An overall rise in vehicle sales in Australia’s hasn’t phased the Hilux which has once again taken the throne as our best selling vehicle
The Ranger was only slightly behind the Hilux, recording 4,254 and 4,402 sales in May respectively, with both leading a pack of steadfast sellers in Australia that includes the Toyota RAV4 midsize SUV which was hot on their heels with 4,014 sales.
Despite the 200 Series being well into its runout period and often sold with a huge markup, the Landcruiser retained its fourth-place spot at 3,399 sales.
Australia purchased 100,809 vehicles in May, which is naturally triumphant over last year’s dismal 59,894 May result under Covid-19 lockdown conditions, but it was also a healthy 8.9 per cent increase over the results seen in the same month in 2019.
Aside from the top-four, we saw some notable success from the Isuzu with the D-Max ute which recorded 3,058 sales and jumped from 10th to 5th place, as it battles production delays that if cleared, could see it sell even more models to ute-hungry Australians.
