2021 Hyundai Elantra / Avante (CN7)

FC is a consideration but only after many other factors like price, performance, aesthetics, safety features, specs etc

As I’ve mentioned several times, don’t see what the fuss on Avante’s FC is all about. All reports coming back including local tests shows decent FC. If there is a need to scrutinise FC, then it shld be vs the competition not against published figures n so far I’ve not read of adverse differences vs the competition.

If need to pick on Avante, I would say it would be the price but only cos it’s in A2 VES banding hence it shld be priced lower. However, I’m not in the camp of since Altis is price so much, Avante shld be lower. That’s simply not in my thinking at all. Just cos Altis is the benchmark, doesn’t mean it can’t be overtaken or equalled right?

Buyers with elderly parents using this car should bring them along. Although it's not as low slung as the Civic, this car sits lower than the older version. 

So those with weaker quads might want to try it out... there is a reason why we are gravitating towards SUVs, and the older buyers prefer to climb up than squat down...

nope, civic is lower at 1416mm and avante at 1430mm.

Not much difference...

But internally the Civic seat is rather low slung, some cars don't have that high a ground clearance - see the City, built for flood prone Thai Roads, but have a high hip point - see a typical MPV, like the B Class, which doesn't have a very high ground clearance, but the hip point is almost as high as a SUV, which is why it's very popular in Germany with the middle aged men with some means..

I understand it's legally binding to provide true specs to LTA when have cars registered.

On paper, manufacturers are obligated to provide all the information like what engine type, what specifications the engine it is using.

VES labels are tested based on a set of conditions which is supposed to be unified against all cars sold in Singapore. This testing is done by NEA if i am not mistaken.

In any case, I wont take the label rating as the final say in FC. Till date, I have not achieved an avg consumption which was stated by the label today on my Avante based on 1 full tank top up.

My Vios i feel like they adjusted very high leh! Like the rims can upgrade 2 more inches still have clearance... Once warranty over maybe will adjust downwards...

The Vios and City are cars build for flood prone countries and streets with large potholes 

they also feature innards to facilitate repair work and maintenance by less than well trained mechanics 

this new Elantra will be put under the sword in a few years if they mess around with the reliability rep the previous model built up

I tried the civic before and find it extremely low, should be one of the sedans in the market with the lowest sitting position. Nowadays with many big cars, SUV, heavy traffic on the road, getting one with a higher sitting position should be more favorable.

Just enjoy the drive rather than keep focusing on the FC. So if you get 18km/l then what? Feel good for a while but the drive damn boring. Spent $100K on a car then so bothered by the FC for 10 years. What’s the point?

Such people want to own a car yet still want to save money.

 No cars in this world is built to withstand large potholes like what you say.

I already find the 2006 era civic low liao. So the current civic i find even lower. I sit inside and find it not very good to get out from the car. This is why now i would prefer a suv if can afford one. But suv if sit behind like quite prone to feeling motion sickness. 😅

newest price list out and prices are unchanged from before this week's coe increase.

you should be able to get an outright 5k discount from the prices for deliveries in january onwards. so for buyers of the S trim at least, that's 92,999, a good 7k less than what it was at the beginning of the month.

i'm locked in at the old price, unfortunately, cos i'm taking delivery soon, but i wonder if people who bought for december delivery have leeway to push collection date till january for a 5k discount

I dont think that the new Avante can go any more wrong than any Japanese car. A 1.6L with CVT is a staple out there.

*touch wood, hoping my CVT dont spoil on me*

I would be more worried with a DCT, especially those of the French if I buy a new car.
