When it comes to minivans, 7-seaters and hybrids, one might think that there are three different types of people that buy these different cars. Well Toyota has decided that even if there were three different types of buyers for those cars, only one car is required to fit in all three segments and appeal to them all.
Enter the Voxy, a do it all MPV, minivan, 7-seater and yes; hybrid car. If a product is so many things, it must be pretty darn jam packed with goodies. And it is, once you climb aboard and begin to discover what Toyota is giving you for less than $150,000 in today’s uber expensive Singapore car market.

The Voxy is a large car; that’s immediately apparent. It looks similar to a small school bus, but that’s not necess...

You know what people who are super of stitious say: don’t do anything risky during the Chinese Ghost Festival, because the chance for it to go badly is higher. All sorts of calamities can befall you if you refuse to heed this advice. So no swimming, no taking long trips, no buying big-ticket items like cars, no moving homes, and the list goes on.

The thing is, is there any scientific basis to these 7th month “truthisms”? Of course not, that’s why there are called superstitions.  Right?

Luckily statistics can be collected and objectively assessed to ascertain reality. The truth is out there - with that in mind, here’s a few 7th month driving superstitions I put under the scrutiny of stone cold objecitvity. Like the following:

Introduction

We all know people like this. They are well-qualified, have good jobs, dress impeccably, have all the right accessories and know all the cool places to be. But do you want to hang out with them? Well, err, it's like, I mean . . . . maybe.

The Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI reminds me of them. As a piece of art on two wheels, it is brilliant, especially with the new lower, squatter body shape and cool LED strip running lights. Sophisticated touches like the cornering lights, rear camera, turbo-blown engine, sports or comfort switchable profiles, rain sensor wipers, auto headlights, dipping mirror and Golf GTI-leather steering wheel all impress the pants off anybody with spec-sheet-itus. You can fiddle all day long without driving anywhere a...

More MRT stations will be upgraded as part of the overall rejuvenation of the rail network. Improvements that are currently being considered include making use of existing void space, adjusting and alterating station furniture to create more platform space, the construction of new lifts and weatherproof facilities for enhanced accessibility. These include new sheltered link bridges that connect directly to HDB Blocks and key facilities, not dissimilar to the ones already installed at Clementi and Queenstown MRT stations.

The LTA is also considering adding several stations to the planned Jurong Region Line. It will most probably cut through West Coast through a West Coast Extension, and connect to the Circle Line to improve rail connectivity between the western parts of Singapore and the city centre.

The name is quite pretty, is it not? It’s called the Jade, and as you might know, the Chinese love the rock. Its lustrous greenish grey surface and smooth, cool finish has inspired many works of art that are painstakingly hand crafted out of the hard rock. It’s no wonder then, that the Jade is one of the best selling cars in China, where its name inspires awe and desire even before customers see the car.

Based off the Stream platform, it’s designed to be 4+2 seater, something unique I think most would find. After all, 2+2s are common, but 4+2? You can now take more kids than the average hatchback would, but not have to buy a full on MPV that’s slightly cumbersome to drive. So let’s find out just what this cool piece of kit is all about....
