2021 Perodua Ativa 1.0 AV vs Proton X50 1.5T Standard —— 选大车还是选小车?

我们已经能听到大家疯狂敲键盘的声音了,确实,2021 Perodua Ativa(D55L)和Proton X50并不是直接对标的车型。但正如我们之前提到过的一样,它们的价格相近,因此不可避免地会吸引同一批消费者进行交叉选购。如果你刚好就是这其中的一员,那么这篇指南可能会帮到你做出正确的选择。我们从价格开始说起。Perodua Ativa共有三个等级可选——X、H和AV,标价分别为RM 61,500、RM 66,600和RM 72,000。另一方面,Proton X50则共有四个等级可选——Standard、Executive、Premium和Flagship,标价分别为RM 79,200、RM 84,800、RM 93,200和RM 103,300。顶配的Ativa 1.0 AV和入门级的X50 1.5T Standard差价仅仅只有RM 7,000,因此这两者是很有可能发生对比选购的。因此,我们本次对比的重点也将放在Ativa AV和X50 Standard上。它们有多大(小)? 外观 尺寸参数 Perodu

What is ABS?

ABS stands for anti-lock braking system which as its name suggests, is a system that prevents the wheels from locking up (stops spinning) while the car is still moving. If the wheels are locked up and there’s an object in front, the car would just plow straight ahead regardless of how much steering input it receives.If you’ve ridden a bike with well-functioning brakes and just brake really hard, chances are you’ll notice the wheel stopping/locking up especially t

测评:2021 Perodua Ativa AV —— 新一代大马国民神车

由于我家中也有好几辆Perodua的车子,所以我对试驾2021 Perodua Ativa也是充满了期待。无论是从动力规格、安全配备还是架构平台,Ativa都是十分具有吸引力的。同时,其价格也是竞争力十足,仅仅比Perodua Myvi贵了一点而已。新的Perodua Ativa到底有多好呢?让我来分享一下我的体验吧。外观:漂亮的小东西Perodua Ativa的外观在可爱和凶猛之间取得了平衡,同时车身造型的设计也充满了年轻和动感。甚至有网民认为它看起来像MINI,不过每个人都有表达自己的权利,或许在一些人眼里它真的是这样的。在尺寸部分,它要比Perodua Myvi更大一点,底盘也更高。显然,它并不是我国最漂亮的车子,但作为Perodua的新宠,在我们试驾的路途中,我们还是收获了不少好奇的目光。从第一印象来看,Ativa感觉十分小巧。但在坐到车内之后,你或许会大吃一惊。内装:迷你版RAV4和Proton X50不同,Perodua Ativa的内装并没有采用大量的软塑料。但就算是这样,Ativa的内装与以前的Perodua车型相比,也有了长足的进步。Ativa的仪表板有了更多复杂的线
