Toyota Kenya on 6th November launched the all-new Toyota Starlet in the Kenyan market, bringing everything one would expect from a compact hatchback – an ideal size to drive everywhere with agility selling – at Ksh1,980,000.
Toyota Starlet lands in Kenya with a wide and low silhouette that offers more stability at high speed with high ground clearance. For those worried about how the car can maneuver agile turns, it comes with a turning radius of 4.9m to help turn even in congested places.
The exterior comes with increased safety with dynamically designed outside rear-view mirrors with integrated indicators. The headlamps give more visibility.
“The primal thought for the planning and the creation of this new model was to produce a car that conforms to what customers expect. This is why Toyota Starlet designed to meet the increased demand for high-economy vehicles with exceptional driving characteristics in the common size of 1000 to 1600cc,” said Toyota Kenya Managing Director Arvinder Reel.
The new Toyota Starlet has a classy dashboard. The steering wheel is adjustable with a 190 mm front legroom that gives good driving position. The rear row of seats folds down with no effort leaving plenty of room for a large load, as well as giving space for passengers who also get to enjoy a legroom of 200 mm.
The vehicle comes with a 1.4-litre petrol engine that delivers both power and fuel efficiency. The intake VVT, cylinder head, and piston crowns are designed to boost thermal efficiency and fuel economy. Buyers also get a three-year-warranty on the Toyota Starlet.
