Subaru R1 wins Top Gear Choice Award 2008
Indonesia's 'Best City Car'
The Subaru R1 is more than just a car, in fact it has been named 'The Best City Car' in the Top Gear Indonesia Choice Award 2008. Judged for comfort, fuel consumption, features, lifestyle fit and after-sales care, Subaru R1 stood out for its impressive performance.
With its 660cc engine, this super small car has proved itself to be economical, practical and energetic enough for city driving, yet is the only city car that has eco-friendly technology.
Qualifying as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle, the R1 is one of the most fuel efficient, eco-friendly cars available with Subaru taking environmental concerns into consideration during its manufacture.
Tested on two rainy days in Jakarta by Top Gear's Managing Editor and Group CEO/Publisher, the R1 proved to be responsive, safe, and accurate in spite of the rain and traffic.
"A driver should always feel in control of his vehicle" said Andi Wahyudi, Managing Editor, Top Gear. "Despite its small rear view mirror the Subaru R1 is stable and easy to manoeuvre. It makes you feel safe and in control, even when it rains."
"These days, it is not just about owning a car, but rather owning a car that reflects your lifestyle and personality. We are delighted that Top Gear Indonesia has recognized the R1 as the Best City Car" said Mr. Glenn Tan, Group Chief Executive, Motor Image Group.
