The Japanese automaker sold 467 Camry’s in Korea during April, leading its competitor, the Ford Taurus by a mere 11 cars. Next in line was the Mercedes-Benz E300, with a 200 car gap between it and the Ford Taurus, a quite dramatic gap most likely due to its price tag and car insurance quotes that go along with it.
Overall, the import industry in South Korea seems to be expanding in recent months. While in March, only 7,102 vehicles were purchased, in April, sales were up to approximately 7,200. That’s about a 1.5 percent increase in just one month, which is quite a jump, especially in a struggling economy. With the Toyota scare slowly being muffled by other issues in the auto industry, the Camry could quite possibly hold its position as the number one imported vehicle in South Korea.
