Welcome back to our best stories of the week on our sister site Live Life Drive. This week has been a busy one with a lot happening locally and internationally, specifically the Geneva Motor Show. Here are our picks of the week. Check it out!
The all-new third generation Audi TT has made its world premiere along with its more powerful TTS brother earlier today at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new sports coupe is an evolution of the 2014 Audi TT with inspiration from the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept and the original TT, while having the same basic shape.
Naza Euro Motors has finally taken the lid off its 2014 Citroen DS3 in Malaysia, where the car is currently on display at the Bangsar Shopping Center’s concourse area. The two-door French supermini enters our local market with a 1.6-litre VTi engine, a four-speed automatic transmission, a bag brimmed with equipment, and it’s all yours for RM117,888 (OTR without insurance)
With a goal of achieving an annual sales target of 600 units this year, and 1,000 units annually in three years’ time, Naza Euro Motors have big plans to grow the Citroën brand in Malaysia. Speaking at the launch of the new 2014 Citroën DS3in Kuala Lumpur, Naza Euro Motors COO, Datuk Samson Anand George says that the brand will introduce the seven-seater Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV by the end of this year.
The four-stroke internal-combustion petrol engine is 130-years-old this year, having been invented by Edward Butler in 1884. It was a 600cc flat-twin four-stroke engine that produced between 5hp to 8hp. Since then, internal-combustion petrol engine technology has grown by leaps and bounds in comparison to what we have today.
If you’ve been lucky enough to get yourself on the waiting list for the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Edition 1, understand very clearly that I envy every bone in your body. As you’d expect, a car as special as this comes in only very limited units, and as far as we can tell, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has them all booked up.
