For Honda Malaysia, the 2015’s sales achievement has been their highest since 2002. The positive growth is attributed to Honda Malaysia’s current product line-up, which consists the best-selling compact variants; namely the Honda City, Jazz and HR-V. The three best selling Honda variants easily averaged approximately 70 percent of the marque’s overall sales figures, and the Honda compact variants are more preferred by younger buyers or first-time car purchasers.

UMW Toyota Motor has held on to the lead in the non-national category for more than 20 years. However, due to their more rigid variants and segregated vehicle line-ups, which are skewed towards the more matured demographics, sales have not been too bad overall but they’ve lost the lead in the non-national category for 2015. Toyota’s top sellers in the domestic market include; the Vios, Altis, Hilux and Camry.

We await further announcements from both manufacturers for complete details of sales performance and related activities.
