The evolution of extreme Proton rally cars – Does rallying have a future in Malaysia?

Malaysia is home to the Sepang international Circuit, Pasir Gudang circuit, and Dato’ Sagor circuit. We even used to have a racing circuit in Batu Tiga that was once used to film the Jackie Chan film, “Thunderbolt”. We love motorsports and have gone to great lengths to make it more accessible. While track racing may be a little more popular, one motorsport that we absolutely love is rallying. We may not have winter stages and tall pine trees, but that hasn’t stopped us from enjoying the sport. T

Honda Legend's Sensing Elite - world's first road legal L3 autonomous driving car

Honda has launched its new Honda Sensing Elite safety system in Japan, the world's first road level 3 (L3) autonomous driving system. The first Honda car to be equipped with this system is the updated 2021 Honda Legend EX.

The feature has yet to be approved by European authorities. The

Daniel Riccardo debunks driving sequences of our favourite car movies

When driving turns into an art form, it can captivate even people with the faintest interest in cars. This is why Hollywood churns out movies like Need for Speed, Baby Driver and even Fast and Furious, which, after 8 renditions, is really just an action movie unrelated to cars. The latest being Ford versus Ferrari. Watched that yet? Don’t worry this is not a spoiler post, though we would love to hear what Formula 1 driver Daniel Riccardo has to say about the racing sequences! Before we can get a

Warning lights on your car, what do they mean?

How many of you are aware of the warning lights on your car's meter cluster? You're not alone if you don't have a slightest clue at all. Unsurprisingly, some of us choose to ignore the warning lights entirely until the car eventually breaks down, and by the time that happens, it is a little too late to cry. While some warning lights may seem unimportant, it’s good to know what they mean and how to react next. Usually, warning lights illuminate whenever there is a problem with one or more of your

How driving through floods can damage your car, and here's how to do it safely

Driving on a rainy day requires extra concentration. The roads are slippery and visibility is lower than usual. Rainy days also create unwanted puddles, which if they’re big enough, can be called floods. You might have seen some cars wading through water like it’s nothing. You are tempted to do it too, sometimes. After all, water doesn’t get into your engine, right? Well, it depends on how deep the water is, how fast you drive through it, and how well your engine bay is protected. But as a gener

Are AWD cars completely useless for everyday driving?

The Audi Sport Quattro and Subaru WRX STI have cemented their names in the hall of fame of all-wheel-drive cars. AWD is good for performance and the fastest supercars of today mainly use AWD drivetrains. Today, just about any manufacturer has their own AWD system.
