How do you keep the insatiable SUV market interested in your wares? By refining them, of course. Hyundai South Africa just showed us how it’s done…
Mahindra se nuutste sportsnuts, die XUV300
In die passasiersmotormark in Suid-Afrika wat tans maar traag is, is die segment vir die kleiner gesinsmotor die enigste een wat groei toon. Hierdie nuwe produk van Mahindra is duidelik vir die mark bedoel. Dit word die XUV300 (drie dubbel nul) genoem en pas mooi in tussen sy twee familielede, die klein KUV100 en die groter XUV500.
Oh dear, new year, old me. Despite my best efforts, one test car slipped through the 2018 review cracks and everyone gets an apology straight off the bat for my first story of the year. I’m sorry, Hyundai S.A. and dear readers, for only reviewing the Creta now.

Did you know that a host of kitesurfing speed records have been achieved in Namibia? That’s right, many have been set in the Walvis Bay and Lüderitz areas, and the fastest speed by a kitesurfer, as officially recognised by the world body for sailing, is 55,65 knots (that’s over 100 km/h!) set by Robert Douglas in Lüderitz.
Hyundai is busy refreshing its entire range, to save everyone some time they’re even doing it in pairs now with the Creta and Tucson.
Like last year, we asked you to vote for your favourites through our new website and social media pages but, unlike last year, y’all must’ve been so drunk that you couldn’t be bothered.
The awesome example
Recently I was involved in a discussion – or possibly an intervention – where I was accused of being too critical of new cars. I’ll save you my whining retorts but promised all participants that I can indeed be positive about deserving automobiles. And wouldn’t you know it, the Hyundai Creta is a perfect example.
On 23/24 February Galimoto Media checked into the Arabella Hotel & Spa, Kleinmond for what was to be the launch of the all-new Hyundai Creta. Promised to be an exciting two days and getting to know Hyundai’s new creation, we were given some alone time with the vehicles to formulate our opinions.
