The consecutive growth was led by strong sales of new SUV models, the all-new Santa Fe and Kona.

Sales in Korea decreased by 3.8 percent compared with the same period of last year, recording 59,494 units sold. Sales was affected by reduced working days including Korea’s Local Election Day in June. The all-new Santa Fe became the best-selling model in Korea for the fourth consecutive month.
