Pinjarra Murray Times - - DRIVEWAY -

TOY­OTA last week stopped pro­duc­ing cars in Aus­tralia and Holden will do the same from next week.

Those de­vel­op­ments had quite an ef­fect on Septem­ber car sales.

Camry and Com­modore sales rose as buy­ers snapped up the last of the lo­cally-built mod­els, but the over­all mar­ket was down 2.4 per cent na­tion­ally and 3.1 per cent in West­ern Aus­tralia.

Toy­ota re­mained the best sell­ing brand, fol­lowed by Mazda, Hyundai, Mit­subishi, Holden and Ford.

But over­all in­di­vid­ual model hon­ours went to Ford Ranger, which un­seated HiLux for the first time.

Next came Toy­ota Corolla, Mazda3, Com­modore and Hyundai i30.

The big Ford Ranger was Aus­tralia's top-seller in Septem­ber.
