Review
Comfort: Suspension setup is much more decent as compared to the previous generetion.

Chairs can be adjusted in quite a bit of angle to your body posture. Engine noise is quite minimal. The spaciousness is a no brainer.

Reliability: I can say that the gearbox is much improved as compared to it's predecessor 2.4L generations.

What I like
When put gear to P, parking brake auto engage.

Dashboard can display Digital Speedometer.

Hybrid Version: it shows the engine RPM as an option. Cool!

Refined interior, quiet ride.

Side mirror is big.

Easy board and get off.

What I do not like
2.5 is insufficient to push this elephant.
However it's decent along the expressway.

bumper is too low, easily scratched while negotiating a turn.

rear view mirror is small. but it's OEM anyway. Toyota don't bother to make their own mirror.

U turn is a challenge. Legit.

Review
This is the best car for family and long distance driving. Stability, weight, and design play an important role in the wind cut. Well, you can't aspect much to be at top speed as you will end up in the drain!

What I like
Slick design
Interior features and design

What I do not like
Rear seat can't fold flat. This will consume much space lost when folding to the side

Review
The Toyota Alphard has long been a car recognised for ferrying 'towkays' around town. Although I am no 'towkay,' space, comfort and reliability are my priorities when it comes to choosing a family car due to the fact that I have four children.

The new Alphard proves to be an icon of the factors mentioned above, hence my decision to have a look at it last weekend. I have never owned one of these things before and I am thoroughly impressed by the amount of space it has to offer.

The third row seats aren't something to chuck your kids into but it can actually comfortably fit a pair of adults. Interior quality is well-built too, kudos Toyota!

What I like
- A new double wishbone suspension is used for the rear, translating into a luxurious, comfortable ride with stable handling.
- A welcoming interior with comfort-enhancing features (its akin to stepping into a mini hotel room)
- Stylish exterior design

What I do not like
- The 2.5-litre engine lacks a bit of punch, would be great to have the 3.5-litre V6 engine.
- Vellfire design looks better (might just go for that instead!)
- Not the easiest vehicle to park around town (but somethings got to give considering the amount of space you get)
