Hyundai Accent/Elantra.

Am just curious why this two models have never taken off in Kenya apart from the few I usually see at the airport. But they are the best economically. Easy to maintain and very low consumption with style/comfort compared to the Toyota.

We all tend to stick to what we ‘know’. What the brain doesn’t know, the eyes don’t see.

toyota scores #1 on cheapest maintenance globally. so usianze eti ooooh wakenya walifanya... hyundai one of the worst below the likes of BMW and other luxury stuff. na usidanganyike gari hazinanga repairs kwa kwaida miaka kama tano za kwanza na mafuta inanusa tu. ngoja izeeke moving parts zianze kuisha kwa period moja zote

I associate this brand with the jalopies baba Moi received from the South Koreans in the late 90's. You barely see them on the roads these days.

Bias aside the Japanese are still number one at building an entry level, pocket friendly car.
Yes agreed. Those models Moi received were crap but Hyundai have reinvented themselves since 2010.

That's what I mean, I have seen alot of them within the middle east and its among the most affordable cars.
I had imported a 2013 Sonata sometime back, the interior was spacious, heated front and rear seats, Hyundai bluelink that utilized mobile apps to start, stop, lock, unlock the vehicle remotely, modern Hyundai's are far much superior than what hit our roads in the late 90's.

Where's the one with a turbo?
Hyundai never slept. Unlike SsangYong (guys who brought us the Musso and the Rexton). 2 characteristically shit vehicles that ever rode this planet.
Whatever happened to the numerous Musso's that littered our city? I've yet to see any be it scrap ama juu ya mawe.

They really disappeared. Around 4 months ago I saw a blue one. Beaten beaten beaten like a slave.
How it was still moving was something else.
I remember their marketing thing was "2 to 4wd at the touch of a button"...
