    With its distinctive look and contemporary design elements, the Toyota Lite Ace wins this round.

    Interior

    Comfort and convenience inside the Carry are guaranteed by the air-conditioning system, a 1-DIN Pioneer head unit with AM/FM radio and two speakers, sliding glass windows, and a 12-volt interior accessory socket.

    The Lite Ace, on the other hand, comes with a manual dial air-conditioning system and a 2-DIN audio system with AM/FM radio, USB, Bluetooth, and two speakers. It also has power door locks, cup and bottle holders, adjustable seats, and electric power steering.
