I purchased my Picanto from the first batch that was imported into Malaysia. I like the design and was told by the salesman who claimed that this is a very economical car in terms of fuel consumption.
However, this was not the case. You could only achieve about 10 kilometer per liter.
I am in the opinion that the manufacture had given false information / advertisement on its alleged fuel economy.
I have also seen some write-ups before that claim the car could do 600 - 700 kilometers on a full tank!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
