He'll more likely regret if the new Vios 2013 launch sooner than expected next year. Yes, the price is slightly lower, but in terms of quality in terms of technical, does it even come close to Vios 2013? How often and how easily could he dispose the ride for new one if he finds it not ideal?
Almera the uglier Dugong design is totally awful not just in terms of looks but the weight distribution. Having such long chassis with that narrow width eventually giving more drag to the rear as per law of physics. Yes, it could give lots of legroom space but the drag from the long and narrow chasis that sits higher will not give stable aerodynamic ride.
That is why the infected journalists could not even cover up the unstable high speed cruising though they speak nothing on its sluggish drive up slope and starting from idle. If they said the weight is just as light as Vios, at least the Vios is lower in height with wider width and stance yet it is shorter therefore for the 141Nm to pull 1050kg is not an issue.
U r talking craps here again, in fact Vios is merely 5 mm wider than Almera & Vios wheebase is merely 40mm shorter, one should compare wind resistance base on Drag coefficient factor not the lengh or heigh of a car, Vios has 0.30 compare to Almera 0.31 which is marginal.
How about Almera having bigger first gear ratio u like to talk about ? Everybody know that Dugong was a nickname given to Vios so don't try to pass it to Almera, in fact Almera main selling point is the internal space & fuel efficiency which been proven by AW, PTB & MT base on test of 13units of car.
Admit it u r a bad loser who can't bash Almera base on Safety since it has already proven in US most stringent crash test & proven fuel efficiency by EPA & actual road test been carry out by the top 3 auto website in Malaysia, plus Almera is a international available model, sore loser is what u r now, loses in a fair competition but whines about it on constant basis, blaming everyone around u exept ur self, now taunting every where in this forum.
