South Africans love their cars and when it comes to choosing a car brand, we know what we want! Many factors play a role in a car brand’s status including reliability, maintenance, affordability, comfort and image, but sales quantity remains the decisive metric to rank popularity. Below is a list of the top car brands in South Africa sorted by general popularity.

Even though rankings might change slightly every year, the main contenders are undeniably Volkswagen, Toyota and Ford overall and, when it comes to luxury marques, South Africans hardly look elsewhere than the German trio: Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi. Other makes such as Hyundai, Mazda and even Kia have gained a lot of traction in recent years and are slowly but surely clawing their way onto the list of SA’s most favourite brands.
