  • The Best seller CR-V just got better

    Over the past few years, Honda has been at the forefront of automotive technology. And the inventors for the “Comfortable Recreational Vehicle”, or  Honda CR-V have just now launched the latest iteration. We always knew it was going to be good, but how good exactly is this new version....
  • Mazda BT-50 3.2 Diesel D/C 4X4 Road Test

      Mazda BT-50, just like its cousin, the Ford Ranger received a make over this year.  We take a brand new BT-50 over some dirt roads, a  little off roading and use it for our daily commute. On the outside, the Mazda BT-50 has been updated to look more...
  • Audi makes multiple subtle changes to the 2017 Q5

    There’s a principal in business that goes, if you want to succeed in your field, you must be the “best in the world at…”. This principal holds true simply because if you’re not the best, someone else will be. Audi have adopted this principal locally and have, with the...

  • BMW 4 Series even more stylish than before

      BMW have revived the 4 Series for 2017. Hardly necessary if you ask me, as the 4 Series is already a stylish and modern offering if you’re in the market for a coupe or convertible.   We head to Mpumalanga for a 500km road trip around some of the...
  • Jaguar wins at Goodwood

    In a strange twist of irony, Jaguar has won a hill climb, but not the one they support locally. The Goodwood festival of Speed. It was an eye candy filled weekend with cars ranging from 90 year old Bugatti’s to Formula one cars of various backgrounds, all rich in...
  • BMW Adds Black fire to its M Division

    I’m a pretty tall guy and one thing that tall guys all around the world can agree on is the fact that we love big vehicles, from pick-up’s to SUV’s. So, if you’re also into the thrill of big vehicles then you’ll be glad to know that BMW is...
