Been thinking for a long time on which car to buy and can't arrive at a conclusion.
 
Background: My family of 4 (including me, my wife, a toddler and an infant) is looking for a new car. I drop my toddler at school before going to work everyday. I will also fetch my parents/parents in law around maybe 2-3 times per month for outings. I drive to Malaysia (Ipoh) around 2 times per year and probably have some road trips to other places in Malaysia as well.
 
Budget: $120k
 
Features (good to have): Electric tailgate/boot, Keyless entry, Blindspot detection.
 
I'm looking at only AD cars Toyota Wish, Mitsubishi Outlander and the latest Toyota Harrier Turbo (price exceeds my budget a lot but I like this car a lot and it has all the features I want) which will launch in July 2017.
 
Not looking at Honda HRV/Vezel.
 
1. Toyota Wish (price is around $110k)
Pros:
- Spacious interior.
- Fuel consumption quite ok at 12-13km/l.
- Adequate power.
- Budget friendly.
Cons:
- Dated engine. Think the Wish was last launched in 2009 or 2010 and then had a facelift 2-3 years ago.
- Very basic interior.
- Does not have many features. The Wish is just like a Toyota Altis with 3 rows of seats.
- Does not have rear air con vents.
 
2. Mitsubishi Outlander (price is around $120k)
Pros:
- Spacious interior.
- Packed with features not found in Wish.
- I love driving SUV. Wife mentioned that she prefers higher cars though it's not a priority.
Cons:
- Bad fuel consumption. Seems like it can only achieve 8-9km/l as it's a 2.4 SUV.
- Read reviews that power is lacking despite it being a 2.4 SUV.
- 3rd row is not that spacious despite it being a bigger car than Wish.
 
3. Toyota Harrier Turbo (price is likely to be $160k)
Pros:
- Spacious and luxurious interior.
- Powerful engine (go NSH overtaking no problem).
- Fuel efficient at 10-12km/l (as achieved by Lexus NX. Harrier should get better FC).
- Packed full of features which I want.
- Has air con vents for 2nd row.
Cons:
- Burst budget big time. Will be straining my finances if I go with Harrier.
- Does not have 3rd row of seats.
 
My own thoughts so far (but welcome to have more comments and opinions):
- Heart is with Toyota Harrier but wallet says no.
- Wallet says go for Toyota Wish which is an outdated car with not much features.
- My wife and me prefer SUV but the pricing of Wish and the interior space make us consider it.
- I have been driving 2 generations of Toyota Altis (for 10 years) and 2013 Lexus RX (for 2 years) company car. Really like driving a SUV - the feel and higher driving height is really different from a sedan.
- Mitsubishi Outlander seems like an in-between as it has good features but read that FC is really bad.
- I intend to drive at least 5 years. If huat then change car, if bo huat then drive 10 years.
 
What are your thoughts guys? Thanks in advance!

No lah, budget is still $120k. Unlikely to shift up even though I like Harrier a lot. Just that I want to hear what you guys have to say.

Been thinking for a long time on which car to buy and can't arrive at a conclusion.
 
Background: My family of 4 (including me, my wife, a toddler and an infant) is looking for a new car. I drop my toddler at school before going to work everyday. I will also fetch my parents/parents in law around maybe 2-3 times per month for outings. I drive to Malaysia (Ipoh) around 2 times per year and probably have some road trips to other places in Malaysia as well.
 
Budget: $120k
 
Features (good to have): Electric tailgate/boot, Keyless entry, Blindspot detection.
 
I'm looking at only AD cars Toyota Wish, Mitsubishi Outlander and the latest Toyota Harrier Turbo (price exceeds my budget a lot but I like this car a lot and it has all the features I want) which will launch in July 2017.
 
Not looking at Honda HRV/Vezel.
 
1. Toyota Wish (price is around $110k)
Pros:
- Spacious interior.
- Fuel consumption quite ok at 12-13km/l.
- Adequate power.
- Budget friendly.
Cons:
- Dated engine. Think the Wish was last launched in 2009 or 2010 and then had a facelift 2-3 years ago.
- Very basic interior.
- Does not have many features. The Wish is just like a Toyota Altis with 3 rows of seats.
- Does not have rear air con vents.
 
2. Mitsubishi Outlander (price is around $120k)
Pros:

- Packed with features not found in Wish.
- I love driving SUV. Wife mentioned that she prefers higher cars though it's not a priority.

- 3rd row is not that spacious despite it being a bigger car than Wish.

- Fuel efficient at 10-12km/l (as achieved by Lexus NX. Harrier should get better FC).
- Packed full of features which I want.
- Has air con vents for 2nd row.
Cons:
- Burst budget big time. Will be straining my finances if I go with Harrier.
- Does not have 3rd row of seats.
 
My own thoughts so far (but welcome to have more comments and opinions):
- Heart is with Toyota Harrier but wallet says no.
- Wallet says go for Toyota Wish which is an outdated car with not much features.
- My wife and me prefer SUV but the pricing of Wish and the interior space make us consider it.
- I have been driving 2 generations of Toyota Altis (for 10 years) and 2013 Lexus RX (for 2 years) company car. Really like driving a SUV - the feel and higher driving height is really different from a sedan.
- Mitsubishi Outlander seems like an in-between as it has good features but read that FC is really bad.
- I intend to drive at least 5 years. If huat then change car, if bo huat then drive 10 years.
 
What are your thoughts guys? Thanks in advance!

 

 

If got a budget of $120k, then stick to it. 

 

Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 8 to 9km/L is consider quite ok. Most SUV is around there. 

 

Toyota Harrier of 10 to 12km/L is just slightly better than Outlander. Not much diff in the monthly petrol $$$

 

If I am you, will either go for new Outlander or used Harrier around $120k. 

 

Test drive both for the final decision.
