Sprint Review: Honda Civic Type R   

One crazy car with wings ‘n fins, lots of information in short paragraphs. 

What you need to know: The old Type R is dead, long live the new Type R! When Honda shocked the world with crazy turbo power in their new hot Civic, they did so (locally) with the spaceship hatchback body. Now though, for reasons I’m not sure about, they’ve killed that model off in favour of this sedan / fastback car.

The strange union

Renault is a strange old brand. It started just a few months shy of the year 1900 and has always danced to its own tune. They’re reasonably big on motorsport but never bothered much with luxury cars. At some point they aced all EuroNCAP crash tests but still focused on affordable transport for the masses; like this Sandero Stepway.

Padtoets: 2018 Toyota Prado Land Cruiser VX-L

Junie 2018 was ‘n uitstekende maand vir Toyota, met dié vervaardiger wat kop-en-skouers uitstaan bo enige ander vervaardiger in terme van verkope. Hierdie is wel  te danke aan die Fortuner en Hilux se goeie verkoopsyfers, maar ook die van die veel luukser Prado reeks.

Schnellbericht: 2018 Mercedes-Benz X250d

Ein heiß-erwarteter Bakkie, viele Details in kurzen Absätzen. 

Was Sie wissen sollten: Mercedes ist scheinbar am rückwärtsrudern und Notfall-Treffen wegen der neuen X-Klasse. Egal was sie tun, egal was irgendjemand sagt oder schreibt, alle Menschen erwähnen nur, daß sie auf einem Nissan basiert. Navara mit Mascara. Und nichts, nichts anderes zählt.

Padtoets: 2018 Suzuki 1.2 GL

Die goedkoop wenner

Onlangs genooi na die nuwe Suzuki Swift se bekendstelling in Durban, was ons aangenaam verras met die nuwe Suzuki Swift. Steeds bekend as een van die voorlopers in die goedkoper voertuig mark, bied die Swift nou meer teen ‘n beter prys. Met ‘n prys onder die R190 000 merk, is die Swift ‘n goeie alternatief vir alle ouderdoms groepe.
