The car series needs to be careful before the appearance of VinFast VF 5 Plus

The appearance of VinFast VF 5 Plus accidentally opens a new segment, with a price that is not too uncomfortable, making many names in the same segment and budget worry.

With a price of 538 million VND with battery and 438 million VND without battery, VinFast VF 5 Plus not only causes fever in the online community because it is the most accessible electric car model today, not to mention opening up a new segment, urban SUV. The Class A market does not yet have any gasoline car models.


Accordingly, in terms of size and price, Kia Sonet and Toyota Raize will be the two closest competitors of VinFast VF 5 Plus, in return depending on the version, the price will be significantly higher. Also according to online community comments, VinFast VF 5 Plus is a pioneer car model in the A-class SUV segment, replacing the small car model VinFast Fadil.

Kia Sonet

Before Kia Sonet was dominated by Ford EcoSport, however the American brand quickly withdrew from this market share. Thanks to that, Kia Sonet quickly attracted a large number of users and shared part of the customer base of its elder brother Kia Seltos.


With prices ranging from 524 million to 634 million, Kia Sonet quickly demonstrated its position with an average sales of around 1,000 cars per month. However, with a low price and belonging to the urban segment, Kia Sonet only has full equipment in the high-end version, the standard version is only basic.

Toyota Raize

Although there is only one version with a price of 547 million VND, this is the main competitor of Kia Sonet. This is also one of Toyota’s new car models recently, the car is sold as a complete import from Indonesia.

Although it has a cheaper price than Kia Sonet, Toyota Raize has a problem with beer and peanuts, so the actual price of this urban SUV is higher than suggested. The impressive point of Toyota Raize comes from being equipped with many safety features, but the operating performance is only at a sufficient level.

Toyota Vios

Although VinFast VF 5 is positioned as a high-capacity car segment, with a price of less than 550 million, many sedans may have to divide customers. Toyota Vios is no exception, the car is currently priced from 489 million to 641 million VND.


Previously, Toyota Vios regularly maintained the top 1 position in the entire market, however, with the appearance of VinFast Fadil, Mitsubishi Xpander and other competitors, the Toyota sedan no longer holds the top position when having to continuously divide sales.

In addition, according to the proposed price from the company, the selling price of VinFast VF 5 Lux is only equal to two manual versions of Toyota Vios with only basic features, so it is not difficult to understand that this electric car model will have more advantages.

Hyundai Accent

Similar to Vios, Hyundai Accent, currently priced from 426 million to 542 million, may also have to share customers with VinFast VF 5 Plus. Because if you compare visually, the equipment and options of the VF 5 Plus may be less than the Hyundai Accent, but the advantage of high ground clearance will make many people change their decision to close the car.


In terms of sales, Hyundai Accent is not only one of the best-selling car models of the Korean brand but also the best in the Vietnamese market. According to statistics from Vama, at the beginning of the year there were more than 17,618 cars sold on the market.

Honda City

It’s difficult to bring in Honda City to compare with VinFast VF 5 Plus, because the difference in price and segment is relatively large. However, the performance of Honda City and VinFast VF 5 Plus is somewhat equal, not to mention this is also Honda’s best-selling car model.


But in terms of service, the standard version of Honda City is somewhat cheaper than VinFast VF 5 Plus with battery. However, the cost of using electric cars and gasoline cars will be something worth considering for users when starting to switch to a new type of vehicle.

Although electric vehicles are still expanding to reach more users, the speed of charging station infrastructure development and the company’s ability to meet supply will greatly determine electric vehicle sales. in the future. It is likely that in the near future, VinFast VF 5 Plus will be a national car model similar to what VinFast Fadil successfully accomplished.
