The Hyundai Kona Is The Best Crossover In Malaysia (If Not For The Price)

The Hyundai Kona Is The Best Crossover In Malaysia (If Not For The Price)

This week, we discuss the reasons behind Cycle & Carriage offering VSS packages to their employees, and how a severe bottleneck in the semiconductor industry had forced carmakers all over the world to wind down productions. Meanwhile, we also take a look at BMW Malaysia's New Price List, Toyota's Kinto ONE Subscription Service, and Renault's EV reboot of the racy Renault 5 Turbo.

 

For our review, we're taking a look at the Hyundai Kona 1.6 Turbo and the fantastic qualities it has. With Hyundai's baby crossover packed to the brim with fantastic technologies, top-notch interior quality and design, and a quirky & fun exterior, what's stopping this from being the best-selling crossover in Malaysia? Well, being RM40k more expensive than a Proton X50, it's definitely the price. We review the car, and discuss why Malaysia's Automotive Industry needs to level the playing field to ensure brands like Hyundai continue operating in Malaysia.
