It was the Clio RS that stopped people in their tracks. Which was a surprise. In the cold light of day, the five-door, pencil-sharpened hatch looks a bit strange, oddly unadorned; but at night, city-lit from above in a pool of orange sodium, the Renault looks steely, chiselled, clean and crisp, wide and low, its headlights glinting. Ipoh’s nightlife stopped with unexpected regularity, and looked, pointed, and said ooh and ah, look-at-that-what-is-it? Meanwhile, the Ford Fiesta ST, in a lighter shade of red – probably one of the greatest, most satisfying, most perfectly balanced and tuned driver’s cars to be built this decade, if not this century – was ignored. Maybe they couldn’t see that it was an ST. Maybe they didn’t care. Maybe it doesn’t matter. No, sorry, I’m going to have to stop you there. It matters. The same goes for the Peugeot 208 GTi. This 200 hp pocket-rocket could roll along through a crowded street without anyone … [Read more...] about Ford Fiesta ST vs Peugeot 208 GTi vs Renault Clio RS 200

MILLIONS of Brits are making a simple mistake when it comes to their car insurance, costing them up to £278 each year. Motorists that fall into the trap of automatically renewing their insurance policy or staying with the same provider can end up paying more than they would if they shopped around. According to research conducted by MoneySuperMarket, over 60 per cent of drivers will stick with their current policy holder because they had the cheapest price the previous year. But the move ends up contributing to a total £652.5million that Brits waste for failing to check out other providers. The study found that motorists who let their policy automatically renew saw their premiums rise by £50 on average - but that figure could be as much as £278. If drivers shop around when it comes time to renew their policy, they could see maximum savings of close to £280. Top reasons for motorists auto-renewing their car insurance rather than changing providers Happy with the … [Read more...] about The easy way to save up to £278 on your car insurance that millions ignore every year
The new Honda Jazz Sport Hybrid is currently the title bearer of Malaysia’s cheapest hybrid vehicle. Priced at RM84,880 on-the-road without insurance, Honda Malaysia (HM) opened the floodgates to a whole new pool of individuals who are eager to embrace electrified motoring. However, while excitement brewed, the company remains cautiously optimistic with a monthly sales target of 150 units (250 units for the City Hybrid), and that’s for the whole of Malaysia, mind you. Hotshot critics with business insights will have you believe that it’s a pessimistic target, but it’s in many ways a calculated measure of acquainting hybrid technology to those who are genuinely interested. Plus, it could well lay the foundations for future hybrid models to come – not too dissimilar a strategy from the Civic turbo’s introduction prior to the CR-V – considering the increasing variety of electrified vehicles within the automaker’s portfolio. Just a few months … [Read more...] about DRIVEN: Honda Jazz Sport Hybrid
A newspaper cover story jumped out at us yesterday, and it was BH Ahad‘s ‘Harga kereta turun’ headline. The eye-catching headline was supported by visuals of local, Japanese and European cars, purported examples of models that are now cheaper (by 8% to 20.77%) thanks to “the strengthening of the ringgit” and “the government’s automotive policy”. It merited a flip to pages four and five of Berita Harian‘s Sunday edition, which revealed more examples of cars that are now cheaper compared to five years ago. According to the report, the Perodua Alza is now 14.18% (RM8,369.27) cheaper, the Proton Exora 2.25% (RM1,509.67) cheaper, the VW Golf 11.77% (RM20,000) cheaper, the Honda Jazz Hybrid 8% (RM7,650) cheaper, the Perodua Myvi 12.15% (RM6,124) cheaper, the Proton Preve 20.77% (RM15,157.19) cheaper, the Proton Saga 14.88% (RM6,220.71) cheaper and the Proton Persona (RM8,281.91) 15.59% cheaper. If you remember, both Barisan Nasional and … [Read more...] about Have cars in Malaysia become cheaper over the last few years? We dissect the ‘Harga Kereta Turun’ report
