According to a report by The Korea Herald, Kia outsold its larger corporate sibling Hyundai for the first time in its domestic market last year.

In terms of numbers, Kia sold 475,107 passengers cars in 2016 compared to Hyundai’s 418,303 units. Hyundai’s figures are also a far cry from its 2015 results, where it shifted 529,135 units during that period.

“We see this to be a temporary phenomenon. What’s more alarming for us is the declining market share of both Hyundai and Kia in the local market,” a Hyundai official told the local press.

As for the Q1 2017 period, Kia’s sales in Korea amounted to 104,954 units, which is only marginally ahead of Hyundai with 101,644 units. However, Hyundai’s recently facelifted Sonata and upcoming Kona could help the company regain its lead in its domestic market, analysts say.
