These are impressive numbers indeed. During the span of 12 days, more than 1,600,000 people attended the recently concluded 38th Bangkok International Motorshow. Considering that most international motorshows over the globe hardly get a million visitors, this is a feat not to be taken lightly… As mentioned in the past, BIMS is also a show …

It was an audacious plan to begin with. Having tired of waiting around for the official media ride, a bunch of us decided to draw straws and take matters into our own hands. The winner would be responsible for organising a media ride for a small selected bunch of motorheads, and guess who just happened to be …

Wait, hang on… Active Cruise Control? As usual, I’d not bothered to read the brochure upon collecting the new Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid for review, so yeah, when the car began to slow down all by itself as it approached traffic on the highway, and sped-up when it cleared while I had the cruise control on, I was …

It came as no surprise when we received the news here at AF, that Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd (HMSB) had achieved their 6-month sales target for the new BR-V in a mere three weeks after its local launch. In fact, we’d even hinted to its impending success in a previous article in late 2015. At …

Tyre tests aren’t easy. Given the five senses we have, is it really possible to tell the difference between a good tyre and a bad one? Well, the short answer is yes. Petrolheads will always have their favourite brand and model, and will spend countless hours – not to mention serious bucks – extolling the …

It was almost like a dream sequence. Buckled into the 911 Carrera 4S driver’s seat, I was fighting against lateral g-forces to hold myself upright as I blasted my way into and out of the challenging curves of the Sepang International Circuit… The invitation came a part of Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) open track …

“The Honda BR-V is the kind of vehicle that one with a growing family really needs, but it’s also designed and produced in such a way that families are going to want it as well. Bottom line, is it worth waiting for? Hell yes…”. That’s how I ended my first-impression of the Honda BR-V way …

THE Peugeot brand in Malaysia has not had a very rosy history. It comes as no surprise that anyone would have doubts about committing a year’s salary or more for a vehicle from this brand. But you know the sad thing is, taken as a vehicle and not letting past mismanagement of the brand get …
