The Emirati new car market is up a fantastic 22% year-on-year in July to 29,265 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 201,122 units, up an equally impressive 16% on 2012. Toyota monopolises the podium once again this month, but illustrating how tight the race to #1 is so far this year, the models order has completely changed compared to June: in run-out mode here too, the Corolla takes the lead like in Saudi Arabia thanks to 1,736 sales and 5.9%, gaining one spot in the year-to-date ranking in the process to #2. The Land Cruiser is up one rank on June to #2 at 1,609 units and 5.5% and also up one year-to-date to #3, while the Camry rounds up the podium in July but remains #5 year-to-date.
The Toyota Prado is still for now the most popular model in the country so far in 2013 thanks to 10,673 sales and 5.3%, but it only ranks 4th in July and is now only 156 units above the Corolla… Leader in June, the Hilux is down to #5 this month and loses 2 ranks year-to-date to #4. As a reminder let’s note the Corolla was #1 in 2011 and the Hilux dominated in 2012, and it would be a first if the Prado leads the way in the Full Year. Let’s also salute the performances of the Mitsubishi Lancer EX up to #9 vs. #34 year-to-date, the Lexus LX up to #14 vs. #20 and Toyota RAV4 up to #30 vs. #44.
