Not all Korean car r fuel drinkers......Hyundai Getz 1.1 happen to be the top 5 best FC car locally.
The Jazz/Fit tat have good FC are the i-DSI engine....save on fuel, but spent more on maintenance....it use 8 spark plugs. However there's new one which use i-Vtec engine and from the civic reviews, it should give good FC too Not to forget it's over 100bhp
As for Lancer GLX , lots of bad review years ago but recently seems ok lah. However overall n FC wise not impressive to me at all........A 1.6 Korean car can also hit 12-13km/l under normal driving.
Toyota....lots of problem cos QC not very good now-a-days......
For my choice of car under $60K (I'm not into Nissan cars other than Skyline)
- Honda Jazz/Fit
- Honda City (Better if u can wait for i-Vtec, should be next year)
- Toyota Yaris
- Suzuki SX4
- Mazda 2
Korean car dun lack in quality n build, they had improve so much over the year. Cheap parts, low insurance cost and low maintenance cost r wat Japan car dun offer anymore .....
Wat they r lacking is the export value and demand.....damn low......
BTW, I'm driving Getz 1.6(M) for almost 3 year wif average FC of 12.5km/l.....heavy footer at times, so is this a drinker?
