Sprint Review: 2022 Mercedes-Benz C200 AMG Line / Edition 6
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Mercedes’ new C-Class made its appearance during the messy demise of COVID-19 so we never got a proper look at what’s changed…
The W206, one hit wonder or the best of both worlds?
Words and Images by
I had the privilege of having a look at the new C-Class a year before it made production, and already then I knew Mercedes-Benz was onto something. Every part of the prototypes told me that the engineers at Sindelfingen were out for mass produced perfection. After all, the 206 has something to prove to the world. Let me explain:
Launched: 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
C stands for Compact Class, yet this evergreen Mercedes-Benz sales champion tends to follow in its bigger siblings’ footsteps by introducing many innovations to the compact executive sedan market. NamWheels brings you some highlights of the new W206 model while recapping those of its ancestors…
Sprint Review: Mercedes-Benz C180

Launched: Alfa Romeo Giulia
Bellissima! We drive Alfa’s gorgeous new Giulia.
South Africans and Namibians have both had a long-lasting love affair with Alfa Romeo’s delectable Giulia. The passionate relationship (for Alfisti, at least) started 55 years ago when the original Giulia, the Tipo 105 Berlina, and its subsequent sub-types became the first Alfa model range to be built in South Africa in substantial numbers.
Tested: Mercedes-Benz C220d Cabriolet
A Diesel cabrio?
For today’s review I could tell you all sorts of things which nobody cares about. Horsepower, airbag count, none of these matters. Perhaps they would for another vehicle but not the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet. All you need to hear – because you already know it – is how achingly pretty it is.
Tested: Mercedes-Benz GLC300
The right ingredients
Mercedes-Benz has been a pioneering brand from day one of the car and it’s not often that this German outfit is caught napping. Perhaps they were dozing slightly when sales figures of medium-sized luxury SUV’s shot skywards; led by the BMW X3 and Audi’s Q5. Mercedes’ answer, the GLC, only arrived last year.
Top List: Boot Space
Ag no man. Your mother-in-law is coming along on holiday and the kids want to take ALL their toys and sports equipment along. Where are you going to fit all of this?
Perhaps you have already invested in a sizable trailer and decent roof-top box but your car simply can’t handle more luggage. Well, we at NamWheels love to help and have compiled a list of cars with at least 400L of luggage space. Big enough to put your skoonma in the boot.
