The sales status quo has been restored, as the Australian automotive market closes in on another record haul of new vehicles.
Once again the Toyota HiLux (4103) and the Ford Ranger (3576) are the best selling vehicles in Australia after conceding the top spot last month to the Hyundai i30 which has fallen down to sixth place with 2227 November sales according to the latest data from the Federal Chambers of Automotive Industries.
Toyota continued its strong month with the Corolla (2959) coming in at third place, well ahead of small car rival Mazda3 (2464) in fourth position.
The small car segment as a whole is enjoying a strong finish to the year with sales growth between six and 10 per cent compared to the corresponding October and November months last year. And while small cars are still Australia's most popular new car segment, medium SUVs and utes are hot on its heels.
Driving that growth in the popular mid-size SUV segment are the class leading Mazda CX-5 (2358), which was the fifth best selling vehicle in November with the Hyundai Tucson (2121) in seventh and Toyota RAV4 (1950) in eighth spot.
The aging Mitsubishi ASX continues its strong year with 1948 sales in November, which was good enough to place it in ninth place overall and helped drive a 31.1 per cent increase across the city SUV segment compared to November last year. The ASX sales also helped cement it as Australia's favourite little SUV, extending its lead over the Mazda CX-3.
Rounding out the top 10 was the Hyundai Accent (1914) which is fighting the good fight in the struggling city car segment that has seen a sales decline of 10.5 per cent compared to last year through 11 months.
