blogentry-133713-0-43783900-1482838380_thumb.jpegSuzuki has revealed its all new Swift ahead of the Geneva Motor Show for its home market. Looking like a sleeker evolution of its predecessor, the new car looks more menacing to us thanks to it being very slightly longer (+10mm) and shorter ( -10mm).

blogentry-133713-0-61763900-1482838378_thumb.jpegThree engine options are available. Starting with the base engine, a 1.2-litre 90bhp twin-injector Dualjet NA four-cylinder can be found in the cheapest variant while eco-minded buyers will want a mild hybrid version of the same engine that is paired with a 3bhp/50Nm DC synchronous electric motor. The hybrid variant is said to be able to do better than 25km/L.

blogentry-133713-0-36676300-1482838379_thumb.jpegKeen drivers will be more interested in the last engine found in the RSt variant though. Also a three cylinder, this turbocharged 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine puts out a decent 101bhp and 150Nm of torque from 1,700 to 4,500 rpm. It should make the new Swift, which is said to weigh between 840kg and 970kg, pretty brisk. Sadly, the turbo model only comes with a six-speed automatic.

The new Swift is set to go on sale in Japan on January 4 ahead of its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Rear leg room looks a cramped as current model.

 

In the looks department, the Swift has that matured grown-up look compared to the existing model.

Unfortunately the front grille and rearlamps looked too much like the new Mini Cooper.

 

I believed it's a coincidence cos the Swift prototype was leaked months before Mini starts its new Cooper sales. But consumers will think otherwise...

    Accord driver goes bersek and lets camera car rear end him

    After watching this clip that was spotted on SG Road Vigilante, we can't help but see the importance of being able keep our own temper in control. Losing one's temper is easy and when not kept in check, you might end up doing something you will regret in the future. Shot on the evening of 26th of September 2020 along Central Blvd, a Honda Accord can be seen in the video cutting in from the left of the camera car at high speed before slamming onto its brakes real hard. The camera car, which itself seems to be going along at quite some speed, could not stop in time and crashed into the Accord as the result. While no one can confirm the Accord driver's intention, it is almost safe to say that he just wanted to let the camera knock into him by braking hard to a stop for no reason. As it was a slight bump, no one was hurt. The Accord driver then got out calmly and proceed to take some photos. So guys, what do you reckon? Is this part of a road rage incident which the camera car's footage did not show? Or is it an insurance scam? Or is it a combination of both? Let us know in the comments below!

    This is why power is nothing without control

    We always hear the phrase "power is nothing without control"  In this latest blog post, we now can show you exactly what that phrase means. Shared furiously among many Whatapp chats is a video of a recent accident involving a Nissan R35 GT-R losing control in one of the tunnels of the CTE. The matt silver GT-R which does not look stock at all, should be producing quite a bit more than the stock 480bhp (an remap will easily bring the power figures near 600bhp). It can be seen barreling along the tunnel on 11 July 2020 at quite a high speed before losing it all and smashing into the rear of a Mercedes-Benz CLS350.  What did you think made the driver lose control of his AWD GT-R? Could it be a case of malfunction on the car that caused the car to go bonkers? Let us in the comment box!

    Netizens dig out black Golf GTI driver's former antics

    Remember the black Volkswagen mk5 Golf GTI that was spotted racing on CTE at night with an Mitsubishi Evo X before causing a van to crash and flip? Here's a recent cum compilation video of the GTI causing havoc on our roads. As you guys can see these are some pretty reckless driving. A big no-no when dashcams are everywhere. And yes how could we forget the ever-increasing number of Facebook pages that shame bad drivers. Naturally, the comments section on SG Road Vigilante's page has its supporters slamming the driver. On a less serious note, the GTI is a pretty good point and shoot car with its fast-acting DSG box and turbo engine eh?

    Heavy rains expose deadly section of PIE

    With the weather turning slightly wetter in the recent days, this part of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) is turning out to be quite deadly. Shared by the 'good samaritans' of SG Road Vigilante, someone has been recording from his/her apartment some of the accidents that happened at the Jalan Anak Bukit flyover towards the direction of Jurong. As we can all see, all the four incidents had the drivers losing control of the rear of their vehicles as they crest over the left hand turn. Some of drivers looked like they oversped but not every one was doing so. We guessed these drivers all lifted off the accelerator abruptly and/or had bad tyres at the rear while negotiating the turn, causing their vehicles to go into oversteer.  LTA has made this corner less treacherous than before in the recent years but it still does seem to catch quite a few drivers out. Other than having good tyres, our advice when approaching the corner is to maintain your speed and to obviously keep to the speed limit.   P.S. this corner does remind us of the infamous corner, Eau Rouge of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Watch the clip and see how cars go off the corner as they lose the rear of their cars in that deadly turn.
