This is why there's still no confirmed price list for the Proton X50 yet

Bookings for the Proton X50 are opened but the obvious question on every prospective buyer’s mind is, “How am I supposed to book for a car when I don’t know the price?”Proton dealers nationwide are ready to accept a RM 500 booking fee for the Proton X50 but you can’t view the car at any showroom yet. Instead, Proton is organizing closed-door preview sessions to selected customers but if you are not on their preferred customers list, you’ll have to wait longer.

A new car with Android Auto from just RM50k? Here's the list of the cheapest cars with it

It is no surprise that I am a strong believer of Android Auto – it encompasses everything you could possibly ask for in an infotainment system, including voice command, navigation, and music streaming.There's no need to fawn over the Proton X70's voice command, which we have to add, doesn't come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. With Android Auto, you use voice control to read/reply WhatsApp messages and enter a destination to Google Maps or Waze, as well as selecting your pl

Perodua Ativa (D55L) – Is it an A-segment or a B-segment car? Same as Proton X50?

Depending on who you ask, the soon-to-be-launched Perodua Ativa (D55L) is either an A-segment car or B-segment car. So which is the correct answer? More importantly, what is this A / B / C segment thing?The answer from us is simple, but others might / can disagree: The Perodua Ativa (D55L) is a (lower) B-segment SUV. And yes, you can loosely group the Ativa together with the (upper) B-segment Proton X50, keyword loosely. Both the X50 and Ativa are not direct rivals but remember that the loosely

In Japan, Toyota Yaris Cross has a 6 months waiting list, more popular than Perodua D55L/Toyota Raize

Within Toyota’s model line-up for Japan, the two B-segment Toyota Yaris Cross and Toyota Raize (twin of Daihatsu Rocky, donor car to our upcoming Perodua D55L) sit in a somewhat overlapping position. Both B-segment SUVs are priced quite closed together and are chasing more or less the group of customers, but such is the nature of Japan’s saturated car market.Also, the booming SUV market demands for greater choices. Better to lose sales to your own models than to a competitor’s.
