While our automotive market surges ahead with downsizing and/or electrification, there are a few vehicles which either didn’t get the memo yet, or they’re desperately waiting for a newer version to take the baton. And with both their names promising dynamism, how could we not compare these two oddball SUV’s?
One of our least-favourite cars in 2021 now comes with the dreaded CVT ‘box of many revs, no gears and plenty whining. Can it get any worse?
One shared platform, two different cars: the Magnite and Kiger are practically siblings but their characters are like chalk and cheese. Read on to find out which one’s a powdery mess while the other one is a creamy delight…
From best to worst
Two weeks and two different cars with two completely polar opposite outcomes. In a way, I am quite happy as to how it played out. Let me explain…
Times are tough, but Renault is tougher. While other car makers are scrambling to build spacious and versatile seven-seaters around the 300k mark, this half-Indian effort manages to chop almost a hundred grand off that price!
Die veelsydige en bekostigbare Renault Duster is weereens in ons oprit, maar na vele toetse met die einste model oor die vorige paar jare (dit sluit selfs ‘n toer na Lüderitz in) vra ons onsself die vraag af: “Wat maak hierdie Duster juis anders?”
Roaming our cities with the Renault Stepway Plus
Judging by Renault’s latest design of the Kwid Ultra, we are surely in for a real treat when the new Sandero Stepway makes landfall somewhere in 2021. The French manufacturer has never shied away from interesting designs and relatively good value for money for its showroom cars.
By now it should be a well-known fact that the Renault Duster was actually born as a Romanian Dacia budget SUV. This second generation is more polished as I found out during my time with a Techroad model.
