Reversely, Hyundai, BMW, Kia, Ford and Lexus are all a notch below and round up the Top 8.
Model-wise, after losing to the Toyota Hilux in 2014, the Toyota Land Cruiser 200, helped by its facelift, reclaims its title this year, even breaking the symbolic 10% market share milestone this month. The Hilux, also boosted by a new model, excels too at 8.1% share in September vs. 4.7% year-to-date even though it is trailing the Land Cruiser so far this year. Similarly impressive from the Nissan Patrol at #3, Toyota Land Cruiser 70 at #4, Mitsubishi Lancer at #5 and Pajero at #6.
