually the best-seller in 2020 is the Hyundai Grandeur, still on top, with 8.0% of share.

In second place, again behind the leader, the Hyundai Porter with market share at 7.3%, ahead of the new rising star the Kia K5 with 5.9%.

In fourth position the Hyundai Sonata – up 2 spots from the previous year – with 5.4% followed by the Kia Bongo with 3.8% and the Hyundai Palisade with 3.7%.

In seventh place the Kia K7 with 3.2%, ahead of the Kia Morning, which gains the eighth position, at 3.1%.

The Kia Seltos, whose debut was the most surprising novelty of the 2019 Los Angeles Motor Show, enters the top 10 for the first time, with 3.0% share. The Hyundai Santa Fe, after approaching the podium, falls down at 2.9%.
