The VW Polo started life as an Audi? Say what?

Audi did not start off as the luxury car brand that we know of today. Back in the 60s, before the Audi started competing with luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Audi was rolling out affordable cars like the small hatchback Audi 50.Which… Volkswagen later took and rebadged into the Volkswagen Polo. Say what? But it’s true! The first Volkswagen Polo introduced to the world back in 1975 was actually a rebadged Audi 50.Audi 50 3-door hatchback launched in 1974This is because when

Deal Breaker: We love the Honda Jazz but we just can't live with the infotainment system!

The 2017 Honda Jazz is, hands down, the must-have car if you’re looking for a B-segment hatchback. It is practical, spacious, fuel efficient and its steering is nicely weighted for city dwellers to easily squeeze into tight spaces. But there is one thing that stops us from gushing over the hatch and it is the Jazz’s poor infotainment system.When the Honda Jazz was updated in 2017, not only did the touchscreen unit shrunk in size (from 7-inch to 6.8-inch) but the system itself seem to

How the 7-seater Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace makes sense in Malaysian market

If you want an SUV that’s not too large and is able to seat 7, there aren’t many options in Malaysia. There’s the Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-Trail, and Peugeot 5008. That’s pretty much it.Then we have the "big boys", the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Fortuner, and Mazda CX-8, but those can be little cumbersome to navigate about in tight spaces.And that brings us back to C-segment SUVs.
