Cape Town - The positive trend in new vehicle sales was maintained during February, characterised by noteworthy gains in light commercial vehicle as well as medium and heavy commercial vehicle sales, according to the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of SA (Naamsa).

However, the consumer-driven new car market registered a decline.
