    V FACTS JAN 2018

    "The first month of new car sales figures of 2018 released by the federal chambers of automotive industries tells a very familiar story.
    Toyota's HiLux was again the top selling vehicle with 3860 units moved, while the Ford Ranger was again second best with 3260 sales.
    While no other dual-cab ute managed to make the top 10, the light commercial segment still enjoyed a strong start to the year with whole market up by just more than 20 per cent compared to the same month last year. This was due to several large improvements by the Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi Triton as well as the two sales leaders.
    The Mazda3 (3201) took the early bragging rights in the passenger car stakes leading the Toyota Corolla (2776) and Hyundai i30 (1850).
    Mazda's SUVs had a strong month with the mid-size Mazda CX-5 (2152) and CX-3 (1582) city SUV both appearing in the top 10 and topping the respective segments.
    SUVs as whole had a strong month in January with a 10.9 per cent increase on last January, this continues the trend seen throughout the last few years as buyers shed traditional passenger cars in favour of high-riding wagons.
    On the back of this strong growth were solid sales of the Toyota RAV4 (1780) and Nissan X-Trail (1668). Hyundai's Tucson (1420) and Honda CR-V (1474) were also both knocking on the door of the top 10 sellers.

    The Volkswagen Golf (1629) improved its performance compared to January last year with almost 25 per cent more sales.
    Two notable absentees from the first top 10 sellers of the year were two former locally-made stalwarts: the Holden Commodore and the Toyota Camry with each falling well short of 1000 sales with 871 and 754 registrations respectively.
    Both large and medium car segments are down considerably which continues the decline of nthe traditional family car in Australia.
    Luxury carmaker has mixed success in January with Mercedes-Benz and Lexus both up about 9 and 7 per cent respectively, but Audi was down by more than 20 per cent from last year, while BMW was flat.

    Interesting to note lack of Astra and Colorado Sales?

    Also Commodore is running out 871 for the month.

    Dash, not surprised one bit colorado isn't there.
    Just as the Triton sells on price colo is the same, unless its discounted the person in the know knows to shop elsewhere.
    Note 6 of the 10 manufacturers split are Jap, 2 Koreans and the 2 US brands.
    Look at Mitsubishi just behind Ford/GM in overall numbers and well for me their stuff is pretty ordinary and imo below them Honda/Kia/Subi make a far better product in general.
    Says it all, price price price for some.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.
    Sydney is Sky Blue HAL Premiers/Champions 2017 - the Double.

    Mits win people on price and warranty. Their national fleet is also growing by the day (which is not that great for them as a business).

    Yeah I'm sure I heard an ad in the wireless the other day for a (presumably) povo pack double cab 4x4 triton for 30k brand new.
    That's pretty decent buying.

    Mitsu are starting to get their act together to a degree. They are getting better but delivering that cheap, reliable product. Not fun to drive or look at but cheap and reliable. That does appeal to a huge amount of buyers.

    Aren’t they pretty much giving up on cars soon? I’m sure I read somewhere they see the future is in suv style vehicles so that’s where they are concentrating their development budget.
    Seems like lancer hasn’t had a proper update for about 50 years

    Yer, terrible figures in the big ball game.

    Tritons are woeful and quoted by the many I know in 4x4 industry etc....
    Consumer/fleets whoever buy on price.
    If you had a better budget you wouldn’t bother.
