While luxury sedan sales are heading south, there’s still a market for affordable compact sedans. Honda just pressed the refresh button of theirs.
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.
Oorambisie vir Honda
Honda het onlangs die nuwe Civic Type R (FK8) tesame met die nuwe Jazz 1.5 Sport (voorheen bekend as die Dynamic) by die Dezzi resies baan in Durban geloods. Terwyl die Civic Type R ons asems weggeslaan het met ‘n kombinasie van uitstekende ingeneurswese en geweldige pret, het die Honda Jazz Sport ons met ‘n effense kopkrap-situasie gelos.
‘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 successful Jazz brand continues with new Sport
The highly popular Honda Jazz brand will once again move forward with the introduction of a new Sport model. Taking the Jazz on a 180km roadtrip along the South-African east coast, we tested the abilities of the Jazz on the road, as well as the wet skid pan of Dezzi Raceway.
Known for its refinement, the Honda CR-V range has just been improved even further!
First launched in 1995, the Honda CR-V captured the global market as a trend-setter in the compact SUV segment. Globally, it has since been sold 9 million times in 150 countries, so this latest model has a lot to live up to.

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…
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.
The trendy box
In today’s day and age, cars have become so much more than just a means of transport. Ego extension, lifestyle tool, branding exercise, family friend – there are many careers a new automobile could get thrown into. As long as it’s not boring, because – you know – everybody has to express their individuality.
