Nissan (14.9%) and Mitsubishi (13%) complete the podium and are the only two other manufacturers to post a double-digit market share in Congo. Below Isuzu and Mazda, Peugeot is the best-selling non-Asian brand in the country at #6 ahead of Hyundai and Daihatsu while Ford and Mercedes round out the Top 10.
The Isuzu D-Max is by far the most popular vehicle in Congo in 2017 with 7.4% share, just as the Toyota Hilux at 4.9% makes it a pickup 1-2.
