The bigger brother to the HR-V could arrive here in the second half of the year, but Kah Motor was unable to confirm this. The new CR-V appears to be more athletic and has the horsepower to support the impression, thanks to a turbocharged 1.5-litre 4-cylinder rated at 190bhp. The chassis and suspension are said to provide sharper handling and greater refinement. Honda claims the CR-V’s cabin raises the bar in its class for legroom, comfort, utility and premium amenities.

Hyundai’s third-generation “Korean Golf” has been pencilled in for a Singapore debut in the second half. The value-packed hatchback will be smartphone-ready (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and wireless charging) and equipped with state-of-the-art safety devices, but not everything will be standard equipment. The engine lineup includes a turbocharged 1.4-litre 4-cylinder with 140bhp and a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The next hip Jeep after the teeny Renegade (which arrived in the Chang Charn Road dealership recently) will be the larger, tougher and more practical Compass. Expected to arrive in the 4th quarter, the latest Compass is a global model with a wide choice of fuel-efficient drivetrains, configurations and factory-fitted options. Technical highlights include an intelligent 4×4 system and the segment’s biggest full-colour LED instrument cluster.
