A big NO-NO. But this 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid HEV Plus 1.6 is what I ended up with, and have no regrets to date. Before I begin, here is a little backstory, the first car that I drove was a 2008 Myvi 1.3 SXi. A family car that

What makes a car a 3-door or a 5-door?

You’ve often heard the term 3-door and 5-door used when describing a car. For example, MINI literally names their famous hatch MINI 3-Door and MINI 5-Door. But why does MINI name their cars a 3-Door or a 5-Door when there are only either 2 doors and 4 doors for ingress and egress on the cars?Put simply, any door like structure which includes window on a car large enough for an adult to climb in and out of is considered a “door”. So, the t

2021 Hyundai Elantra vs Mazda 3 Sedan 1.5 - A Hyundai over a Mazda?

The new Hyundai Elantra offers an alternative option if you’re shopping for a C-segment saloon. Being a CBU import from Korea, it is a bit tougher for the Elantra to compete with the CKD Honda Civic. A CBU rival of the Hyundai Elantra would be the Japan-made Mazda 3 Sedan 1.5.The Hyundai Elantra is now open for booking, but prices are yet to be announced. We expect the price to be around the price of the Mazda 3 sedan 1.5, which is around RM 137,660.Picture is of Mazda 3 Sedan 2.0 High Pl

Although Proton has yet to confirm when the Proton X50 will be launched, we are pretty certain it will be within the month of October. Some sources have even provided us with a very specific date – October 15.The October timeline is easy to understand because Proton desperately needs the X50 to close the gap in its annual sales target (MCO not helping).
