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.
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.
