Today, the number of Hyundai and KIA cars produced in Korea is increasing day by day on the roads in Rwanda, especially in Kigali City, and some are starting to see that these vehicles will soon be among the cars owned by many people in Rwanda.
One of the highlights of the dominance on the Rwandan market is the fact that when you arrive at MAGERWA you immediately find Hyundai and KIA vehicles conquer 65% of all parked cars waiting to be certified.
To find out what is behind the popularity of these cars, TOPAFRICANEWS spoke to the Management of SAFE TRAVEL MOTORS LTD which imports and sells these cars and here are 5 reasons why these cars are so popular and liked by many people on the Rwandan market.
It is usually difficult in Rwanda to find a car that was made after 2005 that costs less than ten thousand USD (10,000USD) on the international market before adding taxes.
Only these Hyundai and KIA vehicles, many of which are imported into Rwanda, are likely to be manufactured later 2005 and yet are being bought for less than the ones mentioned above.
For example, a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe car with 7 seats is available on the Rwanda market for 6,300 USD tax exclusive.
This means that it is a car that one can find depending financial means, a car made in 2010 can cost you five million Rwandan francs (5,000,000RWF), including taxes.
- Fuel Consumption
Often when we talk about what a car is using, we immediately hear the fuel levels it uses compared to the distance traveled. These Hyundai car dealers and some of their users say that they are unique that they consume less fuel compared to other car types in Rwanda.
- The structure
Many of the owners of these vehicles say that they are mainly attracted by their physical appearance and inside appearance, including the fact that they are so large that the occupants are more comfortable compared to other types of vehicles in the same category. What’s more, these Hyundai and KIA cars are respectable cars from the rear and you can even get inside and see that they look so good that everyone would enjoy driving them.
- They are strong
One of the most important things to consider when looking for a car is to look at its experience or strength.
Hyundai and KIA as vehicles are very durable and can travel on different roads whether dirty or clean.
- Spare parts
About five years ago, when you were telling someone that you were going to buy a Hyundai or KIA car, you would find that it was very far-fetched, because one felt like it was a car that would turn you into a burden rather than a solution.
The main reason for this was that finding the replacement parts for these cars was very difficult. Not only is this equipment still not a problem at all because the vendors of these vehicles in Rwanda not only bring them but also bring with the spare parts so that you are comfortable with everything near you.
