Mazda Southern Africa recently invited us to sample their newest and most important vehicle for 2019 – the seventh generation Mazda3. NamWheels brings you all the details of this oven-fresh Japanese hatchback and sedan combo.
That’s it, I’ve had it. Enough! Enough already with this stupid SUV malarkey, it’s gotten completely out of control. Who would’ve ever thought that Jaguar (and Bentley, Maserati, Porsche, Lambo, etc., etc.) will get in on the action and what the hell is the meaning of E, F and I Pace?
When Hyundai S.A. gave us another turn in their Kona 1.0T Executive, we threw the keys at our lady journo and she came back with this report…
A new car, lots of information in short paragraphs.
What you need to know: We actually tested this model before, about a year ago and in exactly the same colour. Back then I described its heavy automated roof (plus 160kg) and automatic box-o-cogs as giant flies in the otherwise enjoyable soup of MX-5 deliciousness. Has anything changed?
Het jy R 1,3 miljoen in die sak, wat brand om ‘n sportiewe Audi te koop? Dan is jy beslis op die regte plek. Ons het pas die Duitse vervaardiger se twee blits familie-voertuie getoets en kan ‘n uitstekende antwoord gee.
The gentle progress
Ahh, the carefree days of early adulthood. My memories include Brollocks, Terrace, Bohemia, Mavericks and other Stellenbosch places but are dominated by the cars I came into contact with back then. One of them was a then-new Mercedes C180 and almost 20 years later I finally got a chance to test one of its direct descendants in earnest.
Corolla of Auris?
Die 12-jaar oue “Auris” naam is dood… Wel, net die naam.
Sitting atop the Golf family tree and also jostling for position in the uber-hot hatch category, we took a quick spin in this Vrr-Phah monster to see what’s new for 2018/19.
The comfort zone
I’m writing a book. Like every author before me, I think the world is just waiting to hear my amusing short stories entitled “The Wrong Car”. These detail the many memorable trips I’ve made with cars which were way out of their comfort zone… which happily doesn’t apply to my recent excursion to southern Namibia with this 4WD Duster.
