    2019 All new Mazda 3

    That's what Mazda is trying to target with this generation of Mazda 3, entry level models from premium marques (A-Class, A3, 1 series). Whether buyers think the same way is another story.

    2018 Kia Cerato K3 / Forte (BD Series)

    Yup I get that. I understand when Cerato first launched last year, there is no ESC at all for L and EX. But I came across an ESC off button on a Cerato EX display model in June at the Alexandra showroom so I was wondering if they have added ESC standard to EX model or is it just that particular display unit having ESC for some reason. Didn't manage to double check with any SE then.

    2018 Kia Cerato K3 / Forte (BD Series)

    Was at Kia Alexandra showroom back in June and I saw the display EX model having the ESC off button. Still no ESC for EX? Or was that showroom unit an anomaly?

    2016 / 2017 Subaru Impreza

    Wonder if the Impreza 1.6 will make a return with the facelift...

    About the new Hyundai Accent 1.4 litre

    Older one. Apparently Hyundai South Korea still manufactures and sells the older model in their home market. No idea if (ever) the new one is going to launch in Korea, I believe this new model has been out in North America for more than a year?

    2018 Kia Cerato K3 / Forte (BD Series)

    Hi, may I check where did you get the figure of $76K for Avante S? I saw recent KMC pricelist indicate Avante S is selling at $81K.

    2018 Kia Cerato K3 / Forte (BD Series)

    They are pushing it as free upgrade from L to EX hence the high price for L model.

    2019 12th Gen Toyota Corolla Sedan

    They definitely will sell the new Altis, it's the B & B model for them. Thailand launch expected this month, I would expect it to be a Singapore Motorshow launch next year (like how they launch both the RAV4 and Camry during Motorshow this year). I wouldn't hold my breath for any form of passive safety features like blind spot on the our version of new Altis though.

    Honda Civic 2007 Repair/Maintenance

    Hi, any updates on the B-pillar trims? Any luck to have them replaced?

    Honda City 4th Gen

    You are right, apologies for the mistake, same output figures as 2008 City's powertrain led me to assume it is the same engine. It is L15Z1 used in current City and Mobilio, whereas 2008 Jazz 1.5 and City uses L15A7.

    Honda City 4th Gen

    City still uses the older SOHC engine dating back to the previous gen 2008 Jazz 1.5/City if I am not wrong. Current Jazz 1.5 uses the newer direct injection DOHC engine. Surprisingly the JDM version of City, Grace uses this same DI DOHC engine as Jazz 1.5.

    Honda City 4th Gen

    I believe it is only for City SV with power folding wing mirrors, a module is added to auto fold when car is locked instead of having to press a button to fold them. If your City is the V model then I don't think it is applicable since there is no power folding wing mirrors in the first place.

    Kia Stonic

    Unlikely we will see it here unless C & C plans to sell this rather than the larger Sportage. Only choices of powertrains for the Seltos are 2.0L NA, 1.6L Turbo (should be same unit as Kona), 1.6L Diesel, all will put it in Cat B. Stonic will still be the smaller SUV with smaller engines (1.0L Turbo).

    10th Generation Honda Civic (2016)

    8th and 9th gen all had 1.6L engine. It is still mechanically the same unit powering the current 10th gen 1.6L Civic. Can say it dates more than 13 years back since 8th gen FD4 in 2006. Globally the Civic normally uses 1.8L but due to our tax and COE structure, we have the 1.6L.
