I just need a car not floating like a boat on highway (sorry bezza tho u took cared of me past few years)

If can be as fuel efficient as peroduas is ok, but normally im in city drive and go long distances (jb or penang) once a month

And also upgrade mainly for safety, now my bezza floating and dont even have ABS feel like driving plastic sometimes

Comfort as long aircond cold can already, high or low doesnt matter as long as is sedan and enough space for 3-4 people

Personally resale value im not so concerned because after upgrade will use for many years
Regarding looks im youngster lah..care abit, but because see ketam everywhere wanna drive something less people drive, then thinking proton oh wanna be patriotic but scare proton PARTS TIO KEK to me

Your criteria:
1) No floating feel
2) Fuel efficient as P2. Mainly city drive and sometimes long distance.
3) Safety +1
4) A/C janji sejuk. Must be a sedan and can fit nicely total 3-4 ppl.
5) Resale value = no care
6) Gaya mesti ada.

You did not mention price.
1) x50 (fits criteria 1, 3, 4 )
2) ketam (fits all except 6. You mentioned you want something different from the mainstream)
3) Mazda 3 (fits 1, 3, 4, 6). This is a rare car OTR. I cannot comment on criteria 2 as there are 2 types, 1.5L and 2.0L variant.
4) Corrolla Altis (fits 1, 3, 4, 6???). Abit rare but interior very uncle. 1.8L so u know lah. TNGA platform said to be very good.

and these remaining options you can consider but it depends on how you feel
5) Hyundai Elantra
6) Toyota Vios (GR)
7) Honda City
8) Nissan Almera


*my car library only have sushi and kimchi. So I can't give you conti car recommendations.

Hope this helps a little!

overpriced because CBU only. But then, it's funny also because some basic features they include in the highest end one only.

Well, im also a youngster like you in their around mid twenties. As I am looking at civic now, not a bad option tho. U can consider it man.

Proton has had a bad reputation in malaysia for its faulty parts and bad fuel economy

When i primary school my dad drive proton perdana and always complain this part rosak that part rosak finally sell n buy a touota
But over the years has it changed ? Is it better now?

Ayam should get proton perdana and sapok local brand or with that price get Honda Ketam because Honda is life?

Any proton perdana owner please review
