Dynamics of the Russian car market by months: the growth is in July!


On the secondary market, Hyundai Solaris is more popular than LADA Granta


As previously reported "AUTOSTAT", in January - February 2016 Hyundai Solaris by sales bypassed LADA Granta, by becoming the best-selling car in Russia. Analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" conducted a similar study of the market of cars with mileage. According to the survey, Hyundai Solaris is also ahead of LADA Granta.

So, for two months of this year the volume of the secondary market of Korean bestseller was 7104 units, which is more by 78.4% compared to the same period of a year ago. During the same period AvtoVAZ’s model was sold in amount of 7,060 used cars, by showing an increase of 76.8%. The same trend was in 2015, when in the secondary market Hyundai Solaris was more popular than LADA Granta (40588 and 39317 units, respectively).

As the deputy chief of the analytics department of agency "AUTOSTAT", Dmitry Yarygin, said, the higher popularity of second-hand "Solaris" in comparison with the same "Granta" is due to several factors. First of all, Hyundai Solaris appeared earlier in the primary market - at the beginning of 2011, while LADA Granta is sold only since the end of 2011. This fact allowed the "Korean" to enter faster the market of cars with mileage. In addition, due to a sharp rise in prices, many potential buyers of new cars were forced to turn their attention to the secondary market, where during this time it was formed a large number of proposals of second-hand cars, including also Hyundai Solaris.

Recall also that Hyundai Solaris is the most popular model, which is used as a taxi. These vehicles are often sold after 2 - 3 years from the start of operation, and many cars are on sale after a year of work in the taxi pool. This fact, also, may contribute an earlier exit of Hyundai Solaris in the secondary market.
