  • The rise and revitalization of Mitsubishi's Ralliart beyond WRC and Dakar

    When it comes to falls from grace, millennial automotive enthusiasts would often mention one example – the death of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. From the 1990s to the 2000s, the Three Diamonds transformed an otherwise anonymous front-wheel drive (FWD) sedan into a gravel-spitting four-wheel drive (4WD) monster. The Lancer Evolution went through ten generations but throughout most of its 14 years, it was proving its excellence in the World Rally Championship (WRC). It may have only won 1 manu

  • Introducing the Alfa Romeo Tonale in Malaysia: Not the Alfa your dad told you about

    Alfa Romeo is a brand that is marked by a niche but passionate following in Malaysia, no less with a presence reaching back to the 1960s. However, it wasn’t without a chequered history of highs and lows, and a revolving door of local distributors that have all touted big plans only to fall short thereafter. The last was Sime Darby Auto Italia which dropped the brand back in 2013. With the recent establishment of Stellantis Malaysia, there are telltale signs that the brand will be relaunched in M

  • We took a spin (safely) at the old Sungai Besi runway for Volvo's Safety Driving Experience

    Volvo is a name that you would either associate with cars that resemble bricks or cars that emphasise safety. The Swedish carmaker would happily acknowledge both but it has gone over the whole brick joke a decade ago with its current line-up looking like smoothened-out ice cubes instead. However, safety has been a philosophy that Volvo proudly proclaims. Since Volvo’s engineer Nils Bohlin invented the 3-point seatbelt in 1959, Volvo has been at the forefront of automotive safety innovation. It s

  • One more reason why the Mazda Lantis is more than a '90s playboy car - It unites Malaysians

    The Mazda Lantis has the recipe for 1990s automotive goodness. It has a curvaceous yet clean design that combines sporty liftback practicality with sexy pillarless doors. That look made it the perfect car for many youthful Gen-Xers in Malaysia who are rich enough to persuade their parents or save up to buy a brand-new 323F Lantis nearly 3 decades ago. Malaysia in the 1990s was also in its own booming economy period with national projects that aimed to show the world that this Southeast Asian nat
