The Perodua Ativa has 3 variants on offer – X, H, and AV, priced at RM 61,500, RM 66,600, and RM 72,00

Why You Should Go For The 2019 Proton Saga Premium Instead Of The Standard Variant

Main reason: Electronic Stability Control Less important reason: Floating touchscreenThe 2019 Proton Saga facelift recently made its market debut and the company has trimmed the model line up from four to three variants – Standard MT, Standard AT and Premium AT.By doing so, the company is able to achieve better economies of scale and bring the prices under the magic RM40k mark while improving overall quality and equipment levels.

Proton X50 vs Perodua D55L; How do they compare in size?

The Proton X50 and Perodua D55L are probably 2020’s most talked-about cars in Malaysia.

But how do the 2 SUVs compare in size? Here’s a quick size comparison.While there is much talk about the two being the strongest “competitors” in the B-segment SUV mark

Since the introduction of the Proton X70, all the love and attention were given to the range-topping X70 Premium 2WD and for good reason.By now you should be well aware of the “Hi Proton” Intelligent Voice Command function that allows you to operate some key functions of the car.

How to choose the right 12V battery for your car?

If you drive an automatic car, it is impossible to push start the car. Your only option in case of a flat battery is to jump start the car and get a battery replacement ASAP. A weak car battery has obvious tell-tale signs like a slow crank and dim lights.Changing a car battery is a simple task, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, there’s still a high chance of screwing things up.Not the kind of push-start you want. PhotoIf you have absolutely no experience in replacin

2021 Perodua Ativa 1.0 AV vs Proton X50 1.5T Standard —— 选大车还是选小车?

我们已经能听到大家疯狂敲键盘的声音了,确实,2021 Perodua Ativa(D55L)和Proton X50并不是直接对标的车型。但正如我们之前提到过的一样,它们的价格相近,因此不可避免地会吸引同一批消费者进行交叉选购。如果你刚好就是这其中的一员,那么这篇指南可能会帮到你做出正确的选择。我们从价格开始说起。Perodua Ativa共有三个等级可选——X、H和AV,标价分别为RM 61,500、RM 66,600和RM 72,000。另一方面,Proton X50则共有四个等级可选——Standard、Executive、Premium和Flagship,标价分别为RM 79,200、RM 84,800、RM 93,200和RM 103,300。顶配的Ativa 1.0 AV和入门级的X50 1.5T Standard差价仅仅只有RM 7,000,因此这两者是很有可能发生对比选购的。因此,我们本次对比的重点也将放在Ativa AV和X50 Standard上。它们有多大(小)? 外观 尺寸参数 Perodu
