Angola 2010: Hilux and Mitsu L200 top a dynamic market

Observation of the streets of the capital Luanda show that the Angolan car market is quite developed, and dominated by the Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi L200. Other very popular cars are the Chevrolet Matiz, Toyota Fortuner, Suzuki Jimny, Toyota Yaris and Chevrolet Aveo.

Estimated Top 15, street videos and street scenes below.

Based on the observation of 2009/2010 YouTube videos of the streets of Luanda, I have estimated what the Angolan Top 15 should look like. This is pure speculation so please get in touch if you have more info about car sales in Angola.

Pos Model
1 Toyota Hilux
2 Mitsubishi L200
3 Chevrolet Matiz
4 Toyota Fortuner
5 Suzuki Jimny
6 Toyota Yaris
7 Chevrolet Aveo
8 Nissan Hardbody
9 Hyundai Santa Fe
10 Suzuki Grand Vitara
11 Toyota Prado
12 Ford Ranger
13 Nissan Tiida
14 Hyundai Tucson
15 Kia Rio

As far as the structure of the Angolan car park is concerned, there are lots of old gen Corollas and Starlets, and first gen RAV4’s in the streets, but this doesn’t seem to have translated into the last gens being part of the best-sellers in the country.

Below are 3 very instructive recent videos of the streets of Luanda:
