Posted in Automotive
Wednesday, 10 February 2016

During 2015, more Australians than ever went out to buy themselves a new motor vehicle. They bought 1,155,408 new passenger cars, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and commercial vehicles. This was 3.8% more than in 2014 and it broke the record set in 2013.

SUVs were so popular, sales grew 15.9% and they made up a whopping 35.4% of the market, up from 31.7% in 2014. In fact, Australians bought more SUVs than small cars, even though small cars made up four of the top 10 bestsellers.
