The evolution of the Malaysian Honda City in 5 generations

Had it been that we had no local automobile manufacturer, the Honda City / Honda Jazz would probably the most abundant vehicle on our Malaysian roads. The Honda City, as its name suggests, is a city car. While we may have only seen the petrol and hybrid versions of the city here, it is actually available in a diesel variant and even a manual transmission elsewhere.With the arrival of the new 2020 Honda City in Malaysia, it seems like a good time to look back at a brief history of the Honda City.

Evolution of the Toyota Vios in 3 generations - The best family saloon for the masses?

Bullet-proof reliability and good value for money is how most people would describe a Toyota. The Toyota Hilux, Toyota Corolla, and Toyota Camry are globally popular models that have further solidified the brand’s association with reliability. A less globally-popular car from Toyota would be the Toyota Vios. Not because it’s a bad car, but because it was made primarily for the Asia-Pacific region.Rivalling the Toyota Vios is the Honda CityThe Toyota Vios debuted in 2002. Its close co
