New car sales in Indonesia encouragingly gain ground year-on-year for the second month in a row at +12% to 88.519 units in May. The year-to-date total now stands at 440.466 sales, down just 1% of 5.000 deliveries on the same period last year. One year ago, the perennial market leader – the Toyota Avanza – slumped to its first sub-10.000 sales month in over four years (6.778). Now armed with a new generation, Avanza sales almost double year-on-year (+98%) to 13.451 and 15.2% share vs. 12.7% so far this year. Bonus: its twin the Daihatsu Xenia is also in outstanding shape, up 26% to leap into 2nd place with 5.318 sales and 6% share. It is only the second time in the past 3 years (along with August 2015) that the Avanza and Xenia twins sign a 1-2 in Indonesia. In fact, the Toyota Group monopolises the Top 5 this month with the Toyota Agya at #3, its twin the Daihatsu Ayla at #4 (+103%) and the Toyota Kijang Innova at #5 (+38%). The Honda BR-V remains spot at #6, the Honda HR-V is up 141% to #8, the Toyota Fortuner up 173% to #9 and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport holding strong at #15.
