Jeep is an absolutely amazing brand that earned its heritage the hard way. It wasn’t by becoming popular as the ride of choice for dictators or royalty. It wasn’t by taking part in racing events that entertained a niche crowd. And it wasn’t by building cheap reliable transportation. Oh no, the “hard way” meant winning World War 2. Times have changed though, but current-owners Fiat-Chrysler seem to have strived hard to make sure some of that legendary heritage has rubbed off on the all-new Jeep Renegade.
Ebrahim K. Kanoo, the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in Bahrain, recently announced the launch of the Toyota Camry RZ. It has also gone on sale in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

It was a very nice car, but after the initial euphoria died down, we realised it wasn’t particularly well-built and nowhere near as good as the BMW 3-Series we drove after that. Two generations later, the 2014 edition is quite something else.
Jaguar have revealed the XE in London ahead of its full official debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The XE brings the return for Jaguar in the premium compact sedan segment and will go against the likes of BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
