Interview: Tarek ElMoukachar, Dubai PR Expert

Less than ten years ago, while I was working for a tech publication, I received an email from a new PR guy who was at that time representing Microsoft Xbox. To my astonishment, and as I discovered later on after meeting him face to face and running through thorough interrogations by yours truly, he knew a lot about videogames, and he was a hardcore gamer not a fake one.

2016 Renault Captur Proud Owner Review

I was persuaded by the wife to buy her a new car which should be a crossover but I had to put my foot down and say yes dear. Once I was persuaded with a few tears (and threats), we began short-listing cars based on budget, features, looks, safety, etc. and by researching online forums, manufacturers websites, pre-owned car reviews and such. The criteria we gave highest ratings were:

1. Fuel; economy because I’m a casual tree hugger
2. Safety; because we want to live a little longer
3. Budget; because that holiday in Switzerland
4. Looks; because the status quo
5. Luxury; Features for passengers other than us

After all, you can compare engines just by looking at horsepower and torque output. Yet car buyers should think about the drivetrain before they set foot in a showroom.

The type of drivetrain that suits their needs may not suit the vehicle they plan to buy. If you walk into a dealership with all-wheel drive on your mind, they will be glad to sell you this expensive option. The question is: do you need it?
