Philippines 2005-2008: Toyota Kijang Innova in the lead
The Filipino car market is relatively small at 97,000 registrations in 2005, and Toyota has a stranglehold on it with an impressive 37% market share that year. The Toyota Kijang Innova, just launched, takes the lead immediately with 12,130 sales in 2005 and 12.5% of the market. It will be on top of the Filipino market in 2006, 2007 (with 10,544 sales) and 2008.
Back to the 2005 ranking: the Toyota Vios is #2 and best selling passenger car with 8,358 sales (8.6%). Then two Filipino curiosities follow: the Mitsubishi Adventure, built in the country, is #3 with 5,900 sales and 6.1%, and the Isuzu Crosswind, manufactured in neighbouring Indonesia, is #4 with 5,340 units sold and a 5.5% share.
