3. Proton Preve
Proton Preve is a car that excel in terms of ride and handling (one of the best in C-segment), NVH and cabin space. Moreover, for a car of its price, the list of standard equipment is on par with some of the D-segment sedans available in Malaysia. Too bad the built quality is not convincing enough for many and there is still room for improvement.
2. Nissan Almera
Nissan Almera is one of the most affordable, non-national B-segment sedans in our market. Eventhough the Almera is cheap, its refinement, quality and comfort doesn't reflect its low price tag. Moreover, it has a huge cabin which is comparable to some larger cars. Fuel economy is also another plus point for the Almera. The only slightly letdown is its handling.
1. Ford Focus
When it comes to the overall package, I would say the Ford Focus is the best value-for-money car. Handles great (one of the best in its segment) while providing high level of comfort and refinement.
Safety features such as Active City Stop and technology such as Park Assist, Active Grille Shutter and Torque Vectoring Control are only found in Focus if compared with other cars around its price tag. Starting at RM125k, it's a great bargain if compared with other Japanese models around that price tag!
That's all for 2012 and Happy New Year to everyone! May 2013 a better year!!!
