If can live with high FC, mean Persona wins all

Reliability wise so far so good ?

Reliability wise, I'd say go for Persona 2019 and you'll have that peace of mind. Majority of the reviews I see so far, the differences between Persona 2019 & previous years' model (2016 & 2018 if not mistaken) is like langit dan bumi. I myself a user of Persona 2016, there are minor setbacks here & there. But overall, I love the car when I'm behind the steering. The feeling, I just can't describe it. But you'll know it if you love the car.

My vote will be for the Persona.

The new updated Persona is very good buy, value for money. In terms of drive the Persona is better than the City provided you change the Silverstone tyres.

The Persona chassis is also better, go for the Premium variant.

The cons of Persona compared to City is the rear passenger space, City is definitely biggest in class if you are fetching tall people at the back always then do consider the City.

my only concern is the reliability of persona, it’s still using the punch cvt, will it be reliable? How bout others components such as the mountings, car suspension systems , can last ?

INO, the main con of Persona compared to City is the clutch-based cvt VS torque converter coupled CVT of City.
The City behaves like a car equipped with conventional auto box (except for the minor rubber band effect from standstill).
The Persona needs adaptation. I'd expect to have more difficulty in throttle control when caught in a jam on a slope as you can't creep the car.

I think City tops the cart for FC, specifically for segment B. Else, in term of handling, ride and comfort, Persona wins hands down  thumbup.gif

the weird thing is that the city has a larger profile, and is also heavy. but FC on highway is a bigger difference compared to in city driving here the difference might be 1-2km/l

SE adds a dashcam, built-in toll reader (something like smarttag), door visor and trunk organizer.

Year 2020, buy 2019 car, ask for discounts. brows.gif
But if you plan to change the car <5 years better get the 2020 car.

I see. I learn something new today.
Well it’s still crap, and Punch CVT is the crappiest of crap CVT I’ve driven. Wouldn’t buy it either.
