The Mazda CX-5 has reclaimed its ranking as Australia’s favourite SUV with a record sales month in June.

Mazda sold 1955 CX-5s for the month, putting it 155 units clear of the resurgent Ford Territory, which enjoyed its best month since June 2007 with 1800 vehicles delivered across the country.

Just four cars separated third and fourth place with the Toyota RAV4 (1666) claiming the podium ahead of the Nissan X-Trail (1662).

Toyota featured prominently in the top 10 with the Toyota Prado ranked fifth (1613) and Toyota Kluger seventh (1390). The Nissan Dualis (1395) split the two in sixth place.

The Hyundai ix35 (1360) grabbed eighth place, while Subaru’s popular duo claimed the remaining two spots in the top 10, with the Forester (1218) leading the smaller Subaru XV (1001).

The Prado is the top-selling SUV for the year on the back of a 54 per cent sales increase, followed closely by the Nissan X-Trail and the Territory, which are both up 53 per cent.

Despite not making the June top 10, the consistent Holden Captiva 7 (959) finds itself in the 2012 top 10 with 5157 vehicles sold so far.
