Which is better for you: 2017 Honda Jazz or 2019 Toyota Yaris?

The B-segment hatch market is the most popular market in the Asian region, so it is not a surprise that there are plenty of options for the picking. Out of all the options, the Honda Jazz and the Toyota Yaris reigns supreme, with only the Mazda 2 being close to holding a candle next to these two. Disclaimer: The Perodua Myvi don’t count. The car sits in a class of its own! Between the Honda Jazz and the Toyota Yaris’s offerings, many are hard pressed to determine which car is better suited for t

Pros and Cons: Toyota Yaris – this over the Honda Jazz?

Fun fact: The Toyota Yaris shares the same engine as the Perodua Myvi 1.5L. In fact, both engines are made at the same Daihatsu Perodua Engine Manufacturing plant in Sendayan. Yes, the engines have different engine codes – 2NR-FE for the Toyota Yaris and 2NR-VE for the Perodua Myvi – but they are essentially the same aluminum block engines with slightly different tuning. The one fitted in the Toyota Yaris makes slightly more power, 107 PS and 140 Nm versus 103 PS and 136 Nm for the Myvi. So why

Used hybrids are really cheap, so should you buy a used Toyota Prius, Camry Hybrid or Honda Insight?

There was a short period of time between 2011 until 2013 when Malaysian car buyers enjoyed a too good to be true deal - import and excise duties were completely waived for fully imported hybrid models with engine capacities below 2,000 cc.
