Top Rank: Which 7-seater to get for less than RM 100k?

A 7-seater makes sense for someone who wants a vehicle large enough to carry the whole family for a trip back to their hometown. Whether it's an MPV, an SUV, or a crossover, there's still a demand for them in Malaysia. But what if you’re considering a 7-seater that wouldn’t break your wallet? There are a few brand-new 7-seaters which cost under RM 100,000. The online classifieds offer even more options if you don’t mind going second-hand. So, for this Top Rank, we take a look at 7 of the most bu

In Brief: Nissan Serena S-Hybrid, finally a worthy family MPV

(2019 Nissan Serena S-Hybrid Price and Specs | Gallery) When shopping for a family MPV, the biggest deciding factor should be the availability power sliding doors, as this feature is a blessing for parents with young kids. The Nissan Serena S-Hybrid is the only sub-RM150k MPV to offer this feature. How Much Is It? Two variants of the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid are available in Malaysia- 2.0 Highway Star and 2.0 Premium Highway Star, priced from RM 131,888 and RM 141,888, respectively. Opting for the

Geely Haoyue - Proton's first 7-seater SUV?

Geely has dropped several more teasers of its upcoming 7-seater SUV, this time releasing sketches of the new model’s dashboard. Codenamed VX11, the upcoming SUV will be called Haoyue (豪越) when it goes on sale in China. Prior to the model’s debut, Geely has dropped some interior sketches of the new SUV, giving us an early look of the dashboard. According to Geely, the Haoyue’s centre air-conditioning vents incorporate an infinity (∞) design, with a floating-style infotainment display sitting on t

Perodua Aruz vs Proton Exora: The inevitable national brand 7-seater comparison

Before we start the story, allow us to clarify: No, the Proton Exora and Perodua Aruz are not in the same segment. The Exora is an MPV while the Aruz is an SUV. But the reason we’re comparing both cars together is because they’re similarly priced (the Aruz from RM 72,900, Exora from RM 59,800; before SST exemption) and they sit 7. If you’re wondering that the Perodua Alza would be a better comparison to the Exora, allow us to explain that though the Alza sits 7, it is more of a 5+2 setup rather

Rendered: Proton X90 7-seater SUV, third Proton SUV for Malaysia?

Since the Proton-Geely partnership in 2017, we have witnessed two popular SUVs bearing the Proton badge - the Proton X70 and Proton X50. A third Geely-based model is due for 2021, and it is most likely the Proton X90, based on the Geely Haoyue, a 7-seater SUV. We’ve talked about the Proton V70/Geely Jiaji as a viable candidate previously, but the agreement to purchase the Jiaji will lapse by 31-Dec 2020 and the MPV segment is a diminishing one. With images of the Geely Haoyue at hand, we took th

RM 2k for extra space?  5-seater VW Tiguan vs 7-seater Tiguan Allspace

Yesterday, we are pretty much inundated with a trio of Volkswagen launches but while the Arteon and Passat R-Line have their own merits, the biggest news would be the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, the 7-seater (or to be precise, a 5+2) bigger brother to the regular 5-seater Tiguan. This is without a doubt one of the most significant models in Volkswagen's Malaysian line-up as the Tiguan is one of the brand’s best-sellers. Then again, what are the differences between both the 5-seater and 7-seater?

Rasanya semua mak ayah boleh setuju dengan hal ini – suruh anak masuk dalam kereta kadang-kadang macam berperang. Dengan barang yang banyak dan tentera-tentera kecil mengheret mainan, ramai yang mahukan pintu gelangsar (sliding door) kerana ia sangat memudahkan dan berguna. Nissan Serena S-Hybrid adalah satu-satunya MPV bawah RM 150 ribu yang menawarkan ciri ini. Betul ke? Berapa harga sebenarnya?

How the 7-seater Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace makes sense in Malaysian market

If you want an SUV that’s not too large and is able to seat 7, there aren’t many options in Malaysia. There’s the Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-Trail, and Peugeot 5008. That’s pretty much it. Then we have the "big boys", the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Fortuner, and Mazda CX-8, but those can be little cumbersome to navigate about in tight spaces. And that brings us back to C-segment SUVs. As it stands, the Tiguan has to compete against the likes of the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and of co

Proton’s foreign strategic partner, Geely unveiled its first MPV in 2019 called the Geely Jiaji. It’s a 6/7-seater MPV that appeals to families through its modern features and design. The Proton Exora has been around for more than a decade now without any replacement in sight. No matter how they spin it, the Exora is starting to show its age and is having a tough time staying competitive in today’s market space. If Proton ever decides to replace the Exora, there is a strong case to believe that

One of the nominees in our 7-Seater Family Car of the Year award is the 2020 Mitsubishi Xpander. Though late to the game in Malaysia, here’s why the SUV deserves your attention. Although the Xpander is ranked as a B-segment, the interior feels larger than its competitors which is not a surprise since the Xpander's wheelbase does measure longer than the Toyota Innova.

2021 Kia Sonet 7-seater debuts in Indonesia – Ready to fight the Rush or Raize?

Though the 5-seater Kia Sonet made its world debut in India last year, its larger 7-seater variant (a 5+2 to be more precise), the 2021 Kia Sonet 7 was unveiled to the world in Indonesia. That makes sense since 7-seater MPVs and SUVs are still wildly popular in the archipelago. The Sonet 7 is fully imported (CBU) from India, just like the regular Sonet.

SUV or MPV? What kind of car is the 2020 Mitsubishi Xpander?

Bookings for the 2020 Mitsubishi Xpander is now open. The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated MIVEC engine Xpander is locally-assembled in Pekan but a common question that consumers have is, is it an MPV or an SUV? The short answer is that it’s neither, but if we have to pick one, it will be an SUV, and that’s how we refer to it in all our articles on the Xpander. Yes, we recognize that there’s an even more SUV-like derivative model known as the Xpander Cross, currently on sale in Thailand, Indonesia,

Visually, the Haoyue takes after the Geely ICON’s boxy silhouette. Familiar cues include the expanding cosmos grille, Geely inscription across the tailgate, and slim LED taillamps.

Nissan Serena vs Toyota Voxy: Which family MPV should you get?

Let’s face it, for a lot of Malaysians, the ideal family mover is not that fancy SUV. Instead, the ideal family mover, especially for those with young kids or elderly parents, is an MPV. In Malaysia, the options for MPVs are aplenty, but we reckon that the ideal MPV is one that has powered sliding doors, thus narrowing down the selection by quite a fair bit. For those shopping for a family MPV, the most affordable option that features power sliding doors is a brand-new C27 Nissan Serena. Recond

Pros & Cons: Perodua Aruz – The value-for-money 7-seater SUV

When the Perodua Aruz was first launched in January 2019, some people mistakenly put it in the same category as the Proton X70. While both the X70 and Aruz are SUVs, that’s where the similarities end. The Aruz is seen as a 7-seater SUV and priced much more affordably than the X70 which is clearly targeted for a more premium demographic.

Review: Geely Jiaji (Proton V70), the MPV that Proton desperately needs

This is the Geely Jiaji, which made its debut back in March 2019. It is safe to say that the Geely Jiaji is set to be Proton's next multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). Depends on who you ask, the Geely Jiaji may or may not replace the Proton Exora. We are more inclined to believe in the latter, as the Geely Jiaji is a more premium product that's unlikely to fit within the current Proton Exora's price range. But before we get started on this review, we must stress the fact that the China market Geely Ji

Is the Honda BR-V an SUV or an MPV?

The Honda BR-V is an entry-level, three-row seat, seven-seater vehicle. With a ground clearance of 201 mm, it rides 3 mm higher than even a Honda CR-V (even when fitted with all-wheel drive). At the same time, it’s only has front-wheel drive, with an elongated rear half that looks more like an MPV than an SUV. So what is the Honda BR-V? Is it an MPV or an SUV?
