The Malaysian new car market is down 3% year-on-year in July to 58.646 registrations, with the effects of the Hari Raya festive season and aggressive sales promotions being counter-balanced by consumer wariness in the wake of the introduction of GST in April. The year-to-date total is also down 3% on 2014 to 380.830 deliveries. Market leader Perodua drops faster than the market at -6% but remains the uncontested #1 brand with 30.6% share ahead of the other local manufacturer Proton at 18.5% (-2%). Boosted by the exceptional start of the HR-V crossover (see our exclusive 2015 Malaysian monthly models data here), Honda surges 26% year-on-year in July to overtake Toyota again land snap the third spot overall with 14.4% share. Other great performers include Mazda (+36%), Mercedes (+90%), Audi and Lexus (both at +51%) while Hyundai (-53%) and Kia (-61%) implode.
