The Review

I've actually enjoyed driving my Vios. It is a good vehicle for travelling from Pt A to B. Despite my grouses, it has served me well on trips to Ikea and bringing friends and family about. It is fairly comfortable for a small family 2 adults, 2 kids (young). You could put two avg sized strollers in the boot or a grandparent's wheelchair. It can also sprint (i'm using an Auto) if you time your acceleration right. Perhaps one can do more with a Manual transmission. I think there is a Turbo version but not available in Singapore.

Strengths

Keeping Acceleration below 3000rpm allows for fuel economy of avg 13+km/litre. In the 1st year, FC was above 14km/litre. Large Boot/Trunk space.

Weaknesses

lack of cabin space. Although i managed to squeeze 7 pax including driver for a short trip from toa payoh to newton, having 5 adults in the car may already fill up the space. not much leg-room for the rear passengers. Also, Rear Seats cannot be put down.

The Review

Very good car for a family looking for a budget sedan. Highly recommended.

Strengths

Good performance, relatively good pick up and decent space. Good and effective brakes, slight tab and you can feel the car is slowing down. Surprisingly it is quite stable on cornering on stock tires.

Weaknesses

Sound of engine is not exciting, infact rather boring...it doesn't make you want to go on high rev.
Need some time to get used to the centre console...

The Review

A car not really meant for comfort but more for people with limited budget and loves to Run.

Strengths

It has much better pick up compared to all the cars that I've tried due to its light weight and very responsive engine.
I floor my accelerator very regularly to 6,000 Rpm because I simply like the draw back feeling at 3,200 RPM.
Its very addictive but over a period of time, I crave for a more powerful ride to give me more adrenaline rush.

Weaknesses

The interior feels very much "PLASTIC" compared to others especially the Mazda 3 with absolutely superb interior. Weighs quite light and may not appeal to some.

Suspension and handbrake not very good.

I'm 1.8m tall and has long legs which in turn causes my rear passengers to have minimal leg room. Not very spacious to me. Space wise, the Honda City would be a better choice.

Many people do not like the speedometer to be in the middle
but that is something that 1 can get used to easily.

Reving above 3,000 Rpm and the engine sounds kinda noisy.
