Review: 2020 Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8G - Slowest in class, but does it matter?

Above a certain price point, car buying starts to become a game of desire versus rationale. At RM 140,000, you could easily get a used F30 BMW 3 Series or a W212 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. That's desire talking. The rationale in you would be screaming maintenance cost and reliability. For peace of mind then, you turn to new cars and for the longest time, the Toyota Corolla has been the embodiment of rationale. It will probably outlast cockroaches and sweep used car dealers' feet off. Those who want
