mReview: 2022 Opel Mokka-e - Cooler Than ICE

Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1665739495369 1665739495369Our writer truly believes that Opel understands the art of concocting well-rounded economy cars. It’s all about blending the right components with the right amount of flair to create an affordable yet effervescent vehicle. That isn’t to say that the Mokka models (I’m referring to both the ICE and EV versions of the car) are perfect.

There’s just no singular, affordable automotive panacea; every single mass-market car you see offered on sale today has some sort of compromise. It is then a question of the automaker’s priorities. What should they focus on when developing a vehicle?

How can they bring out the best of its flavours, whilst minimising the telltale signs of a light roast? Find out here!

Chances are, you came across a Subaru Forester on your way to work today. There's probably one – or several – parked at your local carpark at this very moment. When it comes to popularity, it’s a certified “cool kid” here.

Whereas the once-ubiquitous Impreza and Legacy saloon cars have steadily fallen out of favour among consumers in Singapore, their Forester sibling has enjoyed a steady surge in demand over the years, with seemingly no signs of stopping.

And here's why that has been the case!

What if you wanted a big, luxurious Japanese sedan, yet it has to be a less common model? Perhaps the Toyota Crown Athlete could be the answer to your conundrum.

Part of the Toyota’s longest running model line, its history stretches all the way back to 1955. Classified as a mid-size luxury sedan, it has been considered as an upmarket offering in Toyota’s line-up, possibly even comparable to Lexus.

But what should you look out for before buying one?
