Not sure what some are smoking here, but the price for base to base, H brand is almost 10k difference in comparison to Almera and they are harking about having more airbags?? Economy dictates what car we can afford unless you a typical keyboardist where money fall from the sky - at the end of the day you buy base on 3 criterias - price point, value and availability - if a model fulfills the criteria for buyer, they buy.
Being king for certain models doesn't mean being the best - current Honda Civic is definitely king, its everywhere,but I would gravitate to Mazda 3 and if sales is the only reason, I wouldn't even look at Mazda let alone the resale value. Does it mean Mazda stopped producing good car when Civic seems to triumph on volume, i think not. Or should everyone start looming at the x70 since its a winner too...At the end of the day, there is no perfect car, just the perfect value - in the eyes of the buyer
I don't know what others are smoking but I don't mind having some of yours.
Almera starts around 70k, City starts around RM74k, the difference is less than RM4k.....where did the RM10k figure come from? Almera base spec comes with 1 airbag and ABS; City base spec has 2 airbags, ABS, VSA, HSA. Almera doesn't even have bluetooth.
If you can't afford a City, just get a top spek Persona. Between this 2 models, Almera has nothing else to offer at all other than a Japanese badge.
The Mazda 3 and Civic comparison is not the same. Mazda is actually a great driver's car with a nice design in and out plus a responsive drivetrain........even if it is not as practical or powerful as the Civic. That's the value that no other car can offer at that price point. What Almera has to offer that Honda couldn't at just 4k more, or Persona at RM15k less?This post has been edited by dares: Aug 8 2019, 04:36 PM
