Torque (Singapore) - - BUY -

$142,188 FROM ON THE ROAD Fol­low­ing an­other facelift, this mid-size Ja­panese saloon has be­come even more ad­vanced and ef­fi­cient than the older model. New equip­ment in­cludes a dig­i­tal speedome­ter, 360-de­gree cam­era sys­tem and an eight-inch in­fo­tain­ment dis­play. The big­gest up­date, how­ever, is un­der the bon­net. The nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 2.5-litre en­gine now has a cylin­der de­ac­ti­va­tion fea­ture, which shuts off two of the four cylin­ders dur­ing light-load con­di­tions. This sup­pos­edly im­proves fuel econ­omy by about 20 per­cent when driv­ing at a con­stant 40km/h, and by about 5 per­cent when driv­ing at a steady 80km/h. RI­VAL: VOLK­SWA­GEN PAS­SAT
