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.

Civic TcP spec on paper really tempting but I think I have to go NA route for daily drive. Am having quite an interest on a version 10 wrx too so nice spec hp and awd but I think I have to wait my money went pass the 2.5m mark.

Yes, the one advertised is the VTI which is the base model. I wouldn't want to buy that but I'm 6ft 2" so size matter to me. I don't think anyone could sit behind me in a C segment car. Maybe the Sylphy?

In 2011 I decided to buy an Altis. I took it for a test drive and then test drove a few others. I was waiting for a test drive of the Civic Hybrid and expected to buy it when the government changed the tax rules and Honda pulled the Civic Hybrid.

I ended up buying an Accord VTi-L. I don't find it underpowered but it's no sports car. It does 0-100 in 10 seconds which is enough for me but I do sometimes day dream about buying a hot hatch.

RWD or AWD does not necessarily mean faster, especially not at the segment you're looking at. Even BMW/Merc shifting towards FWD gradually.
If this is what you want you'll have to look into a used Subaru or Mitsu or 3 series.
I own a Focus with the older 2.0 engine. Feels good, handling better than all listed except maybe the new Civic and Mazda. Currently under full service warranty but parts cost a bomb. RV will not be good but I plan to keep it a long time. Mazda engine means cheaper parts there, but everything is expensive now with Ecoboost.

I agree with other forummer, if you want speed then get Preve. Safety is good and always see them bantai corner like GTR.

Yes I know AWD/RWD don't mean faster. I want AWD/RWD due to the different handling behavior as I'm already very bored with FWD cars. Faster means around 300hp/350nm power level. So yeah only used Evos and STIs fit the bill, others don't even come close.

Preve can bantai corner like GTR??? I suppose the Lotus handling thing is real ya? Or like GTR on a leisurely drive la I think. laugh.gif

If you're gonna own a GT86/BRZ, ain't no way you're gonna fit anybody back there besides kids laugh.gif which means more luggage space wink.gif and yeah, with 120k can buy a maybe 2014 unit, spend the extra 20k on brakes, coilovers, FI, exhaust, and intake. Then when the time comes, forged internals and crank up the boost drool.gif

If I need to carry the elderly people, I would avoid the Civic at all cost. Rear seats are mounted too low. Very torturing for the elderly to get in and out of the car. I would go for a CX-5 as my first choice instead although this is not a sedan. For sedan, maybe can consider the Altis as it is comfortable although I don't like the CVT whine when I push it uphill. NA engine need revs, cant do anything abt that.

If it is for myself and no passenger consideration, I will choose the Civic 1.5L TCP. It has sufficient power although I prefer the more futuristic CRZ instrument cluster instead. For carrying luggage though, I hate the metal bar behind the rear seat. I would rather sacrifice some stability for practicality. At least I can fold the rear seats to put some long furniture from Ikea.

only used units that are most likely worn/modded.
its gotten much cheaper, but not as cheap as you think.

parts on the 86 also even worse... good coilovers alone already almost 10k. how you guys to FI it? brakes?
estimate at least 30-50k if you're that ambitious.

Not as expensive as you might think bro, especially those worn out units, which even you factor in a total rebuild of power plant, it's still consider ok-ish, depends on your OCD level.

Also, 50k for mods, that's because you are in the beast league. Don't compare with us which in the kici-meow league.

There will be Mazda 2.2L Sky-D next year, not sure will be sub RM140k or not. But torque and FC wise, I think it is a big win.

Let's see, if medium level coilovers (not those Ohlins level ya) like Tein, Tanabe, HKS maybe 5-7k can get?
Then 17' lightweight JDM rims like RPF1, can buy good used ones for say 3-4k maybe.
Then good performance tires, maybe about 2k all.
Brakes maybe can adopt from std 4/2 pots of other cars? Say spend around 3-4k front & rear to get refurbished calipers with new discs, pads, & stainless hose.
Exhaust maybe up to 2-4k
Then bolt-on FI plus engine management and additional gauges, can be 20-30k.
Then don't forget a good security system to protect all these stuff, maybe another 2-3k?
So total already like 34k-52k, no?
Belum lagi if want to do further chassis stiffening like bars & bushings. Then how about add body kits, and change some components just to improve AV entertainment a bit? brows.gif Total already like half the used price leh.

A LOT of foreigners did. There's a recent YouTube 'er I watched who did just that and more, the total amount he spent could have gotten him a R35 GTR instead that will beat the 86 in just about any way.

=edit=
Thinking back, technically I did the same with the Inspira. So lol

Hahaha, I'm not in the 'beast' club la, I just made some guesstimate based on what I know la.
Note that some of those are used stuff wor, like used rims and calipers! Imagine if you want to buy brand new ori RPF1 and Brembo/AP Racing/Project Mu calipers? Easily top up another 10-15k there. Then how about carbon fiber seats? Belum lagi if you want fully built motor with forged internals to take more boost? Endless possibilities with endless spending! laugh.gif

Tires to properly take in all that power need at least 3k+ (AD08R), more if you're planning to widen it beyond the usual 215/225 width lol

A LOT of foreigners did. There's a recent YouTube 'er I watched who did just that and more,  the total amount he spent could have gotten him a R35 GTR instead that will beat the 86 in just about any way.

=edit=
Thinking back,  technically I did the same with the Inspira. So lol

Foreigners, are a whole different story.

Like me, I also just watched somebody rebuild a crashed evora around 40k usd-ish, which is barely enough for a top spec camry in the states.

Comparing like this have zero context, since car price, part price and buying power is way off.

Thus, it is increasingly rare to see people in Malaysia dumps 40-50k in a 100k car.

I absolutely respect those people. laugh.gif

But again, it make no sense, at all. rclxub.gif

For me, it's still a 100k car.
Few thousands for the suspension, maybe 5 for the brakes and a full 10k in a mild FI.

Of course, you won't expect to see all new shiny stuff in this scenarios. Bummer. laugh.gif

I dump 30k on minor mods /maintenance for a 60k Inspira. 20k fuel over 2 years also not included.
Then 20k on loan repayment.

I know, I never did made much sense when it comes to things I love laugh.gif

don't bully me cry.gif Yeah, very true and valid points, but for me and my age, I'd so much rather have an 86 than a Camry as a daily with the 140k budget. So to each their own icon_rolleyes.gif

WOW didn't expect wild GT86 will appear in this poll

Interesting most Malaysian prefer the Civic over the Mazda 3, maybe due to turbo haha

It's all up to everyone to limit their own spending. For me I set a target mod and budget and I try to stick to it, more or less. Lol

My wife never wants to drive me cuz I always criticize how shitty her driving is and ends up in arguments! Lol Anyway I also would never let her drive my baby!

Haha. If you enjoy driving, why not. It’s outstation for me everyday, no way I’m going to drive 7 days week. Her car is more comfortable than mine, so yeah she’s the driver on family days.
