Not all driving assists are designed for safety. As it turns out, some have been painstakingly engineered for the express purpose of making your driving experience a much more engaging and rewarding one.

And no, we're not talking about turning off the AC to give your car a bump in power. Automakers the world over have spent untold amounts of money to develop clever technologies for their sports-oriented machines, be it to shave off precious seconds around the track, or simply to get you from nought to a hundred quicker than you can say "cheese". 

For this segment, we've compiled a pair of iconic driver-focused assists that are found in numerous performance vehicles today.

How Differently Does An Electric Vehicle Drive?

We’d all be familiar with the driving characteristics of an Internal Combustion Engined car. But electric vehicles do not subscribe to the same set of mannerisms.

That’s because even though both are sources of propulsion, the way forward momentum is achieved varies greatly between the duo. As we are living through a transitional period, automakers have resorted to making their EVs behave like traditional, torque-converter automatics (especially at lower speeds), in a bid to make their cars more familiar to the layman.

But it may not always be like that moving forwards, as mechanically, an engine and an electric motor are functionally very different. If that’s the case, then just how is life like with an EV?

mReview: 2022 Tesla Model 3 Performance - Lightning In A Bottle
Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1654227757687 Tesla+Model+3

I really didn’t understand why the Tesla Model 3 is as well-received as it is. Why would anyone be willing to purchase a technology company’s first foray into manufacturing affordable, mass-market vehicles?

I’m not suggesting that the Model 3 is the very first series production vehicle Tesla has made - far from it actually. Prior to the Model 3, Tesla made their original Lotus-based Roadster and the larger and more luxurious Model S and Model X saloons and SUVs respectively. But even Tesla admits that the Model 3 was designed as their very first mass-market vehicle, sitting in a hotly contested bracket of very competent cars built by legacy automakers.

The SEAT ATECA an unassuming upgrade! | mReview

This SEAT Ateca might not promise the most exhilarating driving experience for most drivers however, it's a pretty safe bet if you're looking for a family car. It is fuel efficient at 16.1km per litre and it is unassumingly spacious for how it looks. It is akin to a revamped SEAT Arona with newer tech features and elevated performance levels.
