Mauritius 2010: Old gen Nissan March & Sunny likely leaders

Nissan March

* This post is based on recent YouTube videos of the streets of Mauritius *

We welcome country #160 on BestSellingCarsBlog: Mauritius! This island located in the Indian Ocean mainly favours Japanese models, with Nissan looking like a stand-out winner. The previous generations Nissan March and Sunny are still on sale in the country and should lead the models ranking, with the March a clear favourite among rental car companies.

Nissan Sunny

The Mauritian car landscape is a mix of small cars like the Toyota Yaris, Mitsubishi Colt or Honda Jazz and pick-ups like the Isuzu D-Max, Nissan Hardbody and Mitsubishi Triton but interestingly the current gen Toyota Hilux is quasi inexistant. Similarly there are a lot of old gen Toyota Corollas on the streets but the current gen is sparse. Notice also a bit of French influence with the Renault Clio and Peugeot 308 doing well, as well as the Chinese discreetly making their mark with the Great Wall Hover.

    I just got the official list of the best selling cars in Mauritius from a local motor magazine here. They only give the top 5:
    1. Chevrolet Cruze
    2. Mercedes C-Class
    3. Hyundai i10
    4. Nissan Qashqai
    5. Kia Cerato

    The website of the magazine is http://motormag.totalh.com/ but they have the list on in their magazine.

    I’m from Mauritius and I got to say that the best selling cars here in 2011 are not what you have mentioned above. The Chevrolet Cruze is the best seller here in 2011, along with the new gen Nissan Micra, the Great Wall Wingle 5 pick-up from China, the Ford Ranger and the Mitsubishi L200 (Triton).
