Following on from its amazing run last year, the Tianjin Xiali is the first passenger car to sell more than 100,000 units in China in 6 months, at 103,100 by end of June 2006. The Hyundai Elantra was 2nd then at 99,900 sales, followed by the Buick Excelle at 98,800 and the VW Jetta at 97,600.

The Full Year ranking ends up being radically different. The Xiali was #1 up until July, but then, boosted by an exceptional summer (18,844 sales in August), the VW Jetta reclaimed the pole position it held in 2004, finishing the year at 176,844 sales (+24%).
