Padtoets: Nissan NP300 2.5D High D/C 4×4

‘n Voertuig wat die evolusie van die bakkie segment bewys!

Die bakkie of “pickup” / “ute” mark, soos vele dit ken, is besig om na die meer eksklusiewe mark te beweeg. Die bakkie word nie meer gesien as net ‘n werks-esel nie, maar eerder ‘n voertuig wat harde werk deur die week kan doen en gemaklik die familie oor die naweek kan vervoer. Dit is om hierdie rede dat elke tweede vervaardiger deesdae hul eie weergawe probeer bou om ‘n stukkie van hierdie gewilde mark beet te kry.

Tested: 2018 Suzuki Jimny GLX AllGrip

The iconic spiel

Ford Mustang, Ferrari F40, Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. All of these are legends in their own right and will get you plenty of attention but if you need a little more – right now I guarantee it – just get yourself the brand-new Suzuki Jimny. Our test car’s black stickers on crazy lumo-green-yellow paint can probably help as well.

Tested: Nissan NP300 Hardbody 2.5 TDi D/C 4×4

One star. ONE! Sheesh, can you believe the so-called nerve of these so-called people? First they sell us some completely outdated relic from the late nineties and now we find out that it only gets one of five brownie points for some modern crash test rating. This is an outrage. Outrage, I tell you!

Padtoets: 2018 Ford Fiesta 1.0 Titanium

Het Ford die B-segment oorwin?

Getoets aan die einde van 2018, is die Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi Trend gekies as Galimoto Media en NamWheels se tweede “mees verbeterde” kar van die jaar. Uitmuntende kwaliteit, genoeg spasie, goeie padhouvermoe en ‘n algehele brandstof-verbruik van 4.1 liter per 100 km (ons beste nog), kon ons geensins anders laat kies nie.
