Shock, horror: new car sales in Oman are actually down 4% year-on-year in July to 19,919 registrations, a very rare feat in the region. The year-to-date total however is up 9% on 2012 to 126,442 units. No surprises on top: the Toyota Hilux is leader once again thanks to 2,347 sales and 11.8% share, slightly below its year-to-date level of 12.5%. The Toyota Prado gains one spot on June to land in 2nd place at 1,654 units and 8.3% vs. 7.9%, benefitting from a particularly weak month for both the Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up down to 6.8% vs. 9.4% year-to-date and the Toyota Land Cruiser down to 5.6% vs. 7.9%.
Further down, the Hyundai Santa Fe continues to progress thanks to the new model, up 2 spots on June to #13 with 354 sales and 1.8% vs. #16 and 1.3% year-to-date, the Nissan Pathfinder is stable at #17 vs. #28 year-to-date, the Nissan X-Terra is up 3 ranks to #24 vs. #37 year-to-date and the Chevrolet Tahoe up 23 to #29 vs. #51 year-to-date.
