Avanza Becomes King Again, Xpander Runner-Up


The Toyota Avanza again won the title of the best-selling car in Indonesia throughout 2021. During January-December 2021, sales of the Toyota Avanza (including Veloz) were recorded at the highest.

This is based on wholesales or distribution data from factories to dealers released by the Indonesian Automotive Industry Association (Gaikindo). The Avanza again occupies the top position of the best-selling car in Indonesia after being evicted the previous year.

It is known, the Toyota Avanza has always been the best-selling car from year to year. However, in 2020, the MPV, nicknamed the car of a million people, lost to the Honda Brio and Suzuki Carry. Understandably, 2020 has been a challenging year for the automotive industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now in 2021 during recovery, the automotive industry is starting to rise. This makes car sales also increase.

Data from Gaikindo noted, throughout 2021 wholesales or distribution from factories to car dealers reached 887,202 units. This figure is up 66.8% compared to the previous year’s acquisition which was only 532,027 units.

Meanwhile, in retail or sales from dealers to consumers, there were 863,348 units. Retail car sales throughout 2021 also rose 49.3% compared to 2020 which was only 578,321 units.

Regarding the best-selling car, sales of the Toyota Avanza, including Veloz, were recorded at the most in Indonesia. Throughout 2021, Toyota will release 66,109 Avanza-Veloz units.

Meanwhile, Avanza’s closest competitor is the Mitsubishi Xpander, which is the second best-selling car in Indonesia. During 2021, Mitsubishi Xpander sales were recorded at 54,624 units.

On the other hand, the Suzuki Carry will be the best-selling commercial car in Indonesia during 2021. Sales of the Suzuki Carry are recorded at 52,854 units and are ranked as the third best-selling car in Indonesia.

Then, in fourth place is the Toyota Rush with sales of 52,533 units. Closing the top five, there is the Toyota Kijang Innova with sales of 49,745 units.
