Cape Town - For the first time since being launched locally, the Land Rover Discovery had to bend the knee after failing to secure top spot.

The Range Rover/Sport/Velar found 99 new owners, a mere three units ahead of the formidable fifth-generation Land Rover Discovery (96 units).

Double figures all-round

In third place, Toyota sold 84 units of its venerable Land Cruiser 200.

Behind the Land Cruiser comes the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee only managed to sell 70 units followed by the Range Rover Evoque on 61 units.

Jaguar’s F-Pace slipped down to sixth place overall after managing to sell only 48 units. Another Toyota stalwart, the Prado, also slipped down the ranks on 41 units.

Leading the final trio in the top ten is the Audi Q7, after selling a commendable 27 units. The Volvo XC90 remained in the list with a sales figure of 25 units.

The Volkswagen Touareg completes the top ten with 23 units.
