Cameroon: Hilux on top
* Click on title for Cameroon street scenes! *
The car market in Cameroon is still relatively limited with 3,167 new vehicles sold in 2007 (vs. around 75,000 yearly used car sales). Toyota holds close to half the market (40% in 2004 – last official figures) and should place the Hilux ahead of the ranking in the country.
Other successful models in Cameroon include the Toyota Hiace, Nissan Hardbody, Suzuki Grand Vitara and Mitsubishi L200. More than half the cars in circulation are various generations of Toyota Corolla and Starlet (many of them as taxis) but the latest Corolla has not made its mark.
