Designed for women? How the Toyota Passo Sette turned from flop into the Perodua Alza?

It’s one of the oldest new cars that you can still buy in Malaysia, but the Perodua Alza is still one of Malaysia’s favourite MPVs. It’s a market that is slowly diminishing as most Malaysian families prefer getting SUVs instead. But while the Alza had turned 11 just a few days ago – it was launched on 23-November 2009 – its Japanese twin cousins were more or less domestic flops. The Toyota Passo Sette and Daihatsu Boon Luminas were sold for only 4 years between 2008 and 2012. So, what's the secr

Direka untuk wanita? Bagaimana Toyota Passo Sette berubah daripada 'sampah' menjadi 'emas' iaitu Perodua Alza

Perodua Alza adalah salah satu kereta baru tertua di Malaysia yang anda boleh beli, tetapi ia masih lagi menjadi salah satu MPV kegemaran rakyat Malaysia. Pasaran MPV kini kian menurun kerana ramai keluarga Malaysia inginkan sebuah SUV. Walaupun MPV yang baru saja melangkau umur 11 tahun ini beberapa hari lepas (ia dilancarkan pada 23 November 2009), saudara Jepunnya iaitu Toyota Passo Sette dan Daihatsu Boon Luminas adalah produk yang tidak mendapat sambutan di negaranya. Kedua produk ini dijua

Perodua Myvi GR sebenar? Ini imej render Toyota Passo dengan gaya Gazoo Racing!

Perodua Myvi Pilihan 'varian berprestasi tinggi' oleh pengeluar sememangnya menjadi kegemaran sesetengah pembeli prospek. Sebelum ini, terdapat banyak minat mengenai Perodua Myvi dengan kelengkapan Gazoo Racing. Walaubagaimanapun, Perodua Myvi GR yang lebih realistik mungkin bukan seperti apa yang anda bayangkan. Sebuah ciapan di twitter oleh Mr Kuruma memberikan gambaran yang lebih jelas dan realistik terhadap Perodua Myvi GR. Hal ini kerana 2 generasi Perodua Myvi sebelum ini diasaskan oleh To

Daihatsu Altis: Kembar Toyota Camry yang lebih mahal?

Syarikat Daihatsu dan Toyota sering berkongsi model sejak dahulu lagi. Rakyat Malaysia mungkin perasan kerjasama ini melalui pemilik Perodua Myvi yang sering menukar jelmaannya ke Toyota Passo ataupun Daihatsu Boon. Tetapi tahukah anda bahawa Daihatsu di Jepun turut menjenamakan semula Toyota Camry? Dengan nama seperti Toyota Corolla Altis, kembar kepada Toyota Camry ini telah wujud sejak tahun 2000 lagi. Dengan pembaharuan pada Toyota Camry di Jepun baru-baru ini, Daihatsu juga turut mengemaski

The Daihatsu Altis is a more expensive rebadged Toyota Camry

Daihatsu and Toyota have always shared models with each other for years. Malaysians would even recognise this seeing how many first-gen Perodua Myvis being rebadged as a Toyota Passo or a Daihatsu Boon. But did you know Daihatsu also sells a rebadged Toyota Camry in Japan? In spite of sharing the name with the Toyota Corolla Altis, the Daihatsu Altis has been used on the Toyota Camry since 2000. Following the launch of the updated Camry in the land of the rising sun, Daihatsu also offered an upd

比Toyota Camry更贵的换标车——Daihatsu Altis

多年来,Daihatsu和Toyota一直共享着不少车型,这一点对大马人民来说尤其明显,毕竟有不少的第一代Perodua Myvi就被换上了Toyota Passo或Daihatsu Boon的标签。不过,你知道在日本,Daihatsu甚至还有一款换标的Toyota Camry吗? 尽管与Toyota Corolla Altis同名,但Daihatsu Altis从2000年以来,就一直是Toyota Camry的换标车。而改款Camry在日本上市后,Daihatsu也同样为其旗舰车型进行了升级改款。 正如你看到的一样,除了车标从Toyota换成Daihatsu以外,Daihatsu Altis和Toyota Camry几乎一模一样。如果你够细心的话,你还能看见Daihatsu的标志是蓝色的,这是因为与日规版的Camry一样,这款Altis也只提供混动车型。 这代表着它搭载的是2.5升的汽油-电力混动系统,综合动力输出为211 PS。而且Altis还第一次搭载了E-Four全轮驱动系统,这让它的综合动力输出能达到了218 PS。 除了动力,Altis也和Camry一样搭载了Toyota

Kia has just revealed the interior of the 2021 Kia Carnival. Based on these images, it definitely gives off a premium vibe just like we expect from last week's spy shots. The spacious and futuristic interior design is based on the ‘Spatial Talents’ interior design concept. The dash itself looks similar to the latest Sorento. Both the 12.3-inch digital driver’s instrument panel and the 12.3-inch infotainment screen are linked by one single glass panel. Kia has also confirmed that there will be 7,

The Daihatsu D-Compact X-over is the Perodua Myvi Style that we wish we had

Perodua is expected to introduce a crossover version of the Myvi soon, ala Perodua Axia Style. Expect the forthcoming taller riding Perodua Myvi to feature faux SUV-style side claddings, sharing the same ‘Style’ moniker. The idea of a Perodua Myvi crossover is not new. Back in 2006, two years after the first generation Daihatsu Boon/Toyota Passo twins were introduced in Japan and one year after a lightly re-designed Boon/Passo became the Perodua Myvi, Daihatsu had introduced the D-Compact X-over

Toyota Rush to end Indo production in 2022, replaced by Yaris Cross?

As the next-generation Toyota Avanza moves on from a rear-wheel drive (RWD) set-up to a front-wheel drive (FWD) set-up, this could spell the end for the Toyota Rush. According to a report by OtoDriver, the Rush could be killed off once the FWD Avanza debuts around the end of 2021. The Rush currently shares the same platform as the Avanza. With the Avanza being replaced, that could spell the end of the Rush as its donor platform ceases production. According to sources close to the Indonesian medi

Like the Perodua Alza, the Toyota Avanza is popular (in Indonesia) but ageing. However, development on the next-gen Avanza is ongoing, based on this photo and it is getting a front-wheel drive (FWD) layout! It was uploaded by a Facebook user named Rizal ZeroTwo and showed what appeared to be the next-gen Avanza undergoing testing in Indonesia. This photo pretty much confirms our suspicion that the next-gen Avanza will be FWD as opposed to the outgoing generation's rear-wheel drive set-up. As you

2020 Honda Civic: What makes the interior class-leading?

The interior of the 2020 Honda Civic as Honda tells us is designed with the 'man maximum, machine minimum' philosophy in mind. Which is just another way to say they squeezed out every bit of space possible, really. Is that really the case though? Let's take a closer look at the Civic's interior and pit some notable changes against its older one, just so you have an idea on what's new and see if it really does embody Honda's philosophy.

Evolution of the Perodua Myvi in 3 generations – Malaysia’s most loved hatchback?

“Myvi” is the derivation of “My Vehicle," "My Vision" and "Malaysian Vision”. That’s what it says on the official Daihatsu website. The Perodua Myvi was the first Perodua to not receive a name obtained from the Malay language. Launched in 2005, the B-segment hatchback has become a household name, superseding older Malaysian-produced cars like the Proton Wira. Sharing parts with the Daihatsu Boon, Subaru Justy, and Toyota Passo, it is common to see badge conversions of this beloved hatchback. The

Is there a city car with a better interior than this all-new Honda Jazz?

By now you would’ve seen the all-new Honda Jazz, which made its world premiere yesterday at the opening of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, where the Jazz is sold as the Fit. The fourth generation Honda Jazz will only go on sale in Japan in February 2020 so details like body dimensions and engine specifications are still unclear, but we do know that in Japan (and Europe), the all-new Honda Jazz will be sold exclusively as a hybrid. It will most likely be a 1.5-litre full hybrid but unlike the

Toyota Harrier is Japan’s No.1 premium SUV for 2020, Toyota Raize tops all SUV sales

The Japan Automobile Dealers Association (JADA) has released its list of top selling models in Japan for Financial Year 2020 (April 2020 to March 2021). Seven out of the top-10 best-selling models in Japan came from Toyota. The Toyota Yaris (including Yaris Cross and GR Yaris) is Japan’s most popular nameplate, with 202,657 units sold in the last year.

谍照爆料:下一代前驱版Toyota Avanza现身,或将成为新款Alza?

和Perodua Alza一样,Toyota Avanza虽然热销(在印尼),但也已经有些落后了。不过,下一代Avanza的开发正在进行,而基于这种照片来看,它将会采用前驱(FWD)方案! 从Facebook用户Rizal ZeroTwo上传的照片来看,似乎下一代Avanza已经在印尼进行路试了。 这张照片几乎证实了我们的怀疑,下一代Avanza将是前驱的布局,而不是即将淘汰的现款后驱布局。正如你所看到的,在放大照片之后,可以明显看出后方的差速器不见了。 但是,车尾看起来确实与Daihatsu DN Multisix概念车有很大的不同,而之前我们曾推测Daihatsu DN Multisix概念车将成为下一代Toyota Avanza和Perodua Alza的设计模板。 所以尽管看起来像Avanza,但它实际上只是一辆试验车。在一款车型量产数年前,汽车厂商常会先用这些试验车来测试新车型的优点和缺点。 简而言之,这款疑似下一代Avanza并非这款MPV的最终设计。总之,按照Daihatsu的历史,概念车的设计通常都会沿用到量产车型上。 下一代Avanza将与下一代Alza一样采用Dai
