The Citroën C5 Aircross is a practical-sized European crossover with a very un-European price tag. This is not your typical hatchback-based crossover, but a properly designed SUV through and through.
Copious interior space, solid build-quality and a European emblem upfront, at a relatively wallet-friendly price tag. It may sound too good to be true, but it isn’t - the Citroën C5 Aircross is just that well thought out!

Our Next Energy (ONE) has developed a battery capable of achieving 752 Miles (1,210km) on a single charge.
The prototype battery is a proof-of-concept developed by ONE, a company based in Michigan, USA. The test was conducted across the state of Michigan at an average speed of 55mph (88km/h).
With the battery fitted to a modified Tesla Model S, the car was able to achieve 882 miles (1,419 km). A vehicle dynamometer test done by a third party validated the claim.

Mercedes-Benz has launched their new C-Class in Singapore, which for the first time, is electrified throughout the model range thanks to mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. The C-Class is one of the most popular Mercedes-Benz models in Singapore and potential customers have much to look forward to.
All cars in the C-Class line-up now feature a 48V mild-hybrid system with an integrated starter-generator as standard and a plug-in hybrid model will be available in the next few months.
Until that arrives, Mercedes-Benz is offering four models, the C180 and C200, both available in either Avantgarde or AMG Line variants.

The 2021 MINI John Cooper Works 3-Door is the funnest MINI yet. While lacking practicality in the back seats, it more than makes up for it with its extra power and other features. This car is definitely a driver's vehicle!
