At today’s announcement of Proton’s February 2021 sales performance, Proton said it recorded its highest ev

Besides boasting stronger acceleration and improved drivability, there is also another (huge) benefit of switching to the 4AT – lower maintenance. Ove

Does the Perodua Ativa (D55L) come with a spare wheel?

Although spare wheels are no longer offered in many premium cars (replaced with either run-flat tyres or tyre repair kits), spare wheels are still important for consumers shopping at the lower-end of the price spectrum. Prior to the Perodua Ativa’s (D55L) local launch, many Facebook users were saying that the Perodua Ativa doesn’t come with a spare wheel. This is not true. All variants of the Perodua Ativa come with a spare wheel. Full sized ones too, not those skinny 60 – 80 km/h speed limit sp

How the Proton Saga went from RM 17,575 in year 1985 to RM 32,800 today

When the Proton Saga was first launched in 1985, a fresh graduate who earns a monthly salary of RM 1,000 can expect a reasonably comfortable life, even in the city. A bowl of noodle was just a little over a Ringgit, and a McDonalds burger would have cost just RM 3. A Nissan Sunny 130Y, the default car for middle-class families, retails for RM 19,500. Depending on how far along was one in his/her career, that’s about 1.5 years’ worth a young person’s salary. When the first Proton Saga was introdu
