Toyota Auris

* See the Top 100 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to Austin *

As usual after exploring the passenger car Top 30 and the Kei car Top 20 in Japan, we have a more detailed look at overall August sales split by version and with Light Commercial Vehicles added. This is to see how the Toyota Prius Alpha and Honda Fit Shuttle perform among other things. And once again this little game is won by the Toyota Aqua at a very respectable 19,076 sales, with the August podium identical to last month’s: the Honda NBOX is #2 at 17,308 units and the Toyota Prius #3 with 15,670 sales.

Mitsubishi Mirage

Both the Suzuki Wagon R and Daihatsu Tanto/Exe are up one spot to #4 and #5 respectively, while the Honda Fit is down two to #6. Excellent performances of the Suzuki Every Wagon/Carry, up 3 ranks to #7 and 10,733 units, of the Nissan Serena up 7 to #8 and of the Suzuki Alto/Capin up two to #9.

The original 1957 Toyoace

Further down, notice the Toyota Porte appearing at #17, its twin the Toyota Spade up to #18, the Mazda CX-5 up 11 spots to #25, the Suzuki Swift up 15 to #26 and the Toyoace up to #58. There are two very significant newcomers in the Top 60: the Mitsubishi Mirage goes from just 5 sales in July to 1,392 and #56 this month while the Toyota Auris, now that the 2nd generation is available in Japan, lands directly at #59 with 1,139 units.
