Before its first launch in the Vietnamese market in August 2021, the new generation Hyundai i10 was launched in the Indian market. Although the Hyundai Grand i10 brings many attractive changes focusing on design and comfort, when comparing the versions sold in Vietnam with the international version, there is still a shortage of equipment.

Although halogen bulbs have the advantage of low cost, easy to replace and repair if damage occurs, but compared to bi-halogen headlights, it is still very “lame”.

In August 2021, Nissan Vietnam introduced Almera 2021 (formerly known as Sunny) in the Vietnamese market with 3 versions priced from 469-579 million VND. The number of versions in Vietnam is 2 less than in Thailand, where this model is manufactured and imported to the country.

This causes many customers, especially in the North, to suffer from steaming of the steering wheel when it is raining and cold, greatly affecting the visibility and safety of the vehicle.

In April 2021, the new generation Isuzu D-Max 2021 was launched in the Vietnamese market. Unlike in the Thai market, D-Max has relatively flat sales and often “takes off” the pickup truck segment. Therefore, reducing the selling price is a way to “please” Vietnamese customers.

Compared to the old generation, the Isuzu D-Max 2021 sold in Vietnam is equipped with a series of facilities on the most advanced “Type Z” version including remote engine start, blind spot warning, vehicle warning cross when reversing.
