The Toyota Hilux continues its run at the top of the sales charts by not only grabbing the title of top-selling vehicle in February 2019 but also the country’s best-selling bakkie.

Hilux sales for the month of love totalled 3504 units, eclipsing that of the second-placed Ford Ranger by nearly a thousand units.

The Ranger managed a tally of 2578 units.

Touching 2000

The Nissan NP200, the only remaining half-tonne bakkie in South Africa, narrowly missed out on a monumental sales figure of two thousand units; the little Nissan managed to secure the signatures of 1999 new owners to grab third place in February.

Behind it the Isuzu D-Max showed strong pace as it sold off 1186 units last month, followed by the Nissan NP300/Hardbody on 922 units.

In sixth place the Volkswagen Amarok sold 495 units, followed by the ever-impressing Mahindra Scorpio Pik-up (226 units).

The Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up managed to secure a sales figure 224 units, while the GWM Steed managed 145 units in ninth place.

The Nissan Navara rounds off the top ten with 111 units.
