jandj Godwin says:

OMG whats going on with Paultan your written reviews are a lot better, 3 of
em are no way better than a VW Golf but what is the primary criteria when
we buy cars, is it value,Power,comfort, ride & Handling, The kia looks good
but it rolls like boat on curves making 1 feel nausea and it has lot of
power but dosent have handling 2 match its engine so for a lot its a big
NO! Focus has only 1 negative in my opinion backseat legroom SUCKS, so it
cant be the winner again, Honda is total fail waste of money same as Toyota
want a boring car that lasts a generation take Honda/Toyota
Golf is the real winner here but Y is it not in competition
The biggest drawback of Kia is at speeds above 100 kmph the interior noise
is horrible compared to calm atmosphere in Focus
Another blunder the Mini does 0-100 in 12.4s so it gets smoked by Focus and
Kia so whats the point with a slow Mini

ljanhong says:

Lancer / Inspira will have much better handling than all three cars in the
video, but could’t agree more that the Cerato is packed with features and
that low price tag for what you get. 

yuunjac says:

Amazing job, keep it up

Gene Lim says:

Cerato… am tempted :D

Skarphéðinn Sæmundsson says:

you will not feel vtec “kick in” on a eco vtec motor. and you shouldn´t be
able to feel the “kick” if a performance vtec motor is set up correctly as
Honda has thankfully started doing, that old “vtec kick” was a sales
gimmick.

upbeatmantis86 says:

mini one? it looks underpowered… even a vios can beat it

Choong Smith says:

in conclusion Civic the once king of this segment is outdated and even
Korean Cerato now has better value for money but in the end the Peugeot 208
GTI is clear choice for this price range..well done SPOT ON!

hantuafiq2 says:

how about peugeot 408 turbo?

sebbi3 says:

i want to see the battle of the GTI’s~!!!

Prostreetcrazy says:

My choice is still Ford Focus 

boyzepter says:

Ahmad Nazri says:

Nice review

Mega Cs says:

ford focus really the best

Divananda Mayakrishnan says:

It’s great how you guys brought in the extra options. I thought that the
Civic would be a great first car, but now I’m starting to rethink my
options.

Robin Valinski says:

Switching lane without using the indicator ?! .. Hmmm 

remirez avante says:

good show, good review, malaysian style, love it lah!

Kt Eric Tan says:

When will there be a review of all D-seg such as 508 passat accord camry
sonata k5…and so on!

Jeyan Rawr says:

needed a mazda 3 here :(

Amirul Hazmi says:

This show is improving IMHO. You guys have a lot of ideas to add more
humors and jokes to the show, but please make it more natural and
spontaneous. Nevertheless, keep it up! 

Ali Ibrahim says:

wow.. didnt know the car in Malaysia are that expensive.. just to let you
guys know in Brunei we can get 2.0 Civic with full body kits for $38k.. and
just now i saw cerato on the newspaper the lowest monthly payment we can
get is $349 per month for 7 years. well basically those 3 cars are on
average of $30k.. all the functions and stuff are exactly the same too.
even for audi Q5 here cost only $77k. 

arthurssq says:

poor harv lol
gets the short end each time =p
some funny elements here and there. i like it XD

Zac Chew says:

hey there are many more c segment cars. how about those?

Irfan Pan says:

pity civic

BluesEyePeas says:

Paul Tan where’s your driven#5 im waiting with my super long neck just to
let you know 

ted lim says:

Rubbish! The Focus is the best!

Foxtrot Fon says:

Lol chuck norris

Budleee Bazz says:

lol… I do agree, Honda has gone to the other directions with their cars.
I sat in the latest Accord, and was turned off by it. too bad, the Cerato
fails IIHS Small Overlap crash test. Civic and Focus pass

steve weisberg says:

hey just switch off the ECO mode in civic while testing
ECO mode is rubbish, with eco mode, u cant feel the power of VTEC
Eco mode is design for those people dont know how to control their
throttle, without switch on ECO, my car more fuel economic

Khairul Nizam says:

getting better in every show, can u guys show how practical each car for
daily activity 

Rai says:

no vtec… u need to off the econ. haha

tineagle says:

best episode yet! but you guys need to show more natural chemistry. the
speech sounds very scripted and un-natural

divyan nair says:

maybe the battle of the hybrids for the next episode?

shahrul thegong says:

can you review chevrolet cruze? just wannna some info about that car

Kim Leng Kee says:

next:
Mazda3 vs new Altis vs Golf !!

Derrick Chan Fwu Shin says:

When Harvinder was complaining about the lack of power in the Civic, the
Eco-mode was switched on. I bet he’ll say differently when it’s off; I
experienced it countless times.

genxl86 says:

Do the rm180k+ range

Iykmal Hamdy says:

Every car has its own strenghts and drawbacks. The Koreans are getting
better and better. I think those people at Honda are far too long living in
the comfort zone . Feeling ang thinking their cars are better than their
fellow Koreans. But just look at Samsung, the giant electronic entity . It
simply outdo the japanese rivals. It’s not about who do best but who learn
best. Whether we like it or not…Korean cars are going to invade the
world. In the 70’s people said Japanese cars suck!!!! British Ford Escorts
were the top pick then. How things have changed. Anyway guys I like your
show!!!! Do it our Malaysian way, be polite … What Mr Clarkson is going
to say???
