5 Of The Most Popular Cars In New Zealand

It’s always good to keep up with ever-changing car trends to see what’s hot and what’s not in New Zealand. So, we will look at five of the most popular motors in 2022 so far. 

  1. Toyota Corolla (Hatchback)

The evergreen Toyota Corolla is almost always in the top 5 most popular vehicles for as far back as you wish to look. These perfectly plucky cars never fail to please. Toyota is a favoured brand of Kiwi drivers. They have been proving their worth since the mid-60s in New Zealand. Get your hands on this car and keep it well looked after by our qualified mechanics.

  1. Mitsubishi ASX (SUV)

This stylishly aggressive-looking SUV has been a hit in New Zealand. Rising petrol costs have done nothing to ward off potential buyers from making the plunge with larger vehicles. We do have our fair share of rough and rugged roads on these two islands which may explain something. If you need to go off-road and require 4WD to do so, consider the ASX to get you to the most remote parts of the land.

  1. Toyota RAV4 (SUV)

The RAV4 speaks for itself. It has long been a popular choice as a new car or one of the most popular second-hand cars on the market. The introduction of hybrid variants has been a hit, with the SUV becoming more economical overnight. These are great for getting up and over the mountains in winter by adding winter tyres from Drury Tires.

  1. Toyota Hilux (Ute)

Even with supply shortages damaging sales, the Hilux comes in the top 5. It’s difficult to get from one set of traffic lights to another without seeing one of these pass you. Seemingly pipped to the post in terms of popularity, Kiwis still love the Hilux and that’s been proven again so far this year. 

  1. Ford Ranger (Ute)

The Ford Ranger comes out on top and proves utes still reign supreme. These earth movers are always amongst the top selling cars year on year due to a range of engine options and interior tech. Upgrade yours with mag wheels at Drury Tires to stand out from the crowd.
