The Japanese carmaker distances Renault up 12% to 11.9% and Mitsubishi up 7% to 9.2%, both overtaking Hyundai down 27% to 8.2%. Nissan (+63%) and Suzuki (+194%) show spectacular growth and rank 5th and 6th respectively while Chinese Great Wall breaks into the Top 10 to #9 and 3.7% share thanks to deliveries up 41% on 2016.

The Nissan NP300 Hardbody soars 64% and five spots to #4 with the Mazda BT-50 (-18%) making it four pickups in the Top 5.
