After the Vios GR Sport, is the 2021 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport coming to Malaysia?

If you've been following our website, you'll know that the 2021 Toyota Vios facelift will bring with it a new variant - the Vios GR Sport. To most of us, a Vios with Gazoo Racing touches is a bit of a surprise. But that's happening, so it isn't too far-fetched to expect the 2021 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport in Malaysia too, since Thailand already has that model on sale. Drawing inspiration from Toyota's performance-oriented GR models, the Thai-spec Corolla Altis GR Sport gets significant aesthe

Toyota C-HR GR Sport unveiled, Malaysia's Vios GR Sport could be something like this

This is the European-market 2021 Toyota C-HR GR Sport - and in one way or another - serves as a peek into Malaysia's upcoming 2021 Toyota Vios GR Sport. We'll explain as we get further into the post, but let's take a look at this car first.

While the world despair that all planned productions and premiers have been pushed back, we take a moment to enjoy the power of the Peugeot 508 Sport Engineered. Peugeot had previously released just 4 images and a video as a tease last month but now they’ve released more powerful photos of the car. The Peugeot 508 Sport Engineered was presented at a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019. The super sedan is rumoured to be powered by a 1.6-litre plug-in hybrid aided by two motors to have a

The all-new Toyota Harrier was launched in Japan last week. The Camry-based (TNGA-K platform) D-segment SUV will go on sale in Japan in June this year but don’t expect it to be launched in Malaysia before 2021. Currently, there’s only one standard styling package for the Harrier but fans can expect a sportier GR Sport variant to join the Harrier range next year. Recall that the previous generation Harrier was available in Japan with GR Sport styling and handling upgrades. You may think of Toyota

2020 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport: all show but no go?

(2020 Toyota Corolla Altis Price and Specs | Gallery) The 2020 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport made its public debut at the 36th Thailand International Motor Expo and we did not expect how outlandish it looks in person. What the press images failed to convey was how much more angular the new body kit is. The restyled front grille when contrasted against the silver and piano black trims give an impression that the Toyota Corolla Altis appear wider than it is – although actual dimensions did not cha

Here’s why Naza can’t sell you a 6-speed manual Suzuki Swift Sport

By now you would’ve read that Naza Eastern Motors, the new distributor for Suzuki cars in Malaysia, has launched the fourth generation Suzuki Swift Sport. Priced at RM 139,900, imported (CBU) from Japan, thus explains its higher price. Enthusiasts who prefer to row their own gears will be disappointed to know that only one powertrain is offered for the Malaysian market Suzuki Swift Sport – a 140 PS / 230 Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder paired exclusively to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

2021 Suzuki Swift Sport: Should you buy recond or brand-new from Naza?

Prior to the return of Suzuki in Malaysia, those who wanted to buy the fourth-generation (ZC33S) Suzuki Swift Sport had to resort to reconditioned units, as recond dealers have been selling that model since 2019. But that will soon change, as Suzuki has returned to Malaysia under Naza. In the process, the company has introduced the fourth-generation (ZC33S) Swift Sport in Malaysia. So, the question is: now that potential buyers have the option of a reconditioned unit or a brand-new unit, which i

MAA: We don’t need third national car and every car company should pay equal duties

The Malaysia Automotive Association (MAA) feels that the country does not need a third national car as the existing two are enough. MAA president Datuk Aishah Ahmad told The Edge, “From the industry’s standpoint, we already have two national cars — that’s already too many. To have a third national car? I don’t think we need it.” She also did not comment on Perodua’s intention to be involved in the third national car project as MAA does not have details of the plan. Datuk Aishah also said that ev

The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is the long overdue alternative to the Merc CLA

The Gran Coupe variant started off with the 6 Series (F12 generation), then with the 4 Series (F36 generation), and now comes the first-ever 2 Series Gran Coupe. It is BMW’s answer to the Mercedes-Benz CLA, both being a four-door coupe that shares the same underpinnings as its front-wheel drive hatch counterpart. Visually, it looks similar to the 1 Series from the front but pay closer attention and the differences start to show. The 2 Series Gran Coupe has curvier headlamps design, wider grille,

Save up to RM 50k on a recond car or go for Certified Pre-Owned car?

When it comes to shopping for a car, terms like reconditioned cars and certified pre-owned (CPO) cars get tossed around a fair bit. On paper, both CPO and reconditioned (recond) cars are very similar – both are cheaper than a new car, allowing the buyer to save some money. But that’s where the similarities end, as they are world’s apart once you look closer. Recond cars – good on paper, but buyers beware While it may seem tempting to save RM 40k to RM 50k on a recond car versus a brand-new car,

Toyota Corolla Altis gets sharper GR Sport look for Europe

We think the latest Toyota Corolla Altis is a looker but in Europe, things are looking a little sharper for the world’s best-selling car. Following the success of the GR Sport versions of the Corolla hatchback and Touring Sports station wagon in Europe, the Corolla sedan is the next-in-line. Inspired by Toyota’s performance-oriented GR models, the GR Sport Corolla sedan gets piano black trims instead of chrome around the exterior like the front grille, door mirrors, and side sills.

Why did Malaysia get the Suzuki Swift Sport ahead of Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore?

While everyone is focused on the lack of a six-speed manual on the recently-introduced 2021 Suzuki Swift Sport, not many actually realized that Malaysia has launched the Swift Sport ahead of bigger / more influential (for Suzuki) neighbours. Indeed, Malaysia got the Swift Sport ahead of markets where Suzuki has a larger presence, like Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand. At the moment, the only other market to offer the Swift Sport officially in this region is Brunei, but their market is too smal

Daihatsu Copen GR Sport should be on everyone’s wish list

Doesn’t matter you identify as a male, female or a non-binary person, you can’t argue against that the Daihatsu Copen is one of the cutest roadsters out there.

Displayed at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show (TMS) is the souped-up Daihatsu Copen GR Sport in all its top-down glory. Let’s talk about styling first.

At the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon, Toyota has just unveiled the brand-new GR Yaris, its latest addition to the ever-growing GR line-up. Toyota co-developed the GR Yaris with the help of Tommi Makinen Racing, with the goal of transforming the Yaris into a street-legal rally car.

Toyota Corolla Altis Hotai Motor, the official distributor of Toyota vehicles in Taiwan has just introduced the Corolla Altis GR Sport, available as a regular petrol or hybrid variant. At a glance, the Taiwan market Corolla Altis GR Sport may look similar to the one we saw at the 36th Thailand International Motor Expo, but there are some differences. Up front, the Taiwan model gets a unique front bumper, as its lower air intake is more pronounced than the Thailand market car. The front grille ge

Malaysia set to introduce 2021 G12 BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport in April?

2021 is set to be a busy year for BMW Malaysia. Following our earlier news that the BMW X3 sDrive20i could be launched soon, it seems that there will be another model being prepped for a Malaysian launch, this time the G12 BMW 740Le xDrive M Sport plug-in hybrid (PHEV). Again, this seems a long time coming, because the G12 7-series has been with us a long time, and never got the M Sport treatment. The question is, why not? To our observation, most M Sport variants of BMW models have been rather

继Vios GR Sport之后,2021 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport也将登陆大马?

如果你有关注我们的网站,那你应该知道,2021 Toyota Vios的改款将追加一款新的车型:Vios GR Sport。 对于大多数人而言,Gazoo Racing版的Vios是个不小的惊喜。但既然它已经来了,那么我们也有理由认为,2021 Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport也即将亮相大马,因为这款车已经在泰国市售了。 受到Toyota的高性能GR车型的启发,泰国版的Corolla Altis GR Sport也在外观上花了心思,例如完全改变了车子前脸造型的多个车体套件。 这种侵略性的设计一直延续到了后部,车尾追加了后扩散器、尾翼和GR Sport的标志。 泰国的Altis GR Sport和大马版的Altis搭载的都是同一具1.8升的自然进气直列四缸引擎,能够输出140 PS的动力和177 Nm的扭力,匹配一具CVT变速箱。 说到这个话题,让我们回想一下欧洲的Corolla Sedan,那款车也将追加GR Sport版本,将于2021年1月份上市。 它会进入大马吗? 有些人可能会将它与上周走漏风声的Vios GR Sport做对比,特别是客制化车体套件和G
