The mid-size sedan market here is a competitive one and in order to stand out, one needs to not only be priced well, but offer a decent amount of kit as well. It doesn’t hurt if you have bomb proof reliability to add to your list of positive kicks.
While most people would baulk at the thought of seeing their car used as a taxi, it’s actually proof of the car’s reliability. Imagine this, a taxi would easily cover 500 kilometres in a day and any sort of down time would cause problems for the drivers’ income. Naturally the taxi companies would place reliability at the top of their list of prerequisites when choosing a new fleet.
Besides reliability, the latest Sonata is a huge upscale bump compared to its taxi cousins. Besides a much impr...
The LTA has completed the Seletar Aerospace Flyover and its surrounding road connections, and will officially open the roads at 5am on Saturday, 16 May 2015. The flyover will provide motorists a direct connection to CTE, SLE and TPE.
The flyover should also reduce travelling time for people living in the area. Gone are the days when they would need to use the one-lane Jalan Kayu to reach the expressway. Not only is the journey shorter, traffic conditions should be improved as well.
Groundbreaking works started in Q2 of 2011. The dual 3 lane flyover will have the capacity to support future developments in SAP and the Sengkang West Industrial area.

The Kia Sorento is the sort of car that would get not just its competitors, but premium manufacturers, worried. With each advancing generation, the Sorento gains a wealth of valuable features and upgrades that come from the constant learning Kia does on the most lauded cars in the business.
It has reached a stage where it can honestly (and I do not kid) stand tall and proud amongst the entry-level premium manufacturers in terms of build quality, design flair and material quality. Will its driving experience complete the veritable onslaught? Oneshift finds out.
Mr David Peh, owner of Fivespeed Motor Trading, was approached by the Tan family duo of Tan Tiong Chuang, 46, and his nephew, Andrew, 28, for a loan to renew the COE of their decade old Mercedes-Benz SL350. As Tan Tiong Chuang was jobless at the time of the incident, they had plans to transfer the title to Andrew Tan. However, as they were unable to acquire the appropriate insurance coverage for the 28 year old to renew the COE of the car, they made the decision to temporarily transfer the title to the dealer to let him renew the car’s COE instead.
The Tans trusted Mr Peh to transfer the title back to their name post-COE Malarky. However, that is not to be, for after repeated requests for over 3 months, Peh did not transfer the title back. It got so bad, that Peh went to the Tan’s condominium in Bukit Batok and had the car towed.
Peh claims the Tans sold the SL to him in October for $30,000, before agreeing to buy back the car in November for $129,000. When all is said and done, the Tans had to pay $20,000 for the car. They only paid about 25% of that, and thus, Peh repossessed the car. The case has morphed into a legal battle, with Peh suing the Tans for $81,400.
New heights of luxury and new lows in CO2 output have just been achieved in the Audi A8 range, which in addition to further improved TDI engines and a whole lot of equipment upgrades also gains a striking new Sport specification with a look that references the flagship S8.
Offered in standard or Long Wheelbase formats, the latest range features a rationalized choice of engines. Long Wheelbase versions will continue to be available with the highly efficient petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain and with the quintessential Audi luxury saloon power source – the 6.3-litre, twelve-cylinder, 500PS W12. Another formidable petrol engine – the 4.0-litre TFSI with Cylinder-on-Demand technology – will also remain at the heart of the 520PS S8, which is available exclusively with the standard wheelbase.
Maserati announced the launch of a new entry-level engine for its flagship luxury sedan, the Maserati Quattroporte. The launch event took place at the brand new Maserati showroom and was attended by Maserati clients, media and other VIPs. Guests were able to explore the new home of Maserati in Singapore, experience the brand and build a closer relationship with Hong Seh Motors, the official importer for Maserati in Singapore.
The new Quattroporte comes equipped with a 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 330 hp engine as an addition to the existing portfolio of the 530 hp V8 Maserati Quattroporte GTS, the 410 hp V6 Quattroporte S and the 275 hp V6 Quattroporte Diesel.
The XC90 T8 Twin Engine has exceeded all expectations when it comes to power and low fuel consumption, coupled with world class low emissions – and all in a 7-seat luxury SUV.
The improvement over the earlier announced figures were achieved thanks to the continuous innovation cycle at the Swedish company. The result of further tuning is a drop of 10 g/km from the initial prognosis, for up to 134.5mpg fuel economy, while also adding horsepower. This makes the XC90 T8 Twin Engine the clear leader in its segment, with an exceptional combination of low fuel consumption, emissions and pure power.
