August new vehicle sales: How South Africa compares

06.09.2017

South Africa's new vehicle sales recorded its third consecutive month of increases in August, with the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) reporting a upswing of 6.7% from last year's 46 131 units to 49 222.

The latest gain stood in-line with those in other markets, namely Australia and Brazil, while the ongoing slump in the sales of diesel vehicles had a significant impact on the United Kingdom.   

Here is a quick look at how South Africa's Top 10 best sellers from August compare to those from the States, UK, Australia and Brazil.
