Used Proton Inspira for RM 20k! This or the Mitsubishi Lancer?

It has been 5 years since Proton has discontinued sales of the Proton Inspira, but demand for the car has yet to wane and finding a good used unit is like looking for a needle in the haystack. But for RM 20,000, should you still get a used Proton Inspira or should you just opt for the Inspira’s donor car, the Mitsubishi Lancer instead? The Proton Inspira has always been an interesting product. It came years after Proton has proudly moved on from just rebadging Mitsubishi vehicles and started pro

Here's why the manual transmission still matters

Just a few days back, my colleague Arif opined that the world doesn't need manual cars anymore. Chaos ensued, tables and chairs were thrown in the office (some were thrown in Adrian's direction too, for saying this). After the dust has settled, I'm happy to report that we're all still friends and colleagues (I was forced to type this). Jokes aside, I am only too aware of the passage of progress, and Arif does have valid points about the need to continue moving forward. Electric cars and autonomo

It’s car show weekend, and with ears honed through many rev battles you could probably tell what’s heading just by exhaust noise. It's a Lancer Evo...or is it? “Yeah, that’s an Evo”, you confidently tell your mate as the familiar low-rev burble is accompanied by a familiar face.

Choosing the right engine for your needs - Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton, Isuzu D-Max, Toyota Hilux

Performance figures published by car manufacturers are a two-sided coin, as figures alone don't dictacte the vehicle's overall driving experience. Instead, factors such as the vehicle’s weight should be factored in as well, as having a high output vehicle with a heavy weight would penalize its performance. Do keep in mind that having the most powerful engine does not necessarily equate to being the most durable or reliable. Ford Ranger - The most powerful pick-up truck money can buy In the case

Proton tried fighting Perodua with the Tiara and Savvy, and lost miserably

Between Proton and Perodua, it’s easy to see which one produces the rakyat's car. Both local carmakers also have a sort of friendly rivalry. While Proton did a decent rival against the Perodua Myvi with the Iriz, its sales were pretty lacklustre compared to the mighty King. At least the Iriz actually sell decently, which is more being said for its predecessors, the Proton Tiara and the Proton Savvy. Exactly what went wrong with the two Proton hatchbacks that both models are dubbed as the worst p

The demise of manual gearboxes may not be imminent after all, at least not at Porsche because they have just announced the option for a manual for the new 911, 992 generation. US market only for now. The latest 911 was launched with an 8-speed dual clutch (PDK) only option globally. And the thing about Porsche is that they listen to their customers’ demands. Case in point would be the previous generation 911 (991.1) GT3 that came with PDK only and purists around the world moaned for a manual. So

Mitsubishi Xpander outsells Toyota Avanza by 155x in Vietnam in Jan 2021!

There's good sales, and then there's absolutely dominant sales. The latter is an honour the Mitsubishi Xpander proudly wears in Vietnam, thanks to Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam selling 2,793 units of the 7-seater there in January 2021. According to data published by Vietnamese media, the Xpander grabbed 78.1% market share of all MPVs sold there last month. It's actually rather jarring to see how none of its competitors could even come close - no other offering could even crack the '300 units sold' m

Mitsubishi Galant AMG - Bukan lagenda. Mitos!

Namun dalam aspek pembuatan kereta, kedua-duanya adalah sebuah jenama yang tidak asing lagi. AMG merupakan bengkel tuner yang terkenal dengan kereta-kereta Mercedez Benz. Sebelum Mercedez Benz membeli AMG pada tahun 1999, AMG hanyalah sebuah bengkel tuner dengan reputasi yang hebat dan bebas dari pengaruh mana-mana jenama. Justeru itu, tidak hairanlah bahawa AMG menyahut panggilan Mitsub

The Lancer Evo has become synonymous with rallying - flying through forests, exhaust going off like a machine gun - and it's no surprise they won the World Rally Championship (WRC) with Tommi Makinnen four times consecutively from 1996 to 1999.

As much as enthusiasts such as myself lament the inevitable demise of manual transmissions (MT), there is simply no business case for manufacturers to continue offering a manual option. Instead, dual-clutch transmissions (DCT) or traditional automatic transmissions (AT) are taking over their place.
