Parents, be honest, have you ever ever struggled together with your child’s homework? I don’t have kids, but I’m pretty confident. Confident that I’ll pull out all the remaining hair on my head in case you give me a sheet of highschool maths. It shouldn’t be that way, right? We all know what it’s, we’ve studied it before, and a few may need even scored As in the topic back within the day. Friends, it’s all about practice. Similar to in sports, you possibly can’t just show up after a few years away and curl one into the highest corner…

Where did 2023 go? Perodua kicked off last 12 months with the launch of the D74A Axia. It felt recent, but was way back in February (they made us work hard on Valentine’s Day). The all-new DNGA Axia starts at a better price point, leaving a spot for the Axia E – essentially a kosong previous-gen Axia – to fill. The ‘Axia Rahmah’ popped eyes with a RM22,000 sticker price in June. One latest model, one facelift. That’s what Perodua does in a 12 months, and the repurposed old Axia accomplished the transient for the market leader in 2023. How…

Proton’s latest three-box sedan is handsome in a conventional, old-school type of way, however it’s a reasonably tall automotive with high sides – in actual fact, all the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3 are lower than the S70. If you wish to make the S70 look more ground-hugging, the bodykit is offered as an option. The RM3,130 Aerokit Pacakge includes front and rear skirts, side skirts and a boot spoiler. On the launch, Proton announced that…

Click to enlarge Whoa, what do we have now here? Only a render, after all, but Theophilus Chin’s latest creation shouldn’t be completely a flight of fancy – you’ll be able to do it at home too, soon. Christened ‘Proton S70 GT’ by its creator, the vision was of a high-performance version of the S70 inspired by the C99 Wira 1.8 EXi DOHC. “That Wira was built to satisfy the homologation requirement of at the least 2,500 units set by the World Rally Championship… I imagine Proton making a performance-oriented S70 called the S70 GT, fitted with the 1.5 TGDi…
