out of these 4, which one most value for money, good fuel efficiency and least problem?
any other recommendation for a family of 4 with 2 yound kids? meaning need 2 car seats and boot space for stroller(s)
other than HB, i test drove renault megane sedan 1.2 petrol.. do you think this car is a good fancy car to drive?
dont think this fall under value for money, it mainly falls under fancy/pretty with lots of features car to drive... is renault brand reliable? and car wont have alot of after-sales repair issue?
Value for money I would say hands down its the Astra - only the Astra comes with collision warning, blind spot, matrix-type headlamps (optional though) while holding a comprehensive service package and continental feeling.
I would think the Mazda3 HB or Nissan Pulsar might be slightly better in fuel economy however, while the Astra 1.0T might edge out in overall economy due to lower road tax.
The Megane is a nice looking thing, wouldn't call it that fancy though. Modern Renaults should be okay in reliability, problem is parts availability due to small customer base. They share a lot of stuff with Nissan so I doubt the reliability is a big issue.
Ford Focus will sell itself to you on one thing - its class leading ride and handling. Perhaps only the Mazda3 will compete with it on this subject.
Focus and Mazda3 are a bit cramped in rear quarters for some people, both also have modest trunk space, Astra would be best in this case I think. Dunno about Pulsar, never looked at it.
I saw a few pulsar on the road, they looks nice.
I saw one recently, but I thought it was a 6 years old car from a distance because it had a hideously outdated design for the tail lights.
Driving car, not funny, bid for car with COE, ERP, road tax, PARF until you want to barf
