Why is it always the poor Volvos we compare to other vehicles? We at NamWheels believe that they offer such refreshing alternatives to those regular market dominators that direct comparisons are absolutely necessary.
More expensive is always the better, right?
To answer in short: No. Ask me what I would purchase with the odd R650,000 and I will without a doubt choose the Volkswagen Golf GTi or even Golf R. These two models are sublime and the ideal small family package for those more inclined to have a heavy right foot.
Drive to Defy. Although my co-pilot and I were tempted to visit an appliance warehouse, what Volkswagen of South Africa meant by that tagline is that their new compact crossover is meant for the defiant among us. City slickers get a T-Cross, families should grab a Tiguan while the movers and shakers may welcome this new T-Roc.
Gedurende Desember van 2019 het ons die geleentheid gehad om die Volkswagen Amarok Canyon vir ‘n maand deur die passe te plaas. Gerieflik genoeg is die Canyon gebruik om te help met ‘n verhuisings-proses asook ‘n kort vakansie deur die grondpaaie van die Suid-Kaap. Die Canyon het ‘n geweldige leemte gelaat nadat dit weggeneem is in vroeg Januarie. Nou, ses maande later, is die Amarok Dark Label aan ons gegee vir ‘n week.
One year after the successful launch of the Volkswagen T-Cross in South Africa, the slightly bigger T-Roc is set to be revealed to the general public on 17 June 2020. It should hit the roads of South Africa, Namibia and Botswana in November 2020. This will complete Volkswagen’s T-SUV range in South Africa.
Final Golf 7 to hit South-African roads with some TCR vrrrrpha!
As the world currently sees itself in a pandemic, most of us are eagerly waiting to take on the roads again. Well, Volkswagen South Africa might just have the perfect solution, but you will have to jump as only a very limited number of these models will be sold in southern Africa.
Undeniably the fastest production bakkie currently being sold in South Africa (yes, we have valid reasons to make this statement), Volkswagen just updated their stellar V6 diesel-powered steed. The manufacturer, who enjoyed one of their most successful years to date, kindly entrusted us with the new special-edition Canyon for a month.
Last year, Galimoto Media took to the roads of the Eastern Cape to test the new Volkswagen Polo range as the sixth generation of this car was launched. Now, some time after this initial; and a few other; tests with the Polo, we got to test the Beats version.
The long-awaited T-Cross makes its way to our shores
Volkswagen South Africa has just launched its first small-compact SUV contender, just as the German manufacturer announced its new ideals for future mobility. The question, however, begs if Volkswagen did not maybe join the compact SUV rivalry too late? Well, Volkswagen took us on a roadtrip along the Garden Route to prove skeptics wrong.
