Israel Full Year 2011: Toyota Corolla threatens Mazda3

Mazda3

* See the Top 80 best-selling models by clicking on the title! *

Thanks to Enrique from Spanish Autoblog, for the first time on Best Selling Cars Blog I can share with you a Top 80 models for Israel! The Israeli new car market reaches the record level of 225,949 registrations in 2011, up 5% year-on-year. Once ultra-dominant in the country, Mazda is no longer the best-selling brand in the country with Hyundai taking a definitive advantage at 33,060 units and 14.6% share vs. 21,145 and 9.4% for Mazda.

Toyota Corolla

For at least the 7th consecutive year, the Mazda3 is the best-selling model in Israel, with Australia the only other country in the world where it leads. However while in 2009 it commanded 12% of the market, this year it is down to 5.2% and 11,642 sales, only 221 units above the Toyota Corolla, #2 at 11,421 units and 5.1% share. The Hyundai i30 rounds up the podium with 8,901 sales and 3.9%, the first of 6 Hyundais in the Top 25!

Chevrolet Cruze

Compact cars are definitely the favourite car size in Israel with the Chevrolet Cruze at #4 with 6,909 units and the Ford Focus at #5 with 6,286 sales. The Hyundai i20 is the best-selling small car at #6 and 6,098 units, followed by the Mazda2 at #7 and the Suzuki Alto at #8. The Kia Rio and Renault Fluence close the Top 10.

Buick LaCrosse

Further down the ranking, notice the new Hyundai i25 (aka Accent) at #15, Mitsubishi Lancer at #16, Nissan Juke at #18 with 3,341 sales (vs. 1,851 for the Qashqai), Suzuki SX4 at #19 and Hyundai i35 (aka Elantra) at #20. Two US imports otherwise pretty discreet in the region rank within the Top 70: the Chevrolet Malibu at #55 and Buick LaCrosse (instead of the Opel Insignia) at #63.
