During the last 6-7 years, the demand(mostly imports) for the Compact Crossover SUVs have been significantly increased in SL car market. This spark was first ignited by the introduction of Honda Vezel making those crossovers popular among Sri Lankans. Most car buyers started to think that having a compact SUV is pretty beneficial when poor roads scraped the underneath of their Premios, Allions and Axios.

Today, my review is based on one of the most frequently seen cars on SL roads; Toyota Axio Hybrid. Since the car was first introduced in 2012 only as a gasoline variant continuing the 1NZ-FE engine, the Hybrid variant was introduced in 2013.

So just planned to do quick review after driving a specific car as it would help most of the people who seek out details about a particular model.

So I will be unable to post details about long term ownership and maintenance.
This review is based on Honda Fit GP5, which is one of the most common cars in SL roads and one of my favourite cars t
Corolla 121 can be introduced as one of the most popular cars in TYPICAL SRI LANKAN vehicle market. Even being aged closed to 20 years they still sell around 3 million.

What it really is?
Just a compact car designed for A to B transportation with good fuel economy and realiability.

About to remove the throttle body and I'm curious as to what this exactly is? A box seperately located right under the throttle body and has a connection to the air box. Im guessing it's a PCV or EGR system?
Came across a 2008 Mazda Axela that the owner claims 'is used as a 2nd car for driving pleasure'... Come on now, are they really THAT good? I get they are fun and sharp to drive but how good is it really, that one justifies it as a 2nd car? It's an automatic too. How much sharper or better are they to drive compared to a Lancer, Civic or Swift of the same year? Or is it just hype?
