Well... insofar as taking you from point "A" to point "B" with no unscheduled stops at point "C" (being a point between points "A" and "B") the Kancil/Nippa is hard to fault.
However the fact remains that for what it is the Kancil/Nippa is HIDEOUSLY expensive despite being the cheapest car you can buy in Malaysia.
I'm not sure how much of this is due to Perodua's pricing policy and how much of it is due to the Malaysian tax structure, but 30k is more than most people make in a year. In contrast a VW Polo is available in the UK for considerably less than what the average Joe Bloggs would make in a year.
You park em side by side- Polo vs Kancil/Nippa. Then tell me which one is cheap and which one is expensive.

Yeah, I agree.
Go from point A to B in the most economical manner, save and buy a fancy car, lease the cheap car for people who appreciate it/.

Kancil kancil. The way you prove to be useful is so ironic considering your flimsy bodywork suggests you would like to see me dead inside of you. And since you're so small I can't replace parts like I do on bigger cars. You're so small I have to get complete replacement kits for everything you find mechanically problematic...I'd rather pay monthly installments on a better used car rather than keeping up with your bitchy maintenance cost. I'm only glad I got you for free, otherwise I'd drive you into the nearest Perodua salesman your huge windshield can let me see. Other than that, I'd stay away from having any relationships until I get you replaced.

I have been driving my Kancil since 2003. Yes, I do agree that this is a small car. However, it is equally reliable to a big car. It still serves the mean of my daily transport. It brings me to everywhere.
Some people in the city saved money to buy an expensive car, but ended up suffer from high installment amount and high maintenance and fuel costs. They thought they will have good "face" or show off to their friends and relatives that how successful they are. But is that really worth to do that? Is other people really see you high because of that?
If you are rich enough to own a big car, by all means go ahead. But I don't see any rational why such rich people need to give bad comments to this so called "fancy car". This is totally different from your social class.
My advice to those big car drivers, don't think that your car is big enough to run at 160km/h or 180km/h on highway. And keep flashing your lights to front drivers. This is too rude. You think you are hero? Who doesn't know how to drive fast on highway with such a big cc car? Perhaps the compound penalty amount is too cheap for you, BUT Please be considerate and think of others' safety.

I just buy a secondhand Kancil (850 EZ) as a second car. My first car is Wira 1.5. (manual) But the things is compare the two car Kancil is more comfortable and save my budget (fuel). Thank's my new kancil.

I totally agree with those Kancil owners. I am a proud owner of 2 cars. One is EX850 Kancil, and the other, a Juara. I have been driving bigger cars before but as our friends said, boy oh boy, maintenance and fuel consumption, it really eats up your pocket. I personally feels that the most important factor is how large is our family? Do we need such big cars to show everyone 'LOOK, I AM DRIVING A BMW'!!!
I am at my 50's with a family of 3 members only. For my work travels in town, the Kancil just do fine and when I travel with my family for holidays, I use my Juara, a really fun car to drive actually. For me, I am looking at the practicality of usage than to boast. What else will I be looking for? I have a little cute Kancil to move around in town and a tough Juara to deliver me to wherever I need to spend my holidays. I have travel in my Kancil to most parts of Malaysia and I driven my Juara to the northern Thai border next to LAOs. No problem. It all takes some care and maintenance.
