Volkswagen again showed its dominance by grabbing the top two positions for best-selling passenger cars though Toyota would have the most number of vehicles in the top ten in July 2018.

The VW Polo and Polo Vivo secured the top two positions, but this time around the bigger Polo got the better of the hot favourite Vivo. VW managed to sell off 2817 Polo’s last month, some way clear of the Vivo’s 2321 units.
