It knows how to age gracefully
This is big. It's the BMW M4, and after six years on sale, it feels like a staple of the performance-car world. But rewind back to 2014 and the people were not happy. The BMW M3, one of the benchmarks
It’s the little things that count
Over the past several days, I was gifted the opportunity to drive around a Honda Odyssey in a traffic-free Metro Manila-a setting that only presents itself once a year, during Christmas and New Year's.With the minivan boasting easily
Try not to mind the stiffness
The Audi RS3 used to be a missed opportunity. A classy, good-looking hatchback that'd had a rally car-aping five-cylinder engine shoehorned ahead of the driver, but without much sense of humor sprinkled in. It was almightily quick, but
The oil-burners live on, for now
It may seem early to be unveiling a completely new Discovery Sport just five years after the last, but with Land Rover angling for complete hybridization of its lineup, the change was a necessary evil. And yet here I stand looking at
Is it the best compact hatchback in the market? 
After 20 years of 'Zoom-Zoom,' Mazda has become a byword for driving enjoyment. But with the new Mazda Premium thrust-a movement that started with the impressive new CX-5 back in 2017, and now brought to full flower with the
Some things go beyond the need to impress
I'm basking in the afternoon sun on a private beachfront property in Batangas, sipping copious amounts of beer well before 5pm, sharing laughs with friends from high school, some of whom I haven't seen in years. It's a reunion
Can it compete with the segment’s best?
While the number of small, affordable seven-seater SUVs has increased in recent years, it hasn't stopped carmakers from targeting other, possibly overlapping segments that have performed well in the past, such as subcompact crossovers. With Kia Philippines ramping up its
Is this van as super as advertised?
The 2020 Toyota Hiace was, by a pretty sizeable margin, the year's most-followed automotive arrival.That Toyota saw it fit for the Philippines to be the first market in the world to get a taste of the latest-generation van
“A reliable and easy-to-drive classic”
This is one of the most important sports cars of all time: the Datsun 240Z. Nissan's first Z-car didn't just propel it from its status as an also-ran maker of worthy whitegoods to a renowned big player. It
Going for the most affordable variant doesn’t always mean compromising
No one wants a base-variant car. Sales agents and taxi fleets will buy them out of necessity, sure, but no one will read reviews, do research, and ask around for the most affordable trim in a given model lineup. Gearheads, especially,
“Its character is allowed to shine through its civility”
Think of the GTC4Lusso as Ferrari's SUV. Well, can you think of a more pertinent answer to the sport-utility vehicle conundrum? Four seats, four-wheel drive, and all without the 'benefit' of sitting four feet higher in the air. However,
An alternate reality
After penning the award-winning Mercedes-motivated Musso in the '90s, SsangYong lead designer Ken Greenley seemingly went off the deep end. First came the aardvark-snouted second-gen Korando. Then the whale-like Stavic-née Rodius-widely considered one of
An off-road monster stuck on the road
I have always wanted a Jeep Wrangler. Jeep is just one of those brands that exudes personality in a way that makes other marques go green with envy. Of the cars I've driven, the Wrangler is also the one that has
Two extra doors and bigger storage room yield a better GT than the regular 8
The BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe is the latest car to join the increasingly well-populated sector that lies somewhere between sedans and coupes. Up until the Mercedes CLS first arrived-way back in 2004, just to make you feel wistful about
A compelling subcompact crossover
Oh yes, it's another dinky SUV. But it's hard to be angry at something wearing the face of a robotic chipmunk like this Peugeot 2008 does.It's an aesthetically pleasing thing all round, really, looking like it was designed
What does the eighth-gen VW have to offer?
Can it really be that time again? Like credit-card bills or yearly car registration, a new Golf always seems to come around sooner than you expect. Here we are then: the eighth of the line.The Volkwagen Golf is the lingua
Hyundai’s entry-level crossover brings the drama
With the launch of the new Tucson crossover in 2015, Hyundai had plans to extend its crossover range to cover the new but quickly growing subcompact crossover segment, as a means to attract new buyers to the brand. The i20 Cross, based
“It gives every trip a sense of adventure”
The off-road Ariel Atom. Although there's more to the Nomad than taking an Atom, raising the suspension, and bolting on a set of knobblies. That said, that is exactly where Ariel started. They tested it, they liked it, so they
“Can a low price and a high equipment list guarantee success in a shrinking sedan market?”
Once the last of the independent British automakers, MG Rover built such uniquely British cars as the Rover 45 and its sportier twin, the MG ZS. Well, uniquely British in the sense that they were manufactured in the UK, because these were
