If you are walking around the streets of Maputo, you will immediately notice that you are surrounded by Toyota braded vehicles. Toyota is the most popular brand in Mozambique and it dominates the car markets in the country. The core reasons for the dominance of Toyota in the Mozambican market are the easily availability and cheap price of spare parts as well as the availability of garages that handle minor servicing and maintenance, paint as well as heavy maintenance of those vehicles.
Recently, the models Toyota Altezza, Surf, Matrix and Harrier are the most widely wanted in the market. But, models such as Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sunny and Suzuki Swift are also very popular due to their lower price and low fuel consumption.
Brands such as Honda, Land Rover, Audi etc. also have significant share in the Mozambican market. However, due to their expensive price, high price of spare parts, uneasy access to garages of some of these brands, relatively higher fuel consumption, re-sale value, etc. they are less popular.
