Mercedes-Benz – “The Best or Nothing”
In recent years, Mercedes-Benz has continued to maintain its position as a leading premium brand in Israel, while increasing its focus on quality and touching customer experiences, and retaining existing customers, along with growth in new market segments including young people, Chief Executive Officers, and the female audience. Its growth is based on a range of more than 30 models noted for advanced technology systems, state-of-the-art safety systems and impeccable design. During 2019, Colmobil sold 3,115 Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
In addition, Mercedes continues to be Israel’s leading brand in the commercial vehicle segment (trucks, vans, buses, taxis).

With a market share of 14.4%, Hyundai continues to solidify its position, inter alia, with the launch of the new “Hyundai I10”, the “Hyundai Venue” with advanced safety systems, and a wide range of the Israeli consumer’s favorite Hyundai models such as “Tucson,” “Santa Fe,” and of course Israel’s leading vehicle in Israel – the “Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.”
