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.

Padtoets: 2018 Honda Civic Type R

‘n Geruime tydjie terug het ons die splinternuwe Honda Type-R om die Dezzi resies baan in Kwazulu-Natal geneem. Hierdie baan is spesifiek gekies om die uitblinker-kwaliteite van die nuwe Type-R ten toon te stel. Dis is in lang en kort draaie waar hierdie voorwiel aangedrewe absoluut fenominaal is. Dié keer het ons die Type-R gekry om dit vir ‘n week as ‘n “familie” en “werks” voertuig te gebruik.

Gedurende hierdie week het ons iets beleef soos nog nooit vantevore…

The zany looks

A few weeks ago I was on my way to Swakop when I was struck by an epiphany – we should all swap and share our cars. What quickly escalated into a mega-Uber and car thief’s delight in my head had started as a reaction to seeing the same boring vehicles all day long. Fortuner, Fortuner, Polo, Hilux, Fortuner…

Top 5: Cars of the Year 2016

So here’s something different. Each year we list our favourite new cars which were launched over the last 12 months but this time around, instead of us telling you which ones we liked, our Facebook page invited YOU to vote your favourite new ride of 2016.

The list of candidates was chosen from the launches we attended or vehicles we thought were brilliant newcomers and worthy of being included in this line-up.

The striking sedan

Have you noticed how some cars are starting to look the same? Not to name and shame, I can think of a few luxury marques whose range can only be deciphered by a veteran salesperson or the designer himself. Happily, Honda didn’t get that idea (yet), especially with their new Civic sedan.

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.

The big power

The motoring industry often develops its own names for certain genres of automobiles. Softroaders, MPV’s, Sports Sedans all denominate a category of car but none is more revered than the fabled Hot Hatch. After spending a week with Honda’s new Civic Type-R, I’d like to propose a rethink of that classification.

Honda se nuwe Blits!

In hierdie tye van besparing en kommer oor skadelike gasse kan mens wonder of daar nog ‘n aanvraag is vir opgewarmde sportiewe luikrugmodelle wat gebou is vir spoed eerder as ekonomie. Maar as jy na die lys van aanbiedings op die mark kyk is daar nogal heelwat. Die bekendste is seker Volkswagen se Golf GTI wat al lank met ons is. Dan is daar ook die Opel Astra OPC en die Renault Megane RS en later in 2016 kom die Ford Focus ST.
