It’s a brand and fresh new year now, and I hope that all of you have had a very good start. A lot of people I know are still in holiday moods, but things should expect to pick up very soon. With the Alza just launched we probably won’t see anything major from Perodua this year, but Proton should have interesting stuff in store – we could be looking at a Persona facelift launch this year.

For those who are curious, the following are the top 20 most trafficked pages on this blog from the 1st of January 2009 to the 31st of December 2009. Alza-related pages are tops naturally, as the plateau of Exora traffic which launched earlier in the year had actually extended from mid-2008 onwards.

Another interesting metric to look at is what people are looking for when they hit this site from the search engines.

This month we’ll bring you live coverage from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit for the first time – our previous live coverages have only been for the Tokyo Motorshow which only happens once every two years. Stay tuned for some interesting updates from Detroit – from what I heard there are some interesting announcements from the Detroit player that’s doing the best so far – Ford.
