Tested: 2012 Hyundai Accent 1.6 GLS (A)

The better value

Picture the scene. You’re at a braai and the obligatory man huddle at the fire has turned its attention to the mandatory subject of cars. It’s your turn and a few years ago you would’ve faked an illness before admitting ownership of a Hyundai Accent, but today you may proudly do so.

Launched: Hyundai H1 Multicab

The split shuttle

Monday, 23 January 2012, Kuils River. The glamorous honours of our first launch report for 2012 go to the decidedly unglamorous Hyundai H1 Multicab. Still, I encourage you to read on as this vehicle is big on space, big on versatility and big on value for money.

Padtoets: Hyundai Elantra GLS Outo

Hyundai Elantra GLS Outo verander die speelveld

Dit voel soos nou-die-dag wat die Hyundai handelsmerk op die plaaslike toneel verskyn het met sy Accent en Elantra modelle. Van Windhoek tot Witbank het die Koreaanse vervaardiger kopers gelok wat waarskynlik éérs na die prys en dan daarna na die motor self gekyk het.Met die wegtrekslag het die verkope die hoogte ingeskiet en het die uitstekende diens wat die handelaars verskaf het, bygedra tot die suksesstorie.

Nog verder verfyn

Dit is ‘n gegewe feit dat Namibiers (en Suid-Afrikaners) oor die algemeen nou maar eenmaal gebore agternalopers is, maar darem in die figuurlike sin van die woord.  Dit kan gesien word oor die breë spektrum van haas elke aspek van hulle algemene lewenspatroon hetsy sy voorkeur kos, kuns, kleredrag, sport en, dan natuurlik, sy rygoed.

Bekendstelling: Nuwe Hyundai i10

Ideale stadsmotor, maar ook vir die langpad.

Verby is die dae waar jy met die koop van ‘n intreevlak motor met net die basiese tevrede moes wees. Die nuwe opgeknapte i10 stel nuwe standaarde vir klein motors teen ‘n bekostigbare prys. Die i10 spog met ‘n hele lys van standaard kenmerke wat mens onlangs net in duurder modelle aangetref het.

Tested: 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG

The excessive yacht

Pass the caviar and that black credit card; I’m still high from driving a car so superior and luxurious that only real Beluga and serious retail therapy will cure my withdrawal symptoms. The Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG is near the top of Merc’s price list and makes damn sure you (and others) know about it.

The big temptation

Many years ago our automotive landscape was slightly less crowded and infinitely less confusing. Big saloons were balanced with small hatchbacks and boxy Kombis stood alongside rustic 4×4’s. German, British and American cars were the order of the day and Japanese products were rudely pointed and laughed at.

Tested: 2012 Hyundai Elantra 1.8 GLS (A)

The smooth performer

This review may be a little pointless as (a) my boss already wrote a piece on this car, (b) I already published a launch report and (c) I was supposed to test something else; which never arrived. So after a month-long drought of test cars I was so grateful that I decided to write a sneaky review on the new Hyundai Elantra.

Bekendstelling: Hyundai Santa Fe 4×4

Hyundai Santa Fe 4×4 nou nóg beter

Dit is insiggewend dat die eerste Koreaanse Grand Prix (dit is nou in Suid-Korea – nie die kommunistiese noorde nie.) op Sondag, 24 Oktober plaasgevind het. Dit kan gesien word as ‘n teken van die groot vooruitgang wat die Koreaanse motorbedryf die afgelope paar jare gemaak het.
