Hey, you know what? We don’t have enough compact SUV crossover thingies in our market, we need more compact SUV crossover vehicles. Inhale, feel the sarcasm, exhale. Hyundai is all-too-happy to assist us…
New Duster here to upset market.
Launched in October 2018, the 2WD Renault Duster saw a completely new version of the first iconic Duster generation (2012). We already had the chance to test this and quite liked the small SUV. Now, Renault has just launched the new 4WD version, capable of taking on the roads less traveled.
A few weeks ago I tested an A200 AMG Line and was pleasantly surprised by its youthful charms. Now it’s the turn of its bigger brother A250 with more power but fewer toys…
Looking for a small seven-seater car, with ample leg- and head room, to expand your travel business or to zip along the Garden Route with the family? Well, Suzuki has just launched their solution to this and it is not going to cost you an arm or a leg.
Did you know that Hyundai now has four SUV’s in the local market? The funky Kona and sensible Creta cater for the compact segment (and wallet) while their brand-new seven-seater Santa Fe wears the brand’s crown. But the one which started it all – at least locally – is this accomplished Tucson.
Nuwe kar, minder kopsere
Die motor industrie is tans by ‘n geweldige keerpunt. Nie net raak enjins kleiner nie, maar verkies vele vervaardigers om ander alternatiewe tot brandstof te vind. Hierdie innoverende tegnologiese ontwikkelinge het geweldige voordele, dog ook nadele. So waar staan die nuwe Mazda 3 in hierdie opsig?
The new wave
Good news, dear reader. Everything is back to normal in one part of my automotive imagination. After years of turbo-diesel automatics, yodeling CVT’s and GreenDream gobbledygook, my overall impression of Honda has been yanked perilously close to its original state by this new 2018 Amaze 1.2 Comfort.
The better respect
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Renault lent us their (current) top-of-the-line Duster to showcase the many improvements its recent update brought about.

Since the dawn of the 19th century, motorsport has always existed due to two key factors. Through the decades, these factors have either worked together very closely and successfully or either against one another, proving unsustainable for the sport. These two factors speak to the needs of the spectators as well as the big manufacturers (brands). The following article will analyse the movement of the motorsport world into different directions, perhaps towards an imbalance between the two factors.
The Isuzu KB bakkie range is dead, long live the new D-Max series! (it’s basically the same…)
What you need to know: Although yours truly isn’t the biggest bakkie fan, someone thought it funny to bring us a whole string of Isuzu pick-ups to test. Starting with KB250 double cabs over “X Rider” 4×2 and 4×4 models, this D-Max denotes the new-and-improved product onslaught from the Japanese commercial vehicle manufacturer.
