RM60,000, what car can you buy?

In this blog entry, I'm covering another "What can you buy with this budget?". I got some questions by few of my friends asking me "What can I buy with RM60,000?."

Without further ado, here's my lists of cars you can buy with this budget. Note that you have limited choices (ONLY 11) if you are buying a new car. Think "used cars" and suddenly YOU HAVE 43 CHOICES. Yes, 43 different cars from different categories (More on that later).


1) Proton Persona SE
2) Proton WAJA CPS (M)
3) Proton Gen-2 CPS
4) Perodua MyVi SE (with this budget)
5) Naza Suria (Picanto)
6) Mitsubishi TRITON Lite 2.5D
7) Hyundai Getz 1.4
8) Hyundai i10 (RM48,000)
9) Proton Satria Neo 1.6 Hi-line
10) Toyota Avanza 1.3 (M)
11) Perodua Viva EZi(A) (RM44,000)


As I mentioned earlier, we have 43 different options if you are buying used cars. The choices are so wide that I have to categorise it into the following:

NOTE: All the above are models available "OFFICIALLY" in Malaysia. There's others such as Mazda RX7, Nissan Silvia S13, S14, EVO III and Subaru WRX Version 4. But they are personally/parallel or grey importers available in LIMITED Units. If you found 1, it's going to be "buyers' market", ie. Value determined by buyer. Another category also belongs to "Buyer's market", NICHE and/or RARE brand/s, they are cars such as: Saab, Opel, TVR, Lotus, Jaguar, Maserati and Porsche.

I would like to end this blog entry by saying that in the end it's up to your individual needs and requirements. Different people have different taste, that's why in this blog entry, I don't specifically recommend any car here. Instead, I just list out the lists of cars you can buy for RM60,000 most of them in alphabetically order.

That's all folks, thanks for having the patience to read this blog entry.
