Re: KIA picanto or CHEVROLET spark?

Please think carefully before getting either one of this.
If $$$ dun allow you to get a car then pls don't as both this car are problematic and dun worth your $$$ at all.

If you really need it for work(if u are in sales) then no choice but for personal pls consider better one like Honda, toyota, mitsu etc....If personal use , $$$ dun allow for all these better one then dun buy.

Re: KIA picanto or CHEVROLET spark?

this 2 car really not worth buying. I invest a little more for Honda / Toyota tbh. That is why I bought a Honda Jazz. Small fuel efficient as well.

Re: KIA picanto or CHEVROLET spark?

Temp car? is it for personal use? car easy to buy, but difficult to sell and will lose quite alot. might as well do it once and right.

They are about the same. Both are korean cars anyway so its quite hard to pick. If need to choose, i'd probably go for the picanto for its nicer look? the spark looks like the QQ, or shd be the other way around.

don't think either cars are 4 seaters also. yes they have 4 seats, but they can't really carry 4 full sized adults. at least the car won't be happy.

chev spark looks more toy than picanto leh. btw, how come chevrolet servicing expensive. it's a rebadged Daewoo = korean car, should be cheaper than jippun cars? or workshops take advantage of the chevy brand..

lol! 9mins and below is evo standard liao!

i think TS like the cute shapes of these 2 cars. if not i'd agree with u to take the bigger c.c option. underpowered cars are a pain to drive, really make blood boil.. maybe pressure only relief when pumping petrol or renewing road tax.

Re: KIA picanto or CHEVROLET spark?

Haha . .better get a car which is better since price of car DROP AND NV RISE .
once u regret ,too late liao , want to sell and buy new 1 also cannot .
Since u looking for 4 seaters de , i suppose u considering ferrying people like family members or so on , so better get higher cc de . like Avante which is really a gd choice . Drive long le u du lan , fed up and tired , more prone to accidents sia .

bernut added 2 Minutes and 31 Seconds later...

To add on , If u dn like avante , can go for Kia Cerato Forte 1.6 EX (M) .
Also 40k price range de . haha . The review i not so sure.. u have to ask those drivers in here.. im just a nub

I rather buy Suzuki cars than Hyundai and KIA cars since Suzuki cars built in Japan.
