Mazda CX-5 tops sales charts as Australia continues SUV love-affair…

Mazda CX-5 Australia’s favourite SUV in January 2017

It is one of the most remarkable things we have seen in the car industry in recent times – the continued and growing success of the Mazda CX-5.

What’s remarkable is that the current edition model is just a couple of months away from being superseded, however Australian customers are still flocking to the Mazda offering.

Almost always, when a model is about to welcome a new-generation version, sales drop and often quite dramatically.

But not so with the Mazda CX-5.

January 2017 SUV sales data provided by VFACTS shows the CX-5 was delivered to 1,924 Australian customers in the month – a figure above other big-selling SUV models such as Nissan X-TRAIL, Hyundai Tucson and Mitsubishi ASX.

The Mazda triumph means the brand scored the top spot in both the SUV and passenger car segments in January.

Overall, Mazda was the SUV market leader as well with 11.8% market share, just 0.2% ahead of Toyota.
