It’s also a bit of a contradiction
This is nothing less than the most powerful, fastest Mini ever made. Welcome to the new John Cooper Works GP, which answers the question, "What would putting more than 302hp and 450Nm in a Mini Cooper be like?"This is also the
Benz played it safe with the design
The VW Group isn't the only one spinning a million and one cars off a single platform. In the last couple of years, Mercedes-Benz has derived no fewer than seven different cars from the latest A-Class's underpinnings, all
It's a mixed bag
Don't be fooled by the outside: This looks like the ordinary MG ZS, but it's actually full-electric. And for a fully-electric crossover, it also goes with an amazingly low price.There are disadvantages in this approach. The ZS
Our kind of electric car
It's a Peugeot that looks like some sort of alien hamster. And we mean that entirely as a compliment. If you're one of those people who sees faces within the features of inanimate objects, then the e-2008 might look
Not remarkable, but good in quite a few ways
The Q5 has done the numbers for Audi ever since it came out in 2008, selling in vast quantities pretty much everywhere it's available. In fact, the old one was, says the company, the "world's best-selling premium midsize" SUV
But there's still room for improvement
Taken objectively, the last Porsche 911 Turbo was all the sports car you'd ever need. Its jet speed and surefooted handling combined with all the boring-but-true facts about being reliable and easy to live to make it nigh on
Funk on the outside, quiet on the inside
Almost everyone who bought the last Kia Soul got the one with an actual engine. Until, that is, the last year it was on sale. In 2018, Kia sold more Soul EVs in Europe than it did gasoline and diesel ones combined.
It’s still the segment benchmark
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is, without a doubt, the benchmark big luxury sedan, the one Audi, BMW, Lexus, Cadillac, and even Jaguar and Maserati must define themselves by and be measured against. This car defines the sector and is the one
It depends on where you want to sit
Let's get one thing straight: Neither of these is the best car in the world. It's been a long time since the luxury sedan was the highest point on the automotive landscape, the pinnacle to which we all aspired. Now,
We review the 110 long-wheelbase version
The new Defender has a mountain to climb. Yeah, a real mountain, of course, because awesome off-road ability is an absolute necessity. But also a metaphorical mountain: It's got to replace the old one. A vehicle that was very widely
A Toyota through and through
Despite its global leadership in hybrid technology, Toyota has had a hard time selling its hybrids here. Even with a 50% excise tax break under the TRAIN law, the P2.4 million Prius is a hard sell. The Thai-built Corolla Hybrid,
The lone turbodiesel-powered subcompact crossover in a petrol-dominated segment
Save for a few small but effective design changes, the 2020 SsangYong Tivoli is as visually impressive today as when it first landed on our shores. And with a new engine and some fresh digs, it has suddenly become perfectly poised to
One of the truly reliable AUVs from decades past
Before the advent of stylish and tech-loaded crossovers and midsize SUVs, Philippine roads were once dominated by the mighty Asian utility vehicle, or AUV for short. Our very own Niky Tamayo wrote a beautiful adieu to these models a few years
A simple but efficient workhorse
They say it's lonely at the top. If that's true, then the Toyota Vios must be pretty used to talking to itself by now. Toyota's bestseller has been at the top of the subcompact-sedan heap (and sedans in
What does the new pickup have to offer?
Remember the pickup wars from about half a decade ago? Those sure were fun times. Back then, the market was suddenly flooded with all-new iterations of well-known models, each with its own loyal customer base. Now, we may be in
Is the TRD kit worth the upgrade?
In all my years of being a car journalist, I have never actually tested or owned a Toyota Fortuner. Recently, I felt that after close to nine years of writing, it was about time I change that fact.The Fortuner is an
“Not like the previous Corvette, but also not like any other car you can buy today”
Chevrolet has been talking about building a mid-engined Corvette for years-decades, even-but we've had to wait until 2020 for the idea, the dream, the concept, to become a production reality. You might think this landmark mid-engined model'
It borrows elements from some of the best in the industry
This is the first proper Hyundai performance car. There have been efforts before-mildly hot hatches and big-bumpered F2 editions of the pretty '90s Hyundai Coupe-but nothing with circa 300hp and a development program overseen by a former BMW M
A genuinely enjoyable package
Driving a luxury car and being objective at the same time can be tricky. The price tag can play mind games on you, leading you to think the car you're driving is better than other offerings simply because it's more
This is fast becoming our favorite McLaren
Someone cleverer than I am will be able to explain why placing the steering wheel and the driver's seat in the center of a car's cabin makes it feel so special. Why it tugs at the emotional connection between man
