The Volkswagen Polo Vivo comprehensively outsold its big brother, the Polo, becoming the best-selling car in February 2019.

A favourite amongst car buyers, the Vivo secured a huge sales figure of 2692 units. That figure not only makes it last month’s best-selling passenger car but also the second-best selling vehicle in South Africa behind the Toyota Hilux (3504 units).

The second-placed Polo sold off 1605 units, while the soon-to-be-replaced Toyota Corolla/Auris/Quest secured third place with 1247 units sold.

Look at the Kwid!

Renault’s budget-beating Kwid jumped up the sales chart to fourth place, following an impressive month in which it sold 1069 units. It toppled regular best-sellers such as the Toyota Fortuner (950 units) and Hyundai Grand i10 (901 units) as the last vehicle in our list to exceed the 1000-mark.

The Toyota Etios slots into seventh place with 660 units sold, followed by the Hyundai i20 on 542 units. The Datsun Go, refreshed towards the end of 2018, sold 529 units.

The Kia Picanto goes tenth with 483 units.
