Another day, another compact crossover. Audi figuratively stuck their second-gen Q3 into a press, squeezed it into a hatchback, pardon, coupé, pardon, Sportback shape and charges you extra for the loss in practicality.
Come the end of 2019, Audi Southern-Africa announced that it would be launching some two dozen cars into the market over the next two years. Whilst this did not materialise in 2020, Audi is ready to charge the market with its sports brand, Rennsport.
Het jy R 1,3 miljoen in die sak, wat brand om ‘n sportiewe Audi te koop? Dan is jy beslis op die regte plek. Ons het pas die Duitse vervaardiger se twee blits familie-voertuie getoets en kan ‘n uitstekende antwoord gee.
The favourite things
Put your money where your mouth is. Go on, we all chat and discuss our favourite things, dreaming about A or recommending B to a friendly neighbor but how often do we take the plunge ourselves? I’m more than happy to lead by example and hereby proclaim that I would gladly buy an Audi A5 Coupé.
Ag no man. Your mother-in-law is coming along on holiday and the kids want to take ALL their toys and sports equipment along. Where are you going to fit all of this?
Perhaps you have already invested in a sizable trailer and decent roof-top box but your car simply can’t handle more luggage. Well, we at NamWheels love to help and have compiled a list of cars with at least 400L of luggage space. Big enough to put your skoonma in the boot.
Let us guess. You are the kind of person who can identify most cars by their sound. You have seen every episode of Top Gear. You enjoy the smell of freshly-burned rubber. Petrol attendants start dancing when they see you coming and the local tyre retailer knows you by your first name. You need a list of cars that’ll excite you. You need this top5…
The boutique quality
The Audi A1 first saw the light of day in 2010 so – as is the way with modern cars – it was recently upgraded to give it an automotive shot in the arm before the new version comes along in a few years. I’ve learnt quite a number of things about this car since 2010 and also after my recent test of this A1 1.8 TFSi Sportback.
The mental case
Today I bring you further evidence that Audi has gone a bit mental. Not content with building quality motor cars, their engineers have produced fine fast cars over the years. After building such monsters as R8, RS7, S8, RS4 and S3, they recently cornered the tiny A1, looked at each other and nodded quietly.
