Goodbye Proton Ertiga, the budget MPV many forgot existed

The Proton Ertiga is no more as Proton has dropped the model from its line-up. The last Proton Ertiga rolled off Proton’s Tanjung Malim plant in May, with saw only 31 units assembled, including 4 units with manual transmission. These 31 units languished for a few more months at dealers, but the last unit should have been sold by the time you read this. It was a quiet and somewhat dismal end to Proton’s much-hyped but short-lived partnership with Suzuki. In total, Proton assembled just 148 units

Next Perodua Myvi needs BSM to retain 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating

According to the current 2017-20 methodology, there are 25 out of 37 vehicles crash-tested by ASEAN NCAP which received the maximum 5-star rating. The Perodua Myvi scored impressively well, which makes it one of the safest cars tested by the safety organisation. However, a new methodology will be introduced for 2021-25 and if Perodua wants to retain that rating, it needs to add a blind-spot monitor (BSM). Ever since ASEAN NCAP published its first report in 2013, the methodology has been updated

Perodua Ativa or Axeda – Other possible names for the 2021 Perodua D55L?

Now this is interesting, as a recent report from Automachi claims that the upcoming Perodua D55L will get a model name that starts with an “A”. Seeing that Perodua has yet to register any new names recently, we believe that the company may potentially pick a name that was registered a few years ago, including names such as Atriva, Axeda, and Ativa. Out of those three names, only the Ativa and Axeda names remain registered, as Perodua has since abandoned the Atriva name. In fact, a recent post fr

Besides sharing that production of the all-new Ranger is slated to begin in their Silverton, South Africa plant in 2022, the carmaker didn't divulge more details on the upcoming pick-up truck.

Is it true that the Proton Saga is cheaper to maintain than a Perodua Bezza? The answer is not that simple.

Both the Perodua Bezza and Proton Saga are Malaysia’s cheapest sedans, but which one is cheaper to maintain? If you were to make a simple comparison based Proton's quoted prices for its maintenance plan, the Saga's total maintenance cost over a 5-year/100,000 km period is cheaper than the Bezza by about RM 140. The Perodua Bezza will cost RM 3,149 to maintain while the Proton Saga costs a slightly cheaper RM 3,008. That's a neglibible difference over a five-year/100,000 km period. However, keep

Less choices for consumers as Toyota and Honda decline, Proton/Perodua extend lead

Over the next 5 years, the new normal for the Malaysian car market will eventually see less choices for consumers as the Big-3 Japanese car makers – Toyota, Honda, Nissan – retreat and cede ground to Proton and Perodua, whose upcoming range of models are more than a match against alternatives from Toyota and Honda. The Proton X70 has already eroded Honda Malaysia's sales, though it's still the No.1 non-national brand here. The Proton X50 will certainly suppress Honda’s progress even further. The

MoF: Tax structure under review, return to GST mulled but only after MCO

The Ministry of Finance (MoF) is currently studying measures to widen Malaysia’s tax revenue base, including the reinstatement of Goods and Services Tax (GST). A report by The Edge quoted MoF Deputy Secretary-general Zakiah Jaafar as saying that tax reforms are necessary as Malaysia currently collects only 17 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in tax revenues, which is quite low relative to high-income nations.

Perodua Myvi in sinkhole: Insurance claim might be difficult

Yesterday, news of a Perodua Myvi plunging into a 3 metre deep sinkhole in Jalan Maharajalela in Kuala Lumpur broke the Internet. It didn’t take long before Dr. Strange-inspired memes flooded social media. The memes were funny, but the driver of the Perodua Myvi could have been seriously injured by the sinkhole. Fortunately she was unscathed but surely it must have been a traumatic experience. We now learned that although there was absolutely nothing that the driver could have done to avoid the

Top-5 cars to buy for income earners of around RM 2,500 per month

Some say to find out your affordability of cars, simply take your gross annual income figure. If you’re earning RM 2,500 per month, your annual income would be RM 30,000, and that would be the car price you’re able to afford. However, we’d argue that it’s dependent on each individuals’ priorities and requirements. A bachelor with minimal commitments will be able to afford a little more, while individuals responsible for several family members will be rather tight on budget. So, we've set a price
