Honda City 2009

Thumbs-up to the exterior designing team at Honda! This latest City is definitely much prettier comparing to its predecessor. Improved rear leg-room, overall cabin space and dials making it practical and good value for money. It is powered by i-VTEC 1500cc motor with 5-speed auto-box that comes with F1 Style flappy paddle shift.

Toyota Vios 1.5 TRD

The word "fun" is written all over it. TRD boys have done a brilliant job transforming this compact sedan into something more appealing to young drivers that seek excitement in their daily-drive. Very hugging race-bucket seats, Momo steering, TRD suspension system, and a lot more TRD performance bits can be found inside this "boy racer". Although, it powers by the same 1500cc VVTI motor as any regular Vios. With the help of a proper 5-speed manual box and some weight shed, this little "toy" does have the ability to inject a little grin on your face after a spirited drive. Steering is precise, but lacking of feedback. The car drives more like a hatch than a sedan. Agility is good, perfect for a city car. It is build with purpose; "boy racer", comfort is definitely not a top priority.
