    4G Toyota Yaris

    There is little sense in bringing in such high tech tiny cars to SG. small cars are tough sell in SG anyway. Its SUV and crossovers rage these days. Sedans and hatches are dying fast. Anyway it is highly unlikely we will get this high tech Yaris. Here in SE Asia, we have the Vios hatch... I mean Yaris. BM can always import this from Thailand

    Prob less than that. Rem this is BM, they will instruct Toyota Thailand factory to give us a big 2DIN hole for the car, no factory leather, no alloy wheels, no aircon etc to depress the OMV. All these will then be installed at the PDI center when the cars are to be delivered to customers.

    should be about the same price range as the the current Prius sedan ba. But it should have Toyota Sense suite, which our local spec Prius lacks

    Well you can migrate to Taiwan ... see they got the Corolla hatch 2L Dynamic Force engine!. See how nice that FACTORY FITTED LCD panel looks and feel like vs that awful 2DIN parts bin HU that we will have eventually?

    That's seriously cold comfort bro. If reg svcs can also go wrong, then those shops shouldn't be ard in the 1st place. Also no AD in SG has explicitly stated warranty coverage for reg svcs jobs. Anyway, $300-400 nett pricing outside vs $1100 at TEK... that's serious $$ just to beat that warranty thingy dead horse.

    The trouble with our Asian market G12 Corolla design is that the design team still tried too hard to cater for the 'traditional'...read ah pek buyers which means they need to tone down the sporty cues and add in alot of chrome etc. This is why in 2020, we still have 2 versions of Corolla worldwide. The sporty model is meant for 1st world, developed countries while this boring front end are for 3rd world countries in this region. And u can see that Toyota designers still retained the flared fenders look... only to find tiny 15-16in wheels in those huge fenders. All these mismatch styling elements are what makes the G12 Corolla sedan looked like it was designed by some rojak sellers LOL The flared fenders would look great in western market Corolla hatch and wagon where 17-18in wheels were standard fit in there.

    Why do u need to replace the fuel pump? Fuel pump is generally not a consumable part. Most other makes does not have a replacement schedule for fuel pumps. You only replace it if it does break down, which is very unlikely for modern Japs and Korean cars If what they said is true, don't tell me those PHV Mazda 3 had their pumps replaced every 6-8 mths ?! Will LCR really spend $1100 on each of their Mazda 3 rental cars? Yes you are right, how do we know if the pump was really replaced? One way is to locate the pump on the engine block yourself and make some marks on it with a perm marker. Check if the marks are still there when u collect your car.

    Esp the rear yes. The tapered end made the car looked narrow which is at odds with today's general design directions where wider is better. The asian market front end also made the G12 looked like a early 2000s Black n Deck Car Vac from the front

    This is why I keep saying the so called warranty is nonsense. $1100 for 60000km svcs ?! 😮 Just buy your favorite and correct spec engine oil from stockist outside, the parts and then go JB for svcs. Come on as if Mazda has no presence in Malaysia? There is NO NEED to replace fuel filter for SG market. Our gasoline is more than adequately clean and it is highly unlikely there will be any dirt that will jam up the filter at 60000km. And please, fuel filter doesn't cost much, less than $100 from stockist or taobao if u want to save even more money Be a smart and savvy car owner, not some one who loved getting their carrots chopped to pieces in the name of so called warranty. in SG, most ADs are the last place one would consider for quick, efficient and affordable svcs. Mazda offers 3 yrs warranty. . But for those AD who offer 5 yrs unlimited mileage warranty, please check EXACTLY what is covered afterall? Chances are its just the engine block after the 3rd year. How often do u blow up the whole engine block ?

    Some PI brought in the JDM G12 Corolla wagon. Too bad they can't spell the nameplate correctly

    I saw it on their roads also. It is smaller and shorter than the G11 esp in the rear legroom. The hatch and the wagon is best looking among the bodystyle. I just find the sedan bodystyle is a last min addition rushed job.

    Other than using Prius 1.8L hybrid system, the base 1.6 and default 1.8L are carried over from the G11. Can't expect Toyota to offer 2L Dynamic Force engine in this part of the world. Most Corolla buyers wouldn't know nor appreciate what it is. Same CVT also. 6MT? U need to import one in from Thailand yourself. Toyota parts and technology would usually hang on at least 2 complete model change before they would intro something new... and that something new is usually existing tech that are already been widely deployed by other manufacturers for many years prior.
