Australia November 2010: Corolla #1 for the first time this year

Solid numbers in Australia with +2% year-on-year in November at 87,342 registrations and +12% YTD at 948,487. 2010 will be only the third year in history the Australian market is above 1 million units.

In November the Toyota Corolla is #1 for first time in 2010 with 4,536 sales and 5.2% (its best share since July 2009), ahead of the Holden Commodore (3,771 – 4.3%). The very first time the Corolla was on top of Australian monthly sales was in September 2005, and it has been #1 at least twice in the following years: 2006 (2), 2007 (3), 2008 (2) and 2009 (3). In 2010, the model slipped to #4 overall and #2 in its category behind the Mazda3.

With its exceptional November performance, the Corolla jumps back up to #2 overall (behind the Commodore) and leader of its category.

The Holden Cruze gains two spots over October at #5 with 3.1%, both its best position and best share to date, reaching both for the 2nd time in 2010. It is only the second time in 5 years (with September 2010) that Holden places 2 models in the Top 5.
