The Saudi new car market is up a very healthy 19% year-on-year in July to 62,906 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 347,155 units, up 15% on 2011. Head and bonnet above the rest of the pack, the Toyota Hilux grabs a very round 10% market share thanks to 6,275 sales, adding up to 33,067 and 9.5% year-to-date. It is followed on the podium by the Toyota Corolla at 4,427 units and a strong 7% share and the Hyundai Accent with 3,202 sales and 5.1%.

GMC Yukon XL

In fact the Top 6 best-sellers are unchanged vs. June and the 2012 year-to-date ranking: the Toyota Camry ranks 4th at 4.7%, ahead of the Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Yaris both at 4.2% while the Toyota Land Cruiser is up 2 spots to #7. Another amazing month for the Ford Expedition, improving further to 2,063 sales and 3.3% share, or triple its June 2011 score! The Chevrolet Tahoe is up one rank to #9 .

GMC Acadia

Another American SUV gets noticed in Saudi Arabia this month: the GMC Yukon is stable at a very respectable 11th place with 1,735 units and 2.8% vs. 2.1% year-to-date. If we add the score of the Yukon XL at #17 with 989 units, total Yukon sales stand at 2,724 and 4.4% share, equivalent to an outstanding 5th place overall...

    The Ford Crown Victoria has always been a preferred choice in the Saudi market and it is no longer in production. Therefore, it seems that customers in the region now shifted to the Ford Expedition (and also to the GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe). Although the Ford Taurus is another option, Saudi buyers prefer large cars.

    I have been in Saudi Arabia several times and the large numbers of Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis on Saudi streets are really amazing.
