The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is composed of the states bordering the Persian Gulf: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Almost 100,000 vehicles (96,767 exactly) were registered in the region in November, placing it below Canada and above Australia, Mexico and Spain. It's a demonstration of force from Toyota in the models ranking, with a 100% Toyota podium and 9 models in the Top 12...

Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Hilux, #1 in UAE, also leads the region this month with 5,981 sales and 6.2% market share. It is followed by the Toyota Land Cruiser, #1 in Oman, Qatar and Bahrain, at 5,113 units and 5.3%. The Toyota Corolla, #1 in Saudi Arabia, ranks 3rd with 5,082 sales and 5.2%, ahead of the Hyundai Accent at 4.1% and the Toyota Prado, #1 in Kuwait, at 4%.

Nissan Sunny

The Toyota Camry is #6, the Hyundai Elantra #7 and the Nissan Sunny #9. Notice the 14th position of the Ford Crown Victoria thanks to Top 10 scores in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, the Chevrolet Tahoe at #17 and the Toyota FJ Cruiser at #29.

    I would say, better as “manipulated” by volkswagen-Marketing.

    Why would it be “better” ? Toyota ain’t any better than Volkswagen.

    Hyundai and Kia seriously need a proper off-road vehicle and a pickup truck for GCC as well as South America and South East Asia. With 8 models in the top30, they are not far away from the 11 models from Toyota. Their passenger cars are performing well!

    Great information! I hope to see the numbers for the whole year 2011 and more models, such as European ones. Certainly it’s an interesting market.

    Very interesting that Mazda seems to be non-existant in the Middle East, as does Ford (with the exception of the Crown Vic). Hilux and Navara are popular, but Mitsubishi Triton and Ford Ranger nowhere to be seen? Also surprising is the lack of US pickups. For countries so rich in oil and with such cheap petrol prices, you’d think the Ford F-series would at least be somewhere in the top 30.

      Hi David,
      Indeed Mazda does very poorly in the region. You can see the Mitsubishi Triton (called L200 in the GCC) in a few rankings though…
      cheers
