For the first time in 2011 I can share with you a Chilean models ranking. Car sales in Chile are up a massive 32% year-on-year over the first 7 months of 2011 at 187,736 units. Three models sit within 0.1% share of each other on the podium: the Nissan Tiida is the best-selling model in the country over the period with 7,739 sales and 4.1% share, but is closely followed by the Chevrolet Sail, imported from China, at 7,674 units. The Sail was even #1 over the 1st half of the year.

Nissan Tiida

The Nissan Terrano (aka Frontier, the previous gen Navara) rounds up the podium and leads the commercial vehicles ranking with 7,549 sales and 4% share. The Terrano has been the best-selling pick-up in Chile for the last 6 years. The Chevrolet Spark is #4 at 6,979 units and 3.7%, followed by the 2010 market leader, the Hyundai Accent down to #5 with 5,309 sales and 2.8%.

Notice the Samsung SM3 holding itself very well in 7th place at 2.5% share and the Suzuki Alto breaking into the overall Top 10 at 1.9%. In the SUV ranking, the Hyundai New Tucson (2,326 sales) and Santa Fe (2,226) dominate, while the Great Wall Hover ranks #10 at 975 units. In the commercial vehicles segment, the SsangYong Actyon (2,662 sales) takes the 3rd spot and the VW Amarok ranks #9 at 1,253 units.
