Does it make the cut?

As per @Okiya’s post: car enthusiasts, what is your opinion of this car (RVR G grade)? It costs 1.4m. Can one get a better car for the same price?

It has some awesome looks, but we all know the best feedback is from the actual users.
So talkers, what’s your take on this RVR? How is its engine, transmission, overall ride quality etc. Is it a machine that one can depend on or does it have its downside.

Mazda Carol iko juu kushinda hiyo kitu umeweka hapa

Leta hizo specs za Mazda Caroline tuchambue…

Nunua gari. Although inanikalia gari ya wanawake…design ya dualis na vitz. Get a more masculine looking machine…outlander, cr-v, et al.

For 1.4m can one get those machines?

he he he. sikuwa nimeona ni ya khupipi wa @Okiya. in that case nunulia yeye gari…:slight_smile:

Lakini mwisho mwisho si itasonga

itasonga lakini ukitaka kuovertake kirorry kwa mlima unahitaji hesabu mob

Cons:
You better get the 2.4 litre engine with more torque and higher bhp. The allegedly 1.8 litre engine is as useless as a Vitz carrying 5 fat people overtaking three trailers going uphill .
148 bhp is what they produce, that is what entry level sedans produce…I find it rather low for a crossover. It has a rather bland driving experience;
Nothing really remarkable about this vehicle, but at an attractive price point, it is value for money (pro);
Boring four speaker audio;
Manual driver seat;
Front disks are ventilated disks which if they are the type that have holes in them, I’d advise you switch them to the normal disks, their cons are much more than the pros - durability and performance;

Pros:
Relatively good fuel economy? More or less;
The one in the picture though is an AWC type, so expect to churn out 10km/l which is decent for a crossover, since it is ex-japan, the engine condition is not as mint, so temper the numbers down to 8.5 - 9 km/l worst case scenario;
All Wheel Control - which means options to shift from 2wheel drive to 4wd with a sophisticated slip diff - competent for reasonable off-roading;
Good ground clearance suitable for Eastlands Battalion;

Objectively, this vehicle, lies at the bottom of the crossover barrel and the biggest pro is the price-point. If you believe driving is more than taking you from point A to B, look elsewhere.
