    2019 Honda Fit / Jazz (4th Generation)

    https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-tokyo-motor-show/hybrid-only-honda-jazz-revealed Looks like it's going to be Hybrid-only for the new Jazz/Fit even outside Europe. Detailed specifications on powertrains not released yet though.

    Yup, Thailand Jazz models are assembled in their local Thai manufacturing plant, alongside City, where Kah's City came from. Hopefully Jazz continues to be imported from Japan. The HR-V is Japan made too. Kah initially brought in the Thai-made HR-V but I guess it couldn't match PI Vezel at that time in terms of features and price, switched to bring in Japan made HR-V instead.

    Likely PIs will bring in the Fit before Kah does. If there’s indeed only 1.0T and hybrid versions, it is very unlikely that we will see this new Jazz be in the same price range as the current one. Wonder if Kah will import the Thailand or Japan assembled version of the Jazz?

    2019 Honda Fit / Jazz (4th Generation)

    Yup, was shocked to learn of the 2 airbags on the CR-V 5 seat, considering it is priced so close to the similarly sized Harrier Turbo from BM and that had the suite of Toyota Safety Sense features plus more airbags. Not to mention the Vios and Altis have 7 airbags as well.

    New Fit launching next week at Tokyo Motor Show. Honda City to follow closely after that next month. Both said to be equipped with 1.0L Turbo engine. Hope Kah don't skimp on safety this time round with these new models but I highly doubt so since the current Civic 1.6 and CR-V 5 seater still make do with 2 airbags. 😐

    Mitsubishi Attrage.

    I believe C & C had always been bringing in the facelifted 2017 Space Star. previously it was stopped because it was under Band C1 under the revised VES hence they probably went back to tune it to current Band A2 and brought it back for sale now. Features wise, it seems more or less the same as the 2017/2018 model previously brought in here.

    Hi, may I check what are the main differences between the 1.3 base model, 1.3 Plus and 1.3 LX? I understand 1.3 base model has no reverse sensors, leather seats and solar film. What does the Plus model add to that?

    Kia SG recently updated their website and brochure on the Cerato. Only change I notice is that ESC now standard across all 3 trims (L, EX, GT-Line), sadly airbag count still 2 for L and EX. At the very least there's ESC now.

    2019 12th Gen Toyota Corolla Sedan

    Seems like Borneo will indeed be bringing in the Altis Hybrid. 2 trims, Standard with what seems to be carryover 1.6L engine and Elegance with 1.8L Hybrid system. Interesting to note see that the 1.6L Standard is under VES C2 band, although given Borneo’s past record (current Altis, Vios, Sienta and Prius), it will most likely be tuned to neutral B band in due course I guess. 🙂

    2014 Honda Jazz / Fit (GK Series)

    Same, just noticed that too... presumably the previous non-LX version is now the Plus since it’s still the same price. It’s the 1.3 Hatchback version @ $70k that is new from what I can see. Was wondering what else can they remove from the non-LX model, previously non-LX models don’t have service credits, solar film, reverse sensors and leather seats. Hmm...

    Latest BM pricelist no longer lists Elegance model for current Altis, guess they have cleared stocks for that? Probably still trying to clear Standard trim stocks. 🤣

    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.

    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?

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