    IF there's a COE category for < 1000cc cars and not lump every car from 0cc to 1600cc into a single category, I will consider. Cos it will make every single sense for buying a small car with a matching price rather den getting a small car that costs like a VIOS. What's the point of it then?

    Den again, there's always the general conspiracy theory that if anything will cause LTA to lose money will not be implemented . Makes u wonder why Segways and Electric Bicycles are being banned...

    Its just a trend..days of MPVs are ending soon..Europe has already seen a jump on the number for small cars/concept cars..

    But then, when it comes to buying a car, requirement and purpose is more important than following the trend..

    But now a day the COE for CAT A has reduce to around 10K to 13K and above >1600cc CAT B also fall within the same price or sometimes less than the CAT A.
    Seem like more people are going for below <1600cc car or small car due to higher fuel consumption and road tax comparing driving a big car.

    Maybe they think that small cc car got market or can sell in singapore.

    Reason 1/ Small car fuel consumption is lesser and road tax is cheaper. (Around $415 per year)

    Reason 2/ Singapore is a small country so is just for City Drive only.

    Reason 3/ Car price is cheaper and monthly installment is more affordable.

    Reason 4/ For young couple or lone ranger.

    Reason 5/ For small build people (especially lady)

    For some car owner ... if you don't drive for a year, the money save can buy a Canon 1Ds Mk2 or Canon 1D Mk2N + 2 to 3 L lens or a L lens every month

    Would see where the fuel prices slide towards now. No matter how small the car still need to feed it with fuel right?

    Agree! for 1.6cc car fuel consumption is (km/l): 12

    For 1000cc car fuel consumption is (km/l): 17

    Why buy a car, even a small one when you have reliable public transport?

    Singapore is not like Australia, States, Malaysia, or China where there is more land to cover. To me lar, the silliest thing to do is buying a car in Singapore. So much money dump and at the end of the day you leave it at home due to the car parking in places like Orchard, Shenton Way, Suntec and city areas is so ex, fuel prices is increasing day by day and monthly installments you need to pay, insurance, road tax, yearly maintainence (tyres, batteries, engine oil and blah blah)

    Another reason for not buying a car is when you drink, you can't drive.

    The only reason I can think of when buying a car is if I have extra cash. If not, I will stick to the old faithful cab, MRTs, and buses.

    Personally, I will say no. I like cars. Why would I want to spend on a little car which I wont enjoy driving - slow acceleration that's a TU.

    You are not considering budget cars like Chevrolet Aveo, Hyundai Getz?

    If I'm not mistaken, it's ONLY petrol powered bicycles that got banned, by LTA.
