Default Cars in Singapore 2008 (Pics Only)

Cars in Singapore 17-18 April 2008 (Pics Only)

The cars there are the cars we might see in India in future. Like Honda Jazz, Cedia (already have), Honda Odyssey and Toyota MPV (forgot name)

The cars there dont have hairline scratches, forget dents and dimples. They get it washed at washing stations for Sing $3.00

I spotted an Innova too!

Nice pics. In Singapore you don't find dirt and mud in streets unlike in our country. The city is as it is clean. Moreover, the most important is the drivers there follow the traffic rules.

Well not so much any more. Yeah the streets are pretty clean, but sidewalks, and parking lots are attracting a lot of litterbugs...It's not as clean as it was 10 years ago! And drivers are much more aggressive now...it was a huge shock when I was there for New Year's this year [I'm there every year]. Within the span of 1 year I felt such a huge difference driving in Singapore...

That's a really nice camera you have there, pics are great quality considering the zoom and the fact that you were in a moving vehicle.

It is quite interesting for me to see that people are taking pics of regular cars here in SG...I mean I do click pics of the Lambos, AMs, Ferraris and Porsches...Also there are quite a few Continental GTs now.

But yeah even the EVOs are relatively common there...

Any way yes the Sonata Embera is now being used as Taxis by the COMFORT Cab company, also by Citi Cab. The old Toyota Crowns are slowly being phased out, they're sold to Cambodia and Myanmar, also Indonesia I believe...

I had to hold and point it as steadily as possible, sometimes resting in on the head restraint etc. And we were moving fast and jerking all the time.

Yes the cab drivers were changing lanes the Indian way sometimes.

I did not even know that was an Innova when I took the picture till when I was posting it.

Yes I was wondering about its rarity in S'pore. However I think Malasyians come here for work everyday.

That seems more like a Toyota Picnic. It is a higher end model than Innova (slightly larger as well) - Innova is not launched in Singapore by Toyota.
