The previous generation Toyota Fortuner is the best-seller in Venezuela.
In a country decimated by the economic crisis, the association traditionally reporting sales data in the country, the Cámara Automotriz de Venezuela (CAVENEZ), closed its website in 2017 and the Cámara de Fabricantes Venezolanos de Productos Automotrices (Favenpa) did so in July 2018. However production and sales data is still available, and shows that in 2019, only 459 vehicles were produced in the country, down -60.3% on 2018. Only three brands produced in Venezuela in 2019, with Toyota accounting for the 92.6% of the total volume and Iveco and Mack sharing the rest of the tally. The Toyota Fortuner, Hilux and Corolla are the most produced vehicles in Venezuela in 2019.
