Honda Stream vs Toyota

Several months ago, I was at Leng Kee to look the Honda and Toyota Wish. Having so many horror stories parallel importers, I prefer to with the authorized agents. At time, Borneo Motors had started to bring in the Toyota Kah Motors had been selling the Stream for a while. It was a good to start researching the two car models.

The Stream, I felt was a little then. With Borneo introducing the Wish, I imagine would be some pressure on Kah to bring down the Stream’s It turned out not to have any impact. But with declining COE prices what more with the crash of COE prices), things are to look better now.

Many years ago when I was in the for a new car, I was looking at the Mitsubishi Plus and Honda Jazz. I a hatchback car for more flexible space configuration. Alas, I up with a Toyota Altis, both the Colt Plus and were not terribly good (in my opinion), and shockingly the Toyota turned out to be pretty good good price, and all-around value for money. (I say “shockingly” I never had very good of Toyota’s Corolla line.) At time, the Stream was ugly, and was no Wish (from Borneo

So anyway, now my interest is roused with the Stream and Wish. are both quite comparable MPVs. Both are 3-row, 7 1.8L engine, and very size. Here’s my quick run of their more “objective”

The Stream has a better engine. The engine does 103kW at and 174Nm at 4300rpm, while the does 97kW at 6000rpm and at 4200rpm. The Stream’s engine is to be more hi-tech.

The Stream has automatic transmission. The Stream a 5-speed automatic transmission, the Wish has a 4-speed automatic At highway speeds of 100km/h, the engine runs at 400rpm than the Wish’s. Usually, RPM means more fuel

The Stream’s third row is more The Stream’s internal width in the row is 990mm, while the Wish’s is Passenger’s feet in the third row rest flat on the floor in the which makes the traveling more uncomfortable. Access to the row is easier on the Stream with the to fold away the second row on the seat shoulder.

The Stream has brakes. They both ventilated disc brakes in the But while the Stream has disc for the back, the Wish only drum brakes at the back. of the braking force is provided by the so the difference may not be terribly significant. But for the safety, disc brakes all is definitely better. They nicer too.

The Stream is more fuel The stated 10-15 mode consumption for the Stream is 14.8km/l, and for the Wish. Fuel efficiency on many other factors and overall tends to be a very number to reliably pin down in world driving conditions, so I’m not how much to believe these as being objective.

The Wish less upfront to buy. The price already has “everything” in (or can be bargained for): fog lights, body kit, scuff etc.

The in-house finance for Wish has a lower interest The package from Borneo has a 1.99% interest rate, it is 2.2% from Kah Motors. The is not very significant ($21 per loan per year), and it may not matter if you don’t take the loan.

The Wish has cheaper servicing For servicing packages from 1K to the overall servicing cost for the from Borneo Motors is while Stream from Kah is $2893. I couldn’t find the 1K cost for Wish, so I assume it to be the as 10K (it ought to be less). Of course, one go to 3rd party workshop, but during period I will probably to go to the authorized agent.

In a nutshell, the is cheaper to own, but the Stream has specifications (but not necessary in

Then, the more “subjective” (which of course everyone may a different view because all about personal preferences):

Looks: The Stream body looks better than the In particular, I dislike the Wish’s view. But I prefer the headlight assembly.

I prefer the centre console. It looks “advanced” than the Stream’s.

Toyota WISH

But I the Stream’s driver’s instruments

Anecdotal feedback from seem to show that the is more fuel efficient.

The subjective thing is that I prefer Hondas over Not that there is really really wrong with cars is not all about logic. maybe even hardly at
