Once popular in Malaysia, what happened to the Honda Stream and Toyota Wish?

Twenty years ago, when the MPV was still an in-thing, Honda launched the Stream. Three years later, in 2003, Toyota launched its own challenger into the ring, the Wish. Both these MPVs were a delight among families who wanted an MPV that gave off a sporty presence. They were once commonly seen on Malaysian roads, and perhaps some of you reading this might even grow up with one. Eventually, the idea of a car-like MPV evolved into crossover SUVs as both the Toyota Wish and Honda Stream saw sales d

Apa jadi dengan Honda Stream dan Toyota Wish yang dulu pernah popular di Malaysia?

20 tahun yang lalu, apabila kereta MPV tengah mencanak naik popularitinya, Honda melancarkan Stream. Tiga tahun selepas itu, pada tahun 2003, Toyota pula melancarkan pesaingnya iaitu Wish. Kedua-dua MPV ini menjadi kegemaran di kalangan keluarga yang mahukan sebuah MPV yang menonjolkan gaya ‘sporty’. Ia sering dilihat meluncur megah di jalanraya Malaysia, dan mungkin ada dikalangan pembaca yang membesar dengan kereta ini. Lama kelamaan, kereta seperti MPV berkembang menjadi SUV crossover. Angka

曾经在大马风靡一时,Honda Stream和Toyota Wish为何会走向没落?

20年前,当MPV还十分流行时,Honda不失时机地推出了Stream。在3年后的2003年,Toyota也推出了一款同级市场的竞争者——Wish。 对于那些想要一辆姿态更运动的MPV的家庭来说,这两款MPV都是很不错的选择。曾几何时,它们是马来西亚路上常见的一道风景,或许正在阅读这篇文章的你,就是从小跟着这辆车长大的。 最终,这个轿车型MPV的概念被跨界SUV所替代,而Toyota Wish和Honda Stream两者的销量都开始下降,并最终结束了其14年的历史。那么,这两款曾经大卖的MPV到底发生了什么呢? Honda Stream:一款7人座的Civic Honda Stream于2000年在日本首发,定位为运动型7人座车型。它在很大程度上是基于第七代的Honda Civic开发的,只不过为了放下第三排座椅,车身被拉长了。 第一代的Stream定位在Odyssey之下,它有着十分独特的造型,就像是发福了的Civic(或是超重了的Civic“面包车”)。 这款车于2001年引进大马市场,从印尼进行整车进口。大马规格的Stream有两具引擎可选,分别为一具1.7升的D17 VTEC

Someone grafted a Lexus ‘Spindle Grille’ onto a Camry-based Toyota Sienna

It’s bound to happen. There are already after-market Lexus ‘spindle grille’ conversions for various Toyota models, from a Hilux to a Fortuner, and even Camry! At the moment, Lexus only has one minivan model, the Toyota Alphard/Vellfire-based Lexus LM. Lexus has no plans to introduce another minivan but that hasn’t stop Instagram user sugardesign_1 from rendering a smaller, mid-range Lexus minivan based on the recently launched Toyota Sienna.

The 2021 Toyota Sienna is a Camry-based MPV we wish we have in Malaysia

Toyota is on a roll with introducing new models lately (the Yaris Cross and Harrier are just two examples). Alongside the 2021 Toyota Venza, Toyota has also unveiled the all-new, fourth-generation Sienna. Like earlier-generation Sienna models, the all-new, fourth-generation Sienna is developed and built in the US.

Someone double parked and blocked you? No problem

All it took was 7 minutes and a group of Malaysians to lift a Toyota Wish that double parked and blocked a Perodua Myvi from coming out of its parking space. From the video, it appears that the Myvi driver got the attention of one passerby, who later got more help from other passersby. Amazingly, the group of men found lifts to lift the Toyota Wish and repositioned the MPV, allowing the Myvi to exit. Watch the full video here.

Deal breakers: 2020 Honda BR-V, why only 2 airbags?

By and large, the Honda BR-V is a car that we’d happily recommend to families. It’s pretty well-built, seats 7, and features Honda’s famed interior packaging. Combine that with a solid powertrain package, and you can see why the BR-V is such a hit with its audience. 3 years on from its launch (the facelift model remains just as popular), the Honda BR-V remains a very compelling choice for buyers looking who want a no-frills, reliable and value-for-money motoring experience. With that said, there

Here are some Modulo kits to make the all-new 2020 Honda City look faster!

Honda has officially launched the all-new 2020 Honda City in Malaysia but for those who want the torquey RS, you’d have to wait until January 2021. Starting at RM 74,191 (without SST and valid until 31-Dec 2020) for the S variant, the all-new City is priced pretty attractively and looks pretty good even for the petrol-powered variants. However, for those who wish for their GN City to look fast, there is a Modulo aero styling pack that is available for the S, E, and V variants. Honda calls the ki

New 2020 Toyota Fortuner facelift rendered

The facelifted 2020 Toyota Fortuner was caught undisguised on the streets of Thailand. The images were hazy at best but least it gives an overall impression of the exterior design. Nikita Chuyko has taken that impression and expressed it in renderings which are published by kolesa.ru. As seen in the rendering, the headlamps and bumper design are more angular and the front grille is slimmer. Personally, it actually looks like it was styled by Perodua which means Malaysians will adore it. Changes

Following their debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January this year, famed Toyota tuner Tom’s will open orders for their tuned 2020 Toyota GR Supra and 2020 Toyota Century this weekend.

Meanwhile, stiffened chassis and new Brembo six-piston brake calipers mated to 380mm discs means the newfound power stays in check. Unlike us (hopefully), when cars go on a diet they become wider.
