blogentry-133713-0-49708000-1474345669_thumb.jpgThe all new Honda Freed has gone on sale in Japan and is available in hybrid and normal petrol variants. For the Japanese market, buyers can choose from 16 different variants of the car, with choices of it being a normal five seater or a six/seven seater. There is also a special-needs version of the Freed for those who have passengers who are wheelchair bound. You can also have your car with all-wheel drive if you wish.

 

blogentry-133713-0-01243100-1474345670_thumb.jpgThe normal Freed is 4,265mm in length with some models of the Freed+ a further 30mm longer to allow for more cargo space. Interestingly, the Freed+ only comes in five seater guise while the normal Freed can be had in six or seven seater guise. Elsewhere, rear sliding doors now open 665mm (an increase of 20mm) for easier entry. A 15mm lower ground height helps too.

The new Freed also gets a cleaner-looking dashboard design with a total of three interior colours (black, beige and mocha).

 

blogentry-133713-0-12122100-1474354044_thumb.jpgSince the freed is based on the Honda Fit/Jazz, it's no surprise the powertrains available are largely similar. Buyers will have a choice of a 129bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC petrol that is mated to a CVT or a hybrid i-DCD powertrain that makes use of a 108bhp 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC engine that is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an 29bhp electric motor.

 

blogentry-133713-0-61177100-1474345671_thumb.jpgThe front-wheel drive versions of the Hybrid can return up to 27.2km/L while the petrol variant will achieve 19km/L.

    Traffic Police bike gets into accident while chasing offender

    Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there.

    Someone is keen to show that their Swift Sport can do 180km/h on the CTE!

    Now this is not very smart. Thanks to social media apps like Instagram allowing news to spread like bush fire, you now best keep your 'bad' stuff to yourself... Check out this video of some mates videoing themselves going at high speed on our expressways in the wee morning of 10th May 2020. As seen on SG Road Vigilante, this insta story posted by n1zem, shows them going as fast as 180km/h in their Suzuki Swift Sport. Granted, the roads are pretty empty as we are in the midst of the Circuit Breaker period but there is still no reason for going this fast.  For those who are wondering, 'Naked Crew" is a local car group and they can be found on Instagram. As usual, the comments by netizens are harsh and probably a bit hurtful. 1.mp4

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)   What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.

    Singer rants on Facebook about cars making "loud explosive noise"

    A popular local Singer/Songwriter has taken to her facebook page to rant about cars making loud explosive noises where she lives. 1 bang 2.mp4 In her post, Beverly Morata Grafton pointed out in her post she has been experiencing "exhausts have been popping off like gunshots from 10:30pm and counting. And like every weekend since mid April, they will do so until 4am plus in the morning..."  From her photos and videos that she provided, we gathered that these incidents happenen along Yishun Ave 1, where Sinopec Yishun is situated at. This stretch has a speed camera but car enthusiasts are known to still gun their cars there while heading towards the Yishun Dam. We will not go into the rest of her post as it can be a bit demeaning and vulgar. For those who are curious, you can view her post below. In the video that was taken on the 25th of April, we could identify a white Volkswagen Golf accelerating away quickly from the petrol station before letting off some loud bangs, much to the annoyance of the songwriter.     Being a post on the writer's personal page, it was no surprise to find the comments supporting her views.    But what do you guys think? More pops and bangs for everyone? Or should we cooperate for quieter neighbourhoods?
