Adding an estimated 60.000 grey imports shows a relatively stable market otherwise.
Lada remains by far the market leader over the full year at 25.2% and despite sales down 46%, but fell well below 20% towards the end of the year when it was under intense pressure from UZ-Daewoo and Renault.
Renault (-39%) also improves its market share significantly from 6.9% to 10.8%.
On the opposite, Hyundai and Kia, both down 76% lose 5 and 6 percentage points of market share respectively.
Leader at end-February, the Toyota Camry slumps to #5 due to a poor 10th place in March.

Heavy truck manufacturer Kamaz ( 15%) is the only brand gaining ground in the Top 10.
In the models ranking, the Toyota Camry frankly outpaces all Ladas to take the lead of the charts thanks to 361 sales and 10.6% share, ahead of the Lada Granta (206) and the valiant Lada 4×4 (200).
Despite losing almost all its steam in the brands ranking, Lada manages to place the Priora in the models pole position so far in 2016 – a title it lost in 2015 to the Hyundai Accent – with 902 sales and 8.5% share (49% of Lada sales so far in Kazakhstan) and a whopping 15% share in March.
