For the second-straight year the Toyota HiLux ute has been named Australia's best-selling vehicle. After claiming the crown in 2016, the HiLux has retained the throne at the top of the 2017 sales charts, with a huge 47,093 examples of the ute sold – that number accounts for 4x2 and 4x4 sales across all body types (single-, extra-and dual-cab).
Mazda’s popular medium SUV is the Japanese brand’s second-biggest seller after the Mazda 3. The second-generation CX-5 launched early in 2017 and improved on its popular formula with more room, quiter ride and enhanced handling. Of note, too, was a bigger boot.
