    Boleh Land Election 2018

    Let me starts the discussion here as the other thread discussion on funnelling of funds. Malaysian government declares polling day a public holiday KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's federal government has declared May 9, polling day, a public holiday. This is to allow all Malaysians to fulfil their responsibilities as voters, said the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in a statement on Wednesday (Apr 11). “The declaration on the public holiday is made based on Section 8 of the Public Holidays Act 1951 for Peninsular Malaysia and the Labuan Federal Territory,” said the statement. The Malaysian Election Commission had on Tuesday announced dates for nomination and polling day for the country's 14th general election. Many had expressed concern that having the vote on a Wednesday, Malaysia's first weekday poll in nearly two decades, would affect turnout at the ballot boxes. Malaysians had reacted to announcement of the weekday polling date by taking to social media to offer transportation and funds to those who wanted to return to their hometowns to cast their ballots. Several Malaysian companies on Tuesday also declared May 9 a holiday for staff. Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/malaysia-election-polling-day-public-holiday-10127468

    2018 Nissan Serena e-POWER Nissan New Serena e-POWER Transmission The new Serena e-POWER does not have a transmission. It is 100% electric motor drive, and smooth acceleration starts from the moment you step on the pedal. In addition, the new Serena e-POWER is equipped with "e-POWER Drive" which can control the acceleration / deceleration at will by operation only with the accelerator pedal, and it is greatly helping to reduce the burden on the driver.

    Perodua Myvi 2018

    Seems like nobody started on the 2018 Perodua Myvi after searching through the folders . Perodua is going to launch the 2018 myvi (3rd generation)on 16/11/2017 The new car is slated to be vastly improved from its current model ,being outdated in terms of safety and specs. However, the new car is going to rectify all those flaws ,making the wrongs right. The car comes in the usual 1.3 and 1.5L engine guise and the tranny options are just a manual 5 speeder shifter or a dinosaur age 4 speed self shifter(yawn) Features in the 1.3L guise 1.3L Dual VVT-i four cylinder (94bhp/121Nm) 1.3L Standard G (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto or five speed manual LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 14 inch alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) Four airbags ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty 1.3L Premium X (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 14 inch alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) Four airbags ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Features in the 1.5L guise 1.5L Dual VVT-i four cylinder (106bhp/140Nm) 1.5L High (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 15 inch dual-tone alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Front bodykit and side skirts in a dual-tone finish Two tone rear bumper Rear spoiler Built-in toll reader (Integrated SmartTag) Six airbags 1.5L Advance (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 15 inch dual-tone alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Front bodykit and side skirts in a dual-tone finish Two tone rear bumper Rear spoiler Built-in toll reader (Integrated SmartTag) Six airbags Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) Pre-collision warning (PCW) Pre-collision braking (PCB) (Low speed autonomous braking) Front Departure Alert (FDA) Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC) Price in Malaysia ranges from RM 44,300 to RM 55,300 Colours available:Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Mystical Purple and Lava Red,Peppermint Green (1.3 only), Granite Gray(1.5 only) For what I think, this car, if it were to be imported, would be a force to reckoned with as it is so value for money that in the high spec guise, shames the Mitsubishi Space Star other than its brand name. If there is anything to add in after which, I will add in here. Moderators, if you all feel that there should not be a all new Myvi thread for the all new Myvi 2018, please kindly transfer it to an old topic. Thanks.

    2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

    Remember the eclipse? His SUV brother is born. Front foggies seems too big though. Remember Mit used to say they may evo their SUVs (somehow they retracted that statement recently). Maybe this is the model they are referring to. Wonder if this will arrive in SG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g79iujwY930
  13. The seventh generation Lexus ES will be the first to be introduced to markets in Western Europe. It follows the new LS flagship sedan and LC coupe in carrying forward a new chapter in Lexus design that has a much stronger emotional quality. The eye-catching styling, made possible by the use of an all-new Global Architecture - K (GA-K) platform, will have particular appeal to customers in the region, together with a more engaging driving experience and even higher safety provisions. The new ES is built on the all-new Global Architecture - K (GA-K) platform, giving Lexus the opportunity to explore the limits of mid-size luxury sedan design. The car is 65 mm longer (4,980 mm), 5 mm lower (1,445 mm) and 45 mm wider (1,865 mm) than its predecessor. The 50 mm longer wheelbase (2,870 mm) allows the wheels to be pushed closer to the car's corners, with wider front and rear treads (+10 and +37 mm). The range will include the ES 300h, on sale from December 2018, powered by a new self-charging hybrid system, together with the ES 200, ES 250 and ES 350 petrol engine models that will go on sale from September 2018.

    2018 / 2019 Ford Focus

    Ford is calling the 2019 Focus their most “accomplished and technically-competent Focus ever”, with the car boasting a new human-centric design philosophy meant to unite exterior styling with class-leading aerodynamics and a more spacious and well-built interior. “We wanted our all-new Focus to be a product customers fall in love with, and stay in love with,” said Ford Europe design director, Amko Leenarts. “Inside and out, our new design philosophy is about creating memorable moments of interaction that build and maintain the relationship between human being and machine.” By extending the wheelbase a full 53 mm, designers managed to position the wheels higher up into the sheet metal, thus reducing the perception of overall length and mass. Add the short overhangs and rearward cabin position and you end up with a dynamic-looking hatchback, one that is said to deliver “class-leading aerodynamic efficiency”. As for styling, even though Ford went with a recognizable front fascia, the rest of the car looks significantly different than the outgoing model, regardless of version. The all-new Focus can be ordered as a Vignale, ST-Line, Active and Titanium, in either 5-door or Estate form. The Vignale was given elegant ornamentation such as the satin aluminum finishes for the roof rails, fascia and rocker inserts, as well as a signature grille mesh. The ST-Line on the other hand looks more aggressive with its large diffuser and functional roof spoiler – it also comes with signature lower wing elements. Customers will be able to order their new Focus in one of 13 exterior colors, including Orange Glow, Desert Island Blue and the Vignale-exclusive four-coat dark Mulberry. The all-new Focus features a wide range of advanced technologies, among them Level 2 automation and several systems meant to make driving the car a more comfortable and less demanding experience. For example, Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies enhance safety, driving and parking, while ACC with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane-Centring will make long journeys less stressful. The ACC works at speeds of up to 200 km/h (125 mph). Then there’s the Adaptive Front Lighting System with Predictive curve light and Sign-based light. This tech pre-adjusts headlight patterns for maximum visibility before reaching a curve, intersection or roundabout. The new Focus is also the first Ford vehicle in Europe to feature a Head-up display (HUD). Other active safety features includes: Active Park Assist 2, Park-out Assist, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, Evasive Steering Assist, Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, Rear wide-view camera, Wrong Way Alert, Ford MyKey and Post-Collision Braking. Ford expects the all-new Focus to earn a 5-star safety rating during crash tests. They’re basing their expectations, in part, on the 40% increase in front crash load capability coming from the new C2 platform. Focus owners can choose between Ford EcoBoost petrol and EcoBlue diesel engines, said to meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards. They can be mated either to six-speed manual transmissions or a new eight-speed automatic. Opt for petrol and you’ll find yourself having to choose between a 1.0-liter EcoBoost (107g/km CO2) or a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost (122 g/km CO2). While the former is offered with 85 PS (83 HP), 100 PS (98 HP) and 125 PS (123 HP), the latter is more punchy at either 150 PS (148 HP) or 182 PS (179 HP). The diesel options are as follows: new 1.5-liter EcoBlue (91 g/km CO2) with either 95 PS (93 HP) or 120 PS (118 HP) – both offering 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, and a 2.0-liter EcoBlue (112 g/km CO2) good for 150 PS (148 HP) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. Ultimately, it’s only the 125 PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost, 150 PS 1.5-liter EcoBoost, 120 PS 1.5-liter EcoBlue and 150 PS 2.0-liter EcoBlue units that can be mated to Ford’s new 8-speed automatic. Everything else will only work with a 6-speed manual. T.B.C.
  16. Since this is a new model, I think it warranty a new thread to set it apart from the old Swifts The official announcement with happen at Frankfurt Motorshow next week. Anyone as hyped up as me? The info we know so far: Car is slightly larger than previous Swifts, but you cannot tell unless you compare side by side. 1.4 Direct Injected intercooled (front mounted) Turbo, Euro 6 compliant 140ps @ 5500rpm 230nm @ 2500-3500rpm (That's higher than normal turbo range, optimized more for performance) 970kg for MT, 990kg for AT 6MT or tipronic 6AT(They ditched the CVT) 17" rims cruise control and Bluetooth with LED display fabric and leather hybrid sport seats Collision mitigation for higher JDM spec, not sure if it will come locally. JDM release date​ this Month 2017 so PI can start bringing them soon. 0-100 not recorded but based on specs and weight should be in the sub-7 secs The cheapest trim is selling at 1.7 milllion yen, after conversion is around $21kSGD for the OMV.Based calculations of PARF and current cat B COE, the car should be around 120k bracket plus minus. Anyone's radar on this? Close up Interior Zhnged version

  20. After its introduction of its current form in 1998, all new Jimny coming next year, after 20 years. Next-gen Suzuki Jimny 4×4 undisguised images leakedhttps://paultan.org/2017/08/25/next-gen-suzuki-jimny-4x4-undisguised-images-leaked/ The Suzuki Jimny has been around in its current third-generation form for almost a decade now, but the tiny off-roader is set to get a reboot at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show that happens in October. Images of the next-generation Suzuki Jimny have now been leaked ahead of its Tokyo debut, and it shows the new car undisguised. The images you see here are likely to be from official presentation slides. They show a very square cut 4×4 that recalls the second-generation Jimny’s more basic design. Tall sides, big glass areas and vertical slats on the grille provide the link to Jimnys past, but the toy-like face is also modern and fits in well with Suzuki’s cool range of small cars – the Alto, Hustler and Ignis are all cute little things. The Jimny is no modern crossover, and will likely retain all of its famous off-road capabilities. A tailgate-mounted spare wheel keeps it real and chunky overfenders and black bumpers hint at its purpose. There’s also a look at the new Jimny’s interior. The dashboard is typically shallow and upright, and while there are similarities with the Ignis, it’s clear that Suzuki went for a ‘tough’ look with overtly rugged cues – see the instrument binnacle and exposed “bolts”. There’s a big infotainment screen in the middle. No specs leaked along with the pics, but possible engines could include Suzuki’s 1.0 litre three-cylinder “Boosterjet” turbo and a naturally-aspirated 1.2 litre four-cylinder unit from the Ignis. As a kei-car in Japan, a 660cc turbo triple is regulation. Suzuki Jimny Replacement Spotted On Public Roads For The First Timehttp://www.carscoops.com/2017/08/suzuki-jimny-replacement-spotted-on.html
