Model-wise, the Toyota Hilux (+14.8%) sails off in the distance, now selling more than double the amount of its archenemy the Nissan NP300/Hardbody (-6.1%) but the hero of the year is the Toyota Land Cruiser Pickup (+80.8%) landing on the third step of the podium and toppling the Isuzu D-Max (+35.8%), itself in outstanding shape.
