I am hitting a min of 12.8km/litre to 16+km/litre; depending on how my driving pattern. It has a typical Jap finishing for the interior. Nice handsfree (keyless) technology for a medium car. You can open the door with you hands full with bags or luggage so long your car key is on your pocket. Exterior looks abit off as does not look sporty enough. Be careful when you are driving at high speed (>100km), it will kind of wopple when a huge coach or truck overtake you.
Fuel consumption. Nice interior. Lots of leg space.
Had being driving for half a year. FC is comparable to Vios. But had great leg & head room, my family had no complaint ever since I change to Latio (previously Vios & Impreza). But the greatest surprise is its road handling especially during corners, it is much better than Vios.
Love the keyless entry & engine ingition, once you try it and you will appreciate the convenient.
Good FC, comfort, quiet ride, good road handling, lots of gadgets (keyless entry etc)
Similar cars tried:
Volvo S60, Jaguar XJ, Toyota Altis, Mazda6, Hyundai Avante

Nice car at the right price. Beats Honda City, Mazda6, Avante and also the Altis. I'd say maybe even better ride than the Jaguar which I've also drove in the past.
BUT...the looks is not quite it. But who cares...especially if you've already hitched your gal. :)
For that kind of money, I'd say Latio features beat all the previous cars I've driven. Its surprisingly stable and very comfy inside. The sound system coupled with the sound proofing in the interior gives you a loungey kind of feeling.
Well, exterior's not very impressive, its more a family car than a guy show-off kind of car. But my gf likes it...:). Another improvemet they can make is the console, a little dull with the black buttons.
The Latio is my first car but it trumps most of the rides I test drove and borrowed from friends. If not for it's competitive pricing, I would have gone for the Jazz but Honda prices are way too ex for a hatchback. For someone who wants fuel economy and comfortability and doesn't want to save on the interior, this car is it. Leather seats are mighty comfortable and there's plenty of room to move around in. You definitely won't feel cramped inside this baby!
On the highway, the Latio is capable of handling 120km/h and still stable but watch out for those turns out into the slip roads as the CG is pretty high due to the car's height. With year long reports about cars flippin over, you might wanna re-consider if you're into cornering at high speeds.
It's beauty also shines in the workmanship, Japan made, quiet engine, excellent sound insulation, cruising is a pleasure with this car.
It's really good and I wouldn't downplay Tan Chung Motors service if you're going there to get one.
Comfortable ride with plenty of leg and head room
Great fuel economy even for the Auto version
Cheap for a family car
High CG for a sedan
Could do with a few more technical extras in the non premium version
Brakes could be more responsive
