Volvo officially caps top speed at 180 km/h, is it fast enough for you?

The inevitable has happened, all Volvo cars produced from 2020 onwards are now limited to a top speed of 180 km/h. The decision to cap the top speed was announced in 2019, drawing much criticism from the public. But Volvo Cars persisted on their top speed cap and has installed limiters on all new Volvo cars, except for those under the Polestar brand. Volvo’s decision to cap all cars with the 180 km/h limit is in line with their goal to close the remaining gap to zero serious injuries and fatalit

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

Once popular in Malaysia, what happened to the Honda Stream and Toyota Wish?

Twenty years ago, when the MPV was still an in-thing, Honda launched the Stream. Three years later, in 2003, Toyota launched its own challenger into the ring, the Wish. Both these MPVs were a delight among families who wanted an MPV that gave off a sporty presence. They were once commonly seen on Malaysian roads, and perhaps some of you reading this might even grow up with one. Eventually, the idea of a car-like MPV evolved into crossover SUVs as both the Toyota Wish and Honda Stream saw sales d

One major highlight of the newly launched locally-assembled (CKD) 2020 Proton X70 is the adoption of a new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that replaces the conventional 6-speed torque converter automatic. Most Malaysians would be familiar with the term DCT (dual-clutch transmission) no thanks to the Volkswagen DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) and Ford PowerShift that started the discussion of DCT reliability.

We all have our own biases and prejudices and there is often very little logic behind our purchase decisions. It's exactly why the advertising industry is so big. Korean cars are bad.

Well, that's a definition we can live by and the wing is one of those tools that many car fanboys love to show off thinking it makes their car faster.

Future Geely models to be closer to Volvo’s, but Proton might lose out – here’s why

Last week, Geely Auto, not to be confused with parent company Geely Holding which owns the Volvo Car Group, announced that it will no longer merge with Volvo Car. Instead, both Geely Auto and Volvo Car will remain separate (but still operating under the umbrella of Geely Holding), but will instead work together on specific electric vehicles- and driverless car-related projects. In layman’s terms, it means that the Swedes at Volvo Cars and Chinese at Geely Auto will continue to do their own thing

All Volvo models (except S90) in Malaysia, now come with a 180 km/h speed limiter

Hot on the heels of the introduction of the 2021 Volvo XC40 T5 Recharge PHEV on our shores, one can't help but notice that the top speed is now capped at 180 km/h. We did a little more digging and found that this also applied to the regular XC40 T5 R-Design, all variants of the XC60 and S60 sedan. Curiously, the S90 variants still have top speeds exceeding 180 km/h, for now. Also read: Volvo’s 180 km/h limit is so stupid, it’s actually brilliant, but remember Turbo Rolf?
