By Baraza JM More by this Author Baraza,I am an ardent reader of your column and have benefited from the articles once in a while. I intend to venture into the transport (matatu) business in the very near future. I would like to buy an 11-seater shuttle that will cover a distance of approximately 500 kilometres daily on a good and smooth road by all standards. I am torn between the popular Toyota HiAce van (box) and the newly introduced Nissan NV350. Both vehicles are almost similar in look, size and capacity, both the diesel and petrol versions. My questions are:1:Between the two engine variants, which one is more reliable as far as power, efficiency and reliability are concerned? Toyota HiAce comes with a 2KD engine for petrol 2000cc and diesel 2500cc and 3000cc versions while Nissan comes with a QR20 engine (petrol model 2000cc) and YD25 engine (diesel model 2500cc).2: Between the diesel and petrol version, which is better considering the number of kilometres to be covered and the … [Read more...] about The Toyota HiAce or Nissan NV 350, which would be best the matatu?
And it's way cheaper than the Land Cruiser in the U.S. With a starting price of $85,315, the Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the most expensive new Toyotas in the United States money can buy today. The Heritage Edition is even more expensive at $87,645. Despite that, it’s still one of the most capable off-roaders on the market and, while the sales are not that great with just 3,235 units delivered last year, the good news is the model will stick around in America for at least a few more years. That’s the situation with the Land Cruiser in the United States but it’s vastly different in, say, South Africa. There, you can now order the new Land Cruiser 79 4.5D V8 D/C Namib, which we’ll simply call the Land Cruiser Namib. It’s a special edition model, based on the retro-styled 70 Series with a starting price of 893,600 South African Rand, which equals to approximately $61,000 at the current exchange rates.

Previous Next 1 of 6 The Toyota Camry is incredibly popular with carbuyers (as well as Uber drivers), but for many shoppers, the ubiquitous midsize sedan is missing one thing — all-wheel drive. That’s about to change. Toyota is adding all-wheel drive to the Camry, as well as the larger Avalon sedan. The all-wheel drive Camry goes on sale in spring 2020 as a 2020 model, with the Avalon following in fall 2020 as a 2021 model. Why is all-wheel drive such a big deal? It will give the Camry and Avalon, which are currently available only with front-wheel drive, more traction on slippery surfaces. That’s a big selling point in parts of country that experience severe winters, and one of the main reasons why buyers are abandoning sedans in favor of crossovers. Customers have been clamoring for all-wheel drive, Toyota claims. Toyota previously offered an all-wheel drive Camry from 1988 to 1991. Since that model was dropped, customers and dealers have sent … [Read more...] about With newly added AWD, Toyota’s Camry and Avalon are ready to battle winter
