Motorist Car Buyer's Guide: Honda Accord Euro R 
Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1657852881376 Honda+Accord+Euro

When Honda fitted an Accord with a high-revving engine, other go-fast accoutrements and "R" badging, would you have expected anything less?

Part of a final group that came with some of the finest naturally aspirated engines Honda ever produced (with the others being the FD2 Civic Type R and the DC5 Integra Type R), the Accord Euro R has obtained modern classic status. Popular as it was when it was first introduced, its price and demand have not dwindled even as it ages.

First Drive: Tesla Model Y - Silent High Rider

Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1657853104696 Tesla+Model+Y

Tesla’s entry into the ultra-competitive crossover market in Singapore is now official, with the arrival of their Model Y. Equipped to impress and priced to entice, the company’s new compact crossover is pulling out all the stops to succeed.

How well does the Model Y fare, then? To find out, we drove around town in the Performance variant for a brief period of time after the launch event (which we covered here), courtesy of Tesla. Navigating through the streets of Orchard Road and Raffles Boulevard at lunchtime was a challenge and a half, but our preliminary thoughts on this premium EV are promising.

mReview: Audi RS 3 Sportback - Ridiculously Swift
Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1657869967318 Rs3+Audi

Your hands grip firmly around the steering wheel. Your eyes focus on the road up ahead, lane markers quickly dissolving into a continuous white streak. Time slows down as the speed climbs.

The unmistakable sound of a turbocharged five-cylinder powerplant reaching its redline fills the cabin. And with the flick of the upshift paddle, the car changes cogs at lightning speed, and continues on its rapid journey across the expressway networks. 

Welcome, everyone, to the RS 3 Sportback. It’s a special little number concocted by the boffins over at Audi Sport – the German brand’s high-performance car manufacturing arm – and it may just be this year’s hottest hatch by a far mile.
