  • Malaysia says goodbye to these 6 cars in 2023 - Exora, Accord, BR-V, Elantra, Sonata, Passat

    As this blue and green third rock from the sun completes its orbit around the pulsating red giant heat sphere, another year passes. 2023 could also see another record-breaking year of automotive sales in Malaysia. Still, as we get accustomed to writing 2024 (or 2023A for the superstitious) on our calendar dates, we also would like to remember the key models that did not make it. Bar certain variants that have been discontinued like the Mazda 3 1.5-litre variants and the Volkswagen Golf R-Line, w

  • Proton Exora records impressive 11.5% sales surge in its final year, bids farewell after nearly 200k units

    Unlike our neighbours Indonesia, Malaysians largely only accepted MPVs around the mid-2000s. When Proton launched the country’s first homegrown MPV, the Proton Exora in 2009, the MPV sales boom was at its peak. 14 years later, most of the MPVs introduced during that period were discontinued (Nissan Grand Livina), entered the next generation (Perodua Alza), or grew into a crossover (Toyota Innova Zenix). Yet, the Proton Exora remained in continuous demand but its chapter has closed with productio

  • 5 used cars on a salary of under RM 5,000. What's the minimum salary / monthly repayment needed?

    Let’s get one thing clear about vehicle ownership. Buying a car and maintaining a car are two very different aspects of the proprietorship experience… and the latter is something plenty of us are guilty of not factoring into the equation which can then become an expensive sum. Firstly, just because you can afford to, doesn’t mean you have to buy the most expensive car you can afford on your salary or budget… lambang ‘H’ be damned. Secondly, pricier cars usually mean pricier maintenance as well.

  • Geely Jiaji scrapped, P1 confirmed no plans to replace Proton Exora - MPVs a diminishing market

  • Back in black - Proton pulls up DRB-HICOM's FY2022 earnings, RM 409.99 mil profit before tax

    Strong performance in DRB-HICOM’s automotive division has pushed the conglomerate back into black. It ended its financial year ending 31-December 2022 with RM409.99 million profit before tax, reversing the previous financial year’s pre-tax loss of RM291.27 million.
