Toyota's hugely popular and successful Hilux, the bakkie segment leader, faces some stiff competition this year. It currently accounts for approximately 3 000 units sold on average each month in South Africa. Squaring off against an all-new Ford Ranger (another bestselling model in SA) and the new Isuzu D-Max that arrives in a few months, the Hilux will undoubtedly have to work hard to maintain its sales dominance.

The Hilux also faces stiff competition from light commercial vehicles that undercut it on price. At the moment, the most affordable single-cab Hilux you can buy in South Africa is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol model that comes as a chassis cab (you don't get a load bed or aircon or any creature comforts). It's priced at R304 200.
