Nuwe kar, minder kopsere 

Die motor industrie is tans by ‘n geweldige keerpunt. Nie net raak enjins kleiner nie, maar verkies vele vervaardigers om ander alternatiewe tot brandstof te vind.

Sprint Review: Mazda MX-5 RF  

A new car, lots of information in short paragraphs

What you need to know: The Mazda MX-5 is dead, long live the Mazda MX-5! Where before you could buy the manual soft-top, manual gearbox roadster, Mazda S.A. decided to ditch that in favour of this new electric “targa” hard-top, automatic RF model.
