Top 100 new cars sold in Australia in 2019

The Toyota HiLux was the best-selling vehicle in Australia last year. Surprised? We’re not.

As motoring journalists, we’re often guilty of only looking at the pointy end of the scale when it comes to important things like the new-vehicle market.

Indeed, our wrap of the 2019 sales results released last week focused on the top-10 brands and models, but it got us thinking about taking a broader look.

So, here we are presenting to you the top-100 new vehicles sold last year. As you’ll find, there is a lot of figurative red ink here, but there are also a few success stories. Enjoy.
