A pair of light commercial vehicles, the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, topped the charts in a fairly flat October, today’s industry car sales revealed.

VFACTS figures revealed today reported that 93,357 new vehicles were sold last month, down 1 per cent over October 2015. Annual sales are still on record pace despite this blip, up 2.4 per cent to 980,433.

Reflecting a growing penchant in Australia for utes as lifestyle transportation, the HiLux and Ranger beat all comers, edging out a trio of small cars — the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai i30 and Mazda 3.
