Tests by consumer organisation Which? have found that a large number of new diesel cars still exceed the new, tougher emissions limits in “real-world” testing. Much fanfare has been made about the new WLTP and RDE fuel economy and emissions tests that were introduced by the EU last year, and which will apply to all new cars from this September. But based on the Which? research, a number of car manufacturers are still exploiting weaknesses in the testing procedures to build cars that pump far more toxins into the air than they should. The tests have found that although some petrol cars produce excessive emissions when put through more rigorous testing than the EU requires, it is new diesel cars that are still spewing the highest levels of pollution from their exhausts.

While some college students don’t need a car on campus, Imani goes to a school that is pretty isolated, and she needs a car to help her get around and help her enjoy some other activities. What car should she buy? (Welcome back to What Car Should You Buy? Where we give real people real advice about buying cars. Do you want us to help you find a car? Submit your story on our form.) Here is the scenario: I go to a college in a very remote rural area. As such, everything is spaced out to the point where walking anywhere requires an extensive evaluation of my schedule to determine if I have time to get groceries or make it to class before it ends because I overslept. In addition to that, the city that I come from is about five hours away, so holiday breaks are always a hassle because I don’t know how I’m going to get home since I don’t have a car and I can’t afford to pay for a $100 bus ticket every break. I want this car to be fuel efficient, have … [Read more...] about I Go To College In The Middle Of Nowhere! What Car Should I Buy?
The car industry of Pakistan isn’t anywhere as big as ours. However, the Pakistan car market gets some really good cars that aren’t on sale in our country. Here are ten interesting cars Pakistan gets but India doesn’t. Toyota Hilux Pick-up trucks have never been popular in India. Even the Isuzu V-cross, which has found quite a few takers in India, isn’t anywhere as popular as some similarly priced SUVs. No wonder, then, that the Toyota Hilux isn’t on sale in India. The Hilux is the same pick-up truck with which the Fortuner shares its underpinnings. The Pakistan-spec Hilux is powered by a 2755cc, four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine that outputs 130 PS and 420 Nm. Toyota Avanza The Avanza is basically a smaller-than-Innova-Crysta MPV that’s not on sale in India but is available in Pakistan. The Avanza is the size of the Maruti Ertiga and the now defunct Honda Mobilio. It is powered by a 1.5-liter petrol engine that outputs 103 bhp. The Avanza … [Read more...] about 10 interesting cars Pakistan gets but India doesn’t: Jimny to Civic

CROSSOVERS and SUVs have become so ubiquitous that to stand out in a crowded field you need to do something a little bit different, writes William Scholes. That's clearly the approach that Mitsubishi has adopted with its latest SUV, dubbed the Eclipse Cross. Aimed at the overcrowded part of market in which everything from the Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Kuga, Renault Kadjar and Mazda CX-5 - and I could go on... and on - jostles for position, Mitsubishi has decided to do something a bit out of the ordinary. As you can tell from the pictures, the Eclipse Cross is a sleeker looking proposition than we usually see in this class of car, aided by a low - almost coupe-like, if you squint a bit - roofline. In this regard, it is not unlike Toyota's C-HR; both manage to look somehow more futuristic than their rivals, though in the Mitsubishi's case the sense is enhanced further by an unorthodox split rear tailgate window. Other examples of clever thinking can be seen … [Read more...] about Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Daring to be different
