South Africa isn’t a place most people would associate with Toyota, but change could very well be in the wind if the new C-HR has anything to say about it. The SUV more than tripled its original sales target, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Other models in Toyota’s SUV lineup are seeing rising sales as well.
The new Toyota C-HR is an SUV that’s seen a massive jump in sales. The standard 1.2-liter turbocharged engine and sleek styling has made it a popular model among South African drivers. The new model saw an incredible 11,055 units sold in March 2017, its first month on the market. That’s given it a major boost toward the top of the small SUV segment.
The Toyota Fortuner isn’t doing too badly either. The model dominated the competition to land at the top spot of the large SUV segment. A total of 1,312 units left dealership lots.
On top of that, the Toyota RAV4, a model American drivers are more than familiar with, saw sales increase to 640 units for the month.
Such incredible sales gains across the board have resulted in Toyota to take 22.8% of the market share, making the Japanese automaker the leader for the first quarter of the year.
We at Capital Toyota are pumped to see the new C-HR doing so well
