  • Chad

    Grand Cherokee flogs prado again and craptiva almost out sells the prado and the prado is a new model, something strange is happening…

    • Darryl

      All to do with the numbers to the right of the $ sign.

    • MisterZed

      Prado isn’t new, it came out several years ago.

      • Chad

        Yes but it’s just been face lifted at the end of last year so there shouldn’t be a supply issue and the old models should have been gone at the end of last year

        • Doctor

          But it was hit with the ugly stick like the coming Kluger. Jeep looks good – Craptiva is cheap!

        • MisterZed

          What’s your point? The Grand Cherokee was also facelifted last year.

      • Easy?

        Whether or not the facelift came out late last year or not, it’s not as simple as dropping a new oil burner, new bigger gear box and upping the towing capacity. If it was, I’m sure they would have done it… magacially made it bigger and put a 1VD in it.

        A full new model will be the only fix for the Prado. The unfortunate thing I see with a full new model is the fact I wouldn’t be surprised if it was no longer a cab chassis.

    • Chris

      Holden is about to release a face lifted Captiva as well

    • Cheech

      Wait until those Jeep buyers go and sell their cars !!!!!! OUCH!

    • Phil

      Prado is losing the crown. it is probably because of the new controversial look, Dated D4D + pricy (no terrain control on basic model, etc.) in compare with the competitors, like Jeep GC and Pajero. Jeep really does a great job in the current model, more power, fashionable look, inherited the offroad capability from presuccessor, but less rigid. Anyway, who really care. More importantly, 10k+ cheaper on basic model.

  • David Rome

    Well done Mazda

  • Civic Sales

    I’m interested in this months sales for the Civic sedan. Is there a way I can find out or does anyone know? Thanks.

    • LowRezFez

      A cardigan wearing bowls club member may be able to help.

      • Civic Sales

        Lol

    • http://www.caradvice.com.au/ Alborz Fallah

      I can’t tell you sedan only, but the Civic as a hatch and sedan total combined was 848 (4.3% of small car marketshare) for Jan 2014 – last year this time it was 1,397.

      • Civic Sales

        Thank you :)

  • Jon

    Good on the Ford Fiesta for placing, it is a worthy contender.

    • sffdcg

      Thanks to 1.9%.

    • JT

      Cheap finance in January is what boosted the Fiesta, watch it fall back to it’s usual low numbers this month….

  • nugsdad

    Hey, Opel outsold Infiniti, Maybe the wrong one went home?

    • PM

      Yeah, suddenly everyone wants what they can’t have….idiots !!!!

  • Golf

    Mercedes-Benz A-Class oversold Ford Falcon…

  • BJsba

    The Lexus IS250/350 is really challenging the 3-series & C-class

  • marc

    So the Captiva is a large SUV? Also, the bureaucracy of pigeon-holing categories is stupid and ever expanding. Why not just produce a full list of sales of inidividual cars in the top 50.
