Nigeria 2010: Corolla king of the roads

Toyota Corolla in Lagos, Nigeria May 2010

The Nigerian market is one of the biggest car markets in Africa, and it’s yet another one dominated by Toyota, and particularly the Toyota Corolla: based on the observation of the country’s streets through recent YouTube videos, the model should secure a market share North of 12% in Nigeria.

The podium should be 100% Toyota with the Hilux in 2nd and the Camry in 3rd. Following them could be the 1995 Peugeot 406, still produced in Nigeria, the Toyota Hiace, Kia Rio & Cerato, Hyundai Accent and Honda Civic.

More commentaries and pictures below.

Peugeot 406: originally released in 1995, it is still built in Nigeria.

Other successful models in Nigeria include the Mitsubishi Pajero, the 2001 Peugeot 307 (also built here), Honda Accord, Hyundai Elantra, VW Passat, Toyota Prado (with a nice career ahead judging by the number of old gens on the roads), Yaris Sedan, RAV4, Sienna and 4Runner.

This speculation is based on the observation of the streets of the main cities in Nigeria through 2010 YouTube videos. If you have more information about the Nigerian market please make sure to get in touch!
