that keep the Com­modore at or to­wards the top, it’s reg­u­larly out­ranked by Toy­ota’s Corolla and Hilux and the Mazda3.

But in red Oc­to­ber, Volk­swa­gen’s Golf played ad­mi­ral to the Com­modore. In the week the Strayan icon’s lo­cally pro­duced fu­ture was ques­tioned, the numbers con­firm it was beaten out­right by a Euro­pean for what is thought to be the first time.

On a more pos­i­tive note for the Gen­eral, its Cruze sedan de­liv­ered an­other solid per­for­mance with 2805 sales lock­ing down sixth spot. Holden will be sali­vat­ing at the prospect of a sig­nif­i­cant boost at year’s end cour­tesy of the just-launched Cruze hatch.

Of course, Golf’s stun­ning 3337 sales, largely on the back of a na­tion­wide drive­away deal, isn’t likely to be re­peated in a hurry. It posted a 169 per cent in­crease on the same month of the pre­vi­ous year, a re­turn that’s rarer than the sound of mirth at a Fal­con dealer.
