Trinidad & Tobago 2011: Toyota Hilux should hold pole position

Toyota Hilux

We welcome country #157 on BestSellingCarsBlog: Trinidad & Tobago. The car landscape in these two Caribean Islands is mostly Japanese, with pick-up trucks seemingly dominating the models ranking. I can pretty confidently say that the Toyota Hilux is the best-selling car in the country but this domination looks like it only dates back to the launch of the current generation of the model.

Nissan Wingroad

There is a very strong Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sunny heritage on the roads, but since the Sunny name was dropped this seems to have translated into strong sales of the Bluebird Sylphy and more interestingly the Wingroad, Trinidadian consumers being very fond of station wagons.

The Nissan Frontier and Navara, still both on Nissan's catalogue, seem to be the other two top selling pick-ups. Other successful models are the previous gen Mitsubishi Lancer, Honda CR-V, Suzuki APV, Toyota Hiace and Mazda BT-50.

    The beat is the best and will always be the best the toyota hilux 4x 4 d/c is the best in quality and handling, the navara is good but it carries many issues and it is not a 4×4 ready vehicle. The mazda is a work horse give it that, but resale and durable parts is a no no

    I am from Trinidad and Tobago and I think the data is wrong. Actually the Ford Ranger and Mazda BT 50 are the leaders in our market. Close to them would be the Nissan Navarra. Too much reported issue with the Hilux (VIGO).
