From concept to production: Perodua GMA Space concept to Perodua Axia

Perodua has come a long way. In its early days, Perodua’s budget cars were good enough only for driving schools. Today, the Perodua Axia is no longer just something that you buy because you can’t afford anything better (of course, a part of that is still true), but it is something that even we will recommend simply because it’s the most logical and wisest purchase for anyone looking for a cheap and dependable first car. Enthusiast drivers might disagree but accountants and financial planners wil

Perodua Bezza: From Buddyz concept to production car

Following last week’s article where we traced the origins of the Perodua Axia, we now take a look at how the Axia’s booted-twin, the Bezza came into being. Unlike the Indonesian Daihatsu Ayla-based Perodua Axia, the Bezza is purely a Malaysian effort as there is no Indonesian equivalent to the Bezza. After the successful launch of the Perodua Myvi in 2005, Perodua spent a good part of a decade mulling over the need to introduce a sedan. After all, Malaysia was (then) still dominated by sedans. O

The Daihatsu D-Compact X-over is the Perodua Myvi Style that we wish we had

Perodua is expected to introduce a crossover version of the Myvi soon, ala Perodua Axia Style. Expect the forthcoming taller riding Perodua Myvi to feature faux SUV-style side claddings, sharing the same ‘Style’ moniker. The idea of a Perodua Myvi crossover is not new. Back in 2006, two years after the first generation Daihatsu Boon/Toyota Passo twins were introduced in Japan and one year after a lightly re-designed Boon/Passo became the Perodua Myvi, Daihatsu had introduced the D-Compact X-over

Next-gen Perodua Axia concept in 2021? It's very possible

Six years old - that's the age of the Perodua Axia. It doesn't feel like it, but the little A-segment hatchback has been trawling Malaysian streets since 2014. Which is why we think we could see its evolution sometime next year. Retrace the Axia's steps and you'll find that it has its roots in 2011's Daihatsu A-Concept, which premiered at the 2011 Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS). The production version of the concept - Daihatsu Ayla - premiered at the 2012's IIMS and the car went on sa

New 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift 1.3 Premium X is our pick of the range, RM 43,980

(2020 Perodua Bezza Price & Specs | Gallery) The first local car launch of the year is the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift and being their best- selling (and only) sedan, it is an important model for the second national carmaker. Perodua has trimmed the Bezza facelift variant line up to 4 variants, dropping the 2019 Perodua Bezza 1.3 Premium X (MT) citing low uptake rate from the public. The Bezza facelift is a stunner in the metal and its extensive list of features are mouth-watering to showroom sh

Nissan Ariya Concept unveiled, radical next-gen Murano teased?

At the ongoing 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the Ariya Concept, which is an electric vehicle (EV) that is set to preview Nissan’s new design language. The exterior of the Ariya Concept features Nissan’s evolution of its V-motion design language, with a large front shield (in place of a grille on a traditional internal combustion engine car) flanked by thin LED headlights. The front end of the Ariya Concept also gets an illuminated Nissan emblem. The roofline and 21-inch wheels are finis

Selepas D55L, adakah ini SUV generasi seterusnya berdasarkan Perodua Axia?

Beberapa hari yang lepas, Perodua memuat naik video korporat terbaru yang memaparkan crossover hatchback dimana ramai netizen rasa adalah Perodua D55L 2021 akan datang. Maaflah, bukan kitaorang nak potong stim tapi ini bukanlah crossover yang anda sangkakan. Sebaliknya, ia mungkin Perodua Axia Style generasi terbaru. Crossover yang anda lihat dalam video ini bukanlah baru. Berdasarkan reka bentuk belakang, ia sama dengan kereta Concept-X yang dipamerkan oleh Perodua di Pameran Kereta Antarabangs

The problem we have with the new 2020 Perodua Bezza

With A.S.A 2.0 made available on the top spec and VSC now standard for the Premium X, the new facelifted Perodua Bezza sounds like it has received the smartest updates. But one thing that Perodua didn’t see fit to bring to the board is an adjustable steering wheel. Yes, the Perodua Bezza still continues on in this cycle without a tilt adjustable steering wheel. It’s not a strange concept as Perodua’s A-segment representatives, like the Axia, Viva, and Kancil that came before the current crop, ha

Slotting below the Perodua D55L, is this the next-gen Axia-based SUV?

A few days ago, Perodua uploaded its newest corporate video which features a curious-looking crossover hatchback that many netizens think it’s the upcoming 2021 Perodua D55L. Well, sorry to break your excitement but it's not the crossover you're looking for. Instead, it could be something else, the next-gen Axia Style. The crossover seen in the video isn't entirely new though. Based on the rear design, it resembles a concept car that was shown by Perodua at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Mo

Daihatsu: No future for Indo Perodua Bezza, DN F-Sedan concept killed

Daihatsu has no plans to introduce any sedan models in Indonesia, said the No.2 car brand in Indonesia during an interview with CNN Indonesia. Previously, the company did mull over the prospect introducing a sedan to Indonesia. In 2017, the company previewed the DN F-Sedan concept at the Gaikindo Indonnesia International Auto Show. The low slung, almost coupe-like roofline of the DN F-Sedan was originally conceived as a stylish budget four-door sedan, sharing the same mechanicals and platform as

Remember the Subaru Viziv Adrenaline concept car? It might come to life

The Subaru Viziv Adrenaline was first previewed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, showing off a new design concept of future Subaru models. Japan's Best Car Web has a new theory about the car with a prediction that the concept crossover might come to life in December 2021. Back then not much was revealed about the concept car, prompting many to speculate the concept’s design is a preview of the brand’s Dynamic x Solid design language next evolution.

Why do concept cars look so much better than normal cars?

As young car enthusiasts, we have all been excited by concept cars and their extreme aesthetics. The excitement usually comes to an abrupt end when you see the production version of the car – sporting smaller wheels, and looking like it gained a couple of pounds. As you mature, you make sense of the decisions to make production cars the way they are. Thicker tyres offer better ride comfort and a less sexy roofline actually makes for better ergonomics. A recurring theme you might notice in concep

Concept kei car from Mitsubishi teased

Along with the MI-Tech concept, Mitsubishi has also teased the Super Height K-Wagon, a concept kei car. Kei cars are popular in Japan for its price and convenience.

The Daihatsu WakuWaku concept previews an upcoming rival to the Suzuki Jimny

With its slab sided panels and angular lines, this funky looking Daihatsu WakuWaku concept presented at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show doesn’t look too far-fetched for series production. In case you are wondering, 'waku waku' means exciting in Japanese. As this is just a concept car, Daihatsu didn’t reveal much about the car’s (planned) specifications but did confirmed that it is a ‘kei’ car – Japan’s equivalent to Europe’s supermini category of ultra-compact cars. The confirmation by Daihatsu is eno

Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky, see its transformation from concept to production

Back at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Daihatsu showcased the DN Trec concept, a concept SUV that embodied the “active, fun, tough” theme. Let’s take a closer look and see how much the DN Trec evolved from a concept car into the Toyota Raize/Daihatsu Rocky. From the exterior, Daihatsu refined much of the design elements on the DN Trec to give it a more angular and rugged design, as keywords they uncovered after conducting a survey on younger buyers included “active” and “power”. Back then, many spec

The Mazda 3 X20 Astina will be priced from AUD 40,590 for the manual transmission, putting it into the Mazda 6's price point (AUD 38,785 to AUD 55,348). Then there's the Mazda CX-30
