Hyundai Ioniq 5's Wow Factor

Hyundai Ioniq 5's Wow Factor

In this edition of Cruise Control, we present you not one, but two car reviews! Being the reasonable people that we are, the two cars we checked out were both used and brand new respectively. But not before delving into some headlines in the automotive world.

It's been a week since the free RapidKL rides this month, so we took the trains into town and found that traffic in the endemic phase is still gridlocked in the popular hotspots. Speaking of endemic, this month also draws the curtains on the pandemic-long SST exemption, much to the chagrin of prospective car buyers in the second half of the year. In other news, a big round of applause to Honda for recalling some of its 2021 models in their very thoughtful damage limitation procedure.

In our first of two car reviews, we go way back to the second generation Audi TT, circa 2007 - 2009, and found some real gems for those inclined to purchase a sports car. And we round it up with the flavour of the week, as Daniel jumps into Hyundai's super impressive electric offering, the Ioniq 5.
