Launch report: 2018 Suzuki Jimny

New Jimny surpasses expectation

Twenty years since the third generation of the much-loved Suzuki Jimny was launched globally, the small 4×4 made quite a stir in the market.

Launch Report: Hyundai i20 Facelift

Hot on the heels of the Grand i10 refresh, its bigger brother i20 just received an injection of youth.

How do you improve on perfection? While it may seem odd to use that term for the report of a Hyundai i20 refresh, I struggled to see where (or why) they even bothered. The outgoing model only arrived 2,5 years ago and in my humble opinion, it still looked perfectly modern while offering a great value proposition.
