Review
I have been driving the petrol variant version for 1 year now.

Love the lively pickup and eagerness of the engine to perform. Stiff body, which makes cornering respectable despite its high roof.

Someone claimed that it cannot outrun a Mitsubishi Attrage. I find it so odd. I drove my family of 4 adults and I find absolutely no problem overtaking cars on the expressway.

What I like
Everything. It is a full featured car, minus the cruise control.

What I do not like
No cruise control!
Auto start stop!

Review
Was initially hesitant that the car might not be sufficiently powered given the low horse power compared even to 1.6 lit sedans. I was surprised as it had no problem even with 7 adults especially when you go into Sports mode! No problems with overtaking at all. Nice drive and very responsive. As a previous contributor said, the Eco mode is useless, stayed on Comfort mode suffice. I use it more as a 5 person carrier with occasional 2 extras.

What I like
- The initial acceleration is great to get off the traffic lights!
- The back shade to cover the boot when last 2 seats are not used can be kept neatly tucked away instead of having to store it at home.
- The voice activated services is great!
- Remote ventilation of vehicle, useful prior to getting into car that was parked in hot sun.
- auto tailgate
- auto parallel park
- decent fuel consumption for a MPV

What I do not like
- no auto folding of mirror
- external noise is a little like diesel engine but once inside, it can't be heard.
- the seatbelt for 2nd row middle seat do not have anchor point for the shoulder making it a little annoying.
- the onboard map guidance could be better though the heavy traffic warning is good.

Review
I like continental cars. I was looking for a car that occasionally can carry 7. This one fits into my requirements. I am enjoying the drive. Everything is good about this car. Second row passengers enjoy the comfort for sure as my family describes their experience compared to previous MPV.

There are big blind spots on both front corners. One need to get used to them. I drive in 'comfort' mode when i am alone but need to shift to 'sports' mode when driving with family of four. 'Eco' mode is useless.

What I like
Solid bold looks
Interior is modern and spacious compared to a sedan but smaller than other huge MPVs
Comfortable ride for the driver
Second row seats are super comfortable
Fuel consumption is acceptable
Driving in 'sports' mode

What I do not like
Driving in 'comfort' mode with 4 persons
Driving in 'eco' mode even when i am alone
Big blind spot on both front corner can be annoying initially.

Review
Collected my 216i GT Luxury Trim 2 Weeks back. I’m loving the drive.

Needed an occasional 7 seater and decided to get a MPV. Was sad to let go of my Toyota Harrier. Test drive the following MPV - Renault Scenic, VW Touran, Honda Jade & Odyssey, Kia Carens.

The handling and drive comes out joint top with Jade. I was surprised. Considering the horse power is low. But hey. You can only hit the max horse power is only at 4500 rpm. It’s similar for all of the vehicles. Torque is more important on Singapore road. And the max torque came at 1200 rpm.

Interior Wise. It has all the features that you need. Very functional storage. USB connections. Scenic has more futuristic design.

Space Wise. Odyssey beats all hands down on the space. But it’s a full size MPV. Whereas Jade does not fulfil the 7 person carrier due to the sitting arrangements. I would need the 7 seats 5-10% Of the time. BMW GT, Touran and Scenic has around similar leg room.

Looks Wise. It’s subjective. Beauty lies in the eye of beholder. Lol. BMW GT was my favorite followed by Jade.

I would encourage those looking for a MPV at this price range. Go for a test drive. Watch the YouTube reviews. Read the professional driver reviews.

What I like
As per above.

In addition, I got 5 years servicing and warranty. The Premium price includes the 5 years free servicing. From my calculation, it’s around 30% margin. It’s higher than all of the other MPVs. But it’s a Premium brand over the others.

I’m quietly confident with it’s proven 6 Speed Aisin GB and B38 engine. Beats waiting under the hot sun at the road side with a 7 Speed DXX.

What I do not like
PML pamper the customers during the car collection. The feeling is just different. You pay a premium for it. You get the returns. Feel like going down the red carpet again... Lol.

Review
The 1.5 litre engine is so unrefined and so weak that a mitsubishi attrage can smoke u when the car is fully packed. FYI fully packed means 4+1 not 7 seater, last two seats as good as non existent, middle seat is hard and not meant to be sat on , at most put child seats , poor sound insulation,handling not bad though

What I like
price,129k

What I do not like
EVERYTHING IS BAD, worse than a proton exora
