Honda's CR-Z goes Type R

By CheeJun on 02 Mar 2010

Attached Image
Hybrids never fail to bore people unless they're nerds who love to talk all day about how they work or compare how many batteries their hybrid has. However, Honda's revelation of the CR-Z changed the world's perception of hybrids. What used to be stereotyped as slow and aesthetically boring is now sporty and rather handsome. Now there are plans to create another version to stuff the shoes into the mouths of hardcore petrol-heads, behold the CR-Z Type R.

Toughen up VW Polo

By SYF77 on 01 Mar 2010

Along with the Bluemotion and GTI Polo models, Volkswagen will also be staging the latest generation CrossPolo, which is a beefed up version of the Polo. It sports black plastic molding around the wheel arches, across the sills and bottom of each door, as well as on the front and rear bumpers. The front bumper gets a honeycomb treatment for the lower air intake and light silver trim at the bottom suggests the presence of underbody protection. Also included are the CrossPolo's trademark silver anodized roof rails and handsome 17-inch two-tone wheels.

The argument against the A1's different coloured pillars.

By Rigval on 01 Mar 2010

Attached Image
So we now have heard that Audi is about to enter the premium small car market with the Audi A1. The current market leaders of this market segment are the BMW Mini, the Fiat 500 and to some extent the Alfa Mito. These cars allow car manufacturers to charge a whole lot more for the same small package and of course, Audi being the premium marque in the VW-Audi stable is their contender. But after scrutinizing the pictures it is my opinion that Audi is trying too hard with those flowing A to C pillar 'different colour from the body' scheme.

Like all Jaguars, the new XK looks like its in a class of its own. With curves which appear to be inspired by the Aston Martin One-77, and that new grille from the XF, the old 'Spitfire Wing' oval shape which dates back to the E-type of the 1960s will be retired to make way for this all new sheetmetal and grille design. The new Jag will be on sale to the public from 2013.

One of the biggest surprises yet. Proton has revealed that they will be sending a Hybrid Concept to the Geneva Motor Show. And the news gets even better, this particular concept was penned in collaboration with Giugiaro, the Italian designer who has nothing short of an illustrious portfolio with the beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT in 1972 to the 159 we know today, even the first Golf and Scirocco was penned by the great man. Of course it wasn't just done by him alone, but by his company. And now, there's the Hybrid Concept from Proton. Will that be a spot of rust on his gleaming trophy of designer excellence?

Fastest way to get your hair restyled

By SYF77 on 24 Feb 2010

Attached Image
If you have enough dough, you may wish to engage the all-new Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible for the fastest hair restyling job. This new convertible is billed as the fastest and most powerful drop-top that Bentley ever produced, as well as the quickest four-seat convertible in the world. It is not hard to understand why this is so when you have a twin-turbocharged W12 engine under its hood. This is the same unit found on the Continental Supersports Coupe. It produces 621 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 800Nm of torque at 2,000-4,500 rpm.

Stress free driving in Malaysia for the holidays

By Rigval on 23 Feb 2010


Attached Image - Malaysian Route 1 (near Tampin, Negeri Sembilan)- Or the old road from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru. Traffic jam free on Chinese New Year's day.

Although this would be slightly belated, I'd like to wish all the readers of myautoblog a Happy belated Chinese New Year. Now some of you may have traveled up north into Malaysia during the holidays either for the traditional reunion or for some well deserved R&R. But traveling in Malaysia during any festive season tends to be a little tiresome and stressful. This is because everyone takes advantage of the holidays to go somewhere. Whether to their hometown, some holiday destination or just to travel to that certain prawn mee shop a few hundred kilometers from where they are at just to find some good food. It is because of this and the fact that Malaysia registers at least 150,000 cars a year and at each household has an average of one car or two per house.

Snow driving in Sweden! Part 1

By Ragingbull on 22 Feb 2010

Think Scandinavian rally driver.

That's what I was (or rather trying to be) for the three special days I spent up in snow country, Sweden. Tucked away in a small area of town called Arjeplog, the small community of inhabitants grow to almost double it's size during the winter months when people from other parts of the world head over to occupy their winter homes and tourists like myself who attend driving courses by the various car brands (I had breakfast across the room from the gang from AMG).

So besides IKEA and Swedish meatballs, Sweden, especially when the mercury decides to plunge well below in the negative region, have been known to have one of the most ideal conditions for a special group of people - Car Testers. These individuals, mostly made up of engineers, come from all over the world with their specially analytically-equipped laptops to test their brand's new models behaviour in such extreme weather conditions in Sweden.

Here's a pick-up truck you'd want to own

By CheeJun on 20 Feb 2010

Attached Image
Pick-up trucks. Well they aren't usually the most favourable mode of transport for most people because if you were to buy a vehicle it would usually be a car or an MPV. Pickups never really crossed your mind unless you really had a need for it, for instance if you were in the construction business or if your work involved transporting huge items which a normal boot can't fit. But Volkswagen recently revealed the Amarok which actually means 'Wolf' in the Inuit language, or 'he loves stones' in romance languages of South America. Whatever you want to interpret the name as, you can't deny the fact that this looks ready for any natural disaster you throw at it.

Mazda's new roadster: The MX-2

Attached Image: mazada_mx2_f.jpg
The all time classic can now look forward to a smaller brother, the Mazda MX-2. Set to be unveiled in 2012, the new addition to the Mazda family is definitely going to create waves, especially among the fans of the current Mazda MX-5. If this new family member is going to be as good as or better than the already timeless MX-5, the affordable, lightweight convertible sports-car market is going to be overwhelmed by this new baby.
