Egypt car sales rose 5% in September 2012. Hyundai dropped.

The car market in Egypt posted a moderate year-on-year increase in September, posting 18.420 sales, up 5.2%. Year-to-date sales were 141.605, up 10.1%, a slow recovery after the 2012 29% drop. Penalized by short supply, the market leader Hyundai struggled losing the monthly leadership in favor of rival Chevrolet .
