Best-Selling Cars from Every Brand in South Africa

Best-Selling Cars : With a diverse automotive landscape featuring over 40 automakers in South Africa, consumers have a plethora of choices when it comes to selecting a new vehicle. The latest sales figures for September 2023 reveal intriguing insights into the preferences of South African car buyers. Among the 46,021 new vehicles sold in the country during this period, one notable trend stands out – the popularity of crossovers and SUVs.

Crossovers and SUVs have dominated the South African market, with consumers showing a strong affinity for these versatile vehicles. Whether it’s the budget-friendly Kia Sonet starting at R350,000 or the premium BMW X3 at R980,000, the practical body style of crossovers and SUVs has captured the hearts of South African car buyers.

Notably, bakkies (pickup trucks) also found favor with South African consumers, with top sellers from Ford, Isuzu, JAC, Mahindra, Nissan, and Toyota all falling into this segment, amassing hundreds, if not thousands, of sales.

Hatchbacks, often associated with urban driving, are another popular category. The Fiat 500, Opel Corsa, Suzuki Swift, and VW Polo Vivo were among the top choices for those who preferred a smaller, more agile ride.

On the other end of the body style spectrum, only one sedan, the Honda Amaze, and one MPV, the Mitsubishi Xpander, emerged as the best-selling vehicles for their respective automakers. This highlights the shifting preferences of South African car buyers towards more spacious and versatile vehicles.
