Liberia 2010: Hilux leader, Nissans rule the streets

Toyota Hilux in Monrovia, Liberia

Liberia is still in the midst of recovering from the long civic war that tore the country apart, so understandably priority is not given to cars in this context. About half of all cars in circulation in the streets of the capital Monrovia are old gen Nissan Sunnys, mainly as taxis.

Nissan indeed largely dominate the car landscape in Liberia, with the Frontier and Patrol also very popular, but ss far as new cars are concerned it should be a different story. My bet is going on the Toyota Hilux as the best selling vehicle in liberia in 2010, ahead of the Toyota Land Cruiser 70 favored by NGO’s.
