Many have said Altis is boring and not nice to look at, but I feel that it is a very reliable car which transports me around in comfort safely. The exterior styling, while not immediately eye-catching, grew on me over time and I feel that it is a handsome car in its own right. The engine, while not extraodinarily powerful, is good enough to allow you to overtake with ease once you know how to play around with the acceleration. Gear shifts are smooth and hardly noticeable.
Handling is not one of its strengths, but that was never intended to be one of the Altis' strengths. The ride is very quiet and even at high speeds, the cabin noise is not overly loud, so you can still enjoy the radio. Of course, this is also dependent on the tyres you use. The materials used in the cabin are of decent quality and gives the feeling of entry-level luxury. Dials and controls are all laid out cleverly and easy to reach. Fuel consumption is a great strength of this car, which can hit 14-15 km/l if you are not a heavy footer.
Overall, a great car for your daily needs and one that will not let you down.
