V for versatility
Many people aspire to own a vehicle that bears the three-pointed star. Mercedes- Benz has long been known to produce some of the finest luxury limousines, sports cars and utility vehicles, all of which have won the hearts and minds of customers with ease. Yet it seems to be less known for its MPV.

The Bentley way
Judging by the observation that two of the world's most recognized premium car brands are perennially among the most popular brands in the territory, it is hard to counter the argument that the people of Hong Kong have developed a taste for expensive cars.

Go with the flow
A compact crossover suv, the new Hyundai Tucson is characterized by a modern and sleek design that is likely to appeal to the generation who would not wish to be seen driving the same marque of cars as their parents.

Diesel brawn
Shown to the public last weekend at Sun Yuen Long Center atop Yuen Long station and Light Rail Terminus in the New Territories, the Mini Cooper SD is the first officially imported diesel- powered Mini in Hong Kong.

C you soon
The new mercedes-benz glc is a premium mid-size SUV set to expand the appeal of the Pointed Star to a market niche that has until now been untapped by the brand locally.

Breathtaking
The new ferrari 488 GTB may prove to be the first mid-engine V8 model in recent memory from the Italian automaker that divides opinion among aficionados of the Prancing Horse at the time of launch.

Family first
The BMW 2-Series Gran Tourer is the first seven-seat front-wheel-drive vehicle that brings the brand to previously uncharted territory.

Room to roam
The Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan was recently introduced into the Hong Kong market, targeting the younger generation with an active lifestyle by offering a more spacious and flexible cabin compared with the standard Golf.

Icon refreshed
At the harborfront next to City Hall in Central, Audi Hong Kong unveiled the third-generation all-new TT. The partly open-air exhibition ran for three days from last Friday to Sunday. The first night was characterized mostly by clear sky and a gentle sea breeze.

Golfing green
The new Volkswagen e-Golf, priced at HK$369,880, is one of the latest pure electric vehicles to be introduced in the local market. Hong Kong is in fact Asia's first market launch for the electric-only hatchback with a quoted maximum range of 190 kilometers.
