When Honda Malaysia calls on us to push their cars to the limit (or any other car company for that matter), it’s a proposition too hard to resist.  A handful of media guests were invited to Kuala Terengganu for a 2-day extensive test programme of Honda’s newest pride, the all-new ninth generation Honda Accord. We were eager to get revving »

Recently, Peugeot Malaysia organised a test drive for the media from Subang to Tanjung Malim via Ulu Yam.  After the short briefing at the Peugeot Lounge at Subang Skypark (the first one in the world exclusive for Peugeot owners only), the hype about this spunky new 208 had us all in a frenzy to get started.  At first sight, the »

I was overwhelmed when my dear editor gave up his seat to Langkawi and handed it to me in a silver platter. It’s per the phone actually.

We have seen many modded rides went straight into the ravine and gravel because of inadequate stopping power, and will undoubtedly see more if the mentality is not changed. What mentality you say? The same ‘I have enough braking power and do not need to upgrade’ mentality, which is usually coupled with a pair of single-pot bone-stock 1.3 calipers with »

It was at first hard to fathom the eye-catching Honda CR-Z hybrid as the successor to the immensely popular and craved for Honda CR-X, which was Honda’s nimble and fast, light hot-hatch of the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.
