1. Reasons for choosing the Toyota Avanza
Toyota Avanza 2020
The name Toyota Avanza is indeed very attached to the hearts of Indonesian families. This rebadge from Daihatsu Grand New Xenia received a refresh in early 2019 with a fresher, more dynamic fascia and stern appearance.
The main reason the Toyota New Avanza was chosen by some consumers in the country, is because it has a Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) drive system that makes the car easily devour various contoured road tracks.
In addition, the Toyota New Avanza is offered with two choices of powerful 1.3L and 1.5L engines. Specifically, 1,329 cc 1NR-VE IL, 4 Cylinder, 16V, DOHC, Dual VVT-I are capable of producing 96.5 PS @ 6,000 Rpm of power and 12.3 kgm @ 4,200 Rpm of torque.

The reason for choosing the Daihatsu Grand New Xenia is because it offers new vehicle prices that are cheaper than the Toyota New Avanza. In addition to these reasons, the Daihatsu Grand New Xenia has now abandoned the 1.0L engine, and changed it to 1.3L & 1.5L just like the Toyota New Avanza. As for why Daihatsu Terios is not on the list this time, it may be because Daihatsu Xenia is too popular.
3. Reasons for choosing the Honda New Mobilio
Honda Mobilio 2020
The Honda New Mobilio is considered the most Fun-to-Drive LMPV to date. Especially when the newest generation has successfully embedded Stability Control, which makes stability even better.
Using the same platform as the Honda Brio, making the Honda New Mobilio the only LMPV with the lowest ground clearance at this time. Having a low distance from the asphalt surface makes the Honda New Mobilio more aerodynamic and superior when it comes to handling.
Honda New Mobilio is also predicted to have a 1.5L engine with the most power among its competitors.
2020 Honda Mobilio CVT transmission
The L15Z1 SOHC with i-VTEC + DBW 4-cylinder 1,496cc technology is capable of producing a maximum power of 118 PS @ 6,600 Rpm and 145 Nm @ 4,600 Rpm of torque. The transmission given by Honda to New Mobilio seems smoother, because it uses a CVT and the manual has 5 levels of acceleration.
Until the third quarter of 2020, based on data on sales of four-wheeled motor vehicles from factories to dealers (wholesales) according to the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (Gaikindo), Toyota Avanza managed to occupy second place under the Honda Brio, with sales figures of 25,104 units as of October.
That means this rear wheel drive car is still the reason most people have.
Mitsubishi Xpander, LMPV with front wheel drive, is positioned below the Toyota Avanza as a comfortable car, with abundant features, and a more attractive and luxurious appearance than the Toyota Avanza cs.
