Ride Quality: very comfortable and supple ride. Bumps are absorbed very nicely.
NVH: For B segment car, NVH is very good. Perhaps can be even quieter if change tires that are better with NVH.
Sound system: Arguably the best sound system in B segment. Audio quality is very good for this segment.
Instrument cluster: very nice looking. The 4.2 display is very nice
Build quality: no rattles. Everything looks and feels very solid. Even though dashboard is hard plastics, it feels like good quality hard plastics.
Boot space: 500+ litres is very good!
Reliability: well, it's a Toyota!
Storage space: a bit lacking storage space in the cabin.
Powertrain: Could just be a bit more powered. The chassis can definitely handle more power. But power is still adequate enough.
Lack of Telescopic steering wheel: I'm 180 cm, so it's a bit difficult to find an ideal driving position.
Center arm rest: the position of it is just.....weird.
1.Front seats offer good support thanks to the shape and hardness of the cushion
2.UMWT-added driving video recorder and USB charging ports, so far so good (this was back in 2017 ya)
3.Standard 2-DIN audio has plenty of equalizer settings (many stock 2-DIN doesn’t offer this much of spectrum)
4.The new Dual VVTi (2NRFE) engine is very fuel-efficient and a whole lot quieter than the outgoing 1NZ. This was also mentioned by ‘Dugong’ owners.
5.Fitment of VSC and works incredibly well, almost transparent
1.No Multi-info Display for 'Range to go', 'Current fuel consumption' and 'Average fuel consumption'. (missing in J and E variants)
2.No telescopic-adjusting steering column (nearer-further adjustment). The seating position is always compromised as the wheel is too close to the meter
3.With the combination meter having three individual covers/buried deep, it gets difficult to read (due to lack of light) even at 5 pm or past 8 am
4.Severe lack of storage spaces (no secured area for a current-day smartphone)
5.Relatively slow steering speed (over 3 turns lock-to-lock)
6.Clutch bite point is pretty high up the pedal, plus it is rather heavily spring-weighted too
7.The accelerator pedal is tiny, making rev-match a little tricky (fortunately found a solution)
8.Same experience with other owners: rear damping is too soft; lateral brace-bar will scrape the tall humps
9.The handling does not offer confidence. the long-stroke suspension is still tuned for daily comfort
10.No Hill Start Assist absolutely will notice (and want) it when you drive along Jalan Maarof Bangsar every day
