The Toyota Premio is an all-time favorite amongst Kenyans who love it for its style, comfort and low maintenance costs. It is comparable in size to the Audi A4, Subaru Legacy Saloon, Mercedes C180, and the BMW 318i. The Toyota Premio is arguably the cheapest among these but it maintains a decent level of class and top notch reliability.

The Mitsubishi Pajero has had a long and illustrious tenure in the 4x4 club spanning 37 years in which there have been only four major changes. This is not only a demonstration of its timeless appeal but also its ability to thrive in the ever changing automotive landscape. In Kenya, it reigned supreme in the 80s and 90s before it was dethroned by the Toyota Prado. Other competitors include the Land Rover Discovery, the Ford Everest and the Nissan Pathfinder.

The Suzuki Swift has been in production since 2004 but has somehow gone unnoticed in the Kenyan market. This is largely due to the stranglehold that Toyota has had on this market which has for a long time suppressed competition. Now the stranglehold is whittling and people are beginning to notice other alternatives such as the Suzuki Swift. It competes with the Toyota Passo, Nissan March, Mazda Verisa and Mini Cooper.

Hybrid cars have slowly been creeping upon us and we are at a point where we must either embrace them or run out of options. Without question, the future belongs to hybrids and electric cars so the sooner we accept them, the better for us. The Honda Insight is one such hybrid that has slowly been gaining traction in the Kenyan market. Its closest competitor is the Toyota Prius which is arguably the first hybrid to strut this market.

Many of us will recall a time when the Nissan Bluebird and the Nissan Sunny ruled the roads, that was back in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. They have now been relegated to history but they were the precursors to the modern day economy cars and much of what they stood for has become the industry standard. They were the forebears to the Nissan Sylphy which inherited the emblems and the standard. The Nissan Sylphy competes with the Toyota Axio, Toyota Allion and Mitsubishi Lancer.

The dearth of reliability for the Nissan brand has been its main undoing. Many stories abound of Nissan Fuga's less than stellar body construction and how it doesn’t hold up too well against the test of time.

We therefore scoped out the Nissan Fuga to find out whether it holds a candle to its competitors such as the Toyota Mark X and the lofty German brands such as the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series, and the Mercedes C Class. Read on to find out.
