Maintenance cost comparison: Proton X50, Honda City, Mitsubishi Xpander - Which car is the cheapest?

Before we get started, let’s dive into the figures first. Capping the period to 5 years/100,000 km, the Honda City costs RM 3,669 to maintain, while the Proton X50 costs RM 4,326 and the Mitsubishi Xpander costs RM 4,215. But before we go further, there is a reason why we are comparing an SUV, a sedan, and an MPV. The simple reason is because like all crossovers/SUVs these days, the X50 and Xpander are aimed at sedan/hatchback owners looking for an upgrade. There's no real reason why anyone need

Honda HR-V vs Subaru XV vs Toyota C-HR vs Mazda CX-3: Which is best for you?

A cross between a traditional hatchback and a tall riding SUV, the so-called crossover segment is now the fastest growing segment in Malaysia. Buyers like the taller seating position offered by such cars because it’s easier to get in/out, and offers a more commanding view of the road ahead. However because crossovers are smaller than a traditional Honda CR-V class type of vehicle, it’s easier to park and cheaper to refuel, thus making such cars ideal for urbanities.

The Mazda MX-30 made its debut late last year at the Tokyo Motor Show, as Mazda’s first series production electric vehicle. The model made its debut as a battery electric vehicle (BEV), meaning it runs entirely on batteries, and is said to go on sale later this year.

Did you know that road tax don't go into road maintenance funds?

If you are surprised to find out that the road tax we pay every year doesn’t contribute to paying for road repairs then safe to say you’re not alone. The fact came to light after the much-talked-about pothole accident that Minister Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ) got into just weeks ago. According to a study, 80 percent of pothole accidents happen on roads that don’t require road users to pay tolls.

BEVs with high battery capacity are not as environmentally friendly as you think says Mazda

In today’s trend of tightening emission regulations which require carmakers to lower their average fleet CO2 emissions, the easiest way to bring down that average is through zero-emission vehicles such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) or battery electric vehicles (BEV). It’s easier to get consumers to switch to PHEVs because it’s still a familiar machine to them as the main source of propulsion is still from an internal combustion engine (ICE). BEVs, on the other hand, are a little tri

Road tax paid to JPJ don’t go to road maintenance, so what are we paying for?

Most of us take it for granted that road tax, by virtue of its name, goes directly into maintenance of non-tolled roads, but that's actually not true. Instead, road tax is just yet another channel of government revenue, and it's not used exclusively for road maintenance. Which begs the obvious question, what are we paying for then?
