I think their most trusted 1.6 NA motor in the Quest would not have bankrupted them. 90kw and 154Nm, I would be very happy with that and it would be on par with the Honda and Suzuki engines.

A 1.5 engine in a baby SUV? I'd expect at least a 1.6 turbo diesel with 80 kW or so.
The Duster still rolls with their own 1.6l, 77kw petrol engine. Toyota is well known for doing just enough to get by in their products, in this case they did more than that and i'll have to admit, besides that engine there is nothing much to complain about.

Would make an interesting read. My guess on rank is Duster (especially with the new model imminent), Rush, Honda, H2. I do believe the BRV offers more value for money than the Rush though.

You are very mistaken in putting the Haval last, forgetting its origins for a moment and just looking at facts and figures, it is the best value for money in that group.
