When we are younger all that matter is hp, when we are older we want more torque?

For me, normal daily driving is defnitely a sedan.
Long distance, also a sedan.

I dont mind using an SUV daily, only if they can provide similar fc as a sedan can give. That is petrol to petrol comparison.

I don't like using big, heavy, tall cars. Feel like I am going to topple over when cornering, handling feels sluggish and no fun. Plus I don't like the look of tall cars.

My current daily - 4 door sedan, 250hp/300Nm, under 1500kg.
My 'planned' new daily - 4 door sedan, 350HP/500Nm, under 1700KG.

Easier to get adrenaline rush as body roll is earlier and more obvious.

Flood is a major issue if you’re driving in the city centre. Plus can’t corner that fast cause usually jam anyway.

I’m thinking a SUV with level 2 autonomous driving and a weekend car would be the ideal practical combo. So weekdays let the SUV jam itself to work. Weekend I drive my toy.

I never have issues with flooding so it's not a concern for me. Life is too short to drive boring cars for 5 days of the week just because scared of flooding.

Well, u will be surprised how deep your evo can go through.

I wade through flooded road once, 3/4 tire deep. My car jerks for few hrs then everything back to normal...will i do it again? Definitely No. Wading water is a 50/50 thing. Getting stuck is the least of your worry. The main concern is u cant see if there is a super big hole enough to swallow your car

I never need to pass thru any major floods before in my normal routes, at most was just like 5cm water level and even that is very rare.

Actually no, when I bought over (actually belongs to mechanic BIL), I told my mechanic to swap immediately. He refuse and say drive first lah, everything in good condition, all service under him. Well, you know Mitsu auto gb, this gb I think is same batch with Perdana SEi......lol

My wife actually prefers tall SUV but when I offered her Airtrek Turbo she declined coz too old. She said she wants HRV or CRV, so I ignore her. I just let her drive the Mark X, luckily she likes it. I remembered she was a bit surprised on her birthday I sold off her Livina and told her just drive either the Mark X or the manual Swift!
