Following the A-Class, the CLA is next to go under the knife of Mercedes-Benz AMG performance division - to be honed as a thoroughbred tarmac burner. Having recently arrived on our shores, this could just be the perfect blend of style and performance.

There should be no qualms about the CLA's ability to turn heads - more so this AMG version. Having been spruced up quite a bit, it now has the right muscles at the right spots, and is not shy to flaunt its potent performance underneath the hood.

Of course, AMG's works are more than skin deep. The CLA 45 sports a slew of technical trickeries - such as AMG-tuned 4MATIC all-wheel drive, twin-scroll turbocharger, AMG sports exhaust system with automatic exhaust flap control etc. All these helps to put the 360bhp and 450Nm of torque firmly onto the tarmac, in the usual AMG way with a characterful howl that should easily leave bystanders in awe.

To ensure the CLA gets the right dose of AMG DNA, its 2.0-litre engine is built the same way as its bigger brothers - according to the traditional 'one man, one engine' philosophy.

A seven speed twin-clutch DCT sports transmission helps despatch power to all four wheels, and achieve a century sprint timing of 4.6 seconds.

Likewise, the cabin of the CLA 45 AMG is no less dramatic than its sheet metal.

While we haven't got the chance to get up close with this street racer, we thought we might as well enjoy these lovely photos from the manufacturer.

    OK Boomers! We have the car you have been asking for.. Or is it?

    The Toyota Camry has always had an 'uncle's car' stigma to it, but the new one now is dressed with radically sportier and sharper looks, so is it necessarily deserving of the association? We put one to the test! Toyota and Lexus alike have a perchance for large grilles, and it seems the Camry has no qualms about sporting the same! So no prizes for guessing what captures Jon's attention here As you would expect, the Camry is really well appointed inside, But Julian finds something he really likes about the dash! And is it comfortable to drive? I think this picture tells alot... Or maybe the sgCarMart crew is a lot busier than they look? So is the new Camry still deserving of its 'Uncle's car' image? Or has the sporty image come with upgrades to the rest of the car befitting of a younger audience? You have to watch the full video to find out!

    No inspiration for your holiday plans? Check out this MyCarForum member's drive through the Pacific Coast Highway in a C-HR!

    MyCarForum member 'therock' shared with us this week his latest adventure all the way from the U.S.A's Pacific West Coast! With plenty of B-roads to savour, amazing sights to take in and jolly good food to boot, what more could you ask from a driving holiday? Here's what I think is the best part of the thread: The drive was done in the popular Toyota C-HR, what a madman! In his own words, therock "wanted to try a car which (he) might consider buying and (he) wanted an SUV so it came down to the RAV4 or the C-HR depending what was available." Thankfully, the U.S-spec C-HR comes as a 2.0-litre which we imagine must be way better for chewing through those long distances than the local 1.2-litre spec car. Talking about chewing... the thread has plenty of glorious food porn as well. Cause you know, AMERICA! Looks like therock is still uploading more pictures of his epic drive, so do go down and check out the rest of the thread here! All pictures are shared here courtesy of MyCarForum member therock.   ----------------------------------------------- Check out the rest of the thread by therock here! And if the post has inspired you to embark on your own drive don't forget to leave a like or a comment! -----------------------------------------------

    Yoga Teacher throws a tantrum at Grab driver when she does not "get her way."

    A recent YouTube video of a lady berating a Grab driver with verbal insults is going viral. If you haven't already watched it, here's the link to the video. You’re welcome. Do note how the person who submitted the video titled it, it's important.    In the video, the lady wants her driver to make a U-Turn and head towards her destination by her preferred route. The driver refuses and tells her that it's the Grab driver's discretion to choose to listen to the rider or follow the fastest route as indicated on the GPS.  In this case, he flat out refused because he was scared there would be a traffic jam. We went to do a little digging and ta-dah! It turns out he was right!   Image taken from Grab.com The lady should have kept her cool and Googled whether the driver's claim was true, but of course, she didn't. She starts to "play family" which was very uncalled for. Here are some of her comments: Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Why lah? Why? What did his family do to you? Screenshot of video from Traffic SG Facebook page Naturally, the driver gets offended by her rude comments and starts shooting his mouth off to her as well. He questions her marital status out of nowhere. I honestly thought he was going to talk about another part of the male body. The lady goes on to tell the driver that "if he represents what Singaporean men are, no one needs to get married." By now, you should be curious as to how the lady looks like. Throughout the whole video, the spotlight is on the driver and she doesn’t show her face, but we found her.   Taken from balispiritfestival.worldsecuresystems.com Wait a minute. Anybody have anything to say? Of course they do! Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Me and you sister!  If you want the driver to follow your preferred route in the future then here's a helpful suggestion from a member of the public.   Image taken from Traffic SG Facebook page Very wise words. The lady's Facebook page have since been deactivated. ----------------------------------------------- Worried that you too might be an obnoxious passenger? Check out the most irritating behaviors that we face as drivers! -----------------------------------------------

    VEP delayed till 2020 or maybe when your grandchildren have children

    If you've been one of the "kan cheong" people waiting to get your Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) approved before driving into Malaysia, here's some good news for you - The implementation of the VEP scheme will only commence next year. According to The Straits Times, Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke claimed that the delay is due to the system's inability to cope with the exponential number of vehicles that needed to install the RFID tag. It seems that many Singaporeans are not surprised by this delay. It’s not the first time that there has been a delay with the implementation of the VEP and you can be sure people were quick to call that out.  And some people make pretty sound arguments. Wait, does this mean that Singaporean car owners with the RFID tags did the application and probably wasted a weekend queueing up in Malaysia for nothing? Sounds about right.  Malaysia Boleh? Case closed. ----------------------------------------------- Still wondering how to get your VEP? We went through the entire process so you can have this handy guide here! -----------------------------------------------
