New 2020 Honda CR-V will cover all bases but can it win you over the Proton X70?

Honda Malaysia has announced that it will be launching a new 2020 Honda CR-V before the year ends, and it will have an expanded list of features.

LaneWatch is too expensive for Honda, to be removed in future models

Initially conceived as a better alternative to blind spot monitoring, Honda’s ingenious LaneWatch system could be discontinued in the near future. What is Honda LaneWatch? Honda LaneWatch, like the name suggests, utilizes a camera mounted on the passenger-side wing mirror that feeds a video stream to your car’s head unit. The aim is to allow drivers to see if there are motorcyclists or other drives in their blind spot, and it also works in poor weather conditions. If it’s so good, why does Honda

Honda Monkey edisi istimewa di Thailand. Menarik, unik!

Motosikal 'mini' mungkin tidak begitu mendapat sambutan di Malaysia namun peminatnya tetap ada dan antara yang paling menyerlah dan unik pastinya Honda Monkey.

Enthusiasts are wrong, reviving the Mazda 3 MPS could cripple Mazda’s future

For months Mazda enthusiasts have been holding their breath in eager anticipation for the Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo. Mazda’s sexiest hatch with its biggest engine sounds enticing by itself. But enthusiasts were more hopeful that it would feature the Mazdaspeed or MPS designation. Alas, that wasn't to be when the 3 2.5 Turbo made its debut in North America. While the new variant followed the recipe of the last "MPS" model – big turbo engine, small hatch – it didn’t wear the renowned name. Not only that,

Honda e spotted in Thailand! Any future in Malaysia?

Pictures from autonetmagz (sourced from Car Spotting TH) show the adorable Honda e spotted on a truck bed in Thailand. With the MINI Cooper SE already entering the SEA market (and being sold out in Malaysia), could it be that the Honda E is finally making its way to our region? The answer is no. We’d really love to see that happen, but Honda has clearly stated that the Honda E is strictly for Europe and Japan only. Even in the land down under (where 100 units of the MINI Cooper SE were sold out)

Nissan-Honda merger proposal fizzled before discussions even started

According to a report from the Financial Times, the Japanese government have tried to propose a merger between Nissan Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co. The merger was proposed due to the government’s growing concern over the future of Nissan following the growing rift in the weakening Renault Nissan Alliance, as well as disruptions posed by electric and driverless cars. Unfortunately, the idea has since fizzled as both companies had immediately rejected the idea. Concern for Japan’s once mighty car

This new key fob will come with all future Mercedes-Benz models

Alongside the introduction of the all-new W223 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the Stuttgart-based also gave its flagship sedan a new key fob. Despite all the technology buzz surrounding the brand-new S-Class, one may find it weird that Mercedes-Benz chose to use a traditional-looking key, instead of a fancier display key found on the BMW 7 Series. The main reason why Mercedes-Benz chose to use such a key is because the company already offers the Mercedes Me Connect app – its all-in-one app that features

Is the road tax actually cheaper for electric cars in Malaysia?

We’ve seen the launch of the Porsche Taycan and the MINI Cooper SE in Malaysia this year. They were surprisingly priced lower than our expectations. The MINI Cooper SE has a price tag of RM 218,380 and the Taycan 4S starts at RM 725,000. We did expect the MINI to be priced lower than the BMW i3s, but the Taycan is cheaper in Malaysia than it is in Thailand. The “low” price of these cars could be a result of the 10% excise tax on all electric cars as opposed to 60% to 105% for ICE cars. When we t

New Honda Civic Type R to set new lap record at Suzuka

Earlier in February, Honda announced a Civic Type R (CTR) Limited Edition, a more extreme version of the once fastest front-wheel drive around the Nurburgring (until the Renault Megane RS Trophy-R wrestled that title in April 2019), and that was the last we heard of it. Now, Honda has just released a video that raises even more questions than answers. The 15-second clip shows the Limited Edition CTR being unloaded, prepped for track work, and pounding the iconic Suzuka Circuit. It ends with the

Honda Integra set to return this year - except it'll just be another Civic

Yes, you read that right - the Honda Integra name is making a comeback in 2021! Except not in the way you last remembered it to be: it'll be the name of the China-market all-new 2021 Honda Civic. With China's huge car market, it's common for manufacturers to have multiple joint ventures (JVs) there. In Honda's case, they have two partners - Guangqi (GAC) Honda and Dongfeng Honda - each selling the same models with slight differences under different names. This means that GAC-Honda is very likely

Honda CR-V returns as Thailand’s best-selling C-SUV in Jan 2021

The year 2020 ended very well for the MG HS with it taking the title of Thailand’s best-selling C-segment SUV ahead of the Honda CR-V. However, the first month of 2021 showed a shift in tide with the CR-V taking the No. 1 position. But only just, as the gap between the first place CR-V and the second-placed MG HS is only 20 units. Honda moved 458 units of the CR-V in January while 438 units of the MG HS were moved in the same period. This gave the CR-V 30% market share while the HS got 28.7% mar
