I realise that, by now, this comparison has probably been done a hundred times. Still, here’s my take on the differences between these cars and a few more considerations before you sign on the dotted line.
The small hatchback segment is becoming increasingly popular once again. This, as people are increasingly only moving around within towns and large cities, as well as needing a light city car with regards to soaring fuel prices. Luckily, we recently tested the Peugeot 208, Renault Clio and the Mazda 2.
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 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…
Mazda is in big trouble. This is merely an assumption on my part because I used to think that the left-field Japanese brand was simply dancing to its own tune. But after testing their small(est) CX crossover, I got the feeling that they are in a spot of bother…
Hey, when last have we done a comparison at NamWheels? These two new hatchbacks arrived on my driveway exactly one month apart with quite a few similarities to their character…
Some of us have short attention deficits or do not necessarily have the time to read through one long article to find one simple answer? I will therefore give you a simple answer before I start rambling on about the nitty-gritty.
It had to be done. I’m sure it’s already been done a couple of times but when two near-identical cars pitched up in my driveway, and less than a month apart, I simply had to compose this comparative review.
Die bakkie oorlog: meer prominent as ooit vantevore
Die Suider-Afrikaanse mark is sterk besig om te neig na twee spesifieke voertuig-segmente, waarvan die Sportsnutsvoertuig een is. Die beeld en doel van ‘n bakkie (oftewel “Pickup”) het egter oor die afgelope paar jaar aansienlik verander. Die ‘bakkie’ soos ons dit ken word deesdae al meer gebruik as ‘n stedelike voertuig vir die avontuurlustiges. Dus het die rol van die bakkie verander om meer van ‘n stedelike “SUV” te wees, eerder as ‘n werks voertuig. Hierdie maak die taak vir vervaardigers geweldig moeilik.
