Cape Town - Volkswagen's powerhouse duo, the Polo and Polo Vivo, once again topped the sales charts as we list the best-selling vehicles in South Africa.

Both new generations of Polos were launched earlier in 2018 and immediately rose to the top of the local passenger sales market. They did, however, not beat the Toyota Hilux in terms of overall sales, with SA's favourite bakkie finding 3825 new homes in March 2018.

The Vivo leads passenger car sales with 2736 units, followed by the Polo with 2121.
