The seven-seat SUV gets a facelift three years after its local launch
A few years ago, Honda Cars Philippines introduced the BR-V to the local market, and with it came the trend of affordable seven-seater SUV/MPV-type cars that are a little bit bigger than the Mobilios of the world. It
This is an “oddly likable” vehicle
What is it?The Nissan Juke was a pioneer when it launched nine years ago. It packed the attitude and altitude of a crossover, and out-there styling, all shrunk into a supermini's length span. It sold like crazy from the
“It looks and operates as you’d expect of a peak BMW.”
As if buying a German sports saloon wasn't already tricky enough. The BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 have reached some sort of 1,200hp dead heat, the Audi RS7 Sportback is all of a sudden good, and the AMG boys have
Reinvigorating the brand
The midsize SUV segment in our country seems to have reached a state of parity. No one model seems to be head and shoulders above the rest. So whichever you buy, you'll end up with a powerful seven-seater loaded with
The German carmaker will likely sell them in droves
The plug-in hybrid version. It's a four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor. Both send power, separately or independently, through the automatic transmission. There was one of these in the old 3-Series range, but the new one can
An adorkable off-roader gets a fairy-tale makeover
It is one of the most overused clichés in cinema. That scene where our young starlet takes off her glasses, lets her hair down, trades denims for a dress, and glides effortlessly down the stairs-jangly Sixpence song playing in the
But that might change soon
Yup. The brand's been around in the Philippines for a while, but it wasn't until its recent resurgence that it has caught the public's attention. Late last year, MG came under the umbrella of The Covenant Car Company, the
Ready to do battle in the competitive subcompact crossover segment
Kia Philippines could be the comeback story of 2019. A Korean brand with a lineup that could easily match-and even surpass-that of its Hyundai sibling/rival, it never found the audience that could appreciate its modern design language and enjoyable
Even in 2019, it runs on a naturally aspirated V8
Less powerful, that's what. Feels cruel to kick off a review of a Japanese performance coupe by noting that it's down on power, but in order to comply with ever more stringent emissions regulations, Lexus has had to revise the
A quiet surprise
The Maxus G10 is an odd addition to the local automotive scene. A premium MPV from a relatively new brand, if not for Shanghai Automotive's close relations to the Ayala-distributed Volkswagen, it would never have made it here. But here
We drive three prototypes
It's a fair point. Back when the world was young, Peugeot built an epochal supermini. Then spent three decades trying to do something that great again. Here's the latest attempt, and we've had a brief drive of three prototypes,
Nissan PH gives it the push it deserves
Another month, another driving event. The formula is the same: early call time, briefing over breakfast, event shirt that probably won't fit, and driving in a convoy. But there were two things different with this motoring event: 1) I have never
“Which bits are from BMW?”
The window for a comeback is always narrower than you think. The music industry normally provides us with a timely reminder of this, as some washed-up '80s unit decides to relaunch a career that never really happened in the first place,
This little EV has built up quite the hype
That's right-not very far, and not for very long, but we're the first outside of Honda to slide across the recycled polyester seat, look out over the concave triptych of screens and take a drive in perhaps the most
An upscale Miata
When the Mazda MX-5 RF was revealed, I was one of those who was less than enamored with the idea of a Miata with a folding mechanical roof. I thought the MX-5's canvas roof was a beautiful origami of
The right-sized Rover
Rewind: It's 2011, and Top Gear-back then still in its pre-Matt LeBlanc era-is busy getting dust in their eyes in the desert, when one of the presenters bloodies himself after a towing mishap. For a brief moment, the
A hardcore Bimmer
A very late arrival to a party BMW should have been hosting. Way back in 1998, the X5 was one of the very first schport-premium 4x4 SUVs on the scene. Then BMW saw the downsize trend coming way ahead of Mercedes
Is the new look all that it’s cracked up to be?
If I'm being honest, the idea of driving the Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm didn't exactly excite my inner motoring journalist. Not because I dislike the pickup, mind you. I'll get to that in a second. Rather, it's
It’s a ‘very complete machine’
This is the grandchild of the original Cayenne, which famously transformed Porsche's fortunes when it elbowed into showrooms in 2002.It's taken some people many of the years since to get used to the idea of a Porsche SUV, but
Practical excess is possible
Do me a favor. Family car? How is a near-£100k (P6.5 million) Mercedes a family car?If you have a family, and nearly £100k (P6.5million) to spend on a car to transport aforementioned family around town/on holiday/up
