COVET: Extended luxury

Rolls-Royce has given the chauffeur-driven buyer more to love (6.7 inches, to be exact) with the debut of the Ghost Extended Wheelbase. The extra space is added to the rear seat, where knee room doubles compared with the standard Ghost.

Celebrate in classic style

Those who watched last month's British royal wedding will have seen Prince William and Catherine Middleton drive around in style.

Santa Fe is in a class of its own

A glance at the specification sheet for the revamped Hyundai Santa Fe shows it is well-equipped, with seven seats, four-wheel drive, 18-inch alloys, five-star NCAP safety rating, six-speed automatic transmission, eight air bags, dual-zone climate control, a sunroof and a five-year warranty. That's a lot of SUV for HK$268,000, but is it as good as it looks on paper?
