The Review

A solid built car with Fuel saving in mind. Can out run a honda civic 1.6 auto anytime, acceleration is 10.2 sec to 100km/h. Spacious and comfortable. One of my FAV car, waited 4 months for it and never once regretted it eventhough it cost so much more than a civic. Compared it to a civic hybrid, it thumps it hands down. Civic hybird is not a full hybrid as it cannot run without the gasoline engine while the prius can and can run in stealth mode. It is so quiet in EV mode that when parking your car please be extra careful. Parking is always in EV mode never use gasoline engine at all. Driving a prius is easy and effortless. Starting it is like powering a PC. There are many gadgets found for prius that can put many other drivers in envy. It is just about how much money u willing to burn to bring them to SG. A great family car that can sit 4 passenger comfortably and even can put in a adult bicycle if only one rear passenger is in the car. Toyota sure has a winner in this one. Stop buying useless non-hybrid car, future is here with Prius!

Strengths

Quiet, Comfortable and spacious. A futuristic dashboard and good quality plastics all round. Many small compartments for use and big boot to place your barang barang. Very good FUEL ECONOMY at least 20KM/L. A fun way to drive in EV mode and a display to show you all needed information. A Fantastic car!

Weaknesses

I have added auto folding mirror, auto tilting mirror, Night Safety mirror and many other items for PRIUS 2008. Cost me a bomb! Is well worth it. Also change default radio to similar one with wma/mp3 function and included DVD playing capability in the MFD and rear view camera. Fully packed Prius! Basic Model- None of the above mentioned. Even as a basic model it has no weakness just less creature comfort.

Safety, Power, Quiet and fuel efficient

The Review

Safety: Feel piece of mind with the state of the art VDIM that combined traction control, ABS, EDB, stability control and electronic steering assist. 9 airbags Power: Very smooth delivery of power on entire speed range. When hybrid battery is sufficiently charged, the hippo can out run the Hyundai taxi at traffic light. Quiet: Not exactly like luxury car, but with engine cut when stationary, its quite an experience.

NICE SOLID AND RESPONSIVE CAR

The Review

Even though this car is engineered to be a leader in its class, in hind sight, i think i make a mistake buying this car. After all when you are driving, should feel comfortable. I keep moving around trying to get comfortable, its been over 3 months and started to give back pains which previous cars had not. Any one else experience this on the corolla altis?

Strengths

Solid and stable, with great suspension and brakes. Nice quiet engine. Great sound proofing, best have come across in a car at this price range.

Weaknesses

Horrible drivers seat. Small and very narrow, after few minutes of driving one gets uncomfortable and fidgety, even with aircon on seat gets hot hence feels very comforable.

My last car driven was a corolla xl, same problem seat not comfortable, too short for the lower bum & thigh. Sold already after 2 years. Suggest to change a better seat after market seats, many models to choose from. You can keep the previous Altis seat in the event of selling this car. asdzds
