Review
Excellent compact hatchback for past 4yrs, great fuel consumption that's pretty much unmatched even with heavy footing. My dream car previously coz prefer non-taxi related car yet with good consumption due to high mileage.

Overall wouldn't change car if not for growing family members. :)

What I like
1. Off-the-line performance so far only lost to Maserati when i floored the accelerator :p
2. Pick up is good with the additional electric-assist, no 'turbo-lag'
3. 1 of the only few Toyota cars that came with my favorite color
4. Super easy to park even for parallel parking, reserve cam for small car is additional bonus! Normally just head-in & walk off
5. Love the full LED lights; though no DRL so just manually on the fog lights in daytime to increase visibility of small car
6. Though small from outside, you''ll be surprise how much stuff can go in after folding down back seats! Moved home twice already with this workhorse
7. Drive can be very quiet if you're not in a rush, just road noise quite audio at times
8. Super consistent consumption even after 4yrs of driving almost 150k; Heavy footing about 20km/l or relax solo driving can achieve 26km/l
9. Not so taxi-looking VS big bro 1.8 Prius

What I do not like
1. Driver's seat not as comfy, backaches after long drive. Furthest drive to Ipoh just endure till rest stops in between. Back seats seems fine since family all doze off thru out
2. Small interior space for growing family. 1 kiddo still ok, 2nd one comes wife complains, so cannot imagine if got number 3
3. Cup holders not well designed, have to tilt drinks to insert to the cup holders so might spill a little
4. Those above 1.8m tall might be uncomfortable at driver's seat
5. Isofix design not easy to use, takes awhile to insert babyseat & will leave an obvious 'hole' at the seats when removed

Review
Absolutely love the geek factor and technologies behind this car.

As a hybrid, you save more money the more you use this car.

This car is also made in Japan, while most other Toyotas you can get from Borneo are all made in other countries.

What I like

What I do not like
Rear car door frame is a little low. Passengers may hit their head while getting in.

Review
Been driving this on and off for 2 years. It's really a good car to have when the fuel gauge moves down slowly, drive is smooth and you never get tired of its looks. Easy to manoveur with its compact sizing

Still liking this car alot despite its rivals offering newer cars with ever improving FC (almost 20km/l!)

What I like
- Good FC of 22.9km/l despite being slightly heavy-footed
- sleek design
- houses 5 adults comfortably
- pickup is acceptable
- drive is smooth; easy to manoveur around carparks
- rear leg room is acceptable

What I do not like
- really small boot space. Put in a stroller and voila. No more space.
- for the price difference between a normal car and a prius C it takes about 3 years for ROI on the price difference. Although the gap seems to be closing up..

Review
Excellent hybrid car with excellent fuel mileage. (25km/liter) on occasion able to hit 30km/liter plus I am a heavy driver, a huge fuel saver.

The interior space is spacious even more 5 full sized adults.

Extremely quiet on the road and off road.

Don't believe what the US/European reviewers says, the car is not driven on actual day to day activities

What I like
Fuel mileage and interior space and finishing

Driving on the road is very quiet. A little noisy when the radio is off but is bearable.

Very stable given its small size and get to high speed(over 90km/hr) with no vibration of vehicle.

What I do not like
Only one range selection, would be good if there is more range to select from

No power seats

Boot space is rather small for its size have to remove the interior boot cover to increase storage space

Review
With the new CEVS, this car is worth to purchase.

Same price as an Altis but uses only half the petrol.

What I like
- Good mileage of 21km/l
- Leather seating
- Strong aircon

What I do not like
- Perhaps smaller seats

Review
Hi all

I'm writing this review based on driving a Chevrolet for 5 years.
It is a great drive as I've been driving an underpower car for 5years.

It is a very smooth drive and I like the quietness when stopping at junctions.

Of cos as a hybrid car, the FC of 22km/l is unbeatable.

What I like
2015 facelifted model
Integrated touch screen GPS bluetooth and other apps..
Leather Seats
Superb FC.

What I do not like
High price because of high COE price.
Think Borneo Motors shd price it lower than an Altis to get more interest.

LTA shd also 'pressure' BM to price in the CEVS rebate if LTA really wants more green cars on our roads..

Review
1st thing I was impressed with is how slow the fuel gauge moves, the 35l tank can last me slightly more than a week! I also feel the interior and features are quite good, with leather interior and smart key, push start engine, although the price seem high but that's just because of the high COE.

What I like most is that the size is perfect for couples, whom occasionally give a ride to friends or relatives, boot space is ample with the seats down.

What I like
Exterior design don't look too funky like how hybrids use to look.
Great FC with very nice interior design.

What I do not like
Pick up is a little too slow.
