There are many reasons not to miss the annual Singapore Motor Show, the crucial one being the deals offered. Here are the eight best buys you should consider.

11 Jan 2019

'Singapore Motor Show! Singapore Motor Show!' - anyone who watches the local television channels will probably have this catchy advertisement ingrained into their minds whenever the Singapore Motor Show season comes around.

A good way to start the new year is to visit the Singapore Motor Show located at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre and enjoy the sights of the countless stunning new cars. An even better way to do it is to buy a brand new car and start impressing your family and friends with your cool new ride. And what better place is there to do so than at the motor show where you can bag plenty of attractive deals and spectacular offers.

Here are eight cars that we think are the best buys at this year's Singapore Motor Show.

The simple Nissan Note sports a handsome design that makes it a desirable hatchback
1. Hatchback - Nissan Note

The Nissan Note features a sophisticated and sporty exterior, making it a handsome little hatchback. While the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine only produces a paltry 78bhp, disqualifying it as a enthusiast-oriented hot hatch, its amazing fuel economy of 20km/L makes it one of the best choice for a city runabout.

Prices for the Nissan Note 1.2 LITE begin at $68,300* at this motor show, inclusive of a $10,000 VES rebate.

To further sweeten the deal, Nissan is offering exciting promotions such as free servicing up to 50,000km and additional discount for trade in cars.

Hyundai's hot hatch is made to deliver the best driving experience at a budget
2. Performance Hatchback - Hyundai i30 N

Hyundai's first high-performance car under the N lineup, is also one of the hottest hatch you can buy at the Singapore Motor Show 2019. The i30 N has been developed to deliver maximum driving experience in an accessible package. With a 2.0-litre four-cylinder T-GDI turbo engine that delivers 247bhp, it surely packs the punch to match its aggressive styling.

In short, the i30 N is an everyday sports car that is suitable for daily driving, and it undoubtedly excite you on the track.

Starting in at $146,999* the i30 N is a lot of car for the money, and also one of the lowest priced in its class.

The Attrage is one of the most affordable car in the market
3. Compact Sedan - Mitsubishi Attrage

The winner of our Compact Sedan of The Year in 2015 and 2016, there is no doubt that the Mitsubishi Attrage is an excellent choice for a car of its kind. Despite its compact exterior, the Attrage feels surprisingly spacious inside, with enough room in the back for three adults.

Perhaps, its most impressive feature is the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine that is able to achieve an excellent fuel efficiency of 20.4km/L , which translate to much savings in the long run.

Prices for the Attrage 1.2L begin at $58,999* at this motor show, inclusive of a $10,000 VES rebate.

The comfortably sized Octavia RS245 offers the cheapest horsepower
4. Performance Sedan - Skoda Octavia RS245

If you have read our recent article on the Cars with the cheapest horsepower in Singapore, you will know that the Skoda Octavia RS245 is currently the car that offers the most value-for-money horsepower.

The Octavia RS245 has a comfortably sized interior that will sit five occupants with ease while packing a generously sized 590 litres boot. The RS245 makes 241bhp, which is more than twice of what its 1.0-litre counterpart makes - its prowess is clear for all to see.

The Skoda Octavia RS245 is priced at $126,900* at this motor show, with a neutral VES band.

Elegant design with a luxurious interior at an attractive price point, the Passat is a quintessential executive sedan
5. Executive Sedan - Volkswagen Passat Comfortline

Sleek, sporty and classy are probably the best words to describe the striking looks of the Volkswagen Passat.

Sitting in the Passat, you find yourself surrounded by a luxurious cabin with impeccable fit and finish. Above all, the knobs and panels are all positioned to ergonomical perfection. If these features are not enough to convince you, the jaw-dropping discount of $24,000 off its usual price tag at this motor show will surely seal the deal.

The Volkswagen Passat Comfortline 1.8 TSI is priced at $129,400* at this motor show, with a neutral VES band.

The all new Stonic is an impressionable crossover with 29 colours to choose from
6. Compact SUV - Kia Stonic

The latest addition to Kia's range of cars is the Stonic, a brand new crossover. Bearing some resemblance with the Audi Q2, the Stonic's quirky plastic grille highlights the fun, playful design of the car - it is available in a whopping 29 different colours!

While it isn't insanely powerful, the turbocharged 1.0-litre engine provides sufficient power and torque for the Stonic. Coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that shifts smoothly and effectively, the Stonic has an undoubtedly pleasant powertrain.

Prices for the all new Kia Stonic begins at $74,999* at this motor show, inclusive of a $10,000 VES rebate.

Sharp and classy looks give the Lexus NX an unmistakeable presence
7. Luxury Compact SUV - Lexus NX300

In line with the rest of Lexus' lineup, the NX300 has the corporate face with a spindle grille, and an air of class all around it, and an avant garde presence that is simply unmistakeable. While the NX sports some plastic bits on the centre console and glove compartment, the sense of luxury is clearly present.

The good looks of the NX300 and its spacious cabin will surely fit your needs, and at Singapore Motor Show 2019, discounts of as much as $25,000 is offered, which make the NX an extraordinarily good deal.

Prices of the Lexus NX300 begin at $184,800* at this motor show, inclusive of a $10,000 VES Surcharge.

The Prius+ Hybrid's long wheelbase translates to more legroom while the hybdrid drivetrain offers exemplary fuel efficiency
8. Hybrid - Toyota Prius+

The Prius+ has a longer wheelbase than the popular Toyota Wish MPV, which translates to more legroom for the occupants, ensuring a comfortable ride. With an interior design that has been carried over from the Prius hatchback, controls are straightforward and easy to use.

With a hybrid powertrain, the 1.8-litre engine in the Prius+ delivers power efficiently and linearly while sipping on fuel to achieve an amazing 25.6km/L fuel consumption.

The Prius+ Hybrid is priced at $118,988* at this motor show, inclusive of a $10,000 VES rebate. Apart from this, Toyota's motor show promotions includes a year of road tax, three years of servicing and $1,000 NTUC vouchers for all CAT B cars purchased (while stocks last).
