The Toyota Hilux is once again the favourite model in the country with 5,716 sales and 9.4%, ahead of the Toyota Corolla at 5,061 units and a very strong 8.1% share, its best since last January. Helped by the new generation, the Toyota Camry climbs onto the podium for the first time this year thanks to 3,359 sales and an excellent 5.5% share. This means the Saudi models podium is 100% Toyota for the first time in 2012.
