Can the Perodua Myvi that the Waja rammed into claim insurance? 

While the internet is still raining praises on the Royal Malaysian Police’s (PDRM) swift arrests of both suspects in the Proton Waja drama that happened last week, others were impressed by the Perodua Myvi’s composure in the video when the Waja was doing its best to ram it aside. But, the question remains, what of the Myvi’s repairs? Can the owner claim insurance?

Fancy a top-less Perodua Kancil? It's on sale!

We’ve seen videos of creative project cars from all over the world and even from the less urban areas of Malaysia, the last thing we would expect to see is someone making a project out of a Perodua Kancil and turn it into a top-less "convertible". But that was exactly what surfaced on a Facebook group dedicated to selling second-hand cars. We have to say, it’s pretty cute.It is impossible to tell what year the Kancil was manufactured, because other than having its roof sear

No Toyota Direct Shift CVT for the Perodua D55L, why?

The 2021 Perodua D55L is Perodua’s first-ever model to be fitted with a CVT-type automatic. Now, before you throw a tantrum at the mere mention of CVT, the one fitted to the D55L is very different from CVTs of yore.You see, the Perodua D55Ls Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT) features a combination of steel chains and gear set, vastly different from regular CVTs that utilizes only belts or chains. Mechanically, the D-CVT is similar but not identical to Toyotas vaunted Direct Shift CVT, despite both uni

Used Nissan Almera: Same price as a Myvi so should you get this instead?

After 8 years on the market, the Nissan Almera is finally starting a new generation cycle. We say finally as the Almera is looking very long in the tooth considering how Honda and Toyota introduced 2 new generation of the Honda City and Toyota Vios and a few major updates in between during the years the Almera was on sale. While the Almera might look dated new, it is still a desirable used car option to some. Here’s why…To recap, during the launch in 2012, the Al

A video of Bomba putting out fire on a badly burning car caught our attention recently, but it was not because there is a car on fire, instead it was what happened after that. A Perodua Myvi caused another accident on the highway as he slowed down to watch the Bomba put out the fire of the burning car. In the video, the person holding the camera was focussed on the burning car that the fire brigade was already working put out.

Perodua为何不使用Toyota Direct Shift CVT?

2021 Perodua D55L是Perodua旗下首款搭载CVT自排变速箱的车型。不过,虽然D55L采用了CVT变速箱,但这具变速箱跟你想象中的CVT可不一样。Perodua D55L搭载的是双模式CVT(D-CVT),这具变速箱结合了钢带和齿轮组两种传动结构,这与仅使用钢带或链条的普通CVT变速箱有着很大的差别。从机械结构上看,D-CVT和Toyota旗下的Direct Shift CVT都采用了钢带和齿轮组的混合结构,这也是两者唯一的共同点。从实际工作原理上看,这两者也有着很大的差别。推荐阅读:Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift是Toyota在CVT技术上最新的成果,它能够达到接近于双离合(DCT)变速箱的性能,同时又能保持CVT的平顺性和经济性。它在多个TNGA-B平台的Toyota车型上都有搭载,如Toyota Yaris和Toyota Yaris Cross等;同时,它也被TNGA-K平台的车型所采用,如Toyota
