Kenya 2010: Corolla likely leader

Toyota owns the Kenyan car market with at least 1 in every 2 cars a former generation of Corolla, Camry, Yaris, RAV4 or Land Cruiser. Among other brands only the Nissan Sunny can claim a similar influence of the motoring landscape.

New cars are still very rare in the streets of Nairobi but given the country’s sales background, in all likeliness the Toyota Corolla should lead the Kenyan sales in 2010, ahead of the Yaris and RAV4. Other successful models are the Mitsubishi L200, Nissan 1 Ton pick-up (aka Frontier old gen), Isuzu KB (aka D-Max), Subaru Forester, Suzuki Grand Vitara and VW Passat.

Below are a couple of YouTube videos of the streets of Nairobi that help better understand the structure of the Kenyan car market.

This speculation is based on the observation of Kenyan roads through YouTube videos. Please get in touch if you have more information.
