Let me first begin by saying that this is not a newly launched car.

So why are we testing it? Simply because balance needs to be restored in the world (and because we’ve curiously not tested it).

What am I on about? Well recently the local scene has been awash with the latest and greatest in continental offerings, while Asian car makers have been slightly slower at shoving new cars in consumers’ faces. So we’ve decided that we have to balance things out a bit with something that more people here would better associate with.

Nissan has long been a staple on our roads and what better way to bring us back to Asia than with its popular family sedan offering the Teana.

Redesigned and styled to fit the contemporary Nissan design language, ...

Ferrari announces the GTC4Lusso, a new four-seater which comes with some serious firsts for the brand. While the FF has already seen success since its inception, the GTC4Lusso with its rear-wheel steering with four-wheel drive sets a new benchmark for Ferrari in this segment.

Designed to be a Ferrari for anywhere, anytime driving, this is the car Ferrari claims will be for those who demand performance without sacrificing comfort or luxury.

The GTC4Lusso’s name comes from its ancestry including the 330 GTC and the 330 GT (the 2+2 sister model and an Enzo Ferrari favourite) and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso. The number 4 of course, refers to the seating capacity.

The facelifted Peugeot 508 was a rather respectable thing we felt when we tested it last year. Decently equipped and much improved over its original version, there was little to complain about except maybe the price tag.

With the measures that the newly sworn in government imposed not so long ago, cars above 1600 cc and featuring more than 130 bhp had to go into the “big car” segment. So you can’t have a really small car with a small engine but a big turbo without paying them more.

However, things get even more curious when big cars like the 508 start to go the other direction and try to compete with tiny little hatchbacks for a piece of the Cat A pie. With the aforementioned shove of quite a few cars to Cat B, cars that were already i...

Not so long ago we sampled the smallest offering from Volvo, the V40 sports hatch and found that it was a pretty solid bang for buck car that looks great and isn’t bad to drive.

Continuing the trend of extended practicality offerings from Volvo comes another of its highly useable V series cars – the V60. In this case particularly, we have the Cross Country (CC) variant.

What’s a Cross Country you might ask, as I did when I first saw the term a little while ago. Simply put, Volvo has decided it would be a good idea to raise the ride height of some of its cars and as the name might suggest, it is good for clearing rougher terrains that would otherwise impede a normal road car with a relatively low ride height.

In the case of the V60, wh...
