Once popular in Malaysia, what happened to the Honda Stream and Toyota Wish?

Twenty years ago, when the MPV was still an in-thing, Honda launched the Stream. Three years later, in 2003, Toyota launched its own challenger into the ring, the Wish.Both these MPVs were a delight among families who wanted an MPV that gave off a sporty presence. They were once commonly seen on Malaysian roads, and perhaps some of you reading this might even grow up with one.Eventually, the idea of a car-like MPV evolved into crossover SUVs as both the Toyota Wish and Honda Stream saw sales dec

曾经在大马风靡一时,Honda Stream和Toyota Wish为何会走向没落?

20年前,当MPV还十分流行时,Honda不失时机地推出了Stream。在3年后的2003年,Toyota也推出了一款同级市场的竞争者——Wish。对于那些想要一辆姿态更运动的MPV的家庭来说,这两款MPV都是很不错的选择。曾几何时,它们是马来西亚路上常见的一道风景,或许正在阅读这篇文章的你,就是从小跟着这辆车长大的。最终,这个轿车型MPV的概念被跨界SUV所替代,而Toyota Wish和Honda Stream两者的销量都开始下降,并最终结束了其14年的历史。那么,这两款曾经大卖的MPV到底发生了什么呢?Honda Stream:一款7人座的CivicHonda Stream于2000年在日本首发,定位为运动型7人座车型。它在很大程度上是基于第七代的Honda Civic开发的,只不过为了放下第三排座椅,车身被拉长了。第一代的Stream定位在Odyssey之下,它有着十分独特的造型,就像是发福了的Civic(或是超重了的Civic“面包车”)。K20A i-VTEC引擎这款车于2001年引进大马市场,从印尼进行整车进口。大马规格的S
