Women in South Africa love bakkies, that's according to AutoTrader SA's most-searched for vehicles by the fairer species.

Overseas it might be a mom’s taxi or a nippy little hatchback, that’s certainly not the case in South Africa!

Wheels24's Janine Van der Post is not really surprised at the results: "Initially when I saw the top 10 list of most-searched-for vehicles by women, my socks were blown off. I was not expecting a Toyota Hilux bakkie to top the charts, and even less expecting to see the Ford Ranger in third place.

"However, it makes sense. On your next commute home or on your way to work, take a look out your window and pay attention to who is behind the wheel of the bakkie beside you in traffic. More and more women are taking the wheel of large SUVs, and even more so, of bakkies.

Surprisingly 72% of our readers think that SA women want to drive SUVs, and 15% think it's entry-level or city cars, and only 5% think women are interested in bakkies.

However, the Toyota Hilux is the most-searched for vehicle locally, while the Ford Ranger is the third most searched-for vehicle in SA.
