WHICH Toy­ota will be­come Aus­tralia’s best-sell­ing car for 2016?

It’s a very close race between HiLux and Corolla, the pair sep­a­rated by just 615 sales, with less than a month to go.

As well as be­ing in the box seat for the No. 1 ve­hi­cle, Toy­ota will be the top-sell­ing au­to­mo­tive brand in Aus­tralia for the 14th year in a row and the 20th time over­all.

Toy­ota posted a strong Novem­ber with a mar­ket-lead­ing to­tal of 18,162 sales – more than the com­bined to­tals of the two clos­est ri­vals.

As a re­sult, Toy­ota deal­ers have sold al­most 190,000 ve­hi­cles so far this year.

HiLux sales last lifted its to­tal so far this year to 38,018 de­liv­er­ies, while Corolla sold 37,403 cars.

A full-year vic­tory for HiLux will make his­tory as it would be the first time a ute has be­come Aus­tralia’s best-sell­ing car and it would take the ti­tle from its sta­ble­mate Corolla which has held the ac­co­lade for each of the past three years.
