Toyota manages to outsell traditional leader Thaco-Kia with 5.318 units and 26.3% share vs. 17.9%, roughly swapping their FY16 levels. Mazda (14.2%) and Ford (12.6%) for their part are frankly above their FY16 of respectively 10.5% and 9.5%. Honda remains 5th while Chevrolet, Mitsubishi and Mercedes all climb one spot, taking advantage of Isuzu’s plunge to #12. Model-wise, the Toyota Vios remains the most popular choice ahead of the Ford Ranger up three spots on December to #2, the Mazda3 up one to #3 and the Toyota Fortuner up 5 to #4. Reversely, the Toyota Innova and Kia Morning both drop 3 spots to #5 and #6 respectively.
