    as i've told you before, none of these cars can really take a baby seat 'comfortably'.
    and yours is before 1 year old baby which means your child seat has to be back facing and it will even take up more space.your front passenger seat will have to move foward.if you have tall passengers, knees might hit the glove box.

    dont forget to include wear and tear.
    these doesnt come cheap.pads, tyres, filters....blah.
    Good advise seem that our sis here have good knowledge on car. Which car u are driving?

    btw, to add on,
    vios: to have child seat back facing, ur car space will almost take out 2 seat.
    Jazz/fit: back storage too small... just bear in mind if ur baby stroller is a big one.

    but above mention car do have a good FC. How about Mit Lancar? I heard quite good and spacous too. and the price is quite managable as well.

    As mentioned by someone earlier, do take a look at the Latio - quite spacious for a sedan in it's class (boot is quite big too).

    Also, another thing to consider (not sure it applies to Singapore) but do you need to buy the car new ? I know overseas, if you buy a 1 to 2 year old car, you can save a significant amount on the cost of a brand new car (the original owner takes the large depreciation hit for the privilege of owning a new car).

    nissan GTR

    at 270k, it cost only a fraction of f430 scuderia, yet it can almost go on par with it from 0-100.

    and it seats 4 comfortably!
    Here I am, trying to see if a family car is good for me and here you are trying to poison me into performance car. I'm pretty sure it will not hit even 15km/l, and 270k is way way way way above my budget for <60k... so it's out for me.

    Latio is more than $60k. Impreza 1.6 looks nice also but is a bit high on FC because of AWD plus it's already an old model. The 1.5 doesn't have a sedan yet.

    As much as she doesn't like hatchbacks, my wife does not like the idea of a used car either.. So I'll probably get her to bear the depreciation..

    yup... used car cna save u huge amount of $ (~10k-20k) as new car tend to depreciate alot during the first 2 years...

    bro, new car depreciate faster then used car leh... as i mention especially first 2 years. Friend of mine, bought a 2 years A6 (1.8) for only less than 60K from sgcarmart. but that is provided that you know how to inspect the car... otherwise it would be risky and turn up paying more for servicing the car due to breakdown.

    Concensus is that the Lancer GLX FC is about 12~13/l, Vios is about 14~15/l, they are about the same price, but Vios is a new model and lancer GLX is already an old model. Think Vios commands a better OMV. The new Vios is slightl more spacious than the old one and with the J model (cheapest one) with only 1 SRS airbag, I might be able to accomodate the back facing baby seat in the front passenger seat instead of the rear seat.

    Comments? Darn.. I'm really new into this and most of the time I don't know what I'm talking about..

    please, i was only referring to build quality.
    it's really plasticky and everything seems to rattle and tattle.

    performance wise, evo's the way to go.

    other than photography, my other passion is in cars...
