Perodua Myvi or Proton Saga Plus?

Thinking for a car that screams value-for-money? You could do a lot worse than the Proton Saga Plus and the Perodua Myvi, but which is better? We crunch the numbers to find out. 

If you are thinking of buying a new car, the Perodua Myvi will likely rise as a forefront contender as it has been a Malaysian best seller since its launch over 10 years ago.  It has made its mark in Malaysia as a leading icon in the local car industry. However, Perodua’s long-time rival, Proton, is challenging this with the Proton Saga. These two cars are covering the maximum share of the Malaysian economic auto market and begs the question, which do we choose? 

In 2015 Proton announced they would replace the Saga range by discontinuing the Saga SV, Executive and SE Models, and replace it with a single alternative, the Proton Saga Plus. It carries the price tag of RM36K, less than the RM40k spent on a Myvi. Since the alterations made from the original Saga range to the Saga Plus had no price change, the Myvi may have a run for its money. The main comparisons made between these two cars are laid out below to give you a general idea about features, engine, and specifications.
