Perodua Aruz vs Toyota Rush, the choice is obvious

Rebadging is a common practice in the auto industry, as manufacturers often rebadge different models and selling it as theirs. By now, Malaysians are familiar with rebadging, for better or worse. Enter the Toyota Rush, which is essentially a rebadged Perodua Aruz but with a much higher price tag, both are 7-seater B-segment SUVs, produced by Daihatsu, or in our case, Perodua. The top spec Perodua Aruz 1.5 AV has a retail price of RM 77,900, while the Toyota Rush 1.5G retails for RM 98,000. Both

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

Proton X50 vs Perodua Aruz – Do you really need that 2 extra seats?

This week saw the media preview of the Proton X50. Some might be tired of all the hype and some might even be tired of waiting for the official price list. Having said that, we predicted that the price of the X50 could range between RM 80,000 to a little over RM 100,000. With that price, it is priced closely to Perodua’s SUV. No, not the D55L, that might be out in 2021. I’m talking about the Perodua Aruz. At RM 77,900 (inclusive of SST) for the top-of-the-range 1.5 AV, should you go for the rear

Long awaited since last year, the Perodua Ativa is finally launched in Malaysia. This is the most exciting car in 2021 for Malaysia, and the biggest leap forward for Perodua.

There is a good reason why the Perodua Myvi is Malaysia’s best-selling car, as no other segment rivals can beat its value-for-money proposition.
