The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the bread-and-butter of the great German marque. This nameplate has almost 30 years of history, and we've had a go in this latest iteration!
Now in its fifth generation, the new C-Class, dubbed the W206, debuts a few key features never before seen in its predecessors. You can buy your non-AMG C-Class in two variants - the C180 and C200, each available in two trim levels, the Avantgarde and the AMG Line.
So what is the new C-Class like? Find out here!
Say hello to the Artura, McLaren’s latest hybrid supercar that will set the standards for future models with its newfangled technologies and advancements.
Debuting in time for the 2022 F1 Singapore Grand Prix at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre (Hall 404, to be exact) last week, the Artura was accompanied by 20 other iconic McLaren cars at its Singapore launch, including the 765LT Spider, Speedtail, and Elva. An ultra-rare Mercedes-McLaren SLR McLaren Edition was also part of the lineup, representing a more analogue past.
Modern cars are the same, with each new generation one-upping the last, cramming technology to the brim. You couldn't drive more than 10 metres without some bing or bong going out hysterically telling you to stop immediately.
But, what if you didn't have all of these things? What if, you travelled back in time, to a period where cars felt raw, and had actual soul?
Welcome then, to this beautiful piece of machinery - the Toyota Celica.
The insanely popular Toyota Sienta seven-seater MPV is now back in Singapore, and this time it's even more spacious and practical than ever before.
Officially launched by Inchcape Singapore on October 6, the latest generation Sienta now sits on Toyota's latest TNGA-B platform. The new platform allows for even better joint rigidity, which in turn helps improve both ride comfort and handling stability of the vehicle. An acoustic windshield and bonnet silencers have also been incorporated to further improve noise insulation.
This will also be the only Category A seven-seater hybrid MPV sold by any authorised dealer in Singapore.
Possibly the undisputed leader in the Compact Executive Saloon segment, the BMW 3 Series is what other manufacturers benchmark their own models against.
The 3 Series has been BMW’s best seller since it was first launched in 1975, and it’s little wonder why. Each succeeding generation has continually improved on the one before in functionality, power, comfort and desirability, so its success comes as no surprise.
With each generation, BMW has its signature double kidney grille adorning each one, as well as the modern rendition of the four circular headlight design of the original 3 Series. It can be said that its design is more evolutionary rather than revolutionary, and the ethos remains mostly the same even up to the current generation.
To renew or not to renew? That is the question we want to discuss in the 4th episode of the Talk Car Sing Song Podcast! Jackie will be discussing this with Motorist's very own Chief Marketing Officer, Jake Ler and our fellow car enthusiast, Kelvin (@kelvin.xi) to the potential options to take when your COE is expiring.
