In January the Emirati new car market grows at exactly the same rate year-on-year as over the Full Year 2012: +27% to 28,682 registrations. Like in Saudi Arabia, the Toyota Corolla takes the lead of the models ranking this month thanks to 1,742 sales and 6.1%, potentially due to the current generation hitting runout mode in the wake of the arrival of the new model later in the year. The Toyota Prado is also very strong, up 3 spots on December to #2 at 1,453 units and 5.1%, while the Toyota Land Cruiser rounds up the podium with 1,405 sales and 4.9%.
#1 in 2012, the Toyota Hilux is surprisingly down to 4th place this month at 1,162 units and 4.1%. Notice also the Mitsubishi L200 up 3 spots on December to #6, the Mitsubishi Pajero up 6 to #8, the BMW X6 up a huge 56 ranks to #22, Nissan Micra up 70 to #24, Toyota FJ Cruiser up 65 to #32, Kia Cerato up 53 to #33 and the Toyota Avalon up from outside the Top 200 in December to #67 this month thanks to the new generation of the model.
