Langtermyntoets: 2018 Honda Amaze 1.2 Comfort Handrat

Die naam sê alles.

Deesdae is daar vele vervaardigers wat wonderlike name aan nuwe voertuie gee. Name wat maklik oor die tong rol en ook dalk ‘n wenk mag gee oor hoe wonderlik en fantasties die nuwe voertuig is.

The new elephant

Cars can be so boring. In our hectic modern lifestyles, where automobiles have simply become a mundane means of traffic-jam-infested transport, it breaks my heart to see hordes of lofty 4×4’s and bland hatchbacks. Why? They simply don’t make my soul sing like a powder blue Volvo XC40 with white wheels.
