I think is like this lah. While HM launched the CT, every1 booked one bcuz
its so affordable, bcuz they do not want to left out not ordering 1, bcuz
they do not want a long waiting period, bcuz this n bcuz that. At that
time, no Vios for look, touch n drive yet. So, all booked CT first lah.

Then, came Vios. And it definately looks better than the 'iron' / 'boat' /
whatever lah. And also the proven VVTi loh. CT is so futuristic that not
many ppl can accept that yet. Maybe, HM should launch it in year 2020.
That is what I think ppl shifted.

Big Smile Just my 2 cents ok.

I switched over to Vios becoz :
1) The inital price of Vios was so high, RM95k compared to CT-RM79k, but
now RM81k...wow.
2) I don't like the city rear looks while on the road & my gf dun like its
front looks. Vios Exterior looks much sporty, i like the head lights & fog
lamp too
3) EPS sterling gave me a light feeling.
4) No quick responsive of puching the power while on driving on 70km/h and
above.
5) Prefer Toyota car, realiable, as i heard over Honda. (my 1st toyota)
6) No heart touching when viewing CT.
7) The CT rear seat doesn't look and seated nice. although Vios is smaller
in leg room.
.....etc...i forgot...
my 2 cents...

Initially want CT but ended up with Altis Big Smile

Until today, still prefer CT than Vios though.

IMHO, the main dislike of the VIOS is the centre instrument panel ala
Matrix and facelifted Kancil.......

Guys...

Looks like the deciding factors evolve around the following features

1. Reliability
2. External shape design - longer appealing period
3. Stronger brake power
4. More powerful & responsive engine
5. Comfortable seat

Did I miss any features ? And ...

..any more to add ?
