September’s sales of 2,095 sedans represent an increase of 24% over September last year.

As of August, Toyota has sold 133,059 vehicles in 2015. No other brand had reached 66,000 sales so far this year, putting Toyota more than 67,000 vehicles in the lead.

The humble Corolla looks set to follow in the footsteps of the classic Camry, which is now in its 22nd straight year as Australia’s best-selling mid-size car. Toyota’s top 10 selling vehicles also include the HiLux in the 4×4 space.

Executive Director for Sales and Marketing, Tony Cramb, predicted that upcoming new models, including the next generation HiLux, a new 7-seat family off-road SUV, and improved engines for the Prado and GXL, would result in another surge of customer demand. This could result in Toyota’s 13th year in a row as the auto industry sales leader.
