Radiant Red 2020 Nissan Almera Turbo challenges Honda City RS in latest teaser ad

Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has just teased the imminent arrival of the all-new 2020 Nissan Almera in its latest ad. The overarching theme in the 1-minute video is “challenge all beliefs”. What is the belief that Nissan wants consumers to challenge? Set to go head-to-head against upcoming Honda City RS when it goes on sale later this year, the hero colour for the all-new Nissan Almera is red – in this case, Radiant Red. Coincidence much? To recap, ETCM held a preview event for the all-new Niss

10 cars sold in Malaysia that simply refuse to die

Generally, most cars don’t last a lifetime and most people would generally own a car for a few years before replacing it. Still, there are some cars which are still running years or even decades after they were bought new. In fact, for this week’s Top Rank, we wanted to focus on the cars that are generally seen as immortal. Some of them might be considered indestructible and can last a lifetime no matter what is thrown in their way. You could even think of them as the automotive equivalent of a

The Honda City is not the only one who is throwing shade at multiple “competitors”! Geely, too, joined the bandwagon with an ad for its upcoming Geely Preface that calls out its luxury competitors.

We suspect that this Perodua Bezza is triggered by a certain Honda ad that called out all its competitors, so the driver decided to prove it wrong! All jokes aside, this is why you should refrain from overtaking slower cars when driving on a narrow winding road. In this viral dashcam footage, the Bezza is seen attempting to overtake 3 cars in one go on a narrow mountainous road. After driving pass the car with the dashcam, instead of sliding back into the lane it continued driving in the wrong d

The history of Volkswagen’s iconic ads began in the 1950s and 1960s when the German car company hired Doyle Dane Bernbach (DDB) to be their ad agency. What resulted was a series of witty and simple print ads depicting the Beetle
