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

And then, occasionally, you will come across modifications that transform a car to look like something else like this Toyota Alphard with a Rolls Royce face.This Toyota Cullinan/ Rolls Royce Alphard (depending on how you look at it), appeared at the famous Daikoku parking lot – Fast and Furious fans would know this place – to deceive the eye of all visitors.

Missed opportunity: Where's the manual transmission 2020 Toyota Vios GR Sport?

One of the cars that stole last weeks thunder was the 2020 Toyota Vios GR Sport. Since we first broke news of the car a couple of months ago and all the way up to our Closer Look post, one thing has got one trump card that people have been talking about - its 10-speed gearbox. Brilliantly beautiful, but nearly 15 times the price of a Vios GR-S.Pretty much for good reason too. Name us a few other cars that come with 10-speed gearboxes.

The current generation Proton Saga, sometimes referred to as the P2-13A Saga, has been on the market since 2016.To keep it ahead of its biggest competitor the Perodua Bezza, Proton gave the A-segment Proton Saga sedan a mid-lifecycle facelift in 2019, adding a new touch screen infotainment, and a new Hyundai-sourced 4-speed automatic replacing the previous car’s lousy CVT, and more importantly, drop its price to be lower than the Bezza.Since the current Saga is basically a heavily modified

Evolution of the Proton Persona in 27 years – Will it ever match the City and Vios?

Back in 1993, the most preferred body-type for a car was a saloon. The Proton Persona debuted, and back then, we knew it as the Proton Wira. The Wira was known as the Persona in UK. Alongside the Wira, the Satria was called the Persona Compact, and the Putra was the Persona Coupe.For 2 generations, the Persona was a C-segment saloon. Things were revamped in 2016, and the Persona name was redesignated to an Iriz-based B-segment sedan.A lot has changed over 27 years, but the Persona remains an aff

Bullet-proof reliability and good value for money is how most people would describe a Toyota.
