hey what’s up guys syed here and today i

0:00:18.160,0:00:22.160
am in the

0:00:18.720,0:00:25.119
2020 toyota noah 1.8 hybrid

0:00:22.160,0:00:27.199
and i have the owner uh faisal beside me

0:00:25.119,0:00:28.480
and uh he’s going to be telling us a bit

0:00:27.199,0:00:30.880
more about the car later on

0:00:28.480,0:00:33.120
so in singapore you can get the toyota

0:00:30.880,0:00:34.399
noah from parallel importers only

0:00:33.120,0:00:36.399
and there are two variants that you can

0:00:34.399,0:00:37.440
get the 1.8 hybrid which is the one we

0:00:36.399,0:00:39.520
are in today

0:00:37.440,0:00:40.800
and you also have the 2 litre non-hybrid

0:00:39.520,0:00:44.160
version and

0:00:40.800,0:00:44.960
both cars cost about 120k ish around

0:00:44.160,0:00:46.480
there

0:00:44.960,0:00:48.160
and there’s even a version that comes

0:00:46.480,0:00:50.640
with the wheelchair slope

0:00:48.160,0:00:51.199
so it’s you know quite useful well-kept

0:00:50.640,0:00:54.320
version

0:00:51.199,0:00:55.199
yeah so this toyota noaa 1.8 hybrid

0:00:54.320,0:00:58.480
comes with a

0:00:55.199,0:00:59.039
134 horsepower engine 142 newton meters

0:00:58.480,0:01:01.680
of torque

0:00:59.039,0:01:03.520
and it has the ecvt transmission and of

0:01:01.680,0:01:06.080
course it’s a front wheel drive

0:01:03.520,0:01:06.720
so this car the toyota noah is actually

0:01:06.080,0:01:08.960
positioned

0:01:06.720,0:01:10.159
below the estima in the alpha and above

0:01:08.960,0:01:12.880
the sienta

0:01:10.159,0:01:13.520
and the pricing reflects that as well

0:01:12.880,0:01:15.840
okay so

0:01:13.520,0:01:18.159
if you buy a used one you can get a

0:01:15.840,0:01:19.840
two-year-old noah for about 100k

0:01:18.159,0:01:21.439
somewhere around that range with a

0:01:19.840,0:01:24.960
debris of about between

0:01:21.439,0:01:26.640
somewhere around 10 to 12k and

0:01:24.960,0:01:28.799
if you get an alpha right an alpha

0:01:26.640,0:01:31.119
there’s a debris of 15k onwards whereas

0:01:28.799,0:01:33.600
the sienta has a debris of about

0:01:31.119,0:01:35.920
uh 8k onwards okay so the pricing of

0:01:33.600,0:01:38.079
this car is in between those two cars

0:01:35.920,0:01:39.600
and at this point some of you might be

0:01:38.079,0:01:41.360
wondering like okay there’s a toyota

0:01:39.600,0:01:43.119
noah there’s a toyota voxy and there’s

0:01:41.360,0:01:45.920
the toyota squire

0:01:43.119,0:01:47.439
all of them very similar but from my

0:01:45.920,0:01:49.360
understanding the voxi is

0:01:47.439,0:01:51.520
intended to be the sportier version of

0:01:49.360,0:01:53.920
the noaa correct and then the

0:01:51.520,0:01:54.880
luxury version of the noah is the toyota

0:01:53.920,0:01:57.280
explorer

0:01:54.880,0:02:00.079
yeah so out of all these three cars the

0:01:57.280,0:02:03.040
noaa is the cheapest at about 120k

0:02:00.079,0:02:05.680
120k ish and then uh next you have the

0:02:03.040,0:02:07.200
voxy which is about 130k onwards

0:02:05.680,0:02:09.039
and then the most expensive one is the

0:02:07.200,0:02:10.479
toyota esquire which starts at about

0:02:09.039,0:02:12.160
139k

0:02:10.479,0:02:13.760
and all these three cars again from

0:02:12.160,0:02:16.720
parallel importers

0:02:13.760,0:02:17.280
so let’s get on straight to the review

0:02:16.720,0:02:20.640
alright

0:02:17.280,0:02:23.120
so i am moving off in the toyota noaa

0:02:20.640,0:02:24.000
and our first impression is that it’s

0:02:23.120,0:02:26.959
very tall

0:02:24.000,0:02:27.760
yeah okay so uh you know faisal tell us

0:02:26.959,0:02:31.440
why did you

0:02:27.760,0:02:34.160
choose this car okay uh firstly

0:02:31.440,0:02:34.560
i’m looking for hybrid model okay uh as

0:02:34.160,0:02:37.840
a

0:02:34.560,0:02:40.400
private driver hybrid models the safe on

0:02:37.840,0:02:43.200
our battery cost is very important

0:02:40.400,0:02:44.000
especially for full time so hybrid is my

0:02:43.200,0:02:47.040
number one choice

0:02:44.000,0:02:50.400
okay then i try to shortlist a few

0:02:47.040,0:02:53.120
cars that are npv category mpv

0:02:50.400,0:02:55.040
because i want to see seven people and

0:02:53.120,0:02:58.560
furthermore my family is also big

0:02:55.040,0:03:01.440
okay uh so i was shortlisting a few

0:02:58.560,0:03:02.400
uh the alpha hybrid and vel fire hybrid

0:03:01.440,0:03:05.519
came into mind

0:03:02.400,0:03:06.959
number one but looking at the operating

0:03:05.519,0:03:10.000
costs

0:03:06.959,0:03:11.680
both are starting uh 2.4 liter

0:03:10.000,0:03:14.319
i believe they are also three liter

0:03:11.680,0:03:18.560
model 2.5 2.5 yeah 2.5

0:03:14.319,0:03:21.599
the cost itself are quite expensive yeah

0:03:18.560,0:03:24.159
so out of my budget okay then

0:03:21.599,0:03:25.840
one step below will be the toyota

0:03:24.159,0:03:29.120
triplets family which is the

0:03:25.840,0:03:30.879
voxi nova and the esquire yep yeah so

0:03:29.120,0:03:33.760
out of these three

0:03:30.879,0:03:35.680
i aim for the voxy uh my first choice

0:03:33.760,0:03:36.879
okay that’s why my wallpaper on my

0:03:35.680,0:03:40.560
android is a

0:03:36.879,0:03:43.920
voxheader okay so why why the boxy

0:03:40.560,0:03:47.440
boxy is uh it looks more sporty if the

0:03:43.920,0:03:48.239
dual led headlights yes it’s very very

0:03:47.440,0:03:51.440
nice

0:03:48.239,0:03:52.640
yeah but unfortunately uh the car agent

0:03:51.440,0:03:55.439
does not have the boxy

0:03:52.640,0:03:55.840
at the moment where i wanted to purchase

0:03:55.439,0:04:00.239
so

0:03:55.840,0:04:02.640
i fall back on the noah yeah so

0:04:00.239,0:04:03.519
here we are in the noaa so just to sum

0:04:02.640,0:04:05.200
up your

0:04:03.519,0:04:06.640
it’s because you wanted a hybrid yeah

0:04:05.200,0:04:08.080
that’s a seven seater because your

0:04:06.640,0:04:10.400
family needs correct

0:04:08.080,0:04:11.280
and uh something that’s not as expensive

0:04:10.400,0:04:14.159
as an alpha

0:04:11.280,0:04:14.799
yes correct okay so yeah these a perfect

0:04:14.159,0:04:17.680
combination

0:04:14.799,0:04:19.440
perfect combination then uh how long

0:04:17.680,0:04:22.560
have you owned the car

0:04:19.440,0:04:25.280
i collected on january this year

0:04:22.560,0:04:25.840
okay but i actually booked it in october

0:04:25.280,0:04:28.080
so

0:04:25.840,0:04:29.919
they need to ship it over right

0:04:28.080,0:04:31.600
understand so it takes a few months for

0:04:29.919,0:04:33.440
clearance whatsoever

0:04:31.600,0:04:35.120
and uh yeah i managed to collect brand

0:04:33.440,0:04:38.720
new uh in january

0:04:35.120,0:04:41.520
okay so not much of an issue it’s about

0:04:38.720,0:04:44.960
i think six or seven months old car yep

0:04:41.520,0:04:48.479
right but the mileage is 15 51

0:04:44.960,0:04:51.440
almost 52 almost 52 000 yeah because

0:04:48.479,0:04:52.160
per day i drive about 400 km per day

0:04:51.440,0:04:55.199
yeah correct

0:04:52.160,0:04:57.199
on the game 350 to 400 gm oh okay uh

0:04:55.199,0:04:59.759
the mileage will increase very fast yes

0:04:57.199,0:05:01.680
yeah speaking of uh driving a lot uh

0:04:59.759,0:05:05.360
what’s your fuel consumption like

0:05:01.680,0:05:07.600
okay for the this uh 50 liter

0:05:05.360,0:05:09.680
thing it will last me about two and a

0:05:07.600,0:05:13.600
half days

0:05:09.680,0:05:15.919
so it’s quite actually about 1000

0:05:13.600,0:05:17.520
kilometers per thing uh i don’t know

0:05:15.919,0:05:20.400
it’s that’s on paper

0:05:17.520,0:05:22.000
but mostly in particular i will reach

0:05:20.400,0:05:24.880
about 650

0:05:22.000,0:05:26.160
650 650 per tank before the red light

0:05:24.880,0:05:29.120
comes on

0:05:26.160,0:05:31.120
okay right so there’s the reserve thing

0:05:29.120,0:05:32.960
uh about 650 at most

0:05:31.120,0:05:34.400
but i thought it’s a hybrid it should

0:05:32.960,0:05:36.800
get a bit it might

0:05:34.400,0:05:38.479
go uh it might go longer but depends on

0:05:36.800,0:05:40.080
your driving style i see yours is more

0:05:38.479,0:05:43.600
city

0:05:40.080,0:05:43.919
stock stunt yes so of course it consumes

0:05:43.600,0:05:46.960
more

0:05:43.919,0:05:50.400
so that being said per um

0:05:46.960,0:05:53.440
liter how many kilometers uh let me see

0:05:50.400,0:05:58.319
what is showing around 17.9

0:05:53.440,0:06:00.400
on in the center yeah so 18.6 17

0:05:58.319,0:06:02.800
will be the range will be 16 to actually

0:06:00.400,0:06:05.759

  1. okay yeah 16 to 18

0:06:02.800,0:06:07.120
most of the time i leave it in eco mode

0:06:05.759,0:06:10.400
morning hour i

0:06:07.120,0:06:12.160
move it to power mode so i go up the

0:06:10.400,0:06:14.560
rest quite quickly i understand

0:06:12.160,0:06:16.000
yeah so to have more torque off on this

0:06:14.560,0:06:19.120
car because it’s a heavy car

0:06:16.000,0:06:21.440
your rpm need to reach about 3500

0:06:19.120,0:06:23.520
that’s when my obd comes in you can see

0:06:21.440,0:06:26.000
the rpm meter over there

0:06:23.520,0:06:27.520
okay yeah the nova doesn’t come with rpm

0:06:26.000,0:06:31.680
oh so it’s either

0:06:27.520,0:06:33.680
charging eco or pro yes power yes

0:06:31.680,0:06:34.960
okay if you don’t mind sharing with us

0:06:33.680,0:06:37.919
you know how much do you

0:06:34.960,0:06:38.319
buy the car for roughly okay initially

0:06:37.919,0:06:41.919
uh

0:06:38.319,0:06:42.720
i do not want to commit to a long-term

0:06:41.919,0:06:44.960
purchase

0:06:42.720,0:06:46.080
especially for a high ticket item yep

0:06:44.960,0:06:49.039
what i’ll do is

0:06:46.080,0:06:50.000
i’ll try it out the car uh most likely i

0:06:49.039,0:06:52.240
will rent

0:06:50.000,0:06:53.680
i’ve rented for many many years many

0:06:52.240,0:06:57.520
many cars previously

0:06:53.680,0:06:59.360
okay uh the subaru wrx the yeah honda cv

0:06:57.520,0:07:02.000
for example those four theater cars and

0:06:59.360,0:07:05.360
then for mpv this is one of it

0:07:02.000,0:07:08.560
so i’ve uh rented for a few months

0:07:05.360,0:07:10.639
and for the company they allow the

0:07:08.560,0:07:13.520
hirers to actually convert to a higher

0:07:10.639,0:07:17.120
purchase okay if you are really willing

0:07:13.520,0:07:20.319
to commit uh for long-term basis

0:07:17.120,0:07:22.400
so uh i got it in generally i

0:07:20.319,0:07:23.680
tried it out or rather i rented for

0:07:22.400,0:07:26.080
about two

0:07:23.680,0:07:28.319
and a half months okay i really like it

0:07:26.080,0:07:30.000
by much i really really like the car

0:07:28.319,0:07:31.599
so i approached the company again i said

0:07:30.000,0:07:34.560
i wanted this car so

0:07:31.599,0:07:34.880
they told me yes we have uh we will do

0:07:34.560,0:07:37.919
the

0:07:34.880,0:07:39.599
conversion for you the lta transfer fee

0:07:37.919,0:07:40.880
whatsoever all the paperwork will be

0:07:39.599,0:07:42.880
handled by the company

0:07:40.880,0:07:44.160
i do not have to do a single paperwork

0:07:42.880,0:07:46.400
okay so that is good

0:07:44.160,0:07:47.360
because they actually take care of their

0:07:46.400,0:07:49.919
uh higher risk

0:07:47.360,0:07:50.800
instead it’s a good customer service

0:07:49.919,0:07:52.720
that i want

0:07:50.800,0:07:54.160
uh but like how much do you have to fuck

0:07:52.720,0:07:56.319
out any amount or

0:07:54.160,0:07:58.240
uh no because there is no uh down

0:07:56.319,0:08:00.560
payment i’ve already made my deposit

0:07:58.240,0:08:02.400
when i initially collected the car okay

0:08:00.560,0:08:05.680
yeah so the deposit remains

0:08:02.400,0:08:08.000
okay and the balance of the down payment

0:08:05.680,0:08:09.919
what they will do for me is that i will

0:08:08.000,0:08:13.360
just continue to drive from them

0:08:09.919,0:08:17.120
and the amount that i paid them monthly

0:08:13.360,0:08:20.879
will uh is for the down payment first

0:08:17.120,0:08:24.000
after i finish the down payment then the

0:08:20.879,0:08:27.280
actual transfer ownership will happen

0:08:24.000,0:08:30.319
okay yeah so it’s very uh seamless okay

0:08:27.280,0:08:32.560
and they referred it to me

0:08:30.319,0:08:34.959
after six months depreciation they six

0:08:32.560,0:08:38.719
they resell it to me at 94

0:08:34.959,0:08:41.760

  1. okay yes so um

0:08:38.719,0:08:43.519
i believe is quite a good deal

0:08:41.760,0:08:47.440
a good deal so if i were to break down

0:08:43.519,0:08:50.399
the corsa to me it’s about 72.86 per day

0:08:47.440,0:08:52.240
as compared to if i were to rent or if

0:08:50.399,0:08:54.399
anyone would were to rent this car

0:08:52.240,0:08:55.920
it would be three three thousand three

0:08:54.399,0:08:57.519
zero three zero per month

0:08:55.920,0:08:59.839
or three thousand a month correct three

0:08:57.519,0:09:01.680
thousand percent yeah quite expensive

0:08:59.839,0:09:03.120
that is inclusive of road tech servicing

0:09:01.680,0:09:05.120
everything okay yeah

0:09:03.120,0:09:07.200
so for me if i were to go for a long

0:09:05.120,0:09:09.760
term i would rather to purchase the car

0:09:07.200,0:09:11.040
it’s more cost saving yep yes so we’ve

0:09:09.760,0:09:14.240
owned this car for about

0:09:11.040,0:09:16.720
six uh sorry eight months around yeah

0:09:14.240,0:09:18.160
so how has your ownership experience

0:09:16.720,0:09:21.040
been for you

0:09:18.160,0:09:23.440
you’ve put a lot of you know mileage on

0:09:21.040,0:09:25.440
the car so you know i think you are

0:09:23.440,0:09:27.040
you have your experience in this car

0:09:25.440,0:09:30.320
okay what’s your impression

0:09:27.040,0:09:31.760
uh being a toyota brand is reliable

0:09:30.320,0:09:32.399
that’s why number one i choose this

0:09:31.760,0:09:34.320
toyota

0:09:32.399,0:09:36.399
okay whenever you want to get spare

0:09:34.320,0:09:38.320
parts they will be

0:09:36.399,0:09:40.000
readily available they will not be that

0:09:38.320,0:09:42.480
expensive i believe

0:09:40.000,0:09:43.680
the most expensive item should be the

0:09:42.480,0:09:46.080
hybrid battery yes

0:09:43.680,0:09:46.880
but it’s about close to eight ten years

0:09:46.080,0:09:49.519
then you have to remember

0:09:46.880,0:09:50.800
uh yes got it got it so any idea how

0:09:49.519,0:09:52.640
much it costs

0:09:50.800,0:09:54.560
from what i checked around huh a hybrid

0:09:52.640,0:09:57.200
battery with about 3k

0:09:54.560,0:09:57.760
okay 10 years then you replace it yeah

0:09:57.200,0:10:00.880
correct

0:09:57.760,0:10:02.399
correct so uh if it lasts me during the

0:10:00.880,0:10:05.839
duration during the

0:10:02.399,0:10:09.040
duration of the vehicle not too bad so

0:10:05.839,0:10:12.000
yeah other than that um

0:10:09.040,0:10:12.959
just a few weeks back actually when i

0:10:12.000,0:10:14.640
was driving

0:10:12.959,0:10:16.320
moving off from a traffic light there

0:10:14.640,0:10:18.320
was knocking sound

0:10:16.320,0:10:20.399
coming coming from the left okay and the

0:10:18.320,0:10:21.760
right door okay initially it was very

0:10:20.399,0:10:24.720
soft

0:10:21.760,0:10:25.680
then subsequently yeah it became more

0:10:24.720,0:10:28.880
and more apparent

0:10:25.680,0:10:29.519
okay up to when you are moving up the

0:10:28.880,0:10:32.000
hammer

0:10:29.519,0:10:34.000
and going down the hump you will hear so

0:10:32.000,0:10:35.279
i thought it was a suspension yeah but

0:10:34.000,0:10:38.000
then again

0:10:35.279,0:10:38.399
nuka how can the suspension that’s true

0:10:38.000,0:10:40.720
well

0:10:38.399,0:10:41.440
you know where it cannot be right yeah

0:10:40.720,0:10:43.760
and then i

0:10:41.440,0:10:45.440
researched online uh some for them some

0:10:43.760,0:10:46.399
people said it was actually the sliding

0:10:45.440,0:10:49.519
door

0:10:46.399,0:10:52.560
so okay yeah a mechanism broke off or

0:10:49.519,0:10:54.399
uh no there’s a mechanism uh alignment

0:10:52.560,0:10:55.839
like many issues alignment issue due to

0:10:54.399,0:10:58.320
the railing or whatsoever

0:10:55.839,0:10:59.519
okay so i visited the workshop which i

0:10:58.320,0:11:01.600
normally do the servicing

0:10:59.519,0:11:02.640
okay the technician even brought out for

0:11:01.600,0:11:05.600
a test drive with me

0:11:02.640,0:11:06.800
okay but the fault did not occur yes

0:11:05.600,0:11:09.519
usually

0:11:06.800,0:11:12.000
yeah so i was quite peace yeah i told

0:11:09.519,0:11:16.000
him yes there is really a

0:11:12.000,0:11:18.000
sound coming in unfortunately my

0:11:16.000,0:11:19.040
uh car camera did not record the sound

0:11:18.000,0:11:21.839
ah okay

0:11:19.040,0:11:23.120
it wasn’t that loud you know but it

0:11:21.839,0:11:25.680
occurred again so i

0:11:23.120,0:11:26.800
searched through some facebook pages

0:11:25.680,0:11:28.959
then finally

0:11:26.800,0:11:30.160
i found someone who had a solution okay

0:11:28.959,0:11:33.200
it was actually

0:11:30.160,0:11:35.839
the three hinge that the

0:11:33.200,0:11:38.079
the sliding door aligns with the door

0:11:35.839,0:11:40.000
with the car door frame itself

0:11:38.079,0:11:42.399
so these three hinge they need to

0:11:40.000,0:11:42.959
tighten every now and then for example

0:11:42.399,0:11:44.800
every

0:11:42.959,0:11:46.320
two or three months uh you need to

0:11:44.800,0:11:47.760
tighten using a spanner

0:11:46.320,0:11:50.240
you can do it yourself yeah you can do

0:11:47.760,0:11:51.920
yourself with diy so i got myself a

0:11:50.240,0:11:57.040
spanner

0:11:51.920,0:11:59.120
size 10 i tightened the bolts done

0:11:57.040,0:12:00.639
so that’s why you see uh now our roads

0:11:59.120,0:12:03.120
are quite quite uneven

0:12:00.639,0:12:04.800
yeah you can hear it’s very silent ah

0:12:03.120,0:12:05.519
there’s no sound yeah but after few

0:12:04.800,0:12:07.920
months uh

0:12:05.519,0:12:08.880
how i i’m not sure how the thing can go

0:12:07.920,0:12:10.880
off alignment

0:12:08.880,0:12:12.320
you need to tighten it again but maybe

0:12:10.880,0:12:13.040
because you also a lot of passengers

0:12:12.320,0:12:15.920
come in and now

0:12:13.040,0:12:17.680
correct yes the day the door opens up

0:12:15.920,0:12:21.839
and down is about 40 50

0:12:17.680,0:12:23.760
times yeah yes i mean a small

0:12:21.839,0:12:25.120
small uh inconvenience that is more

0:12:23.760,0:12:27.519
inconvenient yeah

0:12:25.120,0:12:29.279
so speaking of that uh you know uh can

0:12:27.519,0:12:30.639
you tell us what do you like about this

0:12:29.279,0:12:34.000
car

0:12:30.639,0:12:34.880
okay it’s very spacious yes very very

0:12:34.000,0:12:38.160
specifically i’m gonna

0:12:34.880,0:12:40.800
try sit in the back yeah sure no problem

0:12:38.160,0:12:41.360
leg room for the front for the middle

0:12:40.800,0:12:45.440
row

0:12:41.360,0:12:48.320
is a very lengthy even for a guy who is

0:12:45.440,0:12:51.279
maybe 1.7

0:12:48.320,0:12:51.920
i i i feed a lot of ammos at the back as

0:12:51.279,0:12:53.839
well at the

0:12:51.920,0:12:55.279
restaurant no problem yeah you just need

0:12:53.839,0:12:58.320
to slide your

0:12:55.279,0:13:00.880
seats accordingly just accordingly okay

0:12:58.320,0:13:01.680
even so the middle row there will still

0:13:00.880,0:13:04.079
be enough

0:13:01.680,0:13:04.959
legroom for the passengers so there is

0:13:04.079,0:13:08.160
no problem

0:13:04.959,0:13:08.720
okay and if you were to sit fit uh seven

0:13:08.160,0:13:10.880
people

0:13:08.720,0:13:12.480
or other six passengers you still have

0:13:10.880,0:13:14.320
some luggage space

0:13:12.480,0:13:15.680
to fit at the back of course you

0:13:14.320,0:13:20.399
couldn’t fit four

0:13:15.680,0:13:24.000
for nothing but medium suitcases will be

0:13:20.399,0:13:26.399
not an issue yeah yeah yeah

0:13:24.000,0:13:27.279
practicality is there okay and of course

0:13:26.399,0:13:29.680
it’s a hybrid

0:13:27.279,0:13:30.880
yeah that’s what i’m looking for yeah

0:13:29.680,0:13:34.560
yeah so

0:13:30.880,0:13:37.040
uh it’s cost saving for the fuel

0:13:34.560,0:13:38.399
uh the car itself is not that expensive

0:13:37.040,0:13:41.360
to maintain

0:13:38.399,0:13:42.399
and practicality isn’t it okay yes okay

0:13:41.360,0:13:43.760
so uh

0:13:42.399,0:13:46.079
do you mind sharing like what

0:13:43.760,0:13:48.800
modifications you’ve done to this car

0:13:46.079,0:13:49.360
mostly is aesthetics looks i think uh i

0:13:48.800,0:13:51.920
do not

0:13:49.360,0:13:53.440
touch any on the performance yeah

0:13:51.920,0:13:55.440
because i do not want

0:13:53.440,0:13:57.120
my you you increase the performance

0:13:55.440,0:13:58.800
performance but your

0:13:57.120,0:14:01.360
what we call your fuel consumption goes

0:13:58.800,0:14:03.040
down correct

0:14:01.360,0:14:05.120
correct yeah that’s not my target in the

0:14:03.040,0:14:07.440
first place so i want my passengers to

0:14:05.120,0:14:09.360
be in a very nice cabin in a comfortable

0:14:07.440,0:14:12.959
cabin yup so i touched

0:14:09.360,0:14:15.920
mostly on the cabin uh and the

0:14:12.959,0:14:16.800
sound uh i i needed a few lightings led

0:14:15.920,0:14:19.440
lightings

0:14:16.800,0:14:20.720
at the front grill uh there’s led

0:14:19.440,0:14:24.560
lightings in the

0:14:20.720,0:14:26.880
foot foot area front and the middle row

0:14:24.560,0:14:28.639
there’s led lightings at the side of the

0:14:26.880,0:14:31.920
door

0:14:28.639,0:14:33.199
led is my favorite so a lot

0:14:31.920,0:14:35.120
even the even the champion lights have

0:14:33.199,0:14:37.519
changed to led white

0:14:35.120,0:14:38.160
yeah so is this a standard this

0:14:37.519,0:14:41.279
infotainment

0:14:38.160,0:14:45.199
no this is uh the original one is uh

0:14:41.279,0:14:48.240
by soul pioneer six inch typical turret

0:14:45.199,0:14:50.560
yeah 0.6 inch it’s very very small okay

0:14:48.240,0:14:51.680
so uh uh if you change to aftermarket uh

0:14:50.560,0:14:55.040
10.1 inch

0:14:51.680,0:14:57.040
this is that yes android okay yeah and

0:14:55.040,0:14:58.160
there’s a jbl subwoofer underneath the

0:14:57.040,0:15:01.120
driver’s seat

0:14:58.160,0:15:02.000
250 what jbs are over okay yes correct

0:15:01.120,0:15:04.639
interesting

0:15:02.000,0:15:05.519
so what do you dislike about this toyota

0:15:04.639,0:15:09.040
noir

0:15:05.519,0:15:11.680
okay um when i viewed the car firstly

0:15:09.040,0:15:13.519
when i got it from the side side profile

0:15:11.680,0:15:16.079
15 inch limbs

0:15:13.519,0:15:17.199
i really hate small rims it doesn’t look

0:15:16.079,0:15:19.199
good on a big car

0:15:17.199,0:15:20.480
especially on the big car like this the

0:15:19.199,0:15:24.800
minimum you should get

0:15:20.480,0:15:27.120
at least a 17 you know 17 inches

0:15:24.800,0:15:28.720
i will be changing that uh not anytime

0:15:27.120,0:15:29.279
soon maybe but subsequently i will be

0:15:28.720,0:15:31.120
changing yeah

0:15:29.279,0:15:32.560
consumption is going to be affected uh

0:15:31.120,0:15:34.959
correct correct so i need to balance

0:15:32.560,0:15:37.680
between a 16 inch or maybe a 17.

0:15:34.959,0:15:38.639
so right i’ll try nice on the original

0:15:37.680,0:15:40.959
15

0:15:38.639,0:15:40.959
yes

0:15:41.920,0:15:47.199
other than the ring size um that the the

0:15:45.120,0:15:49.920
third row sits

0:15:47.199,0:15:51.040
if you need to fold it up to have more

0:15:49.920,0:15:52.839
luggage space

0:15:51.040,0:15:54.480
your second row you need to push it in

0:15:52.839,0:15:56.639
front yeah

0:15:54.480,0:15:57.839
if you slide the second row all the way

0:15:56.639,0:16:00.160
back

0:15:57.839,0:16:02.160
so you have the maximum leg room for

0:16:00.160,0:16:03.600
your passengers okay you cannot fold up

0:16:02.160,0:16:04.320
your turbo seats you cannot go all the

0:16:03.600,0:16:08.240
way up

0:16:04.320,0:16:09.600
understand yeah so um because

0:16:08.240,0:16:11.759
you want to compromise you have to

0:16:09.600,0:16:14.160
compromise like this okay but it’s just

0:16:11.759,0:16:14.880
like inconvenience yeah what about the

0:16:14.160,0:16:17.120
performance

0:16:14.880,0:16:19.040
how how would you rate the performance

0:16:17.120,0:16:22.240
of this car is it powerful enough

0:16:19.040,0:16:26.720
do you feel like you need more power

0:16:22.240,0:16:30.160
it’s not it’s not a v6

0:16:26.720,0:16:32.000
so it’s only 1.8 uh i i hope

0:16:30.160,0:16:34.720
that when i got this car previously yeah

0:16:32.000,0:16:36.639
it was a 2.0 it should be a 2.0

0:16:34.720,0:16:39.040
because with full load you need to rev

0:16:36.639,0:16:40.320
more but like now there’s only two of us

0:16:39.040,0:16:40.959
that you can try driving okay there’s a

0:16:40.320,0:16:42.720
pickup

0:16:40.959,0:16:44.000
you know okay there’s a pickup when it’s

0:16:42.720,0:16:46.399
about 3000 rpm

0:16:44.000,0:16:47.920
not too bad but then it’s a full load

0:16:46.399,0:16:49.279
it’s quite difficult

0:16:47.920,0:16:52.399
yeah let’s say you know somebody is

0:16:49.279,0:16:55.680
looking to get a foxy or noah or

0:16:52.399,0:16:58.959
squire do you have any advice for them

0:16:55.680,0:16:59.680
okay uh if you’re looking for an abv

0:16:58.959,0:17:02.399
that has

0:16:59.680,0:17:04.000
a lot of space but at the same time you

0:17:02.399,0:17:07.120
want it to be fuel and efficient

0:17:04.000,0:17:08.799
yeah you can have a look at this car you

0:17:07.120,0:17:11.120
need to see the car yourself

0:17:08.799,0:17:12.000
then you would know uh how many

0:17:11.120,0:17:14.480
passengers

0:17:12.000,0:17:16.000
that can comfortably sit at the back and

0:17:14.480,0:17:20.000
then at the same time

0:17:16.000,0:17:23.280
if you have luggages how many luggages

0:17:20.000,0:17:26.400
do you have yeah it’s really

0:17:23.280,0:17:29.840
comfortable to sit in leather seats

0:17:26.400,0:17:32.799
you know and you’re able to

0:17:29.840,0:17:33.280
customize the seating arrangement at the

0:17:32.799,0:17:34.640
back

0:17:33.280,0:17:36.480
at the middle actually we can see three

0:17:34.640,0:17:37.919
people okay yeah i might be able to demo

0:17:36.480,0:17:38.240
later on how you can see three people

0:17:37.919,0:17:41.200
sure

0:17:38.240,0:17:42.799
yeah it’s very customizable have you uh

0:17:41.200,0:17:44.799
driven the sienta before

0:17:42.799,0:17:47.520
oh yes correct the prior to this car was

0:17:44.799,0:17:47.520
the junta

0:17:57.600,0:18:02.480
so do not expect to be very spacious be

0:18:00.799,0:18:06.080
it the last row

0:18:02.480,0:18:08.400
or the middle row the last row adults

0:18:06.080,0:18:09.200
will not be able to fit in comfortably

0:18:08.400,0:18:11.520
trust me

0:18:09.200,0:18:12.400
it’s meant for kids yeah it’s meant for

0:18:11.520,0:18:15.280
kids

0:18:12.400,0:18:16.720
so if your efficiency and performance uh

0:18:15.280,0:18:19.760
performance-wise

0:18:16.720,0:18:22.400
none at all at all

0:18:19.760,0:18:23.520
uh my previous car was the petrol

0:18:22.400,0:18:26.880
version not the hybrid

0:18:23.520,0:18:29.600
at one point 1.5

0:18:26.880,0:18:32.000
so uh so fuel economy for the height for

0:18:29.600,0:18:34.720
the petrol version was

0:18:32.000,0:18:36.080
10.1 to 11. that’s not very good yeah

0:18:34.720,0:18:37.919
it’s not very good

0:18:36.080,0:18:39.520
yeah that’s not very good uh for the

0:18:37.919,0:18:40.240
hybrid version i felt not tested

0:18:39.520,0:18:43.280
previous

0:18:40.240,0:18:44.400
my own self but i believe it might it

0:18:43.280,0:18:46.240
might increase a bit

0:18:44.400,0:18:47.679
you know it might increase a bit but

0:18:46.240,0:18:49.200
yeah so in terms of the

0:18:47.679,0:18:50.960
because this car is more expensive than

0:18:49.200,0:18:54.000
the sienta do you think it’s

0:18:50.960,0:18:57.039
worth the money you know okay uh

0:18:54.000,0:18:58.799
if you have a small family

0:18:57.039,0:19:00.480
santa is okay you can consider the

0:18:58.799,0:19:03.919
center small family

0:19:00.480,0:19:04.720
meaning you have four to five persons at

0:19:03.919,0:19:06.720
most

0:19:04.720,0:19:07.840
but you want to do some shopping you

0:19:06.720,0:19:10.880
want to store some

0:19:07.840,0:19:13.120
some stuff more okay the sienta

0:19:10.880,0:19:14.880
is comes with foldable seats as well

0:19:13.120,0:19:15.520
okay uh you were able to get some boot

0:19:14.880,0:19:18.240
space

0:19:15.520,0:19:19.120
okay so but if you have more than five

0:19:18.240,0:19:23.679
people

0:19:19.120,0:19:26.799
okay six seven like this

0:19:23.679,0:19:28.000
is very tight for you so a car like this

0:19:26.799,0:19:29.760
would be more suitable

0:19:28.000,0:19:31.039
i understand anything else you want to
