After the BMW 5-Series GT, the German luxury car manufacturer has reiterated the GT concept by adding it to the 6 Series range. The termination of the 6-Series Coupe has liberated a bit of room to accommodate the new addition. BMW hopes that the swooping coupe-ish lines of the 6 Series will revive the sales of the GT.

So we bought a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT

2015-Chrysler-300-SRT-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we bought a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT

Yep, we’ve bought yet another car, adding to our ever-expanding self-owned long-term fleet. We hyped it long enough on our Facebook page where we asked our fans to guess the car, and it was great fun watching the comments pour in. This here is a 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT in a rare red colour, and in full-option trim — so fully-optioned, that you won’t find this specification at all dealers as it was originally custom-ordered.

So we got a 2017 Honda CR-V

2017-Honda-CR-V-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Honda CR-V

We drove this new Honda CR-V just before heading out to Japan to drive, among other things, a Civic Type-R. While the two cars are miles apart, it is easy to forget that Honda has always been a clever engineering company, given that we don’t see the company’s most popular creations at showrooms here. However, the new CR-V actually has a lot of engineering poured into it, for the benefit of regular folks rather than just enthusiasts. Read More ▶

First drive: 2018 Volkswagen Arteon in Germany

Volkswagen-Arteon-R-Line-Marouf-600x450 First drive: 2018 Volkswagen Arteon in Germany

When Volkswagen first debuted the Passat CC, it turned quite a few heads. Not only because it looked good, but also the question of “why?”, especially as the CC version was priced higher than an already-existing Passat. Lucky for us at that time, Volkswagen decided to help us understand the “why” question and offered us the VW Passat CC V6 for 5 months. If you had been following our reports back in 2011, you would probably know we bloody fell in love with that car. Power, handling, comfort and luxury in a more stylish package — it ticked all the right boxes and justified the price premium over the standard Passat. Read More ▶

First drive: 2018 Jeep Compass in Portugal

2018-Jeep-Compass-in-Portugal-600x450 First drive: 2018 Jeep Compass in Portugal

In terms of sheer volume, there is no bigger automotive segment than the one comprising compact SUVs. Jeep recognised this more than a decade ago and rolled out the Compass and Patriot to target the horde of (mainly) young buyers snapping up crossovers by the hundreds of thousands. It was a new foray for a brand that had until that point focused on larger, heavy-duty SUVs that embodied Jeep’s conquer-all-terrain roots. Read More ▶

The 2018 Hyundai Kona crossover is a surprise reveal, considering we figured they had every segment covered with the Creta, the Tuscon and the Hyundai Santa Fe. Riding on a brand-new B-segment platform, the Kona previews a funky styling that some say will show up in their aforementioned offerings as well. Read More ▶

BMW M8 prototype and 8-Series concept revealed

2019-BMW-M8-600x450 BMW M8 prototype and 8-Series concept revealed

Sporting a gorgeous silhouette, the BMW 8-Series Concept debuted at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Minus a few details, the concept should pretty much represent the production BMW 8-Series that is expected to hit markets in 2018. Resurrecting the “8-Series” moniker, an M8 version has also already been announced, with the prototype shown at the ‘Ring. Read More ▶

VLF resurrects Hummer H1 as Humvee C Series

humvee-c-series-2-600x428 VLF resurrects Hummer H1 as Humvee C Series

The Hummer H1 was a mighty brute that offered the ruggedness of the military-spec Humvee to the general public. Though the Hummer brand was made mainstream by later-owners GM with the Hummer H2 and the smaller H3 that followed it, the H1 always retained that cult status. Hummer as a brand was shut down by GM during the last financial crisis. But now, 11 years after its demise, the H1 has been resurrected. Sort of. Read More ▶

First drive: 2018 Kia Rio in the UAE

2018-kia-rio-2-600x450 First drive: 2018 Kia Rio in the UAE

The Kia Rio is the South Korean carmaker’s sub-compact hatchback offering. It’s not exactly the first car that comes to mind in this category, primarily dominated by the Japanese, but it has some presence in the UAE market (and rocking it in the KSA market) due its decent price-tag. However, the all-new Rio seems to have upped its game, and we recently had a go in it at a media drive event in the UAE. Read More ▶
