Car rhymes with Toyota in Uganda with up to 3/4 of vehicles in circulation being a second hand, old gen Toyota Corolla, Camry, RAV4, Hilux or Hiace (as taxis). The new car market in Uganda is virtually non-existant, but given the composition of the traffic in the streets of the capital Kampala, the Toyota Corolla should lead the ranking ahead of the Toyota Hilux.
