Typically malaysia parking lot size is 2.4m x 4.8m.....

Recently I was checking out two cars for my broinlaw who is interested to get a new one. Below is what I found pertaining the length of the car.

1. Honda Accord 2008 - 4960mm
2. Nissan Sylphy - 4600mm

Based on the current length of a typical carpark (as per byelaw), Honda Accord will have his head or butt portruded out from the parking space by 0.5feet......

How lerh? I think other cars like Cefiro, Camry, BMW 5series onwards, etc may have the approx same length or longer...

Should they review the parking lot size?

If they review, they'll probably make it smaller!

Same with lanes on major roads. Seems there is an allowed range of lane widths. Some roads have 2 or 3 narrow lanes such that a lot of people drive over 2 lanes!

Then, I also notice more and more loaders carrying full length containers entering light industrial areas. They have such a problem getting round corners and getting into a unit to load/unload that they block off the roads all the time.

Issue is a conflict between land use maximisation and payload maximisation. Well, who's in charge?

in the recent urban car design competition, futuristic urban cars are getting smaller, not bigger.
summore with the increase petrol price (now and in the future), big sedan shld be on the way out.

unfortunately the "big man" mentality is still very rampant in malaysia. The bigger the car, the bigger the ego. can't help it.

With the world's population getting bigger by day, it should be the case of making thing smaller, not bigger.

Summary:-
should we be looking at getting a smaller car instead of buying a bigger car that can't fit the car porch or typical car park lot?

I got a feeling that nowadays parking lots are getting smaller so that they can squeeze in more cars in the lot.. So bigger cars have to sacrifice to park at jockey area ler.. hehe.. :lol:

yeahlo...
parking lots r getting smaller...
at times, its a struggle getting in and out of ur car @ certain parking lots.
It's not tat the oth car dunno how to park,
it's juz tat the "yellow/white" line seems pretty close...

While most car manufacturer is trying to have more space for luxury cars...
their effort didn't go well wif building planner or consultant and thus,
all business area / malls will maximize parking space to accomodate more cars as well as charging ridiculous parking fees by the hr.
So by all means, get bigger car and ferry more ppl, be it kancil (5 ppl) or super luxury tat can fit 5 or Super MPV wif 9 ppl, u still pay for 1 car entry kekeke...
