BARELY a month after its local launch, the new Toyota Hilux reclaimed its spot as the best-selling bakkie in SA.

Pre-orders for the Hilux were more than a thousand units ahead of launch and according to the latest Naamsa sales figures, a total of 3273 new Hilux units were sold in March.

More than 60% (2000 units) were double cabs.

Top-sellers in SA

The Ford Ranger has been a consistent top seller for the past year even trumping the previous-generation Hilux on many occasions. The new Hilux however, given its history in SA, could maintain the top spot for many years to come.
