Australia September 2010
The Australian market continues its good year: +9% in September at 85,051 units and +15% over the first 9 months (780,671 sales).
Once threatened by the Toyota Corolla when the new model came out a couple of years ago, the Holden Commodore now has quite a comfortable lead in the models ranking with 34,620 units sold in 9 months and a 4.4% market share. However, in spite of a great month at 4.7% in September the Commodore is only 160 sales ahead of the #2, the Mazda3, which has managed an amazing month with 3,878 units sold and a 4.6% market share.
In fact, pretty much all Mazda models have posted incredible scores this month: the Mazda2 is 10th with 2% (vs. 18th in 2010 at 1.4%) and the Mazda CX-7 breaks into the Top20 for the very first time with 1,076 units sold and 1.3% of the market (it is 31st at 1% in 2010).
