November new vehicle sales: How South Africa compares

06.12.2017

New vehicle sales posted a sixth straight increase in November with the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) recording a 7.2% hike from 46 397 to 49 754.

The upswing again mirrored those of markets such as Australia and Brazil, yet stood in stark contrast to the United Kingdom where the ongoing slump in the sales of diesel vehicles, as well as the fallout from Brexit, left sales down by 11.2%.

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