ISTANBUL (Reuters) -- Turkish auto sales rose 10 percent year-on-year in 2013 to 853,378 vehicles, the Automotive Distributors' Association (ODD) said today.

Passenger car sales rose 20 percent to 664,655 vehicles last year, the association added.

The ODD is forecasting sales of 800,000 to 860,000 vehicles this year, but has warned that last week's tax hike on passenger cars and recent banking measures aimed at curbing Turkey's growing current account deficit could dent sales.
