After giving you December and Full Year 2013 figures, let’s have a look at the last quarter of the year in detail in Australia, so we can track how well recent launches are faring. The top of the ranking is identical to the Full Year results with the Toyota Corolla leading the Mazda3 and Toyota Hilux, while the Holden Commodore and Toyota Camry are each up one spot to #4 and #5, passing the Hyundai i30 at #6. Other great performers in the Top 30 include the VW Golf at #8 vs. #12 over the Full Year, the Jeep Grand Cherokee testing new waters for the brand at #16 and 1.5% share vs. #27 and 1.1% in 2013, the Toyota Kluger at #20 vs. #28 and, surprisingly, the Ford Falcon back up to #21 and 1.2% share vs. #35 and 0.9% over the Full Year.
Further down, the Mitsubishi ASX is up to #34 vs. #46, the VW Amarok continues to climb the ladder step by step at #41 vs. #49, the Holden Trax is up to #63, scoring 77% of its annual sales over this quarter, the Nissan Pathfinder is up to #66 vs. #108 thanks to the new model, the Nissan Juke is up to #87 with 96% of its annual sales, the Mercedes CLA up to #102 with 87% of 2013 sales over this quarter, Renault Clio up to #117 with 67% thanks to the 4th generation arriving in Aussie dealerships, the Nissan Altima at #146 with 94%.
We have 7 models making their very first appearance in the Australian ranking over the period: the Lexus ES at #155 with 187 sales, the Ford Ecosport at #170 with 128 units, Isuzu MU-X at #178 with 120 sales, the Suzuki S-Cross and Proton Exora both with 50 units, weirdly the Opel Zafira Tourer with 12 even though the carmaker has now quit Australia less than a year after launching here, and the Proton Suprema S with 3 units sold over the period.
