Factors affecting car Prices in Kenya

When shopping for a car, you will note that the prices will vary, this is because the price of the vehicle will be affected by various factors, below is a look at the different things that will affect how much you pay for the vehicle.

  • Model year- most cars have a new model released each year, most of the time, a new model will come with new features, additionally, a new car is obviously in better condition. As a result, newer car models come at a higher price than the older models.
  • Trim levels- There are different trim levels for every model year, the higher the trim level, the more features you get. This leads to price differences, if you have a low budget, you will get a base trim but for a high budget, you can go for the highest trim level.
  • Features differences- cars will be on the same trims levels but still have different features, for example, one might be a 2WD and the other a 4WD. In Kenya, most people prefer 2WD for sedans and hatchbacks, this means the prices of 2WD cars will be higher because of higher demand. On the other hand, 4WD/AWD crossover SUVs and SUVs are loved, this means 2WD in this category have less demand hence lower prices.
  • Condition of the car- here, prices change depending on whether the car is brand new, foreign used or locally used. Additionally, a used car that is in a clean condition will not come at a similar price as one that is not well-maintained.
  • Market conditions- different market conditions lead to changes in the prices of vehicles, for example, if the global supply chains are interrupted, car prices are likely to go up.
  • The seller- each seller will quote their own prices depending on different things including how much they bought the vehicle and the amount of profit they want to make. It is hence common to get different price tags from different sellers.
