Ek Thai
1.0 AV CVT (2021)
Bought new, Owned less than 1 year
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON97, Mileage: 1,000 km/month
    - Compact size
    - Ample cubby holes
    - Decent grunt from the 1.0 turbo engine
    - Nice looks and imposing presence despite the smaller footprint vs the other P2 models
    - LED headlamps [very bright]
    - ASA safety features for a car in this price range is virtually unheard of
    - Finally auto-fold mirrors as standard
    - Decent fuel efficiency
    - Airbag count and passive safety features are a plus point
    - Bluetooth connectivity which makes answering calls whilst on the move very convenient
    - Decent # of USB charging points in the car
    - Aircon is cold and provides reasonable coolness in spite of our humid weather
    - Reasonable performance if pedal depressed harder when in need of power to overtake [PWR mode + Manual mode]
    - Could do with a mirror for driver's sun visor
    - More adjustability for driver's seat would be welcome - I'm struggling to find ample support for my thighs during drives and I'm not a particularly tall person
    - No Android Auto/Apple Carplay functionality!
    - Smart Link still seems cumbersome to use - not all phones are supported either
    - Gear Up Blaze package for full bodykits not to everyone's taste - should consider allowing customers to only select the roof spoiler
    - Reverse camera is quite blurry at times and not very clear
    - Rear space surprisingly limited and smaller vs the Myvi G3 - back seats may feel too upright
    - Omission of Smart Tag reader seems like a missed opportunity as not everyone has RFID
    - Noticeable lag when gas pedal is immediately depressed before car picks up speed vs conventional auto
    - Slight burning rubber smell is noticeable in the cabin & outside the car especially if driving above 100km/hr
To Improve
- Please give us Android Auto/Apple Carplay connectivity!
- Noise insulation for doors could be improved
- More colour options is more than welcome
- Please ensure all accessories in Gear Up catalog are ready. I've already received my car for close to 3 weeks and I've not received my luggage tray, net, door visors and vibratile padding.
Yes, I would recommend this car
