1. Very fun to drive. I enjoy driving this car on the daily
2. Fuel Efficiency is great, about 14-15km/l on my daily drive and about 11km~/l during heavy traffic.
3. Rear legroom is pretty good.
4. Sporty exterior, aggressive to look at.
5. Engine is powerful, can easily speed up to 120km/h with no problem
6. NVH is pretty standard for a car of this price range. Its mediocre to average at best.
7. Comfortable enough for long drives.
8. Very good acceleration, put the pedal to the metal, and the car responds aggressively.
9. It's pretty good enough for a daily drive.
10. Air-cond is damn cold sia, Love it.
1. BRAKES. This is probably my biggest issue when it comes to this car, the brakes are, personally, horrible. Kickbacks during traffic, horrible during emergency braking, the brake tends to feel on the heavier side, the car responds slowly to the brake.
2. WELCOMING NOISE. Damn every time I unlock or lock the car, the welcoming noise so loud sia, it's like I'm trying to wake up the whole damn neighbourhood. Also, I hate the sound ,it sounds like a toy.
3. NVH. As I said, it's pretty standard for a car about this range, but it could be so much more better.
4. HANDLING. As fun as it is to drive the car, Handling could be miles better.
5. GEAR CHANGE. Gear change sometimes is very horrible, especially on uphill, it stays on one gear for too long before switching to another, and you have to push the throttle reasonably hard for the car to speed up.
6. SPEAKERS. Speaker quality is 50/50 could honestly be improved.
7. STORAGE SPACE. Absolutely horrible, apart from your cups, there's nothing much that can be stored in this car, not entirely an issue for me but could be an issue for someone else.
8. SAFETY. It's very basic, even for the SE model (or AV), you only get 2 airbags as standard.
9. SUSPENSION. You can honestly feel every bump, pothole, or every error in the road, it's spine shattering sometimes. :')

4. Stable while speeding around 140Km/h +
5. Front parking sensor is very useful
6. Front seats in sporty and very comfortable.
7. 4 Gears are not as bad as u expect. Acceptable RPMs in high speeds.
1. Storage is ZERO of the upper side of driver's door. I had to put everything in the middle area and yet the storage area is too limited. I had a Galaxy Mega and guess what. I don't even know where should i put in my phone.
2. The welcoming beeps while opening your car is sounds terribly awful. You buy a sporty looks car and the moment you unlock your car, it sounds like a toy.
3. Doesn't save fuel as expected. Normal driving in city area. The 1st block of the fuel will disappeared after travel for just 5x KM.
4. The steering wheel adjustment is VERY limited. I am 172CM height and i had to adjust my driving seats very near to the steering wheel. My right hand is very tired for long distance (Ipoh to KL) yeah. U will definitely need an add-on armrest.
1. Storage area
2. Steering wheel adjustment

sangat praktikal..dashboard dan dalaman yang kemas..enjin yang senyap..stereng ringan ketika nak parking..byr ciri2 yang mesra penguna..
bunyi tayar sangat kuat(poor nvh) menceroboh ke dalam firewall..ada bunyi pelik kt bonet(perodua kuantan dah setel kan yg kt temerloh hampeh)..kerusi tak orgonamik..speaker bunyi x sedap..4speed rasa mcm x ckup gear..tak terlalu menjimatkan petrol..pikap agak lemah bg keta kecil yg berenjin 1.5
1. Sporty and funky exterior appearance.
2. Improved build quality
3. Rattle-free after 3 months ownership and 4500 km on the clock.
4. Additional storage compartment below driver's side air-cond vent.
5. Rear-view camera is a gem !
6. Easy maneuverability in tight spaces.
1. The steering wheel is placed too near to the dashboard and lacks telescopic adjustment. I am 5'11" and
find it very difficult to adjust the steering wheel to a comfortable position as I will need to adjust the driver's
seat much closed to the dashboard/steering wheel so that both my arms are bent slightly and my legs are
not bent too much when reaching the brake and accelerator pedals.
2. Fuel consumption is not as good as expected.
3. The pick up capability of the 1.5L engine is not impressive for such a small car.
4. The driver's seat is too high and there should be additional adjustment leverage to lower the seat further.
Otherwise the seating position is too high and similar to the feel of driving a commercial van !!
5. The OEM speakers are of very poor quality
6. Only 2 SRS air-bags for the top-of-the-range model
7. Lack of electronic stability control and/or traction control features as standard on the Advance model.
8. The backlit conventional instrument panel on the facelift Advance model is really crap. I would have very much preferred the old pre-facelift Optitron instrument panel which is brighter and easier to read at a glance. I am wondering who's idea it is to downgrade the Optitron panel to this awful backlit panel in the facelift version. It was a wrong decision and P2 should have kept the old Optitron panel as is.
1. Telescopic steering adjustment is a MUST !
2. Rim + tyre size for the 1.5 Advance should be at least 15" with 195/55/R15 tyres
3. Better quality speakers
4. Lower seating position for the driver's seat
5. The flagship 1.5L Advance model should come fitted with at least 4 air bags and traction control as
-Value for money.

- fuel efficient driving in the city
- good airconditioner
- no body kit like the previous version
- the headlamps on the previous version are better
- not efficient to drive in the highway. fuel burn is about the same as my Civic 1.8
- white interior makes it get dirty fast
