Unlike some, I didn’t have a strong connection with Honda’s last Civic Type R hatch, or even a desire to ever drive one, primarily because of the outrageously-styled body kit that inflicted it with an overtly cartoonish profile.

That was early 2018, before I ended up in the driver’s seat of a Championship White FK8 Type R and proceeded to systematically take apart a number of the more challenging sections in the Victorian high country in less than ideal conditions – it was a bit damp and a bit sketchy.

Just to make sure we didn’t drink too much of Honda’s Kool-Aid, we brought along two of its toughest rivals; the Ford Focus RS and Renault Megane R.S.

Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) telah mengumumkan pihaknya bekerjasama dengan Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA) untuk membina tanjakan (ramp) khas di Lebuhraya Kemuning-Shah Alam (LKSA). Ia adalah untuk kegunaan penduduk sekitar khususnya di Taman Sri Muda mengalihkan kenderaan sebelum ditenggelami banjir selain mempercepat kerja-kerja menyelamat mangsa bencana itu.

MBSA berkata, pelan tindakan banjir itu adalah hasil daripada sesi dialog yang diadakan pihaknya bersama dengan penduduk Taman Sri Muda yang menceritakan keadaan mereka yang tidak dapat menyelamatkan kenderaan masing-masing ketika peristiwa banjir besar tahun lepas.

“Sebelum ini, apabila amaran banjir diberikan, penduduk memang meletakkan kenderaan mereka di atas lebuh raya itu dengan bantuan peronda LKSA. Tapi perjalanannya agak jauh kerana mereka perlu keluar

Why wait months for a new car when a mobility service will grant you access to one in just minutes? By Karim Kaddoura

Cities are changing at a pace never seen before, and in the last few years, the idea of car-free areas has been gaining traction. From London’s ULEZ and Ghent’s ‘Circulatieplan’ to Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone and Brussel’s Le Pietonnier, city planners around the world are embarking on large-scale, dynamic social experiments. These are just part of a line of action by political leaders across the UK and Europe to discourage the use of personal cars within cities in the move away from a 20th century, petroleum-based world. But what about when it comes to the individual, to the general public—what do their changing attitudes mean when it comes to private car ownership?

Consider younger generations—Millennials and Gen Z. Growing up in a world of next day delivery,
