January new vehicle sales: How South Africa compares

05.02.2018

The slump in new vehicle sales during December carried on into January with the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) recording a 8.9% drop from 50 386 to 45 888.

It was however a different story in both Australia and Brazil, with the latter improving by just over 22%, while sales in the United State inched up after nose-diving significantly in December. Sales in the United Kingdom though started the year off on the back foot again, with the downturn in diesel vehicle sales and Brexit worries being cited as the biggest contributors.

As the first comparison of the year, here is how South Africa's Top 10 best sellers from January stacked-up against those from the United States, UK, Australia and Brazil.
