We think we’ve put together one of our best ever issues for December, and it’s on sale now!
We travel overseas to drive the new wave of Frenchies: the Citroen C4 Cactus, and the European-COTY-winning Peugeot 308. On home soil we gather SA’s best double-cab bakkies for a shootout with a difference: it’s Toyota Hilux vs. Rivals. Before we look to the future of the legendary vehicle… 2016 and beyond.
In addition to the baby BMW M, we stretch the legs of a Bentley Continental GT Speed, we have our first ‘go’ in the new Datsun Go, and we try out Jeep’s new rebel, the Renegade. Lexus’ new V8-powered RCF sports coupe gets a good pasting, we test VW’s highly practical new Caddy, and we see if the new super-sized Nissan X-Trail is any good.
