Introduction

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...

Introduction

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.

If you didn’t already know, the three pointed star has gone on to rename its entire range of cars by the staple sedan offerings – that is it’s going to be C, E and S something.

Replacing the GLK, the new GLC fills the gap between the monstrously huge GLE recently unveiled as well as the smaller GLA that’s based off the A Class hatch.

The second generation of Mercedes’ mid-sized off-roader will go up against the likes of the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 which are popular offerings on our roads.

Creating a distinctive image to set itself apart from competitors, Mercedes has gone with sensual purity and modern aesthetics to soften the appeal and lean over to the “soft-roader” crowd rather than the traditional tough-as-nails theme for the exterior ...

The ICA expects up to 430,000 travellers to utilise the Tuas and Woodlands checkpoints over the upcoming Lunar New Year holidays. As such, they warn that there may be delays, and travellers should plan their trips carefully.

Even though the first day of Chinese New Year falls on 8th Feb, traffic volume is expected to start building up from the 4th of February, and last till the 14th of February. The problem will be compounded as a result of stringent security checks at the checkpoint. Do check on the traffic situation before heading out.
