Massy will be selling the Hyundai Atos from September.

1.1 Litre 4 cylinder engine, for $125K.


I think it will sell like hot bread.

Same way people actually spend money on Prius-C and Chevy spark, this will sell quite well

I hope nobody with a daily highway commute buy that yes, it looks like a deathtrap.

Also known as the Grand i10 in the India market, also launched in 2019 there. It's pretty bad for a car. I could just hear Clarkson's abusive commentary on this thing like a Peugeot 407 if Top Gear was still a thing. :lol:

Price kind of ridiculous considering it's not hybrid. Who in their right mind would pay that price for that crap when you can get a hybrid 4 year old Honda Grace or even a hybrid Toyota Fielder for less?
(btw the max. offering price in India at 7.59 lakh {₹759,000 INR} is about $70-75k TTD).

If you see how ugly this thing is eh, who in their right mind would buy that?

You can get a Honda City with CNG used for less money. Or a Hybrid, I mean there are so many options, you can get a TCZ Diesel Hilux in like new condition for way less money than that and it still outlasting that car easily.

You can Get a Toyota Aqua boy the amount of things you can get for that money eh.

Any Toyota Corolla RORO for $125k is going to outlast that pile of sh!t. Nobody in their right mind going to buy this shitty Atos over a RORO Corolla or Yaris

Every car has its buyer.

An Ignis is something I would never buy but other people do and are quite happy with it. They want something small, affordable and "new", the perception being that new equates to "trouble-free", "reliable" etc. This offering from Massy may be targeting that niche as well.

I agree ( to the financing, not commenting on the posters bit). This lil putput will definitely appeal to some females who like compact cars. Already a cuz of mine fixing up her CS Lancer for a sale to buy one because it's 125k 'brand new'.

Eh...

I rather save that money ban my belly and buy a TCZ Hilux for $90K than this crap for 125K

The Hilux is LIFETIME, this crap is buy and dump after 7 years.

Hilux is Diesel Engine which means insane reliability, no need coil pack/distributor, no spark plugs no computer crap to go bad.
The Hilux is 4x4 so it going through that nasty dutty water when POS flood out.

10 year old Hilux easily outlasting that brand new crap for $125K.

Have you seen the tiny shitty wheels on this 125k car? that mashing up the first pothole it hit and Trinidad has worse roads than Africa.

I have a PAY 101 corolla a while now. No issues whatsoever and it was made in 1992, gives less problems than most of these new model vehicles and maintenance is near non existent, the vehicle is built so simple that I do most of the mechanic work on it myself with the help of youtube, all my extra earnings from overtime I putting it towards building a house that I want to rent out. To me I found this pathway to be better than buying a new vehicle and forever paying the bank.

Next vehicle has to be a Diesel Hilux a TCA or something that I would like to have until I die. Not because of fuel economy but because of Diesel Reliability and superior torque which is inherent in Diesel

I am just pointing out something, one has to be well informed and smart about buying a vehicle, not run down something just to have the latest license plate. If money is the issue learn to cook food home, ban your belly and buy something cash so the bank doesn't own you.


Let us get a better perspective of this let us compare

$125K for this which will mash up the first pothole it hits or have to be dumped in 7 years with 0 resale value or will float away when rain falls in POS

Image

Or $76K NEGOTIABLE for this Hilux which is DIESEL and a purchase for life that you will eventually hand down to your children and grand children.

Yeah me thinks the Hilux is the way to go.
