Guys, I've shortlisted two car for my family (family of 3) and my main vehicle

1. 2015 corolla altis 1.8g
Pro-
got big boot
Engine n cvt more refined
Better nvh (a bit)
Offered RM5k cheaper

Cons
Boring
90k km
Out of warranty (owner can give personal warranty of 3 months)

2. Subaru xv
Pro
Looks cool
Still got 3 years warranty
Only 30k km used

Cons
Small boot
Worse nvh than altis (but not by much i would say)
Maybe pricier spare part and maintenance?

Keep in mind the g spec has NO stability control.
Safety always come first.

i'd buy brand new vios or even city instead......used cars typically have higher interest rate (3.3 to 3.9%) vs 2.1 to 2.5% for new cars

That generation of pre-facelift Altis although scored high on NVH (like its predecessors) and was relatively reliable, was spec-ed very low for its asking price when launched. Only the 2.0V with optional safety pack made more sense as a family car. Personally I would consider the facelifted 2.0 FB Civic (or even the 1.8L version) that has slightly poorer NVH, but claws back in terms of cabin and luggage space as well as safety features.

As for the XV, I had a chance to test drive 1 barely a month before driving its successor when it was launched. NVH wise the older XV is definitely noticeably poorer than its replacement, but I would say on par as a Honda City at highway speeds, so its not as bad as some would think. However being a boxer engine, and Subaru 'rarerity' in the market, do expect less expertise outside the SC and aftermarket parts, not to mention additional wear and tear items to maintain for its AWD components. However if you fancy outdoor activities with off-tarmac roads, it is definitely a nice tough compact vehicle to own.
