Good day all, I am a fresh graduate out of university. I recently got my first job and am currently looking to buy my first car to drive to work (Between Selangor and KL area).

I surveyed around and my final 2 choices came down to either Saga 2019 Premium or the new Myvi 2020 X AT (without ASA 2.0). Not sure if Saga will be getting a 2020 refresh?

Anyways my main question is which of the above 2 options should I choose as my first car? I'm not a car person, looking for a comfortable ride and long term ownership.

My budget is around the 40-45k range.

Do you have to travel interstate frequently? Eg: balik kampung. If no, the myvi is a good choice due to it's compact size, much easier to maneuver around tight parking lots in KL city and can come in very handy if you're a new driver. Safety wise it's good too and a good fuel consumption. It's also very spacious. Downside is it's more expensive than Saga and doesn't have a good boot space.

Saga will come in handy if you travel interstate frequently due to it's heavier body and better handling, the car feels more planted and travelling long distance will be slightly more comfortable.

Both are really good options for owners looking to buy their first car, you can't go wrong with either.

For RM45,000, I would choose between Iriz 1.3 Executive CVT and Persona 1.6 Standard CVT.

Should be between saga premium or persona standard cvt.

You'll always appreciate the extra boot space. Furthermore, no need to change car when you get married & have children later.

The boot space of myvi is not as big as Honda Jazz, so cannot be used for interstate travel with family.

Honda Jazz can still fit luggage for a small family of 3.

Obviously the saga or persona can fit more & have a more comfortable ride & drive

Myvi - National certified sport car.. Surelaa this 1 for youngster.. If want to sell or upgrade in future also easier & more higher 2nd value.. If just for work and easy maneuvering around city.. For sure is Myvi all the way.. Unless you got family or like to long travel will need to look for like Sedan cars with boot..

go test drive, see which one suits your taste when u drive it
like the feeling of driving it, seating position, your view from inside

but if u plan to drive on highway, saga is a better choice of course

Thanks for all of your replies! I have booked a test drive for the saga through proton's website. Will do the same for Myvi as well and see how it goes. biggrin.gif

The reason I did not consider Iriz/Persona is because I read not so good things about its Punch CVT.

I've also read that Myvi's NVH aren't the best and also the Eco Idle could be quite annoying. Myvi owners could you provide opinions on this?

If this is your 1st car, i suggest saga or persona. Both good looking and value for money. Perodua myvi good fc but that is it,other than that proton can give better value.

I own Saga 2019. Oso in our household got 1.6L Iriz.
I'd prefer to drive the Iriz since it has much better pickup despite the lagging CVT clutching. The Punch CVT is something you can get used to after a while tbh, and the interior of both Persona/Iriz is subjectively better /more modern imo than the old-school budget feel of the Saga.

For long term I think a sedan is a more worthwhile option.

What you read is probably about the pre-facelift model. Current car has eliminated many of the CVT issues of the pre-facelift model

Not really, perhaps some isolated cases here and there. But that's normal and every other car brand would also have such isolated cases.

I would say because they are attracted to the 7 years loan - Low monthly installment plans.
And the famous - New car have warranty. Problem free. Then forced to service on time at SC.

Thirdly - New car, can show off to friends, grandma , grandpa, luckily not nenek moyang.

Oh well, it's TS's choice.
