Corolla topped the passenger-car sales charts for a sixth consecutive year and Camry celebrated its 25th straight year as the country's best-selling mid-size car.

The string of popular models was instrumental in Toyota dealers increasing sales by 0.2 per cent to 217,061 vehicles, the fourth consecutive year of higher sales.

Toyota was the only brand with market share in double figures at 18.8 per cent, an improvement of 0.6 points. Total industry sales exceeded 1.1 million for the seventh year in a row.

Last year was the 14th year time Toyota has sold more than 200,000 vehicles, the 16th year in a row it has led local sales and the 22nd occasion as overall market leader. 

Toyota made history with its SUV sales passing 80,000 deliveries and light-commercial vehicles (LCVs) eclipsing 70,000 vehicles - both milestones achieved for the first time by any brand.
