Audi has launched a brand new, leaner and meaner TT sports coupé in South Africa – and we’ve driven it on some of Mpumalanga’s best mountain roads. The newcomer also features Audi’s innovative Virtual Cockpit that marries infotainment and instruments in a single, configurable display.
The latest addition to the catalogue of desirable cars plying South African roads is the Bentley Continental GT V8 S – a two-door that links British heritage to rapid, effortless motoring. We’re the first to drive it locally.
You’d be forgiven for believing BMW’s i8 is science fiction on four wheels. The futuristic sports car ups the hybrid ante with spectacular styling, high-tech construction and thrilling dynamics. Is this the future of sports cars? We find out on the sweeps and curves of the Steenkampsberg Pass.
BMW’s first foray into the compact SUV segment is also its first front-wheel drive car. We find out if the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer remains true to the brand’s driving pleasure ethos. Next, the A3 Sedan remains one of the best sellers in the Four Rings stable. Adding a retractable canvas hood and S-car dynamics makes the Audi S3 Cabriolet both fast and glamorous.
Ford hasn’t contested the medium sedan market since the Mondeo. But the new Ford Fusion promises much more: luxury, safety, space, decent dynamics, and a big boot. Will that be enough to persuade buyers, though?
Some thought it would never happen, but Audi has finally released an S-car version of its A1 subcompact hatch. The S1 features quattro all wheel drive and loads of urge – as we found out during a track session at the Kyalami Grand Prix circuit.
