2014 car sales: Australia’s Hottest 100

2014 car sales: Australia’s Hottest 100

The complete list of the Top 100 vehicles rockin' Oz

THINK YOU know your cars? Let’s play a game: try and name Australia’s top 10 selling vehicles for 2014.

Odds-on you won’t get all 10, but if you did, your list will be dominated by small cars. Four of Australia’s top 10 new cars in 2014 were small cars, including the top three: Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30.

This is the Corolla’s second successive year on top, with Mazda 3 taking the top honours the two years before that.

In sad news for patriots, the last time a locally made car topped the list was in 2010, when the Holden Commodore pipped the Corolla, with Mazda 3 third.

Last year Aussies bought more 1.1 million new cars, making 2014 the seventh million-plus market in eight years.

So how did your car perform? Check the list of Australia’s Top 100 models below to see, and check how many of the Top 10 you nailed.
