The first big difference is the engine size.
Also, the waja competes with cars like the altis, ford lynx, sentra..etc.
Whereas the perdana is running with the accord, sonata, camry pack, although the car is starting to show its age by now in that company of cars, as it is still an older model mitsubishi recycled by proton but still a pretty capable car.

Having experienced both cars I'd recommend that you take the PV6 (Auto).
imho, I find the PV6 a more superior car in terms of long distance capability and comfort. It is after all the flagship luxury model and is one of the better locally assembled offerings within it's price range.
In terms of performance, I've been (pleasantly) surprised on the road by other PV6 in stock form in mid-range acceleration when I was overtaking them in my Putra. The PV6 pickup is very good from 80km/h onwards up till about 160km/h.

Haven't drove the Waja 1.8 hard to assess the high-speed handling only did straight line testing and low speed cornering approx 110km/h to 120km/h into left-4 and right-4s, the car was still too new with less than 300kms on the odometer.
however, handling is very much dependant on the skills of the driver, so i'll leave it at that.
The PV6 is a big and heavy car so i wouldn't recommend chucking it into corners, it is after all a good long distance cruiser and not a performance car.

Spot on Joe Prince! And my PV6 is currently running very well with the two front tyres that were originally from your car.
Pls let me know if there are any more used 16" rubber for PV6, I would surely be looking for a pair this year end.
