A Longer Wheelbase Factor

A Longer Wheelbase Factor

In this week's edition of Cruise Control, our trio of petrolheads preview a couple of incoming luxury SUVs, take a slightly longer Beemer for a drive, and peep into the thieves market to see which vehicle is the most susceptible to thefts!

Big & burly are the flavours this week as Hyundai and Range Rover both unveiled mammoth luxury SUVs respectively, the Korean automakers announcing a facelift edition of the Palisade, while Range Rover also prepare for the official launch of the classic L460; an all new edition with its classic, imposing frame.

We also explore what's trending in the automotive industry, where car thefts are still a major concern, understandably, especially for owners of pristine-conditioned Proton Wira, Toyota Hilux and Mercedes Benz.

We conclude with Daniel's impression of a facelift version of BMW's 330 Li, boasting a longer wheelbase (only a fraction!), made exclusively with the Chinese automotive market in mind.
