Did Perodua just previewed a new head unit for the Axia Style?

Perodua has uploaded a pretty adorable 3D-animated video to show off its vehicles’ safety features on their YouTube channel. The video also possibly hinted that there might be something in store for the Axia Style. We can easily admire the colourful animation as a Bezza swerves round a roadworks obstacle to demonstrate its ABS and EBD or even how smooth the Aruz moves up the hill so effortlessly due to HSA. But something interesting comes along as the Axia Style appears in the video. Perodua's l

Which is better for you: 2017 Honda Jazz or 2019 Toyota Yaris?

The B-segment hatch market is the most popular market in the Asian region, so it is not a surprise that there are plenty of options for the picking. Out of all the options, the Honda Jazz and the Toyota Yaris reigns supreme, with only the Mazda 2 being close to holding a candle next to these two. Disclaimer: The Perodua Myvi don’t count.

Used Peugeot 308 (T7) for RM 20,000; Save cost on the car for the repairs?

Peugeots, unfortunately, are plagued by bad reputation. Low resale value being one of the worst rep it has, but these French babies are actually very comfortable and fun cars to drive.

If you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you have some level of interest in cars. What about cars that made you interested in them? When and how did you started liking cars?

Sony is not going to build cars which is why it built the Sony Vision S concept car

If you grew up in the 1990’s Sony wasn’t just “that company that makes PlayStations”. Sony was that rich kid who brought every imaginable gadget to school. They built radios, televisions, cameras, computers, phones, its own compact disc format, and even owned Michael Jackson. If that wasn’t enough, the Japanese giant revealed its first car earlier this year, the Sony Vision S. Billed as a concept, the Vision S looked like a Tesla, is said to be able to accelerate like one, and drive itself too.

Review: 2020 Toyota RAV4 2.5 – The perfect car for humble rich people

Toyota cars are ubiquitous. The Toyota Vios, Toyota Corolla, and the Toyota Hilux are common sights on our roads. Even Toyota luxury MPVs like the Alphard and Vellfire are seen just about everywhere in Malaysia. However, the same could not be said about the 2020 Toyota RAV4. At a price tag of RM 223,880 (with SST), the 2020 Toyota RAV4 is expensive. And from a value perspective, it doesn't make any sense. The RAV4 doesn't offer much more value over its cheaper rivals, and that further repels pot

In-car dashcam, don't drive without one and here's what you need to know

As cars get more and more feature packed, another equipment that has found into several new models is a digital video recorder (DVR), also known as a dashcam. Having video evidence from a dashcam will save from unnecessary “he said, she said” disputes arising from an accident. Many cars these days offer a built-in front-facing dashcam while some manufacturers like Toyota will even offer a rear-facing camera for an additional RM 350, which is a small price to pay for better peace-of-mind.
