Forget the CR-X, the Honda CR-Z was a fine successor to another Honda legend

From the BMW 8 Series to the Toyota Supra, it seems every old name is making a comeback. Even relatively new ones too. Or if the recent news of Honda trademarking the CR-Z name is anything to go by.Calm down now. As we have pointed out previously, companies do trademarks simply to ensure nobody else uses the name. There is little evidence to support the claim many sites are banging out that a second-generation CR-Z is imminent.However, the news does warrant a little introspection to ask the impo

Honda CR-Z trademarked, but maybe you shouldn’t get too excited

If you’ve been following recent news, you would have noticed that there are numerous reports of Honda trademarking its iconic CR-Z nameplate.That has since snowballed into outlets speculating that Honda could be reintroducing its sporty little hybrid, but is it really the case?We reckon that the CR-Z may not return so soon, due to the following reasons.Car companies tend to trademark names to prevent other companies from using it. It does not really mean that Honda will adopt the CR-Z

Honda CR-Z: Kereta sport hibrid buatan Jepun kini serendah RM43k, baloi beli ‘second hand’?

Used Honda CR-Z for RM 43k: Is it safe to buy the sport hybrid second-hand?

The Honda CR-Z needs no introduction. The sporty hybrid was an instant hit when it was first introduced to the world as the spiritual successor of the Honda CR-X. Though it was well-favoured by car lovers Honda decided to discontinue the car worldwide so you can only find the sport hybrid coupe on sale in the used car market.

Pros and Cons: Honda CR-V - Spacious and practical, but is it enough?

Some cars become so synonymous within its segment, that more often than not, the segment gets named after it. That applies even in a Malaysian context. Trucks? Toyota Hilux. Hot hatch? VW Golf GTI. Mid-size SUV? That would be the Honda CR-V. This is the model that started the whole soft-roader trend, and the beginning of the SUV movement.

Deal breakers: 2020 Toyota RAV4, worth RM 40k more than the Honda CR-V?

Recently, our colleague Zamil had the opportunity to spend some time in the new Toyota RAV4. Toyota’s new kid on the block is here to challenge the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5’s status quo. Powered by Toyota’s new 2.0 and 2.5-litre Dynamic Force engines, and utilising the new TNGA-K platform that also underpins the Corolla Altis and Camry, the RAV4’s recipe is a compelling one.All that being said, it really is a big ask for Toyota to demand RM 215,700 (after SST reductions)

25 years of the Honda CR-V - All you need for a family car

Currently in its fifth generation, the Honda CR-V is a spacious family car that is popular among Malaysians. Offered in both 2WD and 4WD, the former is preferred by many, since it mainly sees urban use.The urban SUV body style is so popular to the extent that even brands like Porsche and Lamborghini have at least one in their line-up.Being one of the early adopters and perhaps even pioneering the urban SUV body-style, the Honda CR-V deserves some recognition.

Review: Can the Honda CR-V still justify itself against the Proton X70?

Lets be honest here, the Honda CR-V has seen better days. Before the introduction of the Proton X70, it was the default choice for families looking for an SUV.There were many decent alternatives to the Honda CR-V - the Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, or even the similarly priced but 7-seater Mitsubishi Outlander - but none could challenge the Honda CR-Vs dominance.All that changed when the Proton X70 undercut everyone else in price.

The Nissan Z Proto is a perfect mixture of past Z cars (or as Chief Designer at Nissan, Alfonso Albaisa called it, memories) and the future of Nissan. Some people might say it is merely an evolution of the 370Z but clearly, there is more to that.In fact, it is probably a better reworking of what Nissan had done a little over 20 years ago with a Z concept also known as the 240Z Concept.Things weren’t doing so well financially for Nissan in the late nineties.
