Evolution of the Perodua Myvi in 3 generations – Malaysia’s most loved hatchback?

“Myvi” is the derivation of “My Vehicle," "My Vision" and "Malaysian Vision”. That’s what it says on the official Daihatsu website. The Perodua Myvi was the first Perodua to not receive a name obtained from the Malay language. Launched in 2005, the B-segment hatchback has become a household name, superseding older Malaysian-produced cars like the Proton Wira. Sharing parts with the Daihatsu Boon, Subaru Justy, and Toyota Passo, it is common to see badge conversions of this beloved hatchback. The

Well, sorry to break your excitement but it's not the crossover you're looking for. Instead, it could be something else, the next-gen Axia Style. The crossover seen in the video isn't entirely new though. Based on the rear design, it resembles a concept car that was shown by Perodua at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Mo

While Perodua’s CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad cautioned us against reading too much into it, he did confirm that one of it is a sedan and it would be a big project.

Since its launch 15 years ago, the Perodua Myvi has been holding the top spot as Malaysian’s favourite hatchback.

Like the Perodua Alza, the Toyota Avanza is popular (in Indonesia) but ageing. However, development on the next-gen Avanza is ongoing, based on this photo and it is getting a front-wheel drive (FWD) layout! It was uploaded by a Facebook user named Rizal ZeroTwo and showed what appeared to be the next-gen Avanza undergoing testing in Indonesia. This photo pretty much confirms our suspicion that the next-gen Avanza will be FWD as opposed to the outgoing generation's rear-wheel drive set-up. As you

Hailing from Munich is the famous German automaker, BMW. The brand has been around since 1916 and its badge proudly displays the colours of the Bavarian flag.

The missing link – The forgotten second-gen Honda City

The Honda City is often remembered as either the tall-boy Bulldog from the 1980s or the ones many Malaysians fondly remembered that grew from a humble car to a torque-kicking revolution. But following the infamous first-gen turbocharged City that also produced this ear-catching jingle, its follow-up was seen as a step back from the first-gen. The first-gen City (known as the AA by fans) was a funky little car. It had a unique tallboy design that eventually caught on with other manufacturers and

Toyota Raize并不比Perodua Myvi大多少

从外观上看,Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky这一对紧凑型SUV双胞胎,在轮廓上与Perodua Myci显然十分相似。Daihatsu Rocky是由Daihatsu汽车有限公司生产的,这家公司同时也是Toyota的委托制造商,而Toyota也销售如Toyota Raize这种相同的车型。尽管Raize和Rocky看上去比Myvi更高大,但其实这款SUV的尺寸跟这辆小掀背车相差无几。 比起车身长3,895 mm、宽1,735 mm的Perodua Myvi,Toyota Raize的车身仅仅长了100 mm,并且还窄了40mm。也正因如此,Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky被才分为了B级SUV。 就算在高度上,两款车的差距也没有预想中的那么大。虽然Raize/Rocky是一款SUV,但也只比1,515 mm的Myvi高出了105 mm。 而至于轴距,Raize/Rocky的数据为2,520 mm,仅仅比2,500 mm的Perodua Myvi长了20mm。 这两款车最大的差别在于尾厢空间。 Perodua Myvi的尾厢有277升,明显比To
