Did you know that driving on an almost empty fuel tank could damage your fuel pump?

While most of us suffer from empty fuel tank anxiety the moment the fuel gauge drops to 2 bars, some risk-takers tend to push their cars to the very last drop of the fuel before refuelling. Did you know that this is not good for your car’s health?Honda Malaysia recently uploaded a simple PSA on its Facebook page explaining that this is a rather common practice among car owners.Continuing to drive your car until the fuel gauge starts blinking red will cause problems in the longer term, the

Proton X70 1.8T 2WD fuel consumption, 7.5L/100 km possible only if you don't get stuck in traffic jams  – Ratings

In Brief: 2019 Proton Exora – it’s 10 years old, still worth your consideration?

Proton Exora | GalleryThe Proton Exora was first launched in 2009, thus making it nearly a decade old now. Most manufacturers will keep their models for around five to seven years before replacing it with a new model.To be fair, the similarly priced Perodua Alza is just as old as the Exora but unlike the Alza, the Exora has been given several significant improvements including a new turbocharged (but still port injection) engine, and more recently, a vastly improved infotainment system.How much

Pros and Cons: Proton Exora Premium – Wait, why are you still on sale?

Back in 2009, when the MPV craze hit Malaysia, Proton and Perodua both added a 7-seater MPV into their line-up. Here we are in 2020 and both the Proton Exora and Perodua Alza are still on sale.Interestingly, both models were given an update in 2019 and there seem to be no signs of replacement for the Perodua Alza. This time, lets focus on what is seen as the best value-for-money C-segment MPV, the Exora. Well talk about the Alza some other time.Another 10-year-old relic thats still on saleThroug

700 km in one full 45-litre tank for the 2020 Proton X50 1.5 TGDI

Proton has announced today that the Proton X50 will have a claimed fuel consumption of 6.4-litre/100 km for the 1.5 TGDI (177 PS/255 Nm) engine variant and 6.5-litre/100 km for the 1.5T MPI (150 PS/226 Nm) variant. The tests are done using the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) method.Yes you read that right. The more powerful engine is more fuel efficient. Why? Because the 1.5 TGDI engine uses direct injection while the 1.5T MPI engine uses port injection.We also know that the Proton X50 has a 4

Perodua Aruz vs Proton Exora: The inevitable national brand 7-seater comparison

Before we start the story, allow us to clarify: No, the Proton Exora and Perodua Aruz are not in the same segment. The Exora is an MPV while the Aruz is an SUV. But the reason we’re comparing both cars together is because they’re similarly priced (the Aruz from RM 72,900, Exora from RM 59,800; before SST exemption) and they sit 7.If you’re wondering that the Perodua Alza would be a better comparison to the Exora, allow us to explain that though the Alza sits 7, it is more of a

Was the Proton Exora pick-up truck a huge missed opportunity?

The Proton Exora, like the current X70, is one of the company’s “why didn’t we build these earlier” moments. For a country with big families and sophisticated tastes, the business case for an MPV almost seemed like a no brainer from the start. Instead, Proton busied themselves with that rolling-tower block on coasters, the Juara.It comes as no surprise that the Exora became a lucrative cash-cow, staying in the market for 11 years and counting.

It is no secret that Malaysia’s MPV market, and budget seven-seater SUV market, for non-domestic brands isn’t doing too well.In recent years choices in the sub-RM100,000 people carrier has been declining.
