Like every Quarter we now have access to a full models ranking for Australia over the first 3 months of 2013. In addition to the historical developments of the last few months when Holden was passed by Nissan then Hyundai for the first time due to the weakness of the Commodore, there are two very clear trends in this models ranking: Utes (Aussie for pick-up trucks) and SUVs. To illustrate this, he biggest year-on-year progressions in the Top 13 are delivered by the Mazda CX-5 (+216%), Ford Ranger (+103%), Hyundai ix35 (+71%), Toyota Hilux (+33%), Mitsubishi Triton (+31%) and Nissan Navara (+24%)…
Honda takes advantage from a renewed range with the Civic up a massive 227% and 48 spots to #14 and the CR-V up a mammoth 703% and 88 ranks to #19. After a shy start, the Nissan Dualis (aka Qashqai) has found its groove in Australia slashes its ranking by two to reach #16, up 42% year-on-year, while the Nissan Pulsar becomes the best performing all-new model, landing directly at #26 with 3,267 sales and 1.2% and even breaking into the monthly Top 10 in March.
Further down, notice the Jeep Grand Cherokee up 84% to #33, the Isuzu D-Max up 44% to #41 and the Hyundai Santa Fe up 80% to #53 while the Great Wall V-Series is starting to lose steam, down 38% and 22 spots to #60. As far as newcomers are concerned, the Mitsubishi Mirage is a success, landing directly at #39, the Toyota GT86 brilliantly breaks into the Top 50 at #48, the Nissan Almera ranks #67, VW Up! #88, Toyota Prius C #92, Mercedes A-Class #104, Holden Colorado 7 #120 and Opel Astra #130.
