The extra shipping cost and import duty that is usually incurred when purchasing brand new cars are one of the major reasons why most Nigerians prefer to buy Tokunbo/Foreign Used cars than new ones.
There is an increasing number of the Nigerian population that now prefer SUVs over sedans or coupe mainly because of the elegance, spaciousness and luxury SUVs provide as well as their drivability on bad Nigerian roads.
