from the angle car shots were taken, i still prefer body sculpture of current altis - the lower body more muscular than this FL one.

Any idea when will this model arrive in SG?

 

Not that I know when it will come.  Usually its will goes to european countries first then to asia & first to taiwan. I reckon it may not come to sg in the very near future.

Agree with you.  I also prefer the current altis.  I don't like the front beefy looks.

If only this Altis comes with the new 1.2TC engine.

But I guess if it does happen, it should be for a new model and not FL.

Altis 2020 perhaps.

All the Altis needs now is a focus on safety, with at least 6-7 airbags and traction control. The current 2 airbags and ABS only is a joke for a family car.

SE asian consumers have a low priority on safety. N toyota correspondingly doesn't bother  [:|]

Assuming can compare what is likely in Singapore if you do the comparison on that site of Elantra v Altis v Renault then Altis still missing a lot of fairly 'standard' features.

Pity because I like the look of it.

The deal breaker for me of the altis is the basic looking clock that still sits right at the console... too old skool for my taste.

 

And they still have that in the facelift model... aiyoh.  :brzzzzz:

Your car buying decision is based on a dashboard clock?...

Of course not.... it consists of various factors such as cost, reliability and so on. 

 

For me, the interior design is rather crucial to me as this is what I get to see EVERYDAY. The layout must makes sense and works for me. 

 

Hence, if the choices of the cars are equal in other aspects, I don't see the point of buying a car where the interior does not pleases me a single bit. In this case, it is the dashboard clock.  [;)]

Buy a magnetic or sticky pad, cover the 1999-esque digital clock with it, affix a nice Seiko or Citizen to it. :a-fun:

I think the dashboard area for the current altis is gear towards old skool style. Not only the clock, even the entire dashboard design looks like those 80s car. Either you like it or dont like it. Lol.

That to me, its a bit disappointing as the outside was way better than the previous generations.

I suppose u can't have everything. I've bought cars which didn't suit me 100% but cos it thicked most of the boxes. Then again, if u find it an eyesore, even if it ticks 99% of boxes, it may be a deal breaker! Goes to show that all of us have different benchmarks n as the saying goes "one man's meat is another man's poison"!
