* See the Top 20 best-selling models by clicking on the title! *
While 2010 and 2011 were both record years for new car sales in Indonesia, 2012 goes even further with registrations up a very solid 11% over the first 3 months of the year to 250,533 units, meaning the million car sales at year-end is a possibility for the very first time in the history of automobile in Indonesia! For the first time on Best Selling Cars Blog I can share with you a Top 20 models ranking!
As it has been the case for the last 5 years, the Toyota Avanza is by far the best-selling model in the country and thanks to its late 2011 facelift it improves its market share from 18.2% in 2011 to 19.2% this year thanks to a massive 47,998 sales in 3 months. Also refreshed at the end of last year, the Toyota Innova is up to 2nd place with 19,405 units and 7.7% share vs. 6.1% in 2011. The Avanza's twin, the Daihatsu Xenia, is down to #3 but with 18,100 sales and 7.2% it means the Avanza/Xenia format holds a mammoth 26.4% of the Indonesian market!
With medium/heavy commercial vehicles now included in the ranking, the Mitsubishi Canter excels at #4 with 15,953 sales followed by the Suzuki Carry Pick-up at 9,634 units. Other great performers include the Toyota Rush at #6 with 3.6%, the Nissan Grand Livina at #7 with 3.5%. The Nissan Juke is the main newcomer in the Top 20 at #15 with 4,303 sales and 1.7%. Notice also both versions of the Daihatsu Gran Max adding up to 9,569 sales.
