July new vehicle sales: How South Africa compares

08.08.2017

New vehicle sales recorded a second consecutive month of upswings in July, with the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) recording a 4.1% hike from 44 870 units in 2016 to 46 719 this year.

The apparent small gain is however in stark contrast to other markets, with the United States and United Kingdom in particular suffering substantial losses, the latter in particular due to the ongoing effects of Brexit. 

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