Let us consider the prices of various models of Toyota Hilux in Nigeria.

Toyota Hilux Prices in Nigeria (Brand New)

With automobile users’ interest constantly drifting towards pick-up truck types all over the world, there can only be a constant demand of Toyota Hilux. In this class of automobile market, Toyota Hilux undoubtedly commands the floor.  Thanks to its flexibility and ruggedness, users in Nigeria and all over the world prefer this Toyota brand to any other pick-up model.

Toyota brands rarely run out of stock. Although it will be almost impossible to get brand new versions of Toyota Hilux models below 2003, you can comfortably go to the company’s offices all over the world or international distributors to purchase later models. In Nigeria, be sure that the prices you will get a brand new Toyota Hilux will be heavily dependent on external factors that include custom clearance and tariff fees. Also, the currency exchange rate at the moment of purchase plays a major part in determining the eventual price of a brand new Hilux in Nigeria.

On the average, a brand new Toyota Hilux in Nigeria costs between N24 million and N25 million, depending on the model and distributor.

Prices of Foreign Used Toyota Hilux in Nigeria

Foreign-used cars move the automobile market in Nigeria. When it comes to Toyota Hilux, there is usually no big difference between the foreign used tokunbo version and its brand-new equivalent, irrespective of the model. This has the brand’s ruggedness, easy maintenance, and durability to thank for the little difference. Also, easy accessibility and less clearance stress compared to brand new cars have encouraged Nigerians to pursue the foreign-used versions more.

The average prices of various models of foreign-used Toyota Hilux in 2018 are listed below:

  • Toyota Hilux 2005: From N7 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2007: From N11 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2008: From N11.5 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2012: From N12 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2013: From N13 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2015: From N14 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2016: From N28.5 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2017: From N34 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2018: From N35 million

It should be noted that certain factors, including the condition of the car, fuel economy rate, and currency exchange rate have caused the variations in the prices. This means that it is possible for a model, say 2012 model, to be more expensive than a later model, say 2014. The condition of the car and fuel mileage directly have a lot to do with the eventual price of the foreign-used Toyota Hilux.

Prices of Nigerian (locally) used Toyota Hilux in Nigeria

Generally, Nigerian used cars are cheaper than foreign used equivalents. Understandably so, most locally used cars have been used outside the country before being imported and then used for a long or short while before being made available for sale as “locally used”. These cars have lost some significant value and have depreciated with time. Depending on the conditions of basic parts of the car including the engine, tires, interior, and general handling, most Nigerian used cars cost between 55 percent and 70 percent of their foreign used counterparts.

It is the same with the Toyota Hilux. For its ruggedness and durability though, there is only an ignorable difference between Nigerian-used and foreign-used Hilux provided the engine and other basic parts are still in great condition.

Average prices of Nigerian-used Toyota Hilux for various models are listed below.

  • Toyota Hilux 2005: From N5.5 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2007: From N7 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2008: From N8 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2012: From N8.5 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2013: From N9 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2015: From N11.5 million
  • Toyota Hilux 2016: From N12.5 million

  • Toyota Hilux 2018: From N16 million
