“Size does matter?”

published 18/06/2004

small, super machine to combat traffics

scary, annoying

Perodua really gave me a shock when i came to know that it was also in sale in UK. I'd really never expected this car to actually being quite successful in establishing it's market so far away from home.(Malaysia). Basically, i do not like this car. Well, i'll just explain the reason to you...

“Short and to the point”

published 01/01/2001

price, size

depreciation, no credibility

The tiny and tinny Nippa managed to remain unknown to most British motorists despite outselling the much acclaimed Alfa Romeo 166 in 1998. The Nippas body shell is a re-incarnation of the old Daihatsu Mira - and this is no bad thing considering that Daihatsu are masters of the city car in Japan...

“The Perodua Nippa”

published 09/05/2004

Very cheap to buy and run

Looks and feels cut-price

Value You're buying basic here - five doors and four wheels; EX does have a folding rear seat and a clock, and GX boasts rear wash/wipe; two-year/24,000 mile warranty isn't too stingy, though. Costs Cheap, cheap, cheap... Over 50 mpg in normal use, low service costs, reasonable resale value...

I bought my 97 nippa in May with 28000 on the clock and we have now passed 34000 without problem (touch wood) .She doesnt accellerate too well so overtaking has to be kept to a minimum but she happily cruises and has an enviable ability to saunter along at 30 / 40 when the roadsides are littered...

“Short but not sweet.”

published 23/09/2003

Cheap, Economical and Easy to park.

Not very comfortable.

A Perodua Nippa is definately a city car, ideal for small parking spaces and very good on petrol, but when you talk about performance it remains at the bottom of the list. The car itself is very cheap under £5000 but has hardly any comforts of most cars these days. You would have an awful task of...

“Good all round little car”

published 13/09/2005

Cheap to run

Not much power when you need it

Whilst Proton have certainly established a Malaysian beachhead in this country, Perodua aimed to make an assault on the British market with the Nippa citycar. Carrying the title of Britains cheapest new car, the Nippa certainly made a few friends with its aggressive pricing and tried and tested...

“Suitable in town”

published 04/06/2004

Suitable for town use

not meant for long distances

This is use to be my brother's car which I frequently borrow until he sold it last month. Few of my freinds own it too. The car is easy to be manouver around town- better in automatic transmission . it's kind of economical in petrol usage too. but you can't expected power for this price of car...

A fantastic, cheap to run car, and great on insurance, the only downside is tht it is basic and has nothing in the way of, for example back window wipers and things like that. Although i am a college student and it is my first car, i think it is fantastic for that.

This car is really the best. We've had ours for nearly three years (an R reg brought for £995) and he is just a fantastic little run around. We love him so much, we even call him Keko. It is a little like a baked bean tin, and the saftey isn't great. However, he is so light, power steering isn't needed and is great for parking in small spaces. When going around roundabouts, there is a slight tipping sensation when going a little too fast, hence another nickname of Perodua Tippa. It hasn't ever tipped though! As the credit crunch is taking over, the fuel consumption is ideal - £17 filled the tank today, which as a town runabout, will last two weeks! Highly reccommended!

I got the Perodua Nippa from a friend, for free, so i didnt expect much. Although, i was pleasantly surpirsed. Im 17, and i love cars from the 80s / 90s -- the shape, noise, interior. Admitedly the Nippa comes a bit short in terms of equipment, but it does what it says on the tin, Nips around town. In terms of Performance, the 0-30 acceleration isnt too bad, it just becomes a terrifying sardine can with a lawnmower engine at anything over 55mph. All in all its a great little car with character and manouvers and parks flawlessly. You can pick one up for dirt cheap, although they are prone to rust if not looked after well. Great little car, would reccoment to any first time driver on a buget.
