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 ... Read review

Well, i'll just explain the reason to you further below. Name: Perodua Nippa. Nippa actually gives no meaning. The actual local name is called Kancil, which means (Mousedeer) in Malay language.

PERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR- I'd DO HER!

Advantagescompact, cute, cheap, low insureance, great second car for the family, or 1st car for new drivers!

Disadvantagestinny, feels cheap, image is crap, colours are tacky, dealers spread far and wide!

"...was replaced by a new perodua model. GX FORM and SPEC! ================== All nippas are 5 door, 3door models are not an option, this is good consodering it was cheapest new car on road at little over £5500!! There is only 2 specs in the nippas range EX and GX GX is bout £800 more, but hell you get a lot more, the GX boasts, Sunroof, Radio casttee, alarm, metalic paint, plush wheel trims, as the Ex is as basic as well basic! But Gx is probably ..." Read review

Short and to the point

Advantagesprice, size

Disadvantagesdepreciation, 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 Nippa has a basic specifacation though stereos, sunroofs and central locking can be addded by the dealer. This car shows its age withn a haphazard arrangement ..." Read review

The Perodua Nippa

AdvantagesVery cheap to buy and run

DisadvantagesLooks 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 - only other ultra-cheapies like Cuore, cinquecento and Suzuki Alto can come close. Reliability Based on the reliable old Daihatsu Mira, so components ..." Read review

Maybe I should start an enthusiasts club

Advantagesprice, parking, fuel consumption, very obedient always tries hard to accommodate your wishes

Disadvantagesgear stick sheath on mine refuses to remain anchored

"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 with those strange yellow aliens on poles, I cannot comment too deeply on mechanical aspects due to my total ignorance of the subject but she does as she ..."
