WHAT WE LIKED It’s not a tin box. Solidly dly built, with excellent quality and reliability. y. Seven-year/unlimited d kilometres warranty. . Secure handling and comfortable, controlled ride. Spacious, stylish cabin in with comfortable seats. ats. Smooth, quiet highwayway cruising. WHAT WE DIDN’T Too expensive. Can struggle in traffic — very little torque and the four-speed auto doesn’t suit it. Slow and not that frugal. Over-assisted, vague steering at highway speeds. Navigation and connectivity didn’t work as they should in the test car. HONDAHON JAZZ VTI $116,990 A great little car, with h heaps of space, bulletproof reliability, five-star safety and responsive, frugal 1.3litre/CVT drivetrain. HYUNDAI ACCENT ACTIVEAC $16,990 Uses the same 1.4-litre engine as Rio but with a CVT. If you’re ha happy with a six-speed manual, it’s $14,990 drive-away. MAZDA2 MAXX $19,690 Good economy from 1.5-litre/six-speed auto driveline, leather trim and five star safety. Auto emergency braking a $160 option.
