The 2008 Subaru WRX Hatchback is Highly Undervalued (For Now)

The 2008 Subaru WRX Hatchback is Highly Undervalued (For Now)

In this week's show, Daniel gives us 5 reasons why the end-of-life vehicle scrapping scheme won't happen in Malaysia, and Ariff reports on Volvo and Polestar going public in an effort to raise funds to achieve their ambitious targets.

In Part 2, we go through the car launches, first reacting to a teaser of the upcoming Honda Civic Type R, then the local launch of lovable Suzuki Jimny in Malaysia, a new pickup truck called the JMC Vigus Pro, and a reimagined Land Rover Defender that goes by the name: Ineos Grenadier 4x4.

Finally, our Used Car Buying Guide takes a look at (probably) the most underappreciated version of the Subaru WRX - the 2008-2013 Version 10 Hatchback. With its unconventional rear end, and somewhat unexciting sporting attributes, it was the ugly duckling in a line of historic and iconic Subarus. Now worth somewhere between RM50k-RM120k, Daniel thinks it's worth a shout today, as he predicts that prices of these cars will soon rise as a result of the obsession with Japan Domestic Market (JDM) cars.
