Hyundai H1 Panel Van

I don’t think that I would ever be in the market for a commercial type of vehicle. You might feel the same but I guess one day, things change and you find yourself as an owner of a business, ready to move some goods. The Hyundai H1 Panel van is just one of the many options available to us in South Africa and it’s based on its popular passenger derivative,

Mitsubishi Pajero 3.2 GLS Legend II

They say legends are made, and that is the case with the Pajero. The Pajero 4 has been with us for the last 10 years and over then, they have had multiple opportunities to not replace it, but to improve it and this means the Pajero is now a premium choice for overlanders and travelers alike. The Pajero when directly compared to newer vehicles (only in model shape) like the

Renault Megane 4 First Drive

After nearly 8 years of seeing the Megane 3, we’ve finally been handed its replacement and from a short encounter, driving it on the local media launch, its good, very good. The car itself has been completely redesigned from the ground up and now looks amazing from any angle. It also extends the new design by bigger contours and broader curves, which gives the Megane an aggressive and sporty road

Harley-Davidson Road King Classic 103B

When I was a younger, I could not understand who would buy a big, classic looking bike that offers no adrenalin, just nothing that makes you enjoy riding, or I had my riding requirements completely wrong. I have seemed to get a little wiser because now I really can’t think of anything better than a Road King Classic in my garage, maybe not as my only bike, but there would

Audi A4 1.4 TFSI S-Line

The new B9 A4 has graced our shores a couple of months ago. The new A4 also features Audi’s new signature Axe like LED Daylight running lamps which reminds us of the beautiful R8, which has also just been replaced with a newer model. But back to the matter at hand. The baby A4, here in 1.4 TSFI guise comes in at the bottom, but from spending decent time behind

Mini Clubman S

Mini –  [adjective] denoting a miniature version of something. I don’t buy that for one second. For starters, If it was truly a mini, I would hardly fit in it right? On the contrary, the mini range has been extended, revamped and improved. The new Clubman S, will leave most mini aficionados frothing at the mouth… At the heart of the Clubman S is a 2.0 Turbocharged mated to an

Renault Captur Sunset 1.5 DCI First Drive.

A small diesel B-Segment crossover, economy, and torque all packed in one? I think this is what the Renault fans have been waiting for. While the K9K model has been used in various vehicles around the globe and has been used in the Clio 3, Duster, Kadjar and finally now the baby Suv, the Captur, its here and it means business, especially from the fuel economy standpoint. The new Limited

BMW X1 xDrive20d

The new BMW X1 has seen a complete revamp. It’s now more of a Suv and looks a lot less like a car. I’ve been saying that their X range has taken a drastic increase in size, with the X1, size more like the 1st generation X3 and the X3, well… That’s about the size of an X5. It’s not a bad thing. People want space, people interested in this

VW 2.0 Kombi Comfortline DSG

The latest kombi, now available with a 7 speed DSG came to us not too long after our test with the Hyundai H1, arguably its biggest rival in terms of cost and value for money. I’ve never been a bus person, but having the additional space the last couple of weeks and a little person and all his goodies to load and contend with, they make perfect sense! The Kombi’s

The Renault Kadjar range gets extended with a dual-clutch option and a new engine.

After our last review, we found the Kadjar not only a game changer for the brand but also a premium option in its segment. While there was a lack of transmission options, it has now been taken care of by the likes of a dual-clutch variant. A 7 speed for the turbocharged petrol and a 6 speed for the 1.5 diesel. The original Kadjar line up remains, with a new
