General Comments:

After the Toyota Crown, my parents wanted something small round town and easy to manoeuvre, and this ticked all the boxes.

Easy to get in and out, excellent fuel economy, very reliable, being a Corolla really (same engine), very comfy seats, rear seat also tilts and goes backward and forward like the front seat, lots of cabin space and very smooth. Also the folding rear seat offers huge space for carrying items. Driving sitting position is exceptionally great for a car of this year.

We have done few long road trips and was very convinced with the overall performance. It's not a Ferrari of course, but it's great value for money.

For Asian countries where you spend lot of time in the traffic - this offers enough breathing room, and if you have TV or DVD installed, as a passenger you are sorted (mostly driven by drivers in those countries).

I would highly recommend this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
