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 dec

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 crossov

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CivicHonda 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”)。K20A i-VTEC引擎这款车于2001年引进大马市场,从印尼进行整车进口。大马规格的S

Someone in Japan modified a Toyota Alphard to look like a Rolls Royce!

Believe it or not, this is a Toyota Innova

Here in Malaysia, or even anywhere else in South East Asia, we don’t think very highly of the Toyota Innova. Malaysians in particular can’t get over the fact that it rides on the same underpinnings as a rudimentary Toyota Hilux pick-up truck. Tough and good for carrying loads yes, but not for refinement.Over in Indonesia, theToyota Innova is very popular. It’s seen as a step up from the Toyota Avanza, the default car for Indonesia, similar to our Perodua Myvi. Still, Indonesian
