Toyota Rush – Don’t rush into buying one until you read this

The Toyota Rush is an SUV that seats 7 people. The B-segment SUV is Toyota’s answer to the Honda BR-V. Both models follow the concept of offering a SUV-looking body with seven seats. It’s essentially an MPV for people who don’t want an MPV. Is the Toyota Rush a good car for families? What are the common problems and common complaints?A high 220 mm ground clearance SUV that seats 7, sounds like a great concept, except for one problem, and it’s a very huge one too.The Perod

Pros & Cons: Perodua Aruz – The value-for-money 7-seater SUV

When the Perodua Aruz was first launched in January 2019, some people mistakenly put it in the same category as the Proton X70.While both the X70 and Aruz are SUVs, that’s where the similarities end. The Aruz is seen as a 7-seater SUV and priced much more affordably than the X70 which is clearly targeted for a more premium demographic.But enough clarifications, we’re here to shine the spotlight on one of the best-selling SUVs in Malaysia. Without further ado, what are the good and th

Top Rank: Which 7-seater to get for less than RM 100k?

A 7-seater makes sense for someone who wants a vehicle large enough to carry the whole family for a trip back to their hometown. Whether its an MPV, an SUV, or a crossover, theres still a demand for them in Malaysia.But what if you’re considering a 7-seater that wouldn’t break your wallet? There are a few brand-new 7-seaters which cost under RM 100,000. The online classifieds offer even more options if you don’t mind going second-hand.So, for this Top Rank, we take a look at 7

2021 Kia Sonet 7-seater debuts in Indonesia – Ready to fight the Rush or Raize?

Though the 5-seater Kia Sonet made its world debut in India last year, its larger 7-seater variant (a 5+2 to be more precise), the 2021 Kia Sonet 7 was unveiled to the world in Indonesia.That makes sense since 7-seater MPVs and SUVs are still wildly popular in the archipelago. The Sonet 7 is fully imported (CBU) from India, just like the regular Sonet. Dimensions Model Kia Sonet Perodua Ativa Length 4,120 mm 4,065 mm Height 1,615 mm 1,635 mm Width 1,790

RM 2k for extra space?  5-seater VW Tiguan vs 7-seater Tiguan Allspace

Yesterday, we are pretty much inundated with a trio of Volkswagen launches but while the Arteon and Passat R-Line have their own merits, the biggest news would be the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, the 7-seater (or to be precise, a 5+2) bigger brother to the regular 5-seater Tiguan.This is without a doubt one of the most significant models in Volkswagen's Malaysian line-up as the Tiguan is one of the brand’s best-sellers.

How the 7-seater Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace makes sense in Malaysian market

If you want an SUV that’s not too large and is able to seat 7, there aren’t many options in Malaysia. There’s the Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-Trail, and Peugeot 5008. That’s pretty much it.Then we have the "big boys", the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Fortuner, and Mazda CX-8, but those can be little cumbersome to navigate about in tight spaces.And that brings us back to C-segment SUVs. As it stands, the Tiguan has to compete against the likes of the

In Brief: 2019 Honda BR-V, if only the Rush/Aruz ride and drive this well

Model | GalleryThe Honda BR-V is a budget seven-seater multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). If you have a young family and is looking for a seven-seater, the BR-V is a decent choice.It offers a lot more space than a similarly priced Honda City. The 201 mm ground clearance (19 mm lower than Toyota Rush/Perodua Aruz) is also just right - not too tall that it becomes difficult for young children or even the elderly to climb into, and not too low that it makes it difficult for older family members to get in

Perodua Aruz vs Proton Exora: The inevitable national brand 7-seater comparison

Before we start the story, allow us to clarify: No, the Proton Exora and Perodua Aruz are not in the same segment. The Exora is an MPV while the Aruz is an SUV. But the reason we’re comparing both cars together is because they’re similarly priced (the Aruz from RM 72,900, Exora from RM 59,800; before SST exemption) and they sit 7.If you’re wondering that the Perodua Alza would be a better comparison to the Exora, allow us to explain that though the Alza sits 7, it is more of a
