Toyota Raum review Kenya: How good is a Toyota Raum?
Now that you’re aware of the average Toyota Raum price in Kenya , here is what you should know about the car.
To start with, it’s an MPV (multi purpose vehicle) car from Toyota with 5 doors/seats.
The gear lever is on the dashboard and there’s more legroom than what you get from hatchbacks like Toyota Vitz.
In addition, you’ll get more storage in the spacious door pockets as well as the glove compartment.
Others useful additions include cup holders, climate control feature, airbags (front passenger & driver), foot-parking brake, and power steering.
Overall, it’s an excellent road handler (City/Urban roads) and you will enjoy maximum ride comfort thanks to its well thought-out design.
Plus, you’re guaranteed a high resale value considering it’s a Toyota.
Here is a summary of the key Toyota Raum specifications.

Toyota Raum problems
We didn’t come across too many complaints about Toyota Raum.
A few people mentioned that the 2011 model had an issue with the open door indicator warning light refusing to go off.
Other than that, it seems to be quite a dependable car for the Kenyan roads.
Then, as you would expect (it’s a Toyota, remember), spare parts are abundantly available everywhere you check.
To recap, the Toyota Raum price in Kenya is roughly between shs.380000 to shs.800000 (can rise to over shs.1M if you import a fairly new (2013) model directly).
My favorite car shopping place is the car bazaar show held at the Jamhuri showground in Nairobi every Sunday (from 8.00am).
Here you can negotiate with owners one-on-one and you can strike a deal on the spot.
Plus, they have amazing offers.
In addition, you can land a well-conditioned Raum in showrooms and myriad online market places.
As usual, conduct your due diligence ahead of buying- you don’t want to lose your hard-earned cash.
