In addition, Lexus sales also increased strongly to 157% compared to 2018, equivalent to 1,511 vehicles.
The best-selling product of Toyota Vietnam in 2019 continues to be Toyota Vios. 2019 is not a favorable business year for this B-class sedan when it no longer guarantees the absolute “king of sales” position. In the first 2 months of 2019, Toyota Vios is continuously surpassed by the C-sized crossover Honda CR-V.
The idea that after regaining form, the product of the brand “good” will once again maintain its position, in October and November 2019, Mitsubishi Xpander – cheap MPV model imported from Indonesia – pushed Vios down to No. 2 in the top 10 car models of the month.

Inside, Toyota Fortuner is the best-selling 7-seater SUV segment with cumulative sales in 2019 of 13,337 vehicles. The shift to assembling 4 versions in Vietnam helps the supply of Toyota Fortuner more stable, leading to many incentive programs, both from genuine and dealers.
For Toyota Innova, the decline is inevitable when the cheap MPV segment boomed in 2019. First is the success of Mitsubishi Xpander, then comes Suzuki Ertiga Back to the Vietnamese market with the latest generation and gradually attract the attention of consumers, making the name “old village” as Toyota Innova also encountered a little influence. However, this medium-sized MPV model still maintains a steady selling power of about 1,000 cars per month.
In addition to welcoming Toyota Fortuner back to the domestic assembly line, another big decision of Toyota Vietnam in 2019 is to bring the new generation of Toyota Camry to Vietnam but in the form of CBU imports from Thailand.
Owning a modern interior / exterior design, much younger than the previous generation, along with a range of equipment to help the brand’s product “wholesome” no longer inferior to rivals with segment, but the proposed retail price of the Toyota Camry is 70 million dong cheaper than the assembly time. These factors have made sales of D-class sedans continue to boom in 2019.

After launching a new generation in late April 2019, the sales of Toyota Camry rapidly grow, at about 400-500 vehicles / month and peak in October 2019 with sales of up to 821 units.
In addition to the main information above, in 2019, Toyota Vietnam will also bring an upgrade between the life cycle of Toyota Avanza and a slightly improved version of Toyota Avanza.
