At the end of the day, vintage is the way to go we guess?

If you’re a car owner, you’d never get over the paranoia of your car getting stolen whenever you park at a quiet place. But thankfully, the number of car theft cases recorded in Malaysia during 2020 reduced by 40% as compared to 2019 according to statistics posted by VTREC (Vehicle Theft Reduction Council of Malaysia Berhad).

In 2020, the total of stolen vehicles came up to 7,400 units consisting of:

  • Motorcycles (54%)
  • Private cars (40%)
  • Commercial Vehicles (6%)

For everyone expecting Myvi to be at the top of the list, join the club! It turns out the ever-iconic Proton Wira was the most stolen car not only in 2020 but in 2019 as well with 564 units!

If you’re feeling doubtful about the Proton Wira, it has been one of Proton’s longest-serving models and has been sold for over 16 years until its discontinuation in 2009. Proton Wira is not only popular locally but has also gained international acclaim thanks to a pair of twin brothers from the Netherlands who decided to take it upon themselves to further cement the Proton Wira’s reputation in international motoring by building a ‘Ring Taxi’ based off on the Proton Wira.

Which car on the list surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments section!
