The UAE’s Ministry of Energy has announced the new prices for petrol that will be valid for the month of December.
About two months ago, Kia gave us a glimpse of the Rio supermini hatchback at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Now a new model from the Kia stable is letting us have a look at the 2018 Kia Rio sedan. The K2 sedan intended for China is not exactly the Rio, but it will be what the 2018 Rio sedan will look like with some minor changes.
If you’ve read our previous reviews of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG cars, you’ll realise that we don’t particularly find them impressive, specifically anything that seats more than two. All of their beefed-up sedans and coupes are rocket-fast, but when it comes to corners, it’s either severe understeer with the ESP in ‘sport-plus’ mode, or complete oversteer with the ESP fully off. Their rear-wheel-drive four-seater models are rather unbalanced cars compared to BMWs, held in line only by electronic nannies, which is why many of them now come with all-wheel-drive. The only car they currently have that’s truly an engaging drive is the AMG GT sports car.
The all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class made its debut in the GCC, with the German manufacturer calling it their most intelligent car yet. While we have yet to get proper wheel-time with it, Mercedes-Benz is keen to point out that their ‘smart car’ has a whole host of new active safety features. We got chaperoned around at an event to experience some of the safety features which are part of the optional Driving Assistance Packing available in the 2017 E-Class.
The new Ecoboost-powered 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is currently in the final stages of hot-weather testing, right here in the UAE. Everything is being thoroughly tested to see if it is suitable for our Middle East style of offroading, including ground clearance, approach and departure angles, cooling systems, tractive capability and passenger comfort.
Since the day of its release, Ford’s EcoBoost engine has attracted a lot of critical acclaim for being powerful and fuel-efficient at the same time, at least in comparison to a V8. The Ford F-150 pickup also has EcoBoost powertrains on offer which have now improved for 2017.
In 2014’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Chevrolet flaunted a concept ZR2 version of their Colorado pickup. And now, after 2 years, they have revealed the production version of the Colorado ZR2. The ZR2 is claimed to be a pickup that has the grunt and the guts to blast down an off-the-grid track.
The 2017 Jeep Compass bridges the gap between the small Renegade and the slightly-beyond-compact Cherokee. Publicly debuting the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new Compass aims to liven up the sales of the compact SUV with the refresh.
