The Malaysian new car market is up 2% year-on-year in March to 58,919 registrations, bringing the First Quarter total to 159,910 units, up just 1% on 2013. Perodua at 27.7% share and Proton at 20.9% are very close to their year-to-date levels (27.5% and 20.5% respectively), but Toyota shoots up to 16.8% share thanks to 9,886 sales in March vs. 15.1% so far in 2013. Boosted by strong sales of the all-new Vios, can Toyota threaten Proton for the 2nd spot overall later this year? The entire Top 8 brands are identical in March vs. year-to-date. Let’s also salute Kia back up 6 spots on February to #9 and Chevrolet up two to #8
