Tough question

Elantra will be slightly cheaper n have better interest rate. Non uber car and can buy parts to enhance the appearance easily

Why not consider altis? Lots of toyota owner says korean car is lpusy

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.

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.

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?

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.

U need to find out how much Komoco bid for them since coe for the past 2 biddings is below 43k. Unless coming coe stay that way. U may ask to top up once coe go above 45k
