With the in-depth comparison review of the Proton X70 out of the way, it’s time we shift our attention to Perodua’s first seven-seat SUV, the Aruz. For this shootout, we pitted the top-spec Aruz 1.5 Advance against the Honda BR-V 1.5V and Toyota Sienta 1.5V to see how they fare in the budget friendly market.

Of course, they’re not all like for like – the Aruz is a body-on-frame SUV, the BR-V is built based on a compact car, and the Sienta is practically a compact MPV. That said, all three cars feature a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine and are designed specifically to ferry seven, driver included.

If you’re looking to buy a family-friendly car around RM100k and below, this is the definite video review you won’t want to miss out. The next Driven episode, powered by the all-new Petronas Primax 95 with Pro-Drive, airs this Friday. Stay tuned, folks! ;)
