The Nicaraguan car market is pretty easy to read as 2 cars stand out by far: the Toyota Hilux, probably the best-selling car in Nicaragua, and the Toyota Yaris Sedan following not far behind.

Other popular cars in the country include the Suzuki Grand Vitara, Chevrolet Spark & Aveo, Hyundai i10 & Accent and Mitsubishi Montero (aka Pajero). The Great Wall Hover can also be noticed on Nicaraguan roads.

This speculation is based on the observation of recent YouTube videos of the streets of the country, so please get in touch if you have any more info about the Nicaraguan car market.
