It’s a well-known fact that Volkswagen of South Africa built a modernized version of the original Golf (“Mark 1”) right up to the point where it couldn’t cope with safety and emissions standards. The Citi Golf lived from 1984 to 2009 as a youthful and affordable mode of transport in southern Africa. NamWheels gives you some details:
Do you bang the middle man?
(is jy bang vir die middelmannetjie?) So you live on a plaas but don’t have / want a 4×4. Here’s a list of affordable cars with high ground clearance that are not 4×4, SUV’s, AWD, Crossovers, Bakkies, LCV’s, etc.

One of the most popular automotive segments in the world and our country is the hot hatchback. You know the type. Medium-sized, two- or four-door runabouts minus a boot plus a whack of horsepower and go-faster bits. Today I’d like to introduce you to the latest arrival, Chevrolet’s Sonic RS.
Chevrolet Sonic Sedan
Wanneer daar oor ‘n Chevrolet of Ford voertuig gepraat, geskryf of bespiegel word sal dit altyd by die huidige laaste linie generasie Suid-Afrikaers nostalgiese herinneringe van toentertydse kinderjare oproep.
The unexpected fix
I’m a firm believer in karma and the turning of that proverbial wheel but am often flabbergasted at how quickly things come back around to nip you in the backside. No more than two weeks after I dismissed the Chevy Sonic as mediocre, its turbo-Diesel sibling rocked up at my house.

Namibia (and indeed, also South Africa) has a booming small car market thanks to often ridiculous pricing, steadily climbing oil prices and a recession that can’t decide if it’s done or wants another round. Some car manufacturers even have more than one model on offer and Chevrolet is no different. Now serving: the new Sonic.
