  1. ?what do you mean
  2. I have the similar situation with you and I recommend you the Honda city 2020. The new City is out there with four variants – the S, E, V and RS e:HEV. The former three have the same 1.5L petrol, and their prices are RM74,191, RM81,664 and RM86,561 respectively. These prices – less than before despite higher specs – are on-the-road price excluding insurance, but with the 2020 tax exemption. The RS hybrid has not released a price yet, as deliveries do not start until January next year. HM has collected 5,000 bookings for the new City so far and therefore the initial sales target is 3,000 units per month. This may be raised by 500 units once the RS joins the fierce competition in 2021. The fifth-generation Honda City is greatly larger than the car it replaces. Compared to the favored fourth-gen B-segment sedan, the new car is 111 mm longer (4,553 mm) and 54 mm wider (1,748 mm). The larger footprint includes a ten mm lower height, and unchanged wheelbase is 2,600 mm long (platform is carried over but with improvements). The boot capacity is 519 litres – that’s 17 litres less than the previous 536 one, but still plays a leading role in its class. A larger second motor, which churns out 108 PS and 253 Nm, has the ability to send drive to the wheels. Since this “traction motor” drives the car most of the time, and the i-MMD system does away with a standard gearbox, but the engine can send direct drive at a higher speed by employing a lock-up clutch and a single-speed transmission (e-CVT) – this is often because the ICE is more efficient than an electrical motor at a higher speed. Since the engine features a “part-time job” in powering the wheels, this is often not an extensive motor of EV system like Nissan’s e-Power. Why the new car wants to make it debut in Malaysia? Obviously, Malaysia is the first country around the world to provide the town with Honda’s two-motor i-MMD hybrid system, which till now was only offered on the newest Jazz within the compact segment. The i-MMD also features within the hybrid variants of the Accord and CR-V. It is the leading market for the Honda’s hybrids in the Asia-Oceania region, accounting for about 40% of sales in the past five years. By the way, much work has done in HM’s Pegoh plant in Melaka. In this sense, Malaysia is ready and qualified to produce cars with the i-MMD hybrid system, and therefore the City RS won’t be the primary and last of its kind. At the kernel of the i-MMD system – which replaces the previous generation i-DCD – may be a 1.5 litre Atkinson-cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine (98 PS at 5,600 to 6,400 rpm, 127 Nm at 4,500 to 5,000 rpm, 40.5% thermal efficiency is world’s best), which doesn't power the car, but functions mainly as a generator with the assistance of an integrated motor , which also acts as a starter.
  3. Like the Aruz, the Rush shows a 2+3+2 seating layout with a 60:40 split in the second row and a 50:50 split in the third row. Its standard features include - a 6.8-inch head unit with screen mirroring, single-zone air conditioning with rear vents, keyless entry and start, panoramic surveillance with four cameras, and Toyota Auto Tag built-in smart tag. Thus, more or less it replicates the specifications of the Aruz.
  4. Toyota Rush vs Volkswagen Polo Toyota Rush While the Toyota Rush has a lot going for it, including its generous safety equipment, handsome looks, and proven reliability, it is hard to ignore the fact that the Perodua Aruz can be had for a lot less. The Perodua Aruz is essentially the same car as the Rush, but priced much cheaper than the Rush. In short, if you have no interest being seen driving a Perodua or stepping inside a Perodua service centre and prefer Toyota's after-sales, then there's no denying the Rush's appeal. Volkswagen Polo The Volkswagen Polo might have received many updates to keep the car up with the modern times but there is still no hiding how dated the model is. While the world over is enjoying the delights of the Mk 6, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia hasn't seen the need to introduce the car here. But, a since-removed Facebook post in January on VPCM's official Facebook page saw the Mk 6 Polo on full display, so perhaps this is a hint that there are talks of launching the new car soon. In the meantime, we will have to make do with the Mk5 Polo for now.
  5. Daihatsu Sigra vs Lexus LS Daihatsu Sigra Daihatsu Sigra prices start from Rp. 119500. Daihatsu Sigra has a 1.2L engine. Lexus LS The price for the Lexus LS starts from IDR 3740000. The Lexus LS has a 3.4L engine.
  6. The Renault TWIZY is a 100% electric car. A super fun to drive urban electric compact two-seater. Plugged in with positive energy. Discover TWIZY!
  7. I'm an aesthete , and I like how this car looks like. But I know it's not a good idea to buy a car based on looks alone, so I'd like to ask you Toyota CHR owners to give me some advice. Thanks!
  8. I've been driving my dad's Peugeot 3008 for half a month and found a lot of problems, so I'm looking for answers. 1: The fuel gauge always shows that the fuel is not enough, every time I fill up until the gun jumps, but the gauge is still not full. And every time I fill up, the fuel gauge is red, so I can only fill up about 30 litres, but the fuel tank has a capacity of 60 litres. This causes me to go to the petrol station every 300km or so to fill up. 2: The air conditioning always makes a strange noise. Every time I start the car, the air conditioning starts working and there is a strange noise, intermittent, especially at 24°C. It is extremely noticeable. But when it stabilizes, it doesn't ring again. 3: There will be a strange noise when the car is cold. As long as the water temperature does not go past 70°C when pressing the accelerator, there will be a strange noise coming from the engine compartment, but the sound will gradually disappear when it exceeds 70°C. Although these problems do not affect normal use, they are very annoying. Please tell me what the problems are and what I can do about them. The car has nearly 110,000 km on the clock, which is quite a lot of kilometres, and I would like to get it fixed. Thank you all in advance!
  9. Southeast Asian compact SUVs are so good value for money, apart from the Xpande, the Hyundai Kona and Toyota Rush in the same category are also good value for money.
  10. Perodua Alza is still the cheapest 7-seater, doesn't matter even if it's more of a 5+2 seater and it is cheap to maintain.
  11. Mitsubishi Xpander is the biggest in its class, offering lots of room for passengers, maximum boot space of 1,630 litres and it supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
  12. Toyota Vellfire is also a good MPV for you to choose. It provides well-appointed interior with lots of high-quality materials and Toyota Safety Sense. It is essentially the same as the Alphard, but much cheaper,
  13. dream car for sure. however I can't afford one lol hopefully one day I'll be able to replace my brv honda with a lambo!
  14. Whilst driving around in my BMW M5, I have taken to wearing a farmers style flat cap. Yes, a few years ago they were usually worn by old pensioners who pootled up the motorway at 30mph on a Sunday afternoon. However, now they are the chosen headgear of "The Cheshire set", Prince Harry etc, definitely the thing to be seen in.
  15. If you need a car with more space, I would recommend Nissan X-Trail. Cubby spaces are well distributed in the front with cup holders aplenty and it even has a large centre console for storage. But the Nissan X-Trail is a spacious car only for the front and middle row passengers. The third-row passengers only have sufficient legroom to not feel cramped.
