With the government recently easing up on vehicle financing loan limits, Singaporeans have rushed back into the market to purchase new cars. Even though value-for-money cars and Singapore seem like an oxymoron, we have scoured through the lists to find the best machines based on affordability. If you’ve made up your mind to buy a brand new car (although we wouldn’t understand why, when the best value-for-money secondhand cars can be found here), we’ve shortlisted five classic vehicles for different types of car buyers in Singapore:
1) For the non-fussy: Mitsubishi Attrage
Pros: The Attrage is fuel-efficient and easily manoeuvred. It is also relatively spacious for a compact car and built with comfort and durability in mind.
Cons: The Attrage is slightly lacking in power compared to its rivals.
2) For the family: Honda Vezel
Pros: The Honda Vezel stands out as a fuel-efficient and spacious machine that is decently powerful and comfortable.
Cons: With great performance at a low price-point, the Vezel is VERY common on Singapore’s roads. This might not be the car for drivers who are looking to stand out.
3) For the newlywed: Kia Forte K3
Pros: The Forte K3 is a stylish, comfortable and manoeuvrable ride that is sure to turn heads.
Cons: Some drivers might not be comfortable with this car’s light steering.
4) For the average Singaporean: Volkswagen Jetta
Pros: The Jetta looks simple yet elegant with generous boot space and responsive drive. A great balance of form and function.
Cons: The car can get a tad noisy when pushed for more power.
5) For the brand conscious: Toyota Corolla Altis
Pros: The Altis is an all-round solid car which offers stability and great fuel economy.
Cons: This car performs well across the board but there isn’t much that sets it above its rivals.
