It compiled a report based on its hijacking and crime statistics and VW came out on top as the most hijacked vehicle brand in the country followed by Toyota, Ford, Citroen and Kia.
The five most hijacked cars in South Africa tell a slightly different story though - the VW Polo, Toyota Hilux and other Toyota models, Ford Ranger, BMW X5 and the humble Chevrolet Spark.
The models are selected based on their demand in the market and the prospect of valuable items in vehicles, says Ctrack.
Motorists are urged to be alert and aware when pulling into or out of their driveways.
“Being aware of your surroundings and knowing how to respond if you find yourself in a hijacking situation is critical,” said Charnel Hattingh, spokesperson for Fidelity ADT.
“The first and golden rule is to not antagonise the hijackers, who are probably more scared than you are. You need to show them you are not a threat.
“Lift up your arms to show you have no weapon and will surrender. Use your left arm to undo your seatbelt and put your car in neutral. Do not turn off your car, but get out slowly. Try and angle your body sideways so you are not facing a firearm head-on.”
You should also try to avoid direct eye contact with the hijackers, but try to take in what they are wearing, saying and the sound of their voices.
“Most importantly, try to remain calm.”
