The Efficient & Spacious C300

Cruise Control returns this week with a look ahead to a couple of upcoming launches by Perodua and Toyota respectively, a quick chat with the CEO of Volvo, complete with a test drive of a top-of-the-range Mercedes Benz C Class.

Local car makers Perodua are sprucing up 2014's Perodua Axia, breathing new life into the popular compact car with an all-new platform and design. Bookings are already open, so check your local Perodua showrooms to have a look. Toyota are also adding another SUV to their already impressive fleet, welcoming an upgraded version of the RAV4, this time kitted with the GR Sport badge to inject more fun to the four-wheel-drive machine.

We also get an update on Volvo's plans for the near future, as Daniel visited the Swedish giants head office in Stockholm for a chat with its CEO, Jim Rowan. We round off this episode with our automotive specialist's glowing review of the Mercedes-Benz C300 AMG Line.
