Review
Good performance for a small CC car that gave you the feel of pickup that you need at any point in time.

You will never feel inferior to the performance of any big CC NA car, 0 -100 is less than about 9sec, and fuel consumption is estimated at 30litres for an average of 430km in the urban drive condition for my past driving of 1.5 years.

No regret but, of course, you can't expect the level of comfort to compete with the bigger SUV or luxury sedan.

One of the best-selling models in Japan and I like this car because it is directly imported from Japan and not Thailand-made. The resale value was good and what[s important - the brand is Toyota

What I like
Smart, Simple and spacious for a small CC car, 4 adults with 1 kid is very comfortable and you won't feel the lack of performance with a full load.

The turbo is there for a reason and maintenance-wise, not troublesome and economy, instead of every 10000km send for servicing, maybe to give some allowance for the ease of mind, cultivate the good practice to service at every 8000km with the recommended fully synthetic engine oil.

What I do not like
The model should come with the option to have a sunroof and original body kits from Japan and bigger specs of sport rims.

The interior can be improved with factory fitted ambience lights and D cut steering

Review
I have just collected my New Raize last Friday and have been driving for the past 2 days. I must admit I was quite sceptical on this 1 litre turbo engine although I was previously driving an Audi Q2 which was also 1 litre turbo. But however, after driving for 2 days I was quite amazed by the engine power and it takes no effort to pick up speed on the road putting others behind this little monster. Looking forward to the power after break-in !!! Note: I was driving with 3 big adults and it can still take no effort..

Let's get one thing out of the way, this car is no Mercedes or a Jaguar. But this car is leaps and bounds ahead of its competitor cars like the Mitsubishi Attrage or even the Honda Jaaz in terms of comfort, space, mileage, and pickup.
The little 1L engine on paper fools everyone who reads it but once you step on the accelerator peddle the car's D-CVT gearbox shows its magic. In the first 0 to 30 kmph it behaves like a conventional torque converter gearbox and then the CVT kicks in, giving the car an acceleration of 0-90 in just 12 sec (tested practically)
I have owned this car now for almost 11 months and it has never disappointed me in terms of performance, space, and overall comfort.

What I like
1. Acceleration 0-90 in just 12 sec
2. Millage 16-18 Km/L
3. Responsive D-CVT gearbox
4. Exterior Looks
5. Good Road Visibility
6. Huge Boot Space
7. Value for money

What I do not like
1. A bit noisy engine @ 3000-3500 RPM range
2. Plasticky interior
3. Lack of higher-spec variants

Review
Ah, the PIs have brought in another interesting JDM recently. One of Japan's bestsellers. The Toyota Raize.

I'm leasing one over the year, with much of it being spent driven around as a private-hire vehicle.

It makes for a good conversation starter in the carparks. But, that's as good as it gets. You get to see the points below.

What I like
- DCVT
With the DCVT, there's some saving grace to a ride that's already awful to begin with. Adds a little fun factor.

- Good fuel economy.
I get between 15 to 17.7km/l. 60/40. Don't mind the noisy 3 cyl. engine.

- Surprisingly good storage.
I can fit a wheelchair in the boot in an upright position, thanks to the hidden compartment under the boot floorboard. Also, lots of cubbyholes. The glovebox acts as an inter-dimensional portal, where items just disappear/teleport into the A/C filter area.

- Reverse cam
Adding a reverse cam to a small car that's easy to park. That's a super-win.

- Parking side mirrors
So you don't bua the corners. Very helpful if you seem to keep towards the left on the lane on the expressways. The motorcyclists will definitely be appreciating these.

What I do not like
-Super light body
Strong gusts of wind may rock the vehicle on the expressway.

-Harsh ride
Comparable to a 10 footer lorry. Dampeners, softer suspension setup required. Some popping feel when going over humps.

- Ridiculous amounts of road noise
It's just bad. Really bad.

-No multifunction steering wheel
Unless you get the G spec model I think. Getting the X model is a waste of your credit worthiness and money.
