  • Critics can keep quiet. Perodua has just set its highest ever monthly sales in 26 years

    You can say that you want about Perodua. Good if you like the company, but the company couldn’t be bothered if you think lowly of its budget cars anyway.Since launching the first Kancil in 1994, the company has developed a laser-like focus on its customers, giving them what they want, which turns out to be just very regular cars that are cheap to buy, cheap to run, cars that go about their duties with zero drama.Perodua ended September by recording its highest ever monthly sales of 25,035

  • How did the Perodua Kembara conquered Malaysians’ love for the SUV?

    While the whole nation is abuzz with the Proton X50, there are some who would probably be more interested in the upcoming Perodua D55L. The still-unnamed SUV based on the Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky will be Perodua’s successor to their previous SUVs, the Kembara and the Nautica.For now, we’ll take an off-road trip in the Kembara. It was so well-loved that we speculated Perodua might revive the name for the production D55L. It captured Malaysian hearts to venture the great outdoo
