This time, it’s personal

Under intense pressure from the SUV competition, the MPV segment is struggling to retain its fair share of the market. First introduced in 2005, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class has since sold 1.5 million units and the third generation of this sport compact tourer is designed to continue to buck the trend. The designers’ brief was to make the new B-Class stand out visually from the world of minivans. That brief was accepted and executed, with the long wheelbase with short overhangs, slightly lowered roof line and larger, 16- to 19-inch wheels contributing towards more dynamic proportions. The relatively squat, progressive front-end with flowing transition from bonnet to A‑pillar and on to the windscreen, along with the muscular shoulder of the body, underlines the sporty overall look. At the back, the width of the vehicle is accentuated by two-part lamps, reflectors integrated in the bumper and a distinctive black bumper bottom section with diffuser look and chrome trim strip. The large roof spoiler, along with high-gloss black spoilers at the sides of the rear window, makes for improved aerodynamics while ensuring a sporty appearance. The improved seat geometry and lower belt line...

Sometimes looking for the ideal in life is quite a difficult task. We’re constantly searching for the ideal restaurant, the ideal home and, of course, the ideal car. Like all the luxuries in life, the ideal way to com-mute is sometimes out of reach – but probably, not any longer.  The ideal car is modern. It’s equipped with all the latest technology where personalisation is real and comfort is the ultimate deciding factor. The ideal car is also quite the looker, streamlined curves, flashy lights and a sweet set of rims to carry you along the way. The ideal car is environmentally friendly, with a silent smart engine that’s totally electric and guilt free. It’s also decked out with state-of-the-art smart media where calls, a navigation system and Blue-tooth pairing are easily set up.  Sounds too good to be true, right? And if it is true, it’s possibly out of your price range. Well, why own a car when you can use the GoTo cars, present at various locations?  The €8 million initiative, introduced by GoTo Malta last year and run in collaboration with Transport Malta, consists of various electric car charging sta-tions installed across Malta, servicing a fleet of 150 Renault Zoe...

It came as no surprise that, among the impressive collection of exotic cars one finds on our island, we also have a Bentley Bentayga. When I bumped into an old friend who told me he had recently acquired one, I very willingly accepted his kind offer to take it out for a spin. The Bentley Bentayga combines unparalleled luxury with effortless performance and everyday usability. When it was launched in September 2015, with an all-new W12 powertrain, Bentley claimed that it was the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world. The Bentayga offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases innovative technology features. Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, the UK, the Bentayga’s styling is pure Bentley. Sculptural with an elegant, timeless execution, it balances athleticism with confidence. From the four round LED headlamps and large matrix grille, to the distinctive power line and muscular haunches, the Bentley DNA is apparent throughout. The Bentayga boasts the world’s finest automotive cabin, with unrivalled levels of precision. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – is the...
