The little new cars for Pajama workers in Malaysia

Remember the ol' Daihatsu Charade... We haven't seen it for a while in Malaysia, because, all these while, its breeds of several generations been marketed under different names by a local partner company, made national auto company - Perodua. Since the early 90s, Kancil has been the favorite money-saving car to moves families of big households (it's common to see the tiny Kancil squeeze 6-7 persons!). It's also a favorite for teenagers and women. Then came Kelisa in early 2000s. Today, Kancil and Kelisa roams the roads of the nations in just about any town, big or small. Then came Proton Savvy and Perodua Myvi, the larger siblings. Both went thru stiff competitions, and it's still hard to call who won, between Proton and Perodua.

Perodua however reserved another secret weapon. And last night, it officially unveiled the new model for immediate sales - Perodua Viva. There really are cheap for those with less cash - from under RM30K! (about USD8000).

Read more about it below (information from Wikipedia), and check out the nice photos posted by Paul Tan on his blog.
