After focusing on Australian June sales we can now go through the all-models ranking for the 2nd Quarter of 2015. Lots of movement in a traditionally very stable ranking and a surprise on top: regularity at high levels is rewarded for the Toyota Hilux, finishing #1 over the period at 10.243 units, just above the leader year-to-date, the Toyota Corolla at 10.073 sales. Fresh from its historical overall June win, the Hyundai i30 climbs onto the podium during the 2nd Quarter with 9.485 deliveries – 58% sold in June. All this activity knocks the Mazda3 down to #4 ahead of the Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi Triton, both improving on their Q1 respective rankings (#6 and #8). The VW Golf at #8 and Holden Colorado at #10 are the other significant gainers in the Top 10.

Outside the Top 10, SUVs make for the majority of improvers: the Toyota Prado is up to #14 vs. #21 in Q1, the Isuzu D-Max is up 12 spots on Q1 to #16, the Toyota Kluger takes advantage of its new generation to leap up 10 spots vs. Q1 to #17, the Mazda CX-3 lands at #21 with 3.386 sales for its first full quarter in the Australian market – an astounding performance that leaves its direct competitor, the Honda HR-V although impressive at #26 with 3.069 units, in the dust. Other great performers in the Australia Top 50 over the 2nd Quarter include the Kia Cerato up to #24 (#32 in Q1), the Subaru Outback at #30, the VW Polo at #34 (#45 in Q1), the VW Amarok at #35 (#42), and just outside, the Holden Captiva 5 at #51 (vs. #69) and the Isuzu MU-X at #52 (vs. #58).

Among nameplates launched or re-launched this year, the Suzuki Celerio is up 34 spots on its Q1 ranking to #128, the Hyundai Sonata is up two to #138, the Renault Captur up 6 to #142 and the BMW i8 up 19 to #253. There are six “new” models reaching Australian shores over the period, led by the Land Rover Discovery Sport at #147. 3 Holdens – that are in fact Opel rebadges now that the brand was terminated here – arrive: the Astra Sport at #179, the Cascada at #182 and the Insignia at #227. Add to these the Chinese-made LDV G10 at #264 and the Mercedes AMG GT at #274 for a complete listing of the Australian newcomers in Q2.
