20 best-selling cars in South Africa

The best-selling vehicle in South Africa in October 2021 was the Toyota Hilux – with 2,470 units sold across the various trim lines.

This is an impressive amount for one model range, as just the Hilux alone outsold entire brands like Kia, Haval, Ford, and Isuzu in October.

Toyota has held the crown for best-selling brand for some time, with the Hilux being the best-selling vehicle in South Africa for nearly all of 2021.

The data on the best-selling vehicles in South Africa is provided by Naamsa and is determined by looking at local vehicle sales only.

For October 2021, new vehicles sales as a whole are down by 2,095 units when compared to September, with the country’s best-selling cars also feeling this pressure.

Sales for the Toyota Hilux were down by 172 units. For the second-best-selling VW Polo, sales are down by 564 units.

This is a roughly 25% drop in sales for the Polo when compared to a month before.

Popular models like the Isuzu D-Max, Toyota Urban Cruiser, and VW Polo Vivo also experienced a downtick in sales – while others such as the Ford Ranger, Nissan Almera, and Renault Kwid saw a decent improvement.

“Adverse events that occurred during the month of October, including the three-week strike in the steel and engineering sector as well as the return of an acute load-shedding programme, impacted the new vehicle market and vehicle exports,” said Naamsa.

Detailed below are the top 20 best-selling vehicles in South Africa for October 2021.
