not quite. Company money means that they are just getting it for you cheaper, or with better discount. You still do pay for it yourself, just in a cheaper way. All 3 cars listed are really good, neither is best, and are pretty different for what you want. Mazda 6 seems small though but is efficient.

If its company money cannot simply transfer to you. If the company is buying to loan to you but still company property is different case. Remember that the company is a business too, buying continental even for company owned car means the company will have less profit to pay others with or offer a better price for their products Even if the company has a lot of money and pays a lot to their shareholders, but some shareholders will not be happy receiving less money.

If company buys then transfers to you can be flagged as fraud for a new car. If transfer to you after 5 years as a means of asset disposal then it would be accepted. If company buying for you but you own the car, that just means its to help you obtain it cheaper, you still pay for it, thats why its important to pick the best for your use case rather than best, because mazda, honda and toyota are good in different areas. Honda is rated no 1 in engines and better safety than the other 2. Toyota goes for reliability overall, so things dont need replacing as much as the other 2 brands. Mazda goes for drivability.

Asking for the best is a misnomer, i could say why get a continental car, why not just get a helicopter? Same with what i say for routers, they said best router so i said the cisco blade routers used in T1 internet exchanges.

that does not mean to spend that money into a high priced car you dont need that will be very expensive to maintain or be a headache later on, as investing and also investing in your kids are important.

And that also depends on the company. Some companies will do the same for junior staff up to a limit.

I think the TS is making a good choice with that list and not going for continental or any extravagant car.

1 business who bought a mercedes for business (image and stuff for VIPs), regretted it, and this isnt even for staff, just to ferry VIPs around.

Still, what im saying is, no such thing as best, only best for specific.

why would you recommend a SUV over a sedan for slippery situations? sedan has lower center of gravity. Infact i've not seen a SUV in rallying, most of them are either sedans or compact or some weird unique thing.

i am planning to buy a car in Jan 2020 and my company are going to sponsor the down payment, insurance and monthly instalment up to RM2k as long as i am still working with them.

So my question is, what car should i buy?

1. Mazda6 2.5
2. Toyota Camry 2.5
3. Accord 1.5T
4. Others
i am not familiar with cars, any sifu here can give me any constructive insight? thanks in advance.

I am guessing the d/p is 10% and term is 7 years.

If that is the case, none of the cars you mentioned can be had for RM2,000 monthly.

Unless you are planning to top up the difference then you should look at 1 car segment below.

by inches!, thats not going to help especially since many homes usually have a slight incline for parking and you can also park if in high rise off the ground, but if you park underground would make no difference.

When you have a lot of water, if it already passes through the radiator doesnt matter SUV or not will still be bad for it since at that height its already high, in which case if ground clearance is what you're after, theres always the pickup trucks. Its not like a SUv has that much higher ground clearance than say a practical road focused sedan which also would not be lowered, whereas a pickup truck would have a lot lot higher ground clearance and the design to go through them, with some having external breathers for the engines.
