In the models ranking, for the first time since last August the Mercedes E-Class (leader over the Full Year 2012) is back on top with 212 sales and 5.4% share, however this is not enough to dethrone the Toyota Hiace even though the latter tumbles down to #9 this month. So far in 2014, E Class sales add up to 311 vs. 384 for the Hiace.
