Spyshot: Suzuki uji Raider 150 Fi di Malaysia?

Sudah lebih lima bulan berlalu sejak Suzuki Malaysia memaparkan imej 'teaser' lampu hadapan sebuah model mirip motosikal moped Raider 150 Fi di laman Facebook rasmi syarikat berkenaan. Tetapi malangnya, tiada perkembangan baharu atau susulan mengenai imej berkenaan yang disertakan dengan keterangan gambar "The King is Back" (Raja Sudah Kembali) itu. Kepada sesiapa yang tidak tahu, Raider 150 Fi adalah generasi terbaharu bagi Suzuki Belang 150 yang pernah dijual di pasaran tempatan satu ketika du

The missing link – The forgotten second-gen Honda City

The Honda City is often remembered as either the tall-boy Bulldog from the 1980s or the ones many Malaysians fondly remembered that grew from a humble car to a torque-kicking revolution. But following the infamous first-gen turbocharged City that also produced this ear-catching jingle, its follow-up was seen as a step back from the first-gen. The first-gen City (known as the AA by fans) was a funky little car. It had a unique tallboy design that eventually caught on with other manufacturers and

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

Spyshot: Kia Sportage 2022 generasi seterusnya, nampak futuristik macam kereta sci-fi!

Sejak kebelakangan ini, pengeluar kereta daripada Korea banyak menghasilkan kereta yang nampak futuristik macam filem sci-fi (dah tengok Hyundai Staria?), dan trend ini bersambung dengan Kia Sportage 2022 generasi seterusnya (kod nama NQ5). Walaupun Sportage baru ini penuh dengan penyamaran, model yang akan datang ini tidak lagi nampak begitu bulat, sebaliknya tampil dengan garisan yang lebih moden dan tajam. Di bahagian depan, terdapat lampu depan runcing yang bersambung di gril depan (seperti

Spied: Sci-fi looks and cleaner style for next-gen, 2022 Kia Sportage

Korean carmakers are penning cars that wouldn't look too out of place in any sci-fi movies (have you seen the Hyundai Staria?) and it's a trend that this next-gen 2022 Kia Sportage (codenamed NQ5) aims to follow. The camouflage obfuscates the details, but at least we can see the bigger picture - the upcoming Sportage trades off the current-gen's bulbous looks for a silhoutte complemented by sharper features. It looks like there's pointy headlights that sharply converge at the front grille (a bit

Video: Tesla Model 3 review, time to say goodbye to combustion engines

Electric vehicles are hardly a viable option in Malaysia as we do not have the necessary infrastructure and policies in place to support prolonged use of high voltage cars. I'm not talking just about setting up more charging stations – in fact, this is the easiest concern to address. Issues such as disposal of high voltage batteries, the readiness of emergency services personnel to handle accidents involving EVs and the reliability of EVs in hot tropical climates.

Quick Review: 2020 Honda City 1.5L V - good choice for a zippy family car

When we brought you the closer look of the 2020 Honda CR-V facelift last week, we also saw the all-new 2020 Honda City parking pretty outside. We know you're clamouring to know more - so we politely asked for the keys and took it for a spin. Please note that this is a brief review, and a detailed review will follow post-CMCO.

Review: 2020 Non-turbo Honda City – What the Indian media says

The 2020 Honda City has yet to go on sale in India, but some Indian medias have started publishing their reviews. To recap, the India market Honda City is slightly different from the Thailand market model. The 1.0-litre turbocharged engine featured on the City RS isn’t offered in India; instead, buyers in India have the choice of two engines: a new 1.5-litre DOHC petrol engine and a carried-over 1.5-litre diesel engine. The petrol engine can be had with a CVT-type automatic or a 6-speed manual,

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.

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.
