Earning less than Sh 80,000 per month in Kenya categorically classifies you as a middle class.

As such, there are specific cars that would suit you based on your monthly remuneration.

If you’re thinking the likes of Mercedes Benz, Lamborghini, Buggati’s among other luxurious rides, it’s totally okay. However, as much as your dreams are valid, it’s time you wake up from slumber and start thinking towards the direction of models such as Toyotas, Nissans, and Subarus.

Wanting a car while earning this kind of salary, means you’re on a budget whether you like it or not.

Therefore, going for a car that consumes less fuel would be one of the smartest things to do in this scenario.

Most fuel-efficient cars fall in the category of brands like Toyotas, Hondas, and Nissans.

For instance, a Toyota Vitz is not only affordable but also reliable, efficient, and consumes less fuel. A Mazda Demio or Toyota Passo can also be good alternatives if Vitz isn’t your cup of tea.

Besides, falling in this salary bracket means getting a car whose spare parts are easily available so you won’t have to spend a lot of money shipping them from abroad.

Having a common brand like a Toyota will be easy for you simply because their spare parts are not only locally and easily available, but they’re also very cheap.

Going for a cheaper and a common brand will also save you money in terms of insurance, since the higher the price the expensive the car insurance.
