Though the Toyota Vios model still ranked first in terms of sales in 2016, other Toyota cars that topped the charts in 2015 were bumped down and some disappeared from the top 10 best selling cars in Vietnam in 2016.

The Toyota Innova and Fortuner, though still making it into the three best-selling cars in Vietnam in 2016, dropped from their second and third spots to make place for the Ford Ranger and the Kia Morning.
The Altis and the Camry, meanwhile, did not make the cut.
According to data realeased by the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association, in 2016, Vietnamese customers bought a total 304,427 units, up 24 per cent against last year. Of the volume, passenger car sales was up 27 per cent, commercial vehicle sales 25 per cent, and special-purpose vehicle sales 33 per cent versus last year.
Sales of completely knocked down cars was up 32 per cent and completely built up cars 5 per cent.
VAMA forecast that 2017 sales volumes would be about 10 per cent higher than in 2016.
Below is the graph of the 10 best-selling cars of 2016 with their total sales figures.
