To be unveiled to the world at the 85th Salon International de l’Automobile in Geneva, the Kia SPORTSPACE is perhaps the ultimate ‘getaway’ car – a thoroughly practical vehicle for everyday business use, yet a stylish and athletic grand tourer in the classic sense – ready to eat up the miles across continents, whether for business or leisure.

Conceived and developed at Kia’s European Design Centre in Frankfurt under the leadership of Gregory Guillaume, Chief Designer Europe, the Kia Sportspace is a car that rebuffs traditional compromises. It is neither saloon car nor wagon. It is neither hatchback nor shooting brake. It is instead a vehicle that can meet the demands of those who refuse to be categorised when it comes to their lifestyle or their motoring needs.

Suzuki announced some great news for buyers of the all new Vitara ALLGRIP DDiS model which is the cleanest non-hybrid 4x4 on the market. CO2 emissions are just 111g/km for the 1.6-litre DDiS SZ5 ALLGRIP model with an EC combined fuel consumption figure of 67.2mpg. It will go on sale worldwide from April.

It’s not just in the 4x4 SUV segment that Suzuki excels either, as the recently launched Swift 4x4 Dualjet model also emits 111g/km and, in the Crossover segment, the S-Cross 1.6DDiS SZ-T is only slightly higher at 114g/km.

LTA has finished the construction of the Silver Zone at Jurong West Street 52! The scheme will see the addition of senior-friendly road safety features to the estate, thus making it safer for the aged to use the roads. These features include the installation of senior-friendly road safety features customised to site conditions, signs and road markings to remind motorists to slow down and look out for pedestrians. Signage urging senior pedestrians to exercise greater care when crossing the road has been put up as well.

The first Silver Zone scheme was initially announced in March of 2014, and a pilot programme was launched in Bukit Merah View last October. Since then, the changes have been welcomed by residents, especially seniors.

Introduction

Mazda is in a bit on a roll these days. Their stunning Mazda 6 has won many over with its looks; the CX-5 – surprising for a Japanese carmaker – comes with a diesel engine option in Singapore, and the Mazda 3 offers serious value for money with its feature packed standard equipment. 

The Mazda 2 seems to follow the same strategy as the Mazda 3, with an unbelievable amount of kit in such a small car, and what is supposedly the brand’s entry-level model in the country. We looked at this intriguing proposition with greater care in our day test drive, and came away very reluctant to give the keys back to this wonderful machine. Find out more in the following pages why.

A high court judge has dismissed a customer’s claim that his BMW 550i was of an unsatisfactory condition. The customer in question is a regional sale manager by the name of Mr Chan Chee Kien. He bought a BMW 550i in 2010 from Performance Motors for S$378,100, and the car had to be returned to the dealer 12 times in 14 months, with the earliest faults occurring just 2 months after delivery.

As it turns out, Chan’s Ultimate Driving Machine is anything but; the car spent roughly 11 months in the workshop, so much so that he no longer wanted the car. He then sued Performance Motors for misrepresentation and breach of contract.

Apparently, the car was riddled with up to 30 separate defects, even though 18 of them were not detectable or reproducible, and may just be simple issues which could be solved through maintenance. This led Justice Chan Seng Onn to believe that Chan’s claims were overly exaggerated, especially after he found it extremely difficult to pick out major faults in the car when it was taken for a test drive.

Hardly ever spoken in the same sentence, SUVs and performance don’t always go hand in hand. But BMW changed that recently with the new BMW X4 and now they’re hoping the new X6 will inspire the same conclusion.

Similar in design to the smaller X4, the X6 is far more imposing with its pronounced snout and flared kidney grilles. While the X5 was brilliant on road, BMW says the X6 is even better. Considering how the X4 was just as impressive, you better believe it.

Like the X5 we tested awhile back, the new X6 shares much of the mechanical bits. Up front, a rumbling 4.4-litre V8 hides under the large bulbous bonnet. An improved TwinPower Turbo unit means the new car gets a 10% boost in horsepower bringing the total figure to 450bhp. Comb...
