How has the structure of the Russian car market by body type changed for 10 years?

Jun 11, 2020

Experts of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" studied the market of new cars for the last 10 years (since 2010) and found out what type of body was popular among Russians then and what their preferences are now.


So, in 2010 the largest market share was occupied by sedans - they had 40% of all purchased cars in the country. Almost every third (32%) car was a station wagon (including SUV), and every fourth (25%) - was a hatchback. At the same time, only 2% of the Russian market accounted for liftbacks, and cars in other bodies (pickups, convertibles, coupes) owned even less (a total of 1%).

By 2020, consumer preferences have clearly shifted towards vehicles with the wagon body type, which, we recall, also include crossovers and SUVs. The share of such vehicles now accounts for more than a half of the market - 54%. The share of sedans fell to 28%, while for hatchbacks it fell more than twice - to 11%. But liftbacks, on the contrary, managed to increase it threefold during this period - up to 6%. Cars in other body types still occupy 1% in our market.
