Why is it always the poor Volvos we compare to other vehicles? We at NamWheels believe that they offer such refreshing alternatives to those regular market dominators that direct comparisons are absolutely necessary.
Junie 2018 was ‘n uitstekende maand vir Toyota, met dié vervaardiger wat kop-en-skouers uitstaan bo enige ander vervaardiger in terme van verkope. Hierdie is wel te danke aan die Fortuner en Hilux se goeie verkoopsyfers, maar ook die van die veel luukser Prado reeks.
Our keen sense of eyesight informs us on a daily basis that some of y’all don’t know (or remember) what a traffic light is for. Here is a quick refresher course for everyone’s benefit:
The simple grouch
This review should be one of the easiest and shortest texts I have ever composed but the vehicle in question evokes such vastly differing emotions (also for yours truly) that it threatens to bloat my report into novel proportions. You see, I’ve just spent a week driving Land Rover’s Defender 110 Heritage Edition.
So it’s finally holiday time and you’re off to the coast with your boat to visit the in-laws. Or perhaps your daughter got a new horse for Christmas? In both cases you have our sympathy.
Jokes aside though, here’s our little list of cars that can tow big loads, arranged by number of models and total weight. Please note that we based this list on manufacturer’s figures and advise that you confirm any data with your local retailer.
The wake-up call
Competition is healthy. There’s nothing like feeling the warm breath of rival products on the back of your neck to drive excellence and innovation of products. Although our market is pretty much sorted for luxury compact SUV’s, Lexus just decided to give all other makers a wake-up call with their new NX range.
The thumping brute
Some of my earliest childhood memories take place on gran’s farm near Dordabis. The smell of furniture polish in the gigantic house, a thriving herb garden out front, the monotonous beat of a Lister engine and a powder blue Toyota Land-Cruiser FJ40 pick-up parked next to the second barn.
The farm implement
The more cars I review, the more obsessed I become with their purpose. What were they built for? Are they any good at it? This inevitably leads to a few more questions. Who buys such a car? And are they using it as intended? This, as I’ve explained before, makes me appreciate cars like the Toyota Land-Cruiser 79.
2014 se nuwe Ontspannings- en Woestynwa
Met die skryf van hierdie artikel oor die nuwe Toyota Prado, is die plaaslik vervaardigde Hilux bakkies op die punt om die stryd in die Dakar tydren in Suid-Amerika aan te sê. Nodeloos om te sê, almal van ons hou duimvas vir die jaers en navigators wat ons in die verlede al soveel keer die kans gegee het om trots te voel!
Lang naam vir lekker ry op die langpad!
Iewers tussen my lêers is daar ‘n foto van twee Japannese wat met ‘n Mitsubishi Jeep in die vroeë Sestigs van Japan af na Engeland gery het om ‘n Formule Een Grand Prix vir Japan te propageer.
