Japanese automobiles were Korea’s imported
cars of choice last month. The Korea Automobile Importers & Distributors
Association says Japanese auto brands… like Lexus, Honda and Mazda… accounted for 22-and-a-half
percent of all imported car sales in July. This means their market share has more than
doubled since 2014,… when German automakers ruled the roost. Lexus and Toyota were the best-selling Japanese
brands last month. While Mercedes Benz and BMW maintained steady
sales at 54-hundred and -31-hundred respectively,… their popularity has dropped significantly…
with their market share falling seven percentage-points on-year.
