D’you know what really irritates me? Sheepish behaviour. Add some overly common attributes to the mix and I lose interest so quickly that I actually consider growing a man-bun and wearing flannel shirts. And what’s the automotive epitome of sheepish solidarity? A white Toyota. Uh-oh…
One of the first official press cars I ever received was a jet black Renault Koleos. Back then I was in awe of this new ride and our market wasn’t bulging with SUV’s yet. Let’s see what this second generation is like, shall we?
Corolla of Auris?
Die 12-jaar oue “Auris” naam is dood… Wel, net die naam.
Honda Motor Southern Africa has announced a series of improvements and upgrades to its advanced and dynamic Honda Civic range.
What was once a laughable trickle became a sizable stream, then a raging river before morphing into a fully-blown tsunami with no discernible end: the onslaught of compact SUV’s. Most vehicle manufacturers now have more Mommy 4×4’s than any other vehicle on their disjointed websites… and Mitsubishi is no exception.

Butch presence and new gadgets – we test the updated Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Right, so you live in Suburbia, have a couple of kids and lead an active lifestyle. Where before a “Kombi”, some station wagon or 4×4 double-cab may have done the trick, your next automotive purchase must tick all those boxes.

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…
