KEAN
1.2 EX AT (2018)
Bought new, Owned less than 1 year
Fuel Economy: 13.0 km/litre (7.7 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 300 km/month
    1) Equipped with 7 inch floating infotainment system with reverse camera and Android Auto.
    2) Quality speaker output and bass and radio signal receiving is good.
    3) Good ride and handling, able to absorb road bump and less feel when car run over uneven road.
    4) Nicely wrap steering, look premium and comfortable to hold at this price point.
    5) Above average interior built quality and good plastic material use although not soft touch but doesn't look cheap.
    6) Nice looking exterior especially the front with Projector headlamp and DRL and U shape position lamp, and LED signal. Kia improve on DRL when handbrake engaged DRL turn off, this increase privacy when parking in Mall and trying to rest in Car.
    7) First in class safety features for car at this price point: 6 airbag, 4disc brake, VSM, 5 ELR type seatbelt with 5 seatbelt fasten reminder to name a few.
    8) Good NVH suppression
    1) No leather seat, consider Axia and Myvi have it at about the same price point.
    2) No built in touch and go reader, which I think is very practical and convenience (Myvi have it).
    3) No front parking sensor (at least two at right and left side)
    4) Rear legroom is critical, it is a tight affair for passenger above 175cm, with front passenger also around 175cm.
    5) FC not as good as expected compare to Axia or Bezza maybe due to heavier body weight (increase 44% AHSS), but still within acceptable range.
    6) Black and white infotainment display is boring.
To Improve
1) Use colour infotainment display
2) Improve rear design, make the exhaust pipe visible.
3) Add on rear passenger bottle holder at both rear doors.
4) Can add on leather seat as option.
5) Can built in touch and go reader.
6) Can add front parking sensor
Yes, I would recommend this car
