The Toyota Corolla has made the Hyundai i30’s record four-month winning streak, as per the sales figures for July.

The Toyota Corolla surpassed the Hyundai i30 after its sales struck the brakes once the Korean automobile’s previous discount rate of $7500 was eliminated.

The Hyundai i30, which published an 11-year sales high in June throughout all vehicle types, took a huge dive in July, with deliveries down by a shocking 65 per cent, from 6400 to simply 2200.

For the majority of this year the Hyundai i30 hatchback has actually been priced at $19,990 drive-away for an automatic model, a discount rate of about $7500 off the complete RRP.

However in July Hyundai raised the rate to $22,990 drive-away for the i30 automatic.
That’s still a discount rate of $4500 off the complete RRP, although it reveals that buyers are becoming more smart about when to go shop for a deal.

Mazda was a casualty of the battle in between the Corolla and the Hyundai, with sales of its small automobile down so significantly that it failed to finish inside the Top 10 for the very first time.
