Thanks to myk we have access to a Filipino monthly models ranking for the first time on BSCB! In June the new car market in the Philippines is up a very healthy 20% year-on-year to 16,609 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 88,673 units, up 8% on 2011.  No surprises in pole position: the Toyota Vios stays on top with 1,438 sales and 7,763 year-to-date for a 8.8% share. The Mitsubishi Montero delivers an excellent month in June and manages to climb into 2nd place with 1,201 units, above the Toyota Innova at 1,122. It stays #3 year-to-date though at 6.9% vs. 7.9%.

Hyundai Eon with some colourful locals

Below the Toyota Fortuner at 973 units, the Hyundai Accent impresses: up to #5 with 607 sales vs. #8 year-to-date. The other great performers this month are either Korean or models that had been handicapped by the Thai floods and are now catching on: the Toyota Hilux is up to #9 (vs. #12 year-to-date), the Hyundai Grand Starex is up to #11 (vs. #21), the Kia Rio at #12 (vs. #20), the Honda CR-V up to #19 (vs. #25) and the Toyota Camry is up to #22 (vs. #37).

Clearly the locals are having heaps of fun with the Eon!

Three newcomers are starting to make their mark in the Philippines: the most successful of them so far is the Hyundai Eon imported from India, up to a brilliant 24th place with 114 sales in June vs. #59 year-to-date. The Mazda CX-5 is up to #35 with 68 units this month (vs. #63) and the Subaru XV is up to #38 with 58 sales vs. #57 in the 2012 year-to-date ranking.

    The blending of colors of the locals and the Eon looks great… :)

    The All-New Ford Focus with new features like active park assist, active stop, and antiblindspot features should help improve its ranking this year. View this short test drive video – it’s cool http://fapa.launchpad6.com/video368

    @Walter Ty

    I haven’t seen the i10 on my source.. That’s why it is not included.

    Where’s the Hyundai i10? It’s not on the list, surprisingly, considering the number of units running on Manila’s roads.

    13,847 – June 2011 sales
    16,609 – June 2012 sales
