Yalor...Don't know how much can it save by cutting this small details? I know I'm still paying very high price for a car.

For example they cut $200 per car, $200 reduced on the OMV = 110% ARF + 40% custom duty (multiply by OMV) = $500 per car.

 

$500 per car X 200 cars sold per month =$100,000 per month.

 

Can you see now bro?

OK, CNC save alot of money but that doesn't translate any savings for consumers but profit for them.

Like no point... u drive this, people think u rent from uber one.

 

And personally I think the engine of the K3 is nothing to crow about, pickup still feels a little heavy on SX..

It's the frills that we enjoy, like ventilated seats, 4 point front and rear sensors, etc.

 

So without all the frills and just the same engine, I won't get the LX.

But thinking again, for Attrage price, u get exterior that look like K3 except e Rims, and spacious interior.. hmm.. maybe

I considered about LX before, but a lot of accessories are not available, eventually i got for EX.... 

I listed the different between LX and EX for your reference. Cheers!!

 

- No DRL

- No rear aircon

- with 15' alloy rim (EX is 16', SX is 17') 

- the wing mirrow will come with no color (black) 

- Fabric seat instead of leather seat 

- OMV is also lesser than EX, but i can't remember how much

Am considering between k3 and jazz. Anyone was in the same situation as me before purchase? What helped you decide?

 

First time car buyer here. Concerned over k3 fuel consumption.

If looking for space then K3.

If looking for FC then Jazz.

K3 definitely wont have best in class FC, but offers a good driving experience to me.

 

if you want more space than a jazz and good FC can also consider the attrage.

Thanks! I tested the attrage but found the driver seat to be more cramped than k3 or jazz. So that's pretty much out.

What are your priorities?

If looking at fc, jazz win

Stable and road holding, k3

Boot space, k3

Gadgets, k3

Power, jazz

Rear seat space, jazz

Branding, jazz more branded

 

K3 fc on the ave, most ppl getting at the range of 10-12km/l

Jazz 14-15km/l

 

I was in your shoes too. In the end i went for k3. I am not paying 100k plus for a jazz with little to no gadgets. Overpriced i feel. Paying for the brand "honda". Further more, i think jazz is not make in japan anymore

Last Jan I check L trim was equipped with 15" steel rims. Price was $84999 non guaranteed. Now they give alloy rim?

Wouldn't say that Jazz has no gadgets, 1.5 RS still has LED headlamps and DRLs, cruise control, 7-inch touchscreen with reversing camera, compared to K3 SX, yes there are definitely missing features but still respectable in its own right. Anyway, local Jazz models are still made in Japan, alongside the HR-V.
