A new car with Android Auto from just RM50k? Here's the list of the cheapest cars with it

It is no surprise that I am a strong believer of Android Auto – it encompasses everything you could possibly ask for in an infotainment system, including voice command, navigation, and music streaming. There's no need to fawn over the Proton X70's voice command, which we have to add, doesn't come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. With Android Auto, you use voice control to read/reply WhatsApp messages and enter a destination to Google Maps or Waze, as well as selecting your playlist on Spotify

5-year waiting list for the Suzuki Jimny in Indonesia

With talks of the Suzuki Jimny being locally assembled in Indonesia, Autonetmagz mentioned that the waiting list for the Jimny has reached 60 months or 5 years. It is estimated that orders for the Suzuki Jimny have exceeded 3000 units, and Suzuki Indonesia is only able to fulfill 50 of them per month due to import restrictions (the Suzuki Jimny is currently imported from Japan). This gives a rough calculation for the waiting list of around 60 months or so. To refresh, the Suzuki Jimny is powered

Mitsubishi Xpander has far too many fans than it can handle, 8 months waiting list!

We get it, the most popular car in Malaysia this year is probably the 2020 Proton X50. It had a headline-grabbing six-month waiting list (that Proton is working on rectifying), but it seems the 2020 Mitsubishi Xpander one ups that with an eight-month waiting period. Yes.

Top Rank: What are the worst-selling cars in Malaysia?

Finding the perfect car is the motto here at WapCar but "perfect" can be pretty subjective. After all, sometimes you want a car that fits your personality. Instead of going for the safe option, you would choose an alternative for wanting to stand out. Consider what we think first before you decide For example, choosing a Kia Picanto over a Perodua Axia, a Citroen C3 Aircross over a Perodua Myvi, a Renault Koleos over a Honda CR-V, or even a Toyota RAV4 over a BMW X1.

In Japan, Toyota Yaris Cross has a 6 months waiting list, more popular than Perodua D55L/Toyota Raize

Within Toyota’s model line-up for Japan, the two B-segment Toyota Yaris Cross and Toyota Raize (twin of Daihatsu Rocky, donor car to our upcoming Perodua D55L) sit in a somewhat overlapping position. Both B-segment SUVs are priced quite closed together and are chasing more or less the group of customers, but such is the nature of Japan’s saturated car market. Also, the booming SUV market demands for greater choices. Better to lose sales to your own models than to a competitor’s. The Toyota Yaris
