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.
