I’ve just returned from an exciting Suzuki launch at Redstar Raceway in eastern Gauteng. This tyre-shredding day celebrated the arrival of the Japanese brand’s “Boosterjet” turbocharger technology in the agile Swift Sport and popular Vitara models.
Hyundai South Africa appears to be a company with its finger on the pulse, reacting to market demands with the sort of speed and innovation we last saw in the late 80’s. While most of its rivals are hamstringed by dreary corporate rules these days, Hyundai still gets to play a little and produce bespoke cars like this Tucson Sport.
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.
Mahindra se nuutste sportsnuts, die XUV300
In die passasiersmotormark in Suid-Afrika wat tans maar traag is, is die segment vir die kleiner gesinsmotor die enigste een wat groei toon. Hierdie nuwe produk van Mahindra is duidelik vir die mark bedoel. Dit word die XUV300 (drie dubbel nul) genoem en pas mooi in tussen sy twee familielede, die klein KUV100 en die groter XUV500.
Die “Spirit of Amarok Media Challenge” is in April 2019 naby Nelspruit gehou met 30 motor joernaliste wat deelgeneem het. Die “Spirit of Africa” en “Spirit of Amarok” staan onder die leiding van die legendariese Suid-Afrikaanse renjaer, Sarel van Merwe.

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.
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.

When a manufacturer of off road tires use slogans like “Built through experience “ or “Earned on the trail” then there must be trust, credibility and confidence when offering it to the end users.

Perky Kona – New Hyundai makes a bold statement
Did you know that a host of kitesurfing speed records have been achieved in Namibia? That’s right, many have been set in the Walvis Bay and Lüderitz areas, and the fastest speed by a kitesurfer, as officially recognised by the world body for sailing, is 55,65 knots (that’s over 100 km/h!) set by Robert Douglas in Lüderitz.
