Based on my own opinions, these are few brands which I feel have made tremendous improvements and progress to their car making etc.

Kia
Mazda (since last 5 to 6 years)
Especially their new Mazda 3 and 6 are quite awesome.

Hyundai

Peogeot (their latest series of car are very exciting indeed)
Reliable or not, maintenance high or not, still unknown

Opel and Renault - their latest models are really heart stealers. Very sleeze and timeless. Reliable or not.. Another issue as I have not tried owning one before.

Here are some brands which I think quite disappointing in recent years.

Toyota - maybe still as reliable but somewhat losing much of their appeals in terms of their designs and overall. It still cannot do away with the reputation of producing uncle's cars model that appeal to more mature people. My personal opinion.

Honda, mobilo, shuttle, grace and even the new civic.. Looks kinda awkward and it seems they are trying too hard but too overkill. The new civic looks overkill and trying too hard, and it does not look very modern and rather backwards.. Personal opinion again.

Nissan.. Well as always, they are never the best among the top and always churning out bulky, fatty, mature looking cars that not really appealing to younger buyers.

Mitsubishi..their peak was the Glx and ex Lancer era.. After which... It seems really difficult to accept. Maybe they are gg for higher end suv or mpv now.. But their sedan's series is quite pathetic.

Suzuki and surbaru... Maybe surbaru are going better but still 2nd tier or even 3rd tier when comes to those mentioned.

Like you have said it yourself, it is all about opinion and everyone has their own opinions about everything in life including cars. And improve in what sense, look? Generally most would have the same opinion about look. Reliability? How to tell reliability when a new model is just launched ? Build quality ? Comfort? Interior trim ? Price? A good car have to have balance of everything, it cannot be good in one aspect and do poorly in another aspect. It is a endless debate.

True also. That's why this is purely personal opinion. And I believe my preference and taste will change over time as I progress or age..
That's why this is just for sharing and letting your own opinion be heard too. U might have your own preferences over why u still chose certain brand.

I generally go with the mass market. Since most people buy the model & brand, it must be good. Cannot go wrong too far.

However, SG car market is very small, it is better to take reference from neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Thailand into your consideration. Always aim the top 5 model and brand, you should be on the safe side. Re-sale value also good and easy to get rid off if you wish to change your ride after 2-3 years

Proton big car as good as last generation Accord and Perodua is as good as any Daihatsu.

The Myvi is not even a rebadged Daihatsu. It's completely designed in house.

I would he happy to drive a Proton or Perodua these days.

If u look at our neighbouring country only toyota and honda are the only 2 brand that is popular. In fact sg very good although market small but car brand variety quite wide.

Guess we are mostly visual person.. Looks and maybe comfort is one of the most influential aspect when chose a car. I am definitely one. I wanted to buy the chevrolet cruze and test drove 2..but in the end.. Aesthetic wise it pleased me, but when I was inside.. The comfort level pushed me away..

And when come to reliable or not, or maintenance ok or not, usually I would dare to take the risk and adopt the "heng-sway" mentality and by good faith drive it as if it will not be an issue.
So when I rate a brand improve or not improve.. A lot of aspect is places on aesthetic

French cars are very poor in reliability. That's why you don't see older Citroen, Peugeot and Renaults on the road. After few years they are taken off the road.

And judging a car based on looks alone is so shallow and naive.

Kia - yes big improvement. Not just exterior design but the quality of their interior materials are competitive now. New Cerato has great interior for that price bracket.

 

Subaru : Good that they finally got out of the EJ engine after 30 years. Bad that they using CVT which I dont like the feel of. Interiors improved but nothing fantastic. The coming Legact is TERRIBLE. I remember when the beautiful Gen 4 legacy came out, Subaru had an advert mocking the ugly Kia Magentis. How the tables turned. Now Kia Optima is so much prettier than Legacy.

 

Toyota : New Camry looks not so Ah Pek. Interior still a bit ah pek though. But still nice (I semi ah pek) and comfortable. Overseas Camry also got quad exhaust wor!

 

Mitsubishi : We mock at them for building crappy Attrage and boring SUV. We remember the Jackie Chan Thunderbolt 3000GT and the Evo III to Evo X and (for older buggers) the Colt Starion Turbo and all the other 80s Mitsu Turbos. But guess what, they are selling more than ever now. Its just the fact that majority of consumers want annoynig SUVs and Crossovers. 3000GTs and LanEvos look good in magazines but they dont help car makers make that much money.
