2017 Tata Hexa long term review, second report

Now, normally, I’m not someone who goes weak in the knees when I see a set of big attractive wheels. But the Hexa with those alloys had me at ‘hello’. I loved the five-star design – those big solid spokes catch the light perfectly – and the stance of the car was much improved too, compared to the Aria. I ... Read More »

2017 Hyundai Kona Elite She Says, He Says review

He: Hyundai is a latecomer to the booming baby SUV segment, but it has arrived fashionably late with its new Kona – a bold-looking high-riding hatch based on the latest-generation i30.

2017 Skoda Octavia RS review, road test

Affordable performance cars are finally catching on, and it’s important to remember that one of the pioneers of this sub-segment was the Octavia RS.

2017 Tokyo Motor Show preview: A taste of the wacky, wonderful future

There’s no doubt about it, the Tokyo Motor Show’s importance on the global scene has been on the wane for upwards of two decades. Blame a home market where outside automakers have a tough time cracking the code or the ascent of other international expos like AutoChina.

Visually, there isn’t any ... Read More »

2017 BMW X3 review, test drive

What is it? The third-generation X3 carries on BMW’s tradition of making sporty but practical SUVs. Where the first-generation car was clearly focused on delivering driving pleasure and sporty dynamics, and the second-generation X3 was more practical, this new car promises to deliver both, more luxury and more driving pleasure. Set to rival the Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC when ... Read More »
