A gateway car into the world of EVs
You're not looking hard enough. Like a Porsche 911, the XC40 Recharge T5 has a filler flap in the front wing. Though this is on the left, and it's an electric socket. The fuel filler is on the right rear
Dare we say it?
Nope. We're not going there. This is going to be a-This is a rational, objective assessment of a car that has, in its previous two generations, sold upwards of 443,000 examples worldwide. Had it only sold about four, we
The Rimac C_Two EV is mind-boggling
We are here, in a small village just outside Zagreb in Croatia, to drive one of the prototypes of the Rimac C_Two EV hypercar with 1,887hp and 2,297Nm of torque, a 0-100kph time under 2sec, a 415kph top speed,
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
The shift to electric is a success
Which is entirely the point. The toughest thing to get used to is the weird futuristic 'bing-bong' noise when you start it up. Once you've finished grimacing at that you can get on with appreciating how like a Mini the
And it looks damn good
It's the Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan. What it isn't is a CLA. You can get that with the same engine and chassis, but you'll pay more for the privilege. Such is the price of fashion.As per the A35
It’s about time
In fairness, Porsche has never been afraid of a big, public U-turn, a model some governments would do well to take inspiration from. Its latest-and perhaps greatest-backpedal yet comes in the form of this new 718 GTS Cayman and
We test it on various road surfaces and in different driving situations
Kia has had a good history in the Philippines. Who could forget when the Kia Pride was fighting big-body Corollas for taxi dominance? It was the '90s version of the Grab and Uber wars. Then, like Uber, Kia faded for a
“Classier than ever, while still possessing a wicked sense of fun”
Indeed it is, as those controversial new headlights denote. You've likely made your mind up on them already, but I'd ask you to reserve final judgement for now.One, because they look significantly better in person than in pictures. And
Not quite a restomod
Let's not. This is not the new Defender, but it's an old Defender with much newness. In fact, every single component-every last nut and washer-is either new or better than new. Or different from new-upgraded and modernized
Effortless to ride and to drive
Very much so. And don't forget that, with the i3 and the i8, the German carmaker was one of the first to embrace electricity. The 5-Series is another one following a route down this path, although in this case, it'
There is a lot riding on this model
Ah, you spotted the litter of sponsor decals, though they're really more of a distraction than a disguise: Aston Martin's reminder that this is not yet the finished article. I'm in Oman driving the DBX. The two are a
It’s good enough for most people
Click...click...click......click...click-sorry, got a little carried away playing with the suspension settings on this Volvo S60. Or rather, the Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered T8 Twin Engine, which nobody in their right minds would ever say twice.Sure, it
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
It’s a pretty good-looking bike, isn’t it?
Honda Philippines' latest launch has been making all sorts of headlines lately, mostly because of its, um, interesting name. The Supra GTR150, which lets you sort of own two Japanese sports-car legends as well as a motorcycle all at once, is
The car is about 90% finished at this point
Yep, a Yaris. Not so much the last car to drive before you die as the last car you'll drive, before you die. But, this is a Yaris by Gazoo Racing, the motorsport skunkworks embedded in the Toyota mothership. In recent
“Now less of an eyeful to more people, and more spacious for those aboard”
Not fugly, is it? The squinty LED running lights and the upside-your-head headlights will still clash with some village green sensibilities, but in the metal-and there's a fair bit more metal this time around-the new Juke looks
This model deserves the accolades it has garnered
Very possibly. The Porsche Taycan 4S actually comes in two flavors. The top one is almost a Taycan Turbo. The main difference is a smaller rear motor, but it still has the two-speed gearbox. We're talking a hardly-lame 571hp
Does bigger mean better in this case?
Well, sort of. Last year, SsangYong Philipines decided to jump into the pickup segment (new territory for Korean carmakers in the Philippines) with the Musso. One of our reviewers summed up that model by saying: "Dyed-in-the-wool pickup buyers will
