An Amarok, CX-5, Ranger and Qashqai walk into a bar. Stop me if you’ve heard the one about special black editions…
As a previous owner and current aficionado of the old Land Rover Defender, I’m going to attempt something daring and hopefully unique: a full review of this new one without mentioning the old dear…
Special Editions. In the world of Japanese pick-ups and that British island in the North Atlantic, a special edition has become its very own antithesis. They’re so common that you’ll be hard pressed to find a standard model… so why did Mazda decide to plaster the word “Carbon” over this CX-5?
The gift horse
I’m sure you’ve heard of the adage that one shouldn’t criticise a gift. Well, I shall try to be as diplomatic as possible while still giving you an objective opinion of this double-cab bakkie which Mahindra graciously lent us over the Festive Season.
The flowing beauty
In the eye of the beholder. Beauty can be a fickle, fleeting and quite subjective matter but occasionally it can also be universal. This most certainly applies to the Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupé I tested recently because everyone – every single observer I talked to – noted how pretty it looked.
