* See the Top 32 All-brands and Top 236 All-models by clicking on the title *

The new vehicle market in South Africa is down 3% year-on-year in April to 44.503 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 204.529 deliveries, down 0.8% on 2014. If the entire manufacturer Top 8 ranking is unchanged on March with Toyota, Volkswagen and Ford at the lead, the surprise comes from the models ranking this month. The Ford Ranger shoots up to pole position with 3.095 sales and 7%, that’s the Ranger’s 6th time above 3.000 monthly units in the past 7 months and its all-time high market share in South Africa. This astonishing score earns the Ranger the year-to-date pole position, edging past its archenemy the Toyota Hilux at 11.645 units vs. 11.432. The VW Polo and Toyota Corolla overtake the VW Polo Vivo to rank #3 and #4 respectively while the Datsun GO is back up 11 ranks to a best-ever 15th place. Among recent newcomers, the Land Rover Discovery Sport lands at #119, the Citroen C4 Cactus is up 38 spots to #127 and the Changan Star arrives at #138.
