i tried approaching one PI for sienta and he started to tell me its not worth la bla bla bla and recommended me vezel hybrid instead.

nowadays alot of sientas mostly is all PHV, isit really not worth considering at all for this car?
My friend told me Borneo motors has discon Sienta.

lol.

if those jap cars peeps can commend korean cars is lousy den its quite a big joke i find.

frequency of korean cars breaking down on the road compared to jap cars is quite on par and korean cars maintenance is a breeze, pop in to any workshop and most of them can handle.

buy car is for your own purposes, not to worry how others look at chiu.. no need worry so much.
What is worse, jap brand but thai made cars suaning korean cars cmi

You need consider the yearly depreciation plus all the associated costs like maintenance, insurance, interest rates, compulsory trade in discounts etc

Elantra ftw

You can save further by sourcing for your own insurance without penalty

They also offer 1 of the better interest rates out there.

Someone just got the elantra s model for 87k.

Between the 2. I will choose the elantra. Elantra model is newer where it launched in 2016, no uber grab.

If u really isn't mind to deal with PI. U can get a few Japanese model such as Honda shuttle, grace and sienta for 90k to 93k range. Unfortunately both cars are used by uber and grab. But they are quite fuel efficient.
No uber/grab but I saw an elantra yellow top cab at balestier jus 2 weeks back with "Elantra" logo at the boot area. Comparing to grab/uber isnt it more worst?

K3 also gotten facelift in 2016.

Both cars are good and pricing for both are competitive. elantra rear seat is smaller than k3 by abit.

Go test drive and feel which car is better.

The yellow elantra u seen should be the previous gen which was launched in 2011. The current elantra that we mentioned is not used by cab as what I know. However the current blue comfort delgro cab i40 front does look like the current elantra

Ahh icic.. yes agreed current i40 looks like current model.

To be honest, if TS wana get the highest variant. I feel he shld go for K3 sports sx instead of elantra elite coz I read that some features are removed from elite.

For features and base model, definitely elantra is the better choice.
Oh and it's good to filter out some information posted here because some joker like to go around saying k3 got a crappy acceleration due to heavy body, comparing k3/elantra/lancer.


Haha bro,I m one of them.
I m driving a 08 Caren.
Test drive k3 and elantra on the same day.
I did feel that k3 acceleration is not as good as elantra even in sport mode all the way during the test drive.I told the Kia SE and he said because I driving a 2L car,so definitely feel 1.6 under power? I also feel that elantra sound proof a bit better than k3.But of cos interior wise k3 looks and feels better.
