The Lexus IS comes in two engines, the 2.5-litre V6 and the 3.5-litre V6 engine and Nigerians love them both. The biggest problem with the Lexus IS would be that its close to the ground but people still don’t mind and oh yes, the rear seat is very tight which makes the car unsuitable for drivers with standard families.

The ease with which you can modify/upgrade/facelift a Lexus IS in Nigeria also makes it a car that easily sells. It is amazing what you can do with a Lexus IS and about ₦300,000 in upgrade parts.

Too many G-Wagons live in Nigeria

The G-Wagon is the one used car for sale in Nigeria that is very expensive but very common and this tells us one thing. Everybody wants this car. I have proved this some months ago. I counted over 15 G-Wagons driving around the Ikoyi area of Lagos in just 30 minutes at 11:30 pm. This just tells us that almost every rich man in Nigeria has/wants a G-Wagon.


Almost every House in Ikoyi has a G-Wagon

The G-Wagon AMG G63 sells the fastest in Nigeria because of its powerful bi-turbo V8 engine and the roaring exhaust that makes it stand out. That boxy shape will forever remain one of the best automotive designs in the world.

The G-Wagon is also an SUV that can be easily upgraded even from a 2000 model to a 2020 model because of the shape that never changed. This also makes a lot of Nigerians opt for the G-Wagon. They know they can make it look like any year model they want.

The Toyota 2nd and 3rd generation RAV4 is a compact Toyota SUV that Nigerians love to buy because it is sleek. The car places you on the level of a well-earning Nigerian civilian and a lot of people love this impression.

A lot of car dealers talk about how the RAV4 is even scarce in Nigeria because it doesn’t stay long on sale. However, you should be careful when buying a Nigerian used RAV4 because there are a lot of badly maintained ones out there.
