Is the road tax actually cheaper for electric cars in Malaysia?

We’ve seen the launch of the Porsche Taycan and the MINI Cooper SE in Malaysia this year. They were surprisingly priced lower than our expectations. The MINI Cooper SE has a price tag of RM 218,380 and the Taycan 4S starts at RM 725,000. We did expect the MINI to be priced lower than the BMW i3s, but the Taycan is cheaper in Malaysia than it is in Thailand. The “low” price of these cars could be a result of the 10% excise tax on all electric cars as opposed to 60% to 105% for ICE cars. When we t

5 cars with the highest road tax price in Malaysia

Some say that our road tax structure is archaic and demand an emissions-based system. One way to pay less road tax in Malaysia is to opt for a smaller engine, which usually means opting for turbocharged cars or hybrid cars. The road tax of a car can be a deal-breaker to some, and it is one of the reasons we don’t see that many V8 engines around. Used cars with big engines are a big turn off, since the annual road tax is almost half their value. So, just how expensive can the road tax be? Well, h

Did you know that road tax don't go into road maintenance funds?

If you are surprised to find out that the road tax we pay every year doesn’t contribute to paying for road repairs then safe to say you’re not alone. The fact came to light after the much-talked-about pothole accident that Minister Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ) got into just weeks ago. According to a study, 80 percent of pothole accidents happen on roads that don’t require road users to pay tolls. Malaysia has also been rated the country with the third-highest road crash deaths in ASEAN. Responding to

Is RM 124k a fair price for the Toyota Corolla Cross? The Subaru XV and Proton X70 are cheaper

You've been waiting for it, and now it's here. The compact SUV segment in Malaysia just got a whole lot more interesting with the arrival of the Toyota Corolla Cross. You've probably read and digested all the specifications and features, gone back and forth through the brochure. Established players such as the Honda HR-V, Subaru XV, Mazda CX-3 (and the Proton X70 to some extent) have had this segment of the market pretty much licked for years, especially after Toyota's own C-HR was pulled from t

Toyota Fortuner’s A-TRC is like a gaming cheat code for off-road newbies

The Toyota Fortuner is essentially a 7-seater SUV version of the Toyota Hilux. It’s mechanically identical as the Hilux, sharing the same ladder frame chassis as well as the 2.4-litre intercooled VNT turbo diesel and 6-speed automatic transmission. Of course, the Fortuner also has a 2.7-litre naturally aspirated petrol-powered variant, but it’s a rather weak engine and that’s not the one that you want.

What’s so great about the RM 150k 2019 Toyota C-HR?

On paper, the Toyota C-HR is extremely underwhelming and frankly unappetizing. Halogen projectors, 17-inch wheels, 1.8-litre naturally aspirated DVVT-I with measly 140 PS & 171 Nm just doesn’t quite fit the bill of a RM 150,000 SUV. Not only that, but the tight-ish interior also doesn’t quite appeal to the family shoppers – limited knee room and only 388 litres of boot space. If you’re claustrophobic like me, I strongly suggest to not spend too long in the back seats of the C-HR. Safety features
