New car registrations up

6:10 am on 7 October 2010

New car registrations rose almost 13% in September, buoyed by a pre-GST rise rush and more rental vehicles.

Almost 6300 cars were registered during the month, up 12.6% on the same month last year.

Commercial registrations rose 13%.

Toyota was the top selling make, followed by Ford, Holden and Mazda.
