Volkswagen's Futuristic Hatchback

This week on Cruise Control we delve into the latest headlines in the local and regional automotive markets, plus a review of Volkswagen's iconic hatchback.

We start with a quick check-in on the sales figures at Honda Malaysia, as the ASEAN focused WR-V excited the market since its launch two months ago. In business news, Sime Darby Auto Selection's acquisition of shares in UMW caught us unaware, agreeing a deal that ultimately made them the biggest conglomerate in the local market. We also learn about Pos Malaysia's electric mobility plan as orders for e-scooters from Modenas were submitted by the country's postal service recently.

Our petrolheads then discuss the Ministry of Trade and Cost of Living's Consumer Protection Act pertaining workshops and accreditations for mechanics, and round off this episode with Daniel's impressions on a legendary model by German giants Volkswagen, taking the latest Golf GTi hatchback for a spin.
