Despite its economy, Nigeria still manages to strive, and so do its people. The average working-class Nigerian owns at least one car, depending on the job, or if he is independent, everyone loves to avoid the curt dismissals of Lagos conductors to ride in their own vehicles bumping to Fela’s classic jams.
On the other hand, in view of the financial strain and looming responsibilities, one has to be thrifty, and as such, the choice of cars to buy is limited to a few. Here is where we come in. In order to make buying of cars easier for you, we have compiled a list of cars Nigerians love to drive and the good thing is they are all available in our inventory. Let’s do this
1. Toyota Corolla
If you walk two poles from your street without seeing a Toyota Corolla on the road, check if you’re in Nigeria or Niger republic. The Toyota Corolla is considered as the World’s bestselling car after it overtook the Volkswagen beetle in 1997. The Corolla is sold in over 150 countries and regions and the company sells 1 Corolla every 15 seconds. Perhaps the strength of millions of Corolla’s that have been sold lies in their easy maintenance and fuel efficiency.
This is one car that Nigerians love to drive and you can buy it without hurting your pocket.
2. Mercedes Benz C CLASS
The Mercedes Benz C CLASS series is like the Volkswagen Beetle of the early ’70s our fathers drove in their prime. But unlike the Beetles, the Mercedes Benz comes with a class of its own. In fact, whether you’re talking about the C200 or the C250 not to mention the C300, you’re considered as the few Nigerians that goes for power and luxury in a car.
Mainly driven by youths, the Mercedes Benz is a car for everyone and by everyone we mean, you can buy it and gift it to your parents or grandparents. A look into our inventory will give you a knowledge of the accessories of these cars.
3. Lexus ES350
Every Lexus car turns heads. Well, to be clearer, the new generation Lexus. Before Nigerians used to get obsessed with the Lexus RS 350 but lately, the Lexus ES 350 has been winning the hearts of Nigerians. It is a close sister to the Toyota Corolla just that it offers more feel and luxury, and gives you that attention you need in an event. There are many models of this car which offers excellent ride quality and surprisingly capable handling.
4. Toyota Sienna
The Toyota Sienna is the first vehicle in its class (minivans) to offer an all-wheel drive. It has successfully become a household vehicle in Nigeria. It is a vehicle that leaves no one behind during a road trip. Well, if the family size is not more than 8.
Before the Sienna overtook the Nigerian market in terms of offering more cargo space and luxury with a grain of fun, the automobile market in Nigeria was inundated with Peugeot stations wagons. Times fly, and things change.
5. Honda Accord
“For we did not speak of our own Accord” but what we have witnessed on Nigerian roads. The Honda Accord climbs that chart when it comes to cars Nigerians love the most. Why do Nigerians love this car aside from its sporty look? Firstly, it is because of its reliability, which means the car holds on to its value. Most Nigerians see buying a Honda as making a great investment. And you should too.
6. Range Rover Sport
There is a picture advert on our site with the caveat “If you earn a status, live it”. This best explains why Nigerians love the Range Rover Sport. Admittedly, it’s not a car for everyone but for few who are looking for more luxury in an SUV. Range Rovers are expensive because the people who can afford them fall in love with the brand, their real story,(reliability) and their luxury.
7. Toyota Camry
Now we end this post with the Toyota Camry. The one Nigerians refer to the Camry 2.2. The Toyota Camry is a good sedan vehicle that has great resell value. It is also loved by Nigerians because it is fuel-efficient. It is fun to drive and it even comes in hybrid. Now we’ve trimmed down your list in choice of cars to buy, check our inventory and let’s help you buy that car of your dream today.
