World 2010: Toyota Hilux #1 in 28 countries

Best Selling Cars now covers 154 countries around the world, so we can rank models by the number of times they appear #1 in any given country (more on the methodology below). This is exclusive to Best Selling Cars, you won’t find it anywhere else! Toyota places 4 models in the Top 5, showing how established the brand is all over the world.

The Toyota Hilux is the model that appears most often in #1: in 28 countries, including 21 in Africa. The Toyota Corolla follows: #1 in 18 countries, and the only one across the 5 continents: Europe (1 country), Asia (6), Africa (9), America (1) and Oceania (1).

Then come the Toyota Camry, VW Golf (both 8 countries) and Toyota Yaris/Vios (7). For the list of all 57 models that appear #1 and in which countries they do so, see below.

Methodology: in case there is official data available, I have used the ranking in the latest year-to-date figures, and for a very small amount of countries the data can pre-date 2010 (eg Serbia, Portugal…). For the countries with no official data, the #1 models are estimations, but they are based on thorough observation of the streets of each country and therefore should be quite close to reality.

Number of countries in which the model ranks or is estimated to rank #1 best selling model:
