2011 Toyota Ractis NSP 122 1.3L petrol from Kenya
Excellent for those that don't require a high capacity vehicle
Nothing has gone wrong in my first 15,000 km.
The best ever covered on the highway was 24 km per litre on its original low profile tyres 175/60/16. On changing the tyres to 205/60/16, the highway fuel consumption dropped to 18 km per litre. Getting the 175/60/16 tyres here locally is hard unless second hand that come with car imports. I have had to re-instate the original tyres as they are still fairly new. The challenge with these tyres is the ground clearance, which is solved by 205/60/16.
Physical appearance for this car model (high roof) is very appealing and causes attention from any passerby, with some requesting to have a closer look at it.
Town service average fuel consumption ranges from 13-16 km per litre.
Its indicator does not turn off upon completion of a turn, which can be dangerous.
The seat is not well cushioned, making it not comfortable for long distance travel of 150 km non-stop.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
