If you are confused by the name Levorg, which sounds a bit AVP frankly, then you’re not alone.

What it really is, is an amalgamation of Legacy, Revolution and Touring, none of which was my first guess.

Once you get past the anime name that isn’t quite so surprising considering from whence this car hails, you have a car that’s actually quite easy to appreciate. You get Legacy-sized proportions which make for a healthy size; you also get classic Subaru sporty looks which will certainly set boy racers’ hearts on fire. There’s also the practicality from a wagon body – the sum of which added to the 1.6l turbocharged petrol engine is quite the recipe for success.

Subaru is no stranger to any of the above things and this then appears to be t...

Aston Martin and Italian design-house Zagato have been partners for quite a long time now. The partnership, which has spawned many impressive looking cars, has certainly been a successful one.

The 2 firms now have a new car to add to the lineup – the Vanquish Zagato Concept. The Vanquish Zagato Concept is the fifth car to emerge from a collaboration that stretches back over five decades, pairing Aston Martin's acclaimed sporting, dynamic and material qualities with Zagato's signature design language.

It made its global debut at the prestigious Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, held at Lake Como in Italy from 21 – 22 May 2016. No word on whether the project will ever see production, but judging by previous Aston Martin Zagato concepts, there is a high chance consumers will be able to purchase this car from their local Aston Martin dealer.

This is Audi’s most important car.

The executive sedan offering in most manufacturers’ line ups tend to be their best selling one and Audi is no exception. For most people, when the word ‘car’ comes to mind they think of a sedan, and if you look around the roads sedans are still king. 

And if you don’t have a lot of money or status, you don’t typically think about buying anything bigger than a “regular” sized car. Which brings us back to the A4 – while it may not be the most accessible Audi from a price perspective, it certainly is the one that comes to mind first for most.

So when Audi goes and churns out a brand new version, you can see why it’s an important piece of kit to test out. Even more so when your boss could decide that it’...

Whilst Audi is certainly no stranger in letting their customers sample their cars at various driving events, this is the first time the automaker from Ingolstadt has organised the Audi Sport Driving Experience. The event, which will be held from the 13th to 22nd of May, will be headlined by the all-new Audi R8.

As the event focuses on the overall driving experience, this is definitely a fitting way to introduce the R8 to Singapore, for the car has been fitted with the world’s first “Emotion Dashboard” that measures a driver’s excitement level when they are behind the wheel.  The sophisticated technology measures your heart rate and skin moisture levels, showing how the body reacts to the most thrilling drive.

However, the R8 isn’t the only thing the German Automaker is pulling the wraps off of - the event also marks the launch of Audi Sport, which represents Audi Singapore’s iconic performance-focused S, RS and R models under one banner. To tailor to customer needs effectively, Audi Sport is supported by other initiatives such as a specialised team to ensure optimum performance and maintenance, as well as an Audi Sport reception at the Audi Service Centre.

You’d expect that Volkswagen would be #1 when it comes to customer dissatisfaction – afterall, this was the firm that was caught with an emissions defeat device that has affected a significant chunk of VW owners all around the world. However, that certainly isn’t the case, for the company with the most customer complaints about defective products, is BMW.

In a 12 month period, from the 30th of April in 2015 to the same time in 2016, BMW has received the most complaints, 9 of them, by the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE). VW comes in second, with 5 complaints, and then came Mercedes and Toyota. Mazda rounds up the top 5. For these brands, the complaints made weren’t directed at the car maker, but with their authorised agents.

As per the past couple of years, Infiniti will be scouting for engineering talent in Singapore. The Japanese automaker is keen to pick up the world's best up-and-coming engineering undergraduates, and give them the opportunity to work in the world of cars and F1.

However, unlike the years gone by, the new engineers will not be signed to Red Bull Racing, rather, to the newly formed Renault Sport F1 team. The programme gives young engineers the work experience opportunity of a lifetime - an integrated placement across automotive and Formula One engineering.

So who is eligible? Well, the Academy is looking for excellent students offering a mix of academic and professional experience across such disciplines as Electronics, Aerodynamics, Mechanical Design and Composite Design.

If you are interested, do check their website out! Visit http://academy.infiniti.com.
