After ranting and complaining about our locally made cars, I said wait a minute. All we do is talk negatively about our national cars,most of the times. We can pin point each and every flaw the Proton or the Perodua vehicles. So lets talk about the best Malaysian car in history so far. Let us take into consideration of performance, comfort, safety, handling, value etc. It can be as old as a Proton Saga or as new as a Myvi.

So tell lets discuss and argue which Malaysian made car was and is the best.

Actually myvi is famous. Haha.. Go where, sure can see MYVI.. MYVI not really good in pick up. But once myvi reach 4k-5k rpm, the dohc will work perfectly, the car will get more power.. In term of FC, full tank can go Rm200++ only ler.. And handling is normal. But compare with wira, wira handling is better. Myvi suspension need to change to get more good handling. Spacious? MYVI was in a K-car family, so we know the space la.. Hehe.. I still vote for Wira and lovely putra. Hehe.

Maybe we can do it this way...

2 doors - Putra, gti comes a close second
reason (why your choice) - sporty, powerful, good handling and a bigger boot space compared to the gti. even tho gti has the handling by lotus, i choose putra because of the boot advantage... u never know when the extra space might come in handy

town car - kelisa, savvy is second
reason - zippy, compact and easy to manuver in town traffic.. good fc even tho in town driving...good weight to power ratio and it has an established track record as a very good town car...

long distance car / sedan - waja, with wira a close second
reason - even tho wira boot space is quite spacious, my choice is waja (please leave problems out for once) because it has a tougher body, more comfortable ride, big boot space and it handles well stock out of factory...

========

errr.... good enough ?
feedback please

i guess they sells the vios in the 90's eh? When we say the best malaysian car surely its the car that has served all malaysian all these years.

IS there a person in malaysia that has not been in a wira before? ITs the BEST selling car of proton and has sold millions in malaysia.

IT served malaysian whether they are going to buy groceries or are going for a balik kampung trip. IT could take all those 20 plastic bag at Giant/Carefour and could take luggage of 5 ppl+extra balik kampung stuff(TV, matress, pillow. seriously my family takes all this things to balik kampung in a Wira)

WHen it breaks every mechanic in malaysia knows how to fix it and spare parts are abundant.(and cheap too!)

Its the choice of car in the modding communities in malaysia with the unlimited possibilities in modification. Even a newbie would know what to mod in a wira and if u are not satisfied with the engine A better engine is waiting at the half cut shop waiting for u( iwth a reasonable price also)

hehe so now i think we know what is the BEST MALAYSIAN CAR. thumbup.gif

Maybe we can do it this way...

2 doors - Putra, gti comes a close second
reason (why your choice) - sporty, powerful, good handling and a bigger boot space compared to the gti. even tho gti has the handling by lotus, i choose putra because of the boot advantage... u never know when the extra space might come in handy

town car - kelisa, savvy is second
reason - zippy, compact and easy to manuver in town traffic.. good fc even tho in town driving...good weight to power ratio and it has an established track record as a very good town car...

long distance car / sedan - waja, with wira a close second
reason - even tho wira boot space is quite spacious, my choice is waja (please leave problems out for once) because it has a tougher body, more comfortable ride, big boot space and it handles well stock out of factory...

========

errr.... good enough ?
feedback please

hmm i think your review is fair enough. thumbup.gif hardly disagree with any of ur opinion.

Best selling family car coz we were forced to. Thx to heavy taxation. If not Vios/City will be the best family car.

u really think vios/city will be best family car if it is mass produced like how wira did? especially in malaysia?
besides, try fitting 1dad, 1mom n 3teenager/adult children.. i would not call that comfort.. so it will never be best family car imo.. tried that once from kl balik temerloh, 4adults, 1 children (11years old) doh.gif sumore the car is quite suffering especially at karak highway.. n that is the VTEC model with CVT tech..

Well its not Perodua's fault right? Who ask them to be so...er..slow? Pesona is actually nuthing much,just a longer version of Gen2. Why didnt they produce it earlier.
*
nothing much of cosmetic changes as compare to gen2 but the price is smile.gif
and it eventually offer more value for money option than myvi.. since they elongate gen2 to produce persona, i do believe gen2 price will be drop below persona, which give myvi another blow smile.gif
like i said, who want an supermini when u can get hatch/sedan? unless, of course, if u r fans of supermini or simply u have the mentality perodua=daihatsu=toyota lolz

I wud say Satria GTi, t change my mind of local made car, I mean, when people talk about Proton, means about cheap + no quality car + low class car, but for GTi, it change my mind, with powerful engine, nice outlook, n tough body...

My fren who never sit in a GTi b4, he sat my GTi n gav me the same comment, "GTi change my mind about Proton, I give it 70/100, best Malaysian car."

Thumbs up! GTi!

I must say in my point of view the Satria GTi was quite the car, looked good too. I saw one that was actually converted into a police car, kinda made you think twice before putting up a chase.

Anyway I never had the opportunity to feel the difference between the earlier models of the GTi which were supposedly far better in performance and tuned by lotus. was this true? or just a myth?

some ppl think only better FC cars are good
some ppl think only low maintenance cars are good
some ppl think only value for money cars are good

for me, in malaysia good cars must free hassle and better FC...
for me, in oversea good cars must have performance...

i like ur thinking. There's no such thing as best car. It all depends on consumers need.

And from the looks of it, there hasn't been a car like Myvi that hit the right chord with Malaysia consumers.
(SAGA and Wira don't count...coz people don't have much choices then at the low end market).

Let me explain how this works. We all buy Malaysian car not because we want to, but we need to. With the price and model limitation for sale, we don't have much of any options.

I bought a Myvi not because everyone say I should buy one, because I've seen enough information, since there are plenty of guinea pigs for me study.

As for Savvy selling better than Myvi in UK,
That's because they already have Daihatsu Sirion there with whole lot better looking interior.

Still the total sales of the savvy and myvi in the UK were far behind the total sales of a particular popular car model in the UK. I think the monthly sales of the ford focus is easily more than the total annual sales of the savvy + myvi all together.

So who wins? Who cares about 3rd world mentality? wink.gif

yeah... same chassis,same engine... but u can confirm 100% same quality??? re-think about it...

FYI, oversea car is much cheaper than malaysia A LOT... my friend stay at Aus, owned a Lancer easily, but he can afford City Vtec at malaysia... while i sitting his City vtec and he rev his car kau kau, i tell him vtec quite impressive response, higher torque... but he said so-so for him... WTF... obviously his Lancer have higher CC than this a lot...

if i stay at oversea car, for sure will own a performance car, WTH want to own a low quality car since the oversea performance car selling with cheap price...

for malaysia, malaysian cant afford expensive car because of stupid tax, that why quite a lot of rebadge car, lower the quality and sell cheaper price

earlier gti is said to have more power because of the different ECU used... the FC is higher but it justify the higher power output and higher top speed...

the later batch are all running on ECU with more economical mode

If i not mistaken, the myvi is cheaper by 300 pounds to the sirion. But to me, if i in the UK i will go for the sirion as i know japanese car will have better QC and value over the UK unlike cars from the paciffic rim. But if i really over there, why bother going for a sirion or myvi where i have tons of choices for a city driven superminis, from the fiat panda, peugout 207, renault clio and many more. wink.gif
