El Salvador: Hilux should lead a pack of pick-ups
Videos of the streets of San Salvador, the capital city of El Salvador, reveal that in all likeliness the Toyota Hilux is the best selling car in the country. Salvadoreans are very fond of pick-ups: the Mazda BT-50, Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Frontier are also very popular.
Other successful models in El Salvador include the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Getz, Kia Picanto and Toyota Corolla.

This speculation is based on the observation of recent YouTube videos of the streets of the country. Please do get in touch if you have any more info about car sales in El Salvador.
