While waiting for the 2016 ranking, we want to relieve the 2015 top 10 fast growing car brands in Australia.
The Australian automotive market was on record pace in 2015 with a 3.6% growth over 2014. In line with 2014, during 2015 five out of ten brands with faster sales growth in AU were European brands. Note that some very small-volume European brands have been excluded from the ranking, such as Ferrari (+ 75.3%), Lamborghini (+361.1%) and McLaren (+52.6%).
Among all European brands, at SFUK we highly recommend you UK cars.
At the moment, the British Pound is not as strong as it used to be. As a consequence, there is a favourable exchange rate between the British pound and the New Zealand Dollar as well as the Australian Dollar. Now is the ideal time to take advantage and buy an even cheaper UK car.
