This is a 5-door compact multipurpose car that was first featured in the market around 1997. It features 3 generations and the first one runs from 1997 to 2001. The second generation that by far outsold a number of other vehicles was first released around 2001 with its last production coming in 2007. The 3rd one came between 2004 and 2009 and it’s still less visible in the Kenyan market perhaps because it was built for the US and European markets. The vehicle has kept its competitive resale value given its economic fuel consumption and relatively high ground clearance unlike the other vehicle of the same model.
For many years, the Toyota Vitz has been one of the perfect and famous car options for young and corporate travelers in Kenya.

For over 17 years now the Rav4 has kept a unique familiarity among holidaymakers in Kenya, it doesn’t offer that comfort like other SUVs of its kind.

This model provides a cargo room, higher visibility, and the option of full-time four-wheel drive together with a relatively high level of fuel economy.
