I like a good sleeper. If you ask Google what a sleeper car is, you’ll get an answer involving disguised potential or unassuming performance. The new Hyundai Tucson N-Line is the exact opposite of a sleeper, although that doesn’t mean I dislike it…
A million bucks. Let’s just get that out of the way before I tell you more about this stunning blue Jaguar compact SUV…
Move aside “auto Boomer”
The auto industry is currently being infiltrated by negative remarks from two sides. On one side, we have the non-auto lovers; those who passionately believe that all vehicles are the same. On the other side of the spectrum, we have hardcore vehicle lovers, but who believes that the future of the industry seems bleak and without exciting prospects.
Somewhere between all those hideously expensive luxury SUV’s and the oh-so trendy compact crossovers lives a whole horde of bakkie-based rustic 4×4’s with seven seats. We tested the face-lifted Isuzu offering.
There you are, standing outside your local Volvo dealership after close of business and that stunning blue XC60 you had your heart set on is parked next to a cool grey V90 Cross Country. Dang it, which dotted line do you sign on?
Small crossover Jaguar, small diesel engine, small thirst. So is there anything about this Jag that isn’t tiny?
The perfect flaw
Anonymity can be a wonderful thing. As 2019 was drawing to a close, I reflected on some of the colourful cars we tested and decided to book something mundane for the holidays. You know, some large bakkie-based SUV with seven seats and a clattering diesel engine. Have you met the Isuzu mu-X yet?
‘Gemak en sport’ is beslis nie beste vriende nie, maar…
If you didn’t know it yet, I’m a complete sucker for weird car colour combos. You can shove your whites and blacks, I like pearlescent yellow and maroon metallic. So this grey Toyota RAV4 press car with its half-orange interior started off on a good foot… but how did it do after that?
