Top 10 most stolen vehicles in Malaysia in 2020 – Proton Wira, Iswara, Toyota Hilux take podium spots

During the launch of its Vehicle Theft Public Awareness Campaign 2021, the Vehicle Theft Reduction Council of Malaysia (VTREC) has shared a list of the top 10 most stolen vehicles in Malaysia last year.

The Proton Wira once again topped the list as the most stolen model in 2020, with 353 units reported stolen, although this is less than 564 units in 2019. Joining the Wira is another Proton model, the Iswara, with 273 units reported stolen, while the Toyota Hilux remained the most nicked non-national model, rounding out the podium with 209 units recorded.

Other familiar names on the list include the Perodua Kancil in fourth with 144 units, followed by the Myvi (131 units), the Saga (110 units) and Waja (104 units). The Honda Civic (85 units) and City (75 units) are now higher up in the list compared to 2019’s results, taking eighth and ninth place respectively. Meanwhile, fewer Toyota Vellfire cars were stolen in 2020, with 60 units recorded instead of 138 units in 2019.

Due to the movement control orders that loomed over much of 2020, the average number of vehicles reported stolen daily last year was 20 units, which is 37% less than the average of 32 units in 2019. On a related note, 7,400 cases were reported last year compared to 11,675 cases in 2019.

      After stealing the current civic the thief will have a nightmare becoz later he realize that its so ugly…origami gone wrong…and decides to return it back to honda showroom becoz he feels the owner shouldnt have bought it in the first place…

    Honda civic is a car that many people dream to own. that’s why the thieves steal them as it’s a highly prized item.

    • There are still quite a number of folks who appreciate the reliable simplicity of the 1980’s & 1990’s MMC-based engineering that is found in the Iswara & the Wira.

      • Many also loved BLM era Sagas which why they are in the listing. Popular cars will forever remain popular.

          I dont doubt that many people love Proton but i think that these cars are stolen for their spare parts since they’re very common = high demand for spare parts

            Why they need spareparts? Cuz Proton cars are still in demand. Why are still demand? Cuz people still loves their Protons.

    Watch out for Iswara, Wira or Waja especially those heavily tinted ones. Accesorised with parangs.

    Its not stolen, but the owner declare stolen to get an insurance. Better money than you sell to market. Who wants Wira and Iswara?
