The GAC GS3 Emzoom Is For The Young, The Youthful, And The Creative

One thing that you can count on with car brands today is how incredibly creative they have become. Gone are the days when performance always held more weight than the aesthetic. Today, the personality of a car is judged by not only how well it drives, but largely about how the design and overall look could complement the lifestyle and character of its potential owner. After all, back in the day, aftermarket modifications were all the rage and all it took was a trip from the dealership straight to your favorite shop along Banawe for a quick upgrade.

The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Is A Tito Car And That's Not Such A Bad Thing

On the surface, being labeled as a “Tito’s car” may seem insulting; after all, carmakers are always targeting the youth or youth-oriented demographic. However, in my experience with the all-new Subaru Crosstrek (the crossover formerly known as the Subaru XV), whether it’s by design or accident, its practical packaging and easy-to-drive demeanor make it the great car for those who’ve just hit their mid-forties. Let me explain.

Subaru Plugs In Another Niche With The First-Ever Levorg (WRX) Layback

After teasing it last month, Subaru has finally revealed the first-ever WRX (Levorg) Layback. Continuing the Japanese’s brand of coming up with weird, but commercially successful mishmash of vehicles, the Layback basically takes a WRX Wagon (aka Levorg Wagon in Japan), adds some cladding and ground clearance; and voila, turns it into another new crossover.

First Drive: 2024 Omoda 5

The truth is in the pudding, or so they say. After claiming that they see themselves as a global brand that’s taken the pulse of the youth, it’s finally time to sample Omoda’s first-ever product: the Omoda 5. How is it, you ask? Well, let’s put it this way: it’s taken design risks—some of which have paid off handsomely, while others don’t seem to go far enough.

Review: 2024 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i-S

Whenever a carmaker comes up with a new nameplate, it comes with the expectation that the overall experience would be new and transformative. Yet when Subaru decided to axe the “XV” name in favor of “Crosstrek,” the resulting crossover feels like it took two steps forward and two steps back. It continues the Subaru XV’s careful, and at times, painfully slow evolution. To be fair, the crossover formerly known as the XV, is hard to beat. Among its competitors—the beautiful Mazda CX-30 among them—the Crosstrek is the one we’d take in a heartbeat. It’s a bit boring, sure, but it’s just so well-attuned to our road conditions be it in design, packaging, and safety.
