The impact of the Toyota Vitz in Kenya has been tremendous and it's not a far stretch to credit it with the widespread acceptance of sub-compacts in the past decade. There were others before such as the VW Polo and the Toyota Starlet but they never gained the same success as the Vitz. It's comfortable, affordable to buy and fuel efficient which are factors that greatly influenced people's perceptions of the small car. It competes with the Honda Fit, Mazda Demio, Nissan March, VW Polo and Suzuki Swift.

Lexus is pushing the boundaries of luxury with the NX and it's sparing no effort in its first attempt at the lucrative compact SUV category which it neglected in folly to chase the now declining full-sized category. The NX is fielding some of the latest technologies and finest accessories in the Lexus stable and this gamble is paying off big time going by latest sales numbers. It's directly competing with established luxury brands such as the BMW X3, Mercedes Benz GLC, Audi Q3, VW Tiguan and the Range Rover Evoque. It also competes to a lesser extent with the Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, Subaru Forester, Toyota Rav-4, Honda CR-V, and Mitsubishi Outlander.

The Nissan Serena is a mixed bag of things. On paper, it ticks all the right boxes such as space, economy, utility and affordability but in reality it underwhelms in power delivery and heavy lifting. People who buy it usually intend to put it through hard work and less of leisure but it appears the Serena excels in the latter. Additionally, it plays in a neighborhood dominated by proven workhorses such as the Toyota Noah, Toyota Voxy, Mitsubishi Delica D:5 and Mazda Biante. However, not all is lost, the Nissan Serena hides a clever punch in its class leading fuel efficiency which can drive long term benefits for the owner.
