A combination of a weakening peso and the likelihood of further interest rate rises in H116 both pose significant challenges to Colombia's new vehicle sales market in 2016. We are targeting a 3% increase in sales, with commercial vehicles set to outperform passenger cars.

Key Views
- Vehicle sales have fallen sharply over 2015, against the backdrop of a slowdown caused by a drop in the global oil price.

- In this weak environment, heavy trucks have proved the outperformers, falling by only 1.3%, compared to a 10.5% fall across the market as a whole.

- We expect the outperformance by commercial vehicles over passenger cars to continue over 2016-2017,
although passenger cars will continue to represent the lion's share of all vehicles sold in Colombia.

- Colombia is becoming increasingly attractive as a location for automakers, with Chinese carmaker Beiqi Foton Motor and Indian motorcycle maker Hero MotoCorp both opening new plants over 2015.
