The Toyota Isis is a practical and convenient car at the same time. It features wide-opening panoramic doors that make it very easy to get on and off.

The in-line 4-cylinder engine gives you more than enough power for your daily rides, even if you have a full load, while still keeping fuel efficiency in mind.

The transmission comes in two options, the Automatic Transmission and CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).

All models manufactured after September, 2009 are in CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is designed to also give you more fuel economy.

Buying a Toyota Isis from a Ugandan car bond

Just in case you opt to buy Toyota Isis from the a car bond in and around Kampala, then things could be a little bit more simpler for you because you will not have to face all the lengthy processes and journeys to the port to own the car.

Here most of the work has already been done for you. Most taxes have been cleared. All you have to do is simply pay for the car from the car bond and drive home.

However, you can also find that some cars have only cleared the CIF fees only. So it would mean that if you want a Toyota Isis then you will have to clear the rest of the taxes.

You can find the CIF of the Toyota Isis (that is from Japan to Kampala) to be around $ 2,000. However, the cost of the CIF can change due to year of manufacture, condition of the car, mileage and the dealer. In general, Toyota Isis can cost you around UGX 19,000,000.

Importing a foreign used Toyota Isis from Japan

Importing a foreign used Toyota Isis from Japan is different from buying from car from the car bond here in Kampala. Some people prefer to import their own cars directly from Japan.

This means all the costs are going to be met by you the owner of the car right from say Japan to Mombasa up to Uganda. Here one needs to determine the cost of the car while still in Japan from which the Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) are calculated.

After that, arrangements are made to ship the car to Kampala, Uganda. After arriving in Kampala, then the required taxes have to be cleared. The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees. When all this is done, then you are free to drive home in your new Toyota Isis.

My Verdict about this Car in Uganda

The Isis looks much more spacious then the WISH and it has a sliding door.

The Isis also does not have the 'B' pillar making the car more spacious.

These features alone give it thumbs up.
