Another month above 100,000 registrations in Indonesia in April at 102,199 units, up a huge 33% year-on-year and bringing the year-to-date total to 398,121, up 22% on 2012. This is the 7th time in the last 11 months the Indonesian market breaks the 100,000 monthly unit-barrier whereas it had never happened before June 2012… No surprise in pole position: the Toyota Avanza still reigns supreme with 19,798 sales and 19.4% share, its highest in the last 12 months! Year-to-date, an astounding 68,362 Avanzas found a buyer in the country after just 4 months…

The big event is in 2nd place: for the second time in the last 3 months the Suzuki Ertiga manages to hold that spot at 5,917 units and 5.8%, an exceptional performance indeed and an indication that Suzuki’s replacement of the APV by the all-new Ertiga may turn out to be an all-out success. The Toyota Etios breaks into the Indonesian Top 10 for the first time, up 9 spots to #9 with 2,719 sales and 2.7%. For now the Honda Brio still leads the category at 5,024 units year-to-date even though it is out of the Top 20 this month, but it is interesting to notice that after just two months, Indonesia has become the 2nd market in the word to welcome the Etios in its Top 10 after South Africa.
