An EV Purr-fect for City Driving

An EV Purr-fect for City Driving

In this edition of Cruise Control, our petrol heads take you through some of the latest launches in the local automotive market, complete with a test drive of an electric car that could work for city dwellers.

On the local front, Subaru announced the new and improved WRX Sportswagon, bringing back a design that's been overlooked especially with the popularity of compact crossovers worldwide. Speaking of crossovers, it looks like Suzuki might also be tempted to jump in the crowded segment by offering the S-Cross, reintroduced with a full hybrid engine and a right-hand drive to boot.

In a battle between two Perodua seven-seaters, we compare and contrast the slightly dated Aruz versus the highly popular Alza! Both have similar specs, but what makes one SUV trump out the other?

And we round it off with Daniel's first impressions behind the wheels of the electric Ora Good Cat 500 Ultra, set to arrive on our shores with a price point that might convince customers thinking about picking up an EV.
