The engine is a new version too, right? Maybe that's why?

Not too sure about the ETG6 and the engine. LTA does have certain standards when it comes to the testing and after importation the actual car has to be tested too.

I guess after testing based on LTA standards it could be different. So is this possibility of recategorization a confirmed issue or errrm... we are speculating what the issues with the LTA paperwork are in this forum?

Generally for the test drive cars, they would typically have issued a number plate to a Grand Picasso, but it seems like they are still hanging the blue plates.

If a number plate is properly issued to a car for the same make and model, I guess it would also mean the paperwork had been cleared.

I thought that there was a write up by a Kam family who had the car for a day? They drove it all around and wrote abt their drive experience.

When I went for the test drive in early March, my SE mentioned that LTA paperwork not cleared so they could only drive around leng kee area. LTA imposed a boundary for them.

If there are people who are test driving the car for the day around Singapore, means paperwork done? Confuse now. ..

The test drive boundaries are not set by LTA, it is set by the company. You can test drive anywhere in Singapore la, some even get the SE to drive to their location for test drive.

I think you may have misunderstood your SE in regards to test drive area.

Oh, I see. Thought that was what my SE told me.
Thanks for clarifying.

Sometimes, we get misinformed... It is always easier to just say an authority does not allow it.

The engine is actually same as the prev gen 110 hdi, but some internal optimisations and pairing with the newer etg box unleashes a little more power

Isn't the engine and gearbox the same as DS5?

We actually don't have a clear picture of what LTA is up to for our new cars.

Unless anyone's SE has said anything otherwise.

For all we know, it is possible that LTA is sitting on its butt on this issue. But who knows.
