Omani new car sales are up a shy 1% year-on-year in January to 17,344 registrations, and Toyota brilliantly monopolises the Top 6 best-sellers this month (vs. Top 4 over the Full Year 2013). The Hilux continues to dominate the sales charts in Oman thanks to 2,175 sales and 12.5%, the Land Cruiser (#2 at 10.6%) and Land Cruiser PU/HT (#4 at 9.8%) exchange positions vs. their 2013 ranking while the Prado remains third at 10.3% share. The Hiace and Corolla are both up one spot to #5 and 3.7% and #6 and 3.6% respectively. Note all leading Toyotas deliver January market shares above their FY2013 levels!
The best-selling non-Toyota is the Nissan Patrol at a solid 7th place with 3.5% share vs. 2.3% in 2013. Other great performers this month in Oman include the Hyundai Santa Fe up 7 spots on its 2013 ranking to #11, the Toyota Yaris up 13 to #15 thanks to the new generation, the Mazda6 up 15 to #29, the Suzuki Jimny up a massive 89 spots to #35, the Mitsubishi Outlander up 65 to #43 and the Lexus IS up 68 to #48.
