We could sit in one all day

I've always liked Volkswagen's "little" SUV. Stellar highway ride, refined drivetrain, restrained Euro style. But early units breached the P2,000,000 mark, a consequence of unfavorable exchange rates and tariffs. In recent months, Volkswagen Philippines has been making waves
Look at the back
It's the new Porsche Macan! And just like most Porsche reveals, you'd be forgiven for thinking it might still be the old Porsche Macan. At least at the front.Around the back, though, it gives us a decent hint of
Meet the Manhart MH5 700
If you think the latest, near-600hp BMW M5 seems a bit tame, then apparently-though surprisingly-you're not alone. This is the Manhart MH5 700, and as well as a bold carbon body kit, it's been turned well past
Hopefully it can still be saved
