Civic: too rice boyish style, supposedly good engine performance but coupled with CVT transmission.
Jetta: probably the best performance but questionable reliability and service and RV drops like a stone.
Mazda 3: seems decent, but overall exterior design proportion doesn't look good to me.
Cerato: not interested coz Korean, RV also drops like a stone.
Elantra: also Korean like above.
Altis: also seems decent, the best exterior look IMHO, maybe lacking some features of the others. I've driven this car overseas for over a week for long distances and seems not bad with great fuel consumption, but just typical boring car.
Focus: probably also rival the Jetta for performance but also questionable reliability and service, or ease of finding parts. RV also drops like a stone.
Sylphy: decent exterior but more uncle-ish look of the bunch, good comfort and leg room, the weakest power and slowest, also with CVT.

SO, if I were you I also don't know which one to choose, none really a perfect choice. Maybe only either the Mazda 3 or the Altis, the rest are no. I'd rather buy a used D-Segment actually than any of those above.

At that price point, you can get a D segment ride. I think most people would rather have the bigger car.

If i'm to choose, i'll take jetta as 1st choice, 2nd choice will be civic TCP. Prefer performance over RV or 'looks' and i tend to keep my car for years. One can always mod the exterior for 'looks' however the very heart of the car, the engine, once u 'touch' it, the reliability will go down the drain.

I know at this price point it is very near D Segment price. D Segment getting cheaper and C Segment is getting sleeker, sexier, and sportier.
B Segment Vios, CIty, Vento, Mazda 2 all price near 100k, add few k more can get base Mazda 3, Cerato 1.6, Elantra 1.6, which categorised under C Segment, and also bigger than B segment right.
But then again, not everyone want big car. You cannot compare like this. It will never end if you have thinking that "add few more k can get bigger car".
In order to sell well in each segment, they have to stand out in the crowd. That is why i start this poll to see what Malaysian prefer in the C Segment market.

Ideally I'd want RWD or AWD reliable car which are faster than those above, unfortunately no such car available in the C Segment here unless you go above rm200k or buy old used ones from the early-mid 2000.

You can get a brand new Accord for RM136k according to this ad: http://m.mudah.my/view?ca=9_3_s&cg=1015&q=...&ad_id=48417087

If it was up to me and I had to choose a car for less than RM140k, I'd buy the Accord.

If it had to be a C segment car, it would be the Mazda 3 probably. The Civic has a high centre console that hits my knee.

That's only a 2.0 d-segment though, under powered.

For the price of a high spec C-segment and add a bit more you can get the lowest spec D-segment but it will have a 2.0L engine which is underpowered and it will probably be stripped of gadgets and features.
