SALES GAME

4 x 4 Australia - - The Score -

WITH June sales fig­ures now tal­lied there is a pat­tern set­tling in, show­ing what is sell­ing well this year in dual-range 4x4s – and what isn’t.

The top 10 list (right) points to a strong one-tonne ute pres­ence, with eight utes on the board and just two wag­ons.

Even then, the Toy­ota Prado has slipped a po­si­tion since last month, over­taken in the year-to-date tally by the Holden Colorado. Prado sales have suf­fered a 3.7 per cent de­cline in the YTD fig­ures, and a 21.2 per cent hit for June.

Yet not all wagon sales are peg­ging back. Land Rover’s Dis­cov­ery 4 is ap­proach­ing its last year with some strong sales fig­ures – the premium wagon is up 9.4 per cent YTD. An­other large wagon to grow in pop­u­lar­ity is the Toy­ota Land­cruiser 200, up 14.8 per cent YTD.

At the other end of the scale is the Suzuki Jimny. The ever­green small 4x4 has sold 471 units to the end of June, down 18.1 per cent on the same pe­riod last year.
