This is going to be an exciting year for the car industry with a host of new models being released and already we have a list of the Best Selling Cars And Covers of 2023.Well, not quite the best-selling covers yet but as always, the most popular selling vehicles will have the most popular selling car covers to fit.
A new vehicle just picked-up is a good time to invest in a quality car cover. With so many car cover sizes on the market, it can be hard to know which one to choose. Here is a list of the best-selling cars of 2023 to help you make the right decision on what to buy for your new car.
Lets look at the top-selling 10 vehicles in Australia.
(Information courtesy of FCAI mail on line.)
1. Australia’s top selling Car again - Toyota HiLux
The dual-cab Ute is still the most favoured vehicle in Australia and on top of the list is the ‘unbreakable’ Toyota HiLux again!
Car Cover for Toyota HiLux Dual Cab
To find a cover for the Toyota HiLux Dual Cab we first need to look at the dimensions. The height is from 1750 mm to 1960 mm; width is from 1800 mm to 2020 mm. The most critical measurement is the length which ranges from 5265 mm to 5330 mm. All quality car covers are made to balloon out or ‘tent’ out from the narrowest part over the cab. The sides are held firmly with elastic hemming and tie-downs front and back so once you have the right length, the width is not so important. As with the height, particularly on a relatively high dual cab Utes. If the cover is a few mm short, all that occurs is you see the bottom of the tyres. The vehicle is fully protected by the cover.
Indoor cover for Toyota HiLux Dual Cab
The Toyota HiLux Ute is too long for any off-the-shelf (generic) car cover. A Custom made cover is the only option. A custom-made bespoke cover in 200g/m2 with a free logo of your choice would be around $790 delivered.

Toyota Hilux Single Cab Ute is Height 1690mm x Width 1800mm x Length: 5330mm.

The outdoor Stormguard Waterproof UTE Car Cover 5.4 is a good fit.
Hail Cover – there is no specific Ute hail cover for this size but the 5.27 Premium Hail Sedan wagon will protect the single cab Ute quite adequately
2. Australia’s second-top selling Car Ford Ranger
Another dual-cab Ute comes in as Australia’s second best-selling vehicle this year. To find a
cover for the Ford Ranger, again we first need to look at the dimensions. The height is from 1852 mm; width is 1977 mm. The most critical measurement is the length which ranges from 5265mm to 5446mm.

5. Mazda CX5 cover for car
Our second most popular medium size SUV is the Mazda CX5. Over-all the Mazda CX5 is the fifth largest-selling vehicle in Australia. To find a cover for the Mazda CX5, again we first need to look at the dimensions which are 1675 x1845 x 4575mm.

6. Toyota Corolla The Best-Selling Cars And Covers of 2023
The Toyota Corolla has been the best-selling sedan in Australia for many years. It still comes
number 1 in sedan sales but that is the sixth largest selling vehicle in Australia. To find a cover for a Toyota Corolla, you first look at the dimensions, and in particular, the length of the car. Please note, the Toyota Corolla of 2023 is longer than the Corolla of a few years ago so check the length of your Toyota Corolla if it is older. The current Toyota Corolla has length of 4,530 mm, width of 1,705 mm.

7. Toyota Landcruiser - The Best Selling Cars And Covers of 2023
The Toyota Landcruiser has been an Australian favourite SUV for many years and still makes the top 10 in best-selling vehicles in Australia. The Landcruiser is another vehicle that has become bigger as the years pass so these recommendations are based on the 2022-2023 models. The Landcruiser dimensions are the Landcruiser measures 1950mm in height, 1980mm width 4980mm in length. NOTE: although this basic model is just fractionally over 4.9m in length, it is a relatively wide vehicle. The 4.9m covers will be too small so we must go up to the larger size.

Toyota Landcruiser Indoor Car Cover
The Toyota Landcruiser is too long for any off-the-shelf (generic) car cover. A Custom made cover is an option. A custom-made bespoke cover in 200g/m2 with a free logo of your choice looks fantastic on the Landcruiser. The Evolution cover is a light indoor outdoor cover and will fit the Landcruiser.
The Toyota Landcruiser Ute – Please look above at the Toyota Hilux Single Cab Ute. They are very similar in size and the same cover for the car will fit.
8. Isuzu Ute D-Max Car Cover
Another large dual-cab Ute, The Isuzu D-Max comes in at the 8th best-selling vehicle in Australia. Before we choose a cover, we look at the dimensions of the D-Max. It comes in at 1790mm in height, 1870mm width and 5285mm length so it is very similar in size to the best-selling Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux. Look at the top to the best-selling Toyota HILUX and anything that fits the HILUX will fit the D-Max.
9. MG ZS - cover for car
The first time in Australian history, a Chinese made car is a top 10 best-seller. The MG ZS is a small SUV where the low on-road price is just too attractive for many motorists. Look at the dimensions of the MG ZS and we find a heigh of 1644 mm, width is 1809 mm, and the length is 4314 mm. Any small SUV cover up to 4.5m will be a good fit for the MG ZS
