Model ini dilihat sekadar sebuah kenderaan yang sesuai untuk bergerak dari titik A ke titik B tanpa sebarang ciri-ciri yang menonjol.Penawaran hanya 2 beg udara dan rekaan yang langsung tak menarik membawa kepada sentimen-sentimen yang tidak baik untuk dibincangkan.

3-cylinder engine vibration, noise, and reliability: Still a problem?

In the recent years, we have welcomed some new three-cylinder engine cars to the world – the Nissan Almera 1.0 turbo, Honda City 1.0 turbo (Thailand), Proton X50, and more excitingly, the Toyota GR Yaris.Even Christian von Koenigsegg has channelled his genius into developing a 600 HP three-cylinder engine. With these developments however, some of us still remain very sceptical of them.We will never forget the underpowered three pots in tiny cars like the Perodua Kancil and Perodua Kelisa.

Why the all-new 2020 Nissan Almera will be a turning point for ETCM

Before we get started, let’s get this out of the way – the current-generation Nissan Almera is anything but desirable.Not only the current model lacks any modern safety equipment (no stability control and only two airbags), its quirky looks won’t be winning any beauty contests as well.Enter the all-new, fourth-generation Nissan Almera – the model that will hopefully lift Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM)’s earnings.It made its global debut in New York back in April 2019

Lets face it. Unless your car is a rare piece of machinery, it will depreciate. This is why, for many people, resale value is as important for car buyers as the cost of maintenance.While there are some myths about resale value that are pretty much busted, there is still a prevailing perception that some buyers won’t choose certain brands because of how bad their resale value is.Trade in Users Car FormFor this article, we’ll be taking a look at a few notable C-segment sedans including

First things first. There is no such thing as a Proton S50. The name exists not on any Proton car but merely on a list of nameplates trademarked by Proton, along with the Proton V70 and Proton C50.Still, Malaysians have a very high level of interest in Proton and for whatever reason, S50 is fast becoming a trending topic.

Honda Civic的保值率是Fluence的2倍?哪一款C级轿车最保值?

这是一个无法避免的问题 —— 除非你的车是一台罕见的车型,否则它就一定会贬值。这就是为什么对很多消费者来说,保值率是和保养费用一样关键的因素。虽然关于保值率的不少流言都已经基本破灭了,但仍然有一种普遍的看法,即一些品牌不受消费者欢迎,因为他们的保值率很低。本文将带大家了解几款著名的C级轿车,包括Honda Civic、上一代Toyota Corolla Altis、Mazda 3、Volkswagen Jetta、Kia Cerato等。这些车的保值率如何? 请继续往下看吧!Honda Civic —— 以5年70%的保值率名列前茅Honda Civic可能已经算是一款老旧的轿车车型了。事实上,在我国的同级别车型中,它是目前在售的最老的车型,而其它的竞争对手都已经换代或停产了。尽管涡轮增压的1.5 TC-P可能是最值得入手的车型,但令人惊讶的是,自然进气的1.8 S车型其实拥有更好的保值率。根据我们的调查,2016 Civic 1.8 S的保值率在73%左右,而同年的Civic 1.5 TC-P的保值率在67%左右。所以,如果你追求更高的

Deal Breakers: Nissan Serena, love its practicality, not its infotainment

If you are looking for a people mover, few other MPVs can do a better job than the Nissan Serena. Actually that’s incorrect. There’s no other MPV that can do what the Serena does. What are the alternatives? Seven-seater SUVs? Have you tried climbing into the third row of one of those? Now imagine doing it every day/week. The Toyota Innova (from RM 115,280) also suffers from the problem too. The Kia Carnival (RM 179,888) is very spacious but the 11-seater is a bit of an overkill. It&r
