Sri Lanka: Nissan Sunny continues long-term domination

* Click on title for street scenes! *

The observation of the streets of Colombo through YouTube videos shows a Sri Lankan market inspired by its neighbour India (Maruti Alto definitely in the Top 3), but with strong specificities: the Nissan Sunny seems to have been by far the best selling car in the country for many years.

Other specificities include the Honda Civic, Toyota Vios and Toyota Avanza likely to be in the Top 5. One Indian trait is the Tata Indica also looking like being pretty successful in Sri Lanka.

    remember this alto is also a japanese model. Tata they do have their own cars. maruti is almost from suzuki Japan. if u see Bombay roads in 2012. u can see all the cars are foreign brands.
    dont get mislead with world famous brand having a plant in India. they are for their market. not for export coz they are not in the export quality.

    its the biggest joke of the year to say that Srilanka manufacturers better car than Indian counterparts ! better getter the numbers/statistics and comment so!

    9 of the TOP 10 manufacturers in the world has manufacturing facility in INDIA ! – iam not considering them

    take MARUTHI and TATA , they produce world class cars – ALTO is the top selling car in the world – this is frm maruthi

    NANO – cheapest car in world produced by TATA -

    these are very small examples – waiting for your ccomment !

    Well Sri Lanka manucatures its own cars as well by the name of Micro. They have a very good model better than the Indian ones.
