If you are walking around the streets of Lilongwe, you will immediately notice that you are surrounded by Toyota braded vehicles. Toyota is the most popular brand in Malawi and dominates the car markets in the country. The core reasons for the dominance of Toyota in the Malawian 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 model Toyota Corolla is the most widely wanted in the market.
Models such as Toyota Axio, Paseo, Carina and Vitz are very popular due to their lower price and low fuel consumption; their small size also makes them easy for parking. But Nissan is also present on this market too, with its urban models: Note and Tilda.
Brands such as Volswagen, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, BMW, Honda, Suzuki etc. also have significant share in the Malawian 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.
