Guatemala 2010: Yaris, Hilux and Aveo on top

The Guatemalan car market is a relatively difficult one to approach as it seems to be quite fragmented. However, 3 models should stand out in the rankings: the Toyota Yaris Sedan, Toyota Hilux and Chevrolet Aveo.

Other strong sellers in Guatemala are the Mazda3, VW Polo, Mitsubishi Lancer, Hyundai Santa Fe, Suzuki Grand Vitara, Mazda B-Series and Hyundai Atos (dedicated to taxis). The Mazda 323 sedan must have been #1 in the country a few years back judging by how many of them are still swarming the streets today. There is also an unusually high number of Volvos in the Guatemala City streets!

More commentaries and pictures below.

This speculation is based on the observation of recent YouTube videos of the streets of the country. Please do get in touch if you have more information of the Guatemalan market!
