Traditionally full of surprises as most of the country stops for Summer holidays, January was further disrupted this year in Australia by dramatic floods in Queensland. The market is down 2% at 73,584 registrations, but -13% in Queensland.
Boosted by a 2.9% financing offer with 4,045 sales and 5.5% share, the Toyota Corolla is #1 for the 3rd month in a row, the first time it manages this feat in Australia. In 2nd place, the Mazda3 reaches its best-ever share at 4.9%, and is followed by a weak Holden Commodore at 3.6%. The Subaru Impreza breaks into the Top 10 for the first time at #9 with 1,765 sales and 2%.
