Which are the best fuel efficient cars in Kenya?
Many Kenyans aim for cars that consume fuel that is within their budget, which is the reason car importers go for low fuel efficient cars. But as much as there are many small cars on our roads, some may not meet the requirements of potential car owners. It’s for this reason we list fuel efficient cars in Kenya to help those in need of personal cars to make sound decisions.
The daily budget for most Kenyans on fuel is Ksh 300-Ksh1, 000, which is reasonable considering we are a third world country. With this budget, the following cars would suite your spending target.
- Toyota Vitz
Toyota Vitz is a fairly small car but its performance on the road is superb. The car has extremely comfortable interior with adjustable seats. The best thing about this car is that fuel consumption is not a headache for the owner. In a day,it will consume between Ksh 150 to Ksh 300 if you are driving within Nairobi and a maximum of Ksh 3,000 if you are travelling from Nairobi to upcountry.
- Toyota Axio
Most Kenyans have found comfort in Toyota Axio.This car is surprisingly one of the best fuel consumption cars in Kenya. Besides being rated among the best family cars in the country, it also ranks among the best fuel consumption cars. In a day, it consumes not more than Ksh 400 if you are driving it within Nairobi.
- Mazda Demio
I personally owned a Mazda Demio,a small car but with amazing comfort and speed.Mazda Demio served me well, especially when I was driving to work.In a day,I would go to a petrol station and say,”niwekee ya shilingi 300 “.The pump attendants knew how efficient the car was, thus the spending.
- Toyota Probox
Toyota Probox is a multipurpose car, it can be used to ferry passengers, luggage and also be used to work.The reason why many Kenyans prefer a Probox is because it’s has superb speed and is one of the most fuel efficient car of all times.
When you use a Probox as a Matatu,you are sure fuel does not take an eighth of your daily collections-most Matatus spend up to half of their collections on fuel.
In a day and within a town a Probox will consume Ksh 250 to Ksh 700 depending on the number of trips the driver makes.
- Nissan Tiida
Nissan Tiida is another car you would not overlook. The small car, first manufactured in Japan in 2004, has become a household name as many people import it due to its fuel efficient nature.
As the owner of Nissan Tiida, you won’t worry even a minute over the amount of fuel the car consumes since Ksh 200-Ksh700 is enough for a day.

Nissan Note also sneaks in to make it to top 10 best fuel consumption cars in Kenya. It’s not a surprise that this car is in this list-many Kenyans, especially women, have always recommended to their friend to buy a Tiida simply because it’s pocket friendly. Are you able to spend Ksh 200-Ksh400 daily on fuel? Then go for this car.

Why do you think many Kenyans are importing Toyota Allion in droves? It’s because fuel consumption won’t be a big deal.
Like Toyota Axio,Allion is comfortable and much suitable for big families, yet it’s fuel efficient.

Nissan March consumes between Ksh 150 to Ksh 500 within in Nairobi, whether there is traffic jam or not.
The car is designed to accommodate few people and to carry less luggage but it’s extremely comfortable.
