How rainy will the month of November be? I don’t know. What I do know is that American rock band Guns N’ Roses will be performing in Singapore for the first time on Feb 25 next year, the only Southeast Asian stop on the band’s Not In This Lifetime concert tour. GNR rocking SGP in my lifetime, wow. So, please allow me to recall a few of the band’s hits and albums as I highlight some of the stories in this issue. Welcome to the jungle, SUVs – Nissan Qashqai, Suzuki Vitara, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3 on pg 38-49; Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage on pg 52-55. Take me down to the paradise city cars – Audi RS3 Sportback and Mercedes-AMG A45 on pg 56-63. Don’t cry if the racy German hatchbacks are too expensive for you, because we also have the far more affordable and still pretty sporty Infiniti Q30 on pg 72-79. Use your illusion on pg 82-84, where we determine the differences between the VW Touran and VW Sportsvan. Thanks for your patience. You can really start reading this magazine now.
