Following a mild facelift and a few technical upgrades, the Mercedes-AMG A45 4MATIC remains the most potent performance hatchback available in South Africa. New car prices are soaring in South Africa and more consumers are turning to the used car market to find value. Should you not find the motor car you are looking for, please use our request a car facility and let us help you find it. The 2015 Audi Q7 has been officially revealed ahead of its global debut set to happen at the Detroit Motor Show in January.
With a curb weight of just 1995 kg, the 2015 Audi Q7 is billed as being the lightest model in its class. The exterior mirrors are mounted on the shoulders of the doors, while blades run from the front to the rear doors and bear embossed quattro logos. Inside, the new Q7 gets the Audi virtual cockpit seen on the third-gen TT, as well as the latest MMI infotainment system with a bigger touchpad. In seven seat configuration, the Q7 offers 295 litres of bootspace and 770 litres with the third-row seats folded flat, while in a five-seat set-up there’s 890 litres and 2075 litres with the seats folded flat. Other features include a rear seat entertainment system with one or two optional 10.1-inch tablets powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and featuring a full HD camera, 32GB of internal storage as well as Bluetooth, NFC and LTE connectivity. Other markets will also get the 2.0 TFSI engine which delivers 185 kW and 370 Nm of torque. Whilst Toyota has dropped from the coveted top spot, the brand has still increased in overall searches and command a solid second place on the Gautend used car brand popularity rankings. Audi, Ford and Nissan have all increased consistently with Gauteng brand averages over January 2010. Kia’s prize fighter Rio is the brand’s best-selling vehicle globally and has enjoyed much success in the local market with sales averaging over 200 units per month in 2014.
One way to attract customers is to blow them away with attractive styling and Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Kia Motors, has done just that with this facelifted Rio. Step inside the Kia Rio and you are met with a predominantly black interior with hard plastics dominating most surfaces. This Kia Rio comes with a multifunction steering wheel with mounted audio and Bluetooth controls and the steering wheel is also height and reach adjustable.
In terms of space, the Kia Rio offers a fair amount and rear passengers will be happy with sufficient leg and head room.
Our Kia Rio test unit is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.4-litre petrol engine that offers 79 kW and 135 Nm of torque driving the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. At higher speeds the Rio copes well but due to the lack of tractability, overtaking requires a bit of planning and downshifting to access the necessary power.
The Rio comes fitted with an impressive six airbags, ABS, EBD and rear park distance control, but that’s where the safety features end.
The Kia Rio 1.4 Tec manual on test here is priced from R216 995 excluding the sunroof (R7 000).
The Kia Rio won us over with its good looks, but excitement deflated the moment we stepped in for a drive. This is an ultra competitive segment and even though the Kia Rio is well-built and affordable vehicle, it gets outgunned by its turbocharged rivals such as the Volkswagen Polo, Opel Corsa and Renault Clio. Gero Lilleike is a published writer and photographer with most of his work appearing in the fields of travel and motoring. Datsun is officially back in business with the launch of the new Go hatchback scheduled to happen this year, marking the brand’s official return to the South African market. The Datsun GO is said to “offer first time new car buyers accessible motoring” with its stylish and modern looks and all the benefits that come with the pricier models in its segment. The Datsun Go is additionally equipped with a unique mobile docking station that will allow users to sync their smartphone with the audio system through a holder in the centre of the dashboard which can be paired by an AUX cable to the car’s system and the car’s integrated door mounted loudspeakers. Datsun GO is planned to go on sale in the last quarter of CY2014 and the aim is to bring in the car in at under R 100,000 making it a real value proposition for the first time new car buyer.
Sales and service will be initially established through a network of 30 Datsun branded dealerships throughout South Africa, a number to be doubled in mid-term. After showing off the Honda Civic Tourer to the masses at the 2011 Johannesburg Motor Show and receiving a warm reception, Honda South Africa has brought the vehicle to market.
Spending a few days with the Honda Civic Tourer proved to be an entirely pleasant experience.
The engine would definitely be happier if it was being worked by a manual gearbox, the auto it has makes it quite a lazy drive. Nissan claims to have invented the compact SUV segment with the previous-generation Qashqai. For starters the new styling is modern and whilst it may look like a lot of other cars built into one, it pulls off a nicely proportioned compact SUV. This particular model has the optional ‘Techno Pack’ that adds cool gadgetry like built-in Sat Nav, heated door mirrors, an around view camera system that gives you a full birds eye view of your car when parking and the Nissan Connect system. The around view camera is handy too when parking, but for some reason isn't specced with actual parking sensors that would make it the full package. The new Qashqai has a firm ride that helps it stay upright in the corners, it also makes the SUV feel more sporty than it actually is. The new Qashqai improves upon the previous model in all ways and rises to the very top of the compact SUV hierarchy.


Ashley has been riding or driving some sort of motorised vehicle since his 4th birthday when he got a Yamaha PW50. In fact, the first version of Hyundai’s compact SUV remains a popular buy on the used market to this day, just like its successor, the ix35.

The model further features a multi-material body design with aluminium doors, hood, front fenders and rear hatch. There’s also options to choose either xenon, LED or matrix LED headlights, which will include double arrow LED daytime running lights. The flagship SUV will be offered with either a Bose sound system with 3D sound or a more expensive Bang & Olufsen Advanced Audio System with 3D sound and 23 speakers packing 1920 watts of power. There will additionally be an e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid model which has a combined output of 275 kW and 700 Nm.
This additional spending power is often visible in the cars that residents of South Africa’s smallest province choose to drive.
Naturally this makes us a great place for Gauteng residents to find the ideal second hand car. Volkswagen used cars in Gauteng have moved from a previous solid second place to a convincing top spot amongst Gauteng used car browsers. BMW being the highest ranking luxury car manufacturer is still a favourite amongst used car buyers in Gauteng.
Ford used cars for sale in Gauteng have dropped a single position below Opel in the brand rankings, but maintained a top 5 position. The facelifted Kia Rio was introduced to market in February 2015 with some minor exterior and interior changes to keep it relative and competitive, but it faces serious competition in the B-segment from cars such as the Volkswagen Polo, Renault Clio, Opel Corsa, Ford Fiesta and Mazda2.
It’s difficult to deny the Rio’s good looks and it’s probably a big reason why it’s selling so well. This particular model is fitted with comfortable leather seats and the driver’s seat is also height adjustable. The centre rear passenger will however have to make do with a lap seatbelt which could be scary in an accident situation.
In real terms, those figures are sufficient for your average daily runabout, but if you are looking for punchy performance, you won’t find it in the Rio. Most of the Rio’s rivals, such as the Volkswagen Polo and Ford Fiesta, offer traction control and ESP, which puts the Rio on the back foot in terms of safety spec. For a car that looks so pretty, we feel Kia could have done better with the interior execution as well as improving the ride quality. Gero has worked in the motoring space for the last four years and enjoys driving and photographing the latest cars.
Our car has class-leading performance, economy and handling and is built to requirements, not down to a price… the addition of the many advanced features proves this,” said Vincent Cobee, global head of Datsun. As such a full range of optional accessories will be available to personalize the Datsun GO to owner’s requirements” added Des Fenner, General Manager, Datsun.

The Japanese have always made solid and reliable products, and despite pressures from Kia and Hyundai, have kept up with the times and created interesting and desirable cars.
I find it disappointing that South African-spec Civic Tourers are only fitted with a 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated four cylinder with a choice of either a manual or an automatic transmission. My Honda Civic Tourer came with a five-speed automatic gearbox, which isn't the most performance orientated. The rear seats are able to be folded completely flat, which essentially converts the vehicle into a van.
Admittedly estates aren't popular in South Africa, but the practicality offered by such a vehicle makes it worth investigating should you be after a family vehicle with generous load-carrying capacity. The Civic is maybe a bit on the expensive side though as Volvo’s V60 T4 starts at only R10k more than the Civic Tourer. It has had to give up some of that market share though as newcomers aplenty have entered the segment from all corners of the globe. The Nissan Connect system is useful for Smartphone connectivity and has cool built in apps like text-to-speech, Facebook and Google search abilities. There’s also a comparison readout when you turn off the vehicle that lets you know how efficient your current journey was compared to your best ever fuel consumption.
The steering mode can be adjusted between ‘normal’ and ‘sport’ although the difference isn’t that great and the weighting on normal mode is good as is.
It’s filled with great features and style, drives well and even in the smallest diesel variant, doesn’t feel laboured. Combined with a solid performing engine and a generous helping of tech and gadgets, the second generation Nissan Qashqai is sure to continue the success story.
Crushed by the expense of motor racing, Ashley took up journalism and became a writer for some of South Africa’s best motoring magazines and online publications.
High-end models will additionally benefit from dynamic turn signals in the taillights - like the R8 has. Gauteng has however not been completely oblivious to the effects of the global recession, and with the realization that money is a precious commodity, more locals of the Golden province are looking to invest in quality used cars as apposed to splashing out on fancy new cars.
The dominance of both the Volkswagen Polo and Volkswagen Golf brands contributed largely to the success of the Volkswagen brand within the online used car sector.


Second hand BMW cars for sale in Gauteng still constitute 8% of the search volume experienced over January 2010 on Cars.co.za, no small feat for a high end manufacturer, only in Gauteng!
This revised Rio comes with a re-worked ‘tiger-nose grille’ and a new front bumper with lower air intakes and fog lights which gives the Rio a bit of sporty flair.
This facelifted model features chrome accents around the air vents as well as new piano black trim around the radio, which in the opinion of some reviewers, looks rather tacky as opposed to being perceived as being upmarket. Family orientated buyers will appreciate that the Rio comes fitted with rear ISOFIX child seat mounts. It soon became clear, that despite its sporty looks, the Rio’s performance is rather sedate and you really have to hammer the pedal to get the most out of it.
As a result, the Kia Rio doesn’t deal with poor roads very well and imperfections are felt crashing into the cabin regularly. Datsun is the third brand for the Nissan Motor Company along with the company’s Nissan and Infiniti brands.
The Honda Civic Tourer arrived in South Africa very quietly and Honda has admitted that this is a very niche model and it's not expected to sell in huge numbers.
After being blown away by the mechanical marvel and efficiency of the 1.6-litre diesel in the Honda Civic hatchback in 2013, I was expecting to see it in Tourer application too. Some fun with a surfer friend resulted in us trying to see how many surfboards we could get into the Honda Civic Tourer.
Stick with the manual gearbox and you'll be rewarded with yet another quality product from Honda. Inside it’s Honda business as usual, it’s not a high tech fest of all the latest gadgets you want, but a clean, unfussy and durable-looking interior. A lot depends on this new model if Nissan wants to claim back its perch on top of the pile.
Our unit you see here has already clocked up over 11 000km in less than six months and doesn’t show any ill effects inside or out from its stint as a media mule.
It’s a decent engine to drive, it doesn’t feel laggy at the bottom end and mid-range acceleration is impressive. The firm ride is still comfortable around town and over the numerous bumps and jerks we have to deal with on a daily basis.
The rest of the Qashqai lineup features high-tech, low emission turbocharged motors so they are all extremely fuel efficient as well.
It also comes fitted with some snazzy-looking 17-inch alloy wheels which rounds off a good-looking offering. Boot space is in line with its competitors at 288-litres and expands to 923-litres with the rear seats folded flat. A turbocharged engine in the Rio would offer more flexibility and make the drive that much more exciting. Nevertheless, the Rio isn’t all bad as it offers decent space, a solid warranty and competitive pricing, which may be enough to keep buyers happy. Estate vehicles aren't exactly the beauty queens of the automotive world, but I really do like the styling. It also has adjustable rear suspension, but I couldn't feel any differences as I drove around. There are no rattles yet, all the buttons still feel new and the cloth seats still feel firm and supportive.
It doesn’t like to be revved though and has quite substantial drop off once you get over mid-way through the rev range.
The rear seats fold flat with the flick of a lever and the loading space is wide enough for those of us who like to toss bikes in the back.
Out on the freeway the Qashqai is a pretty good cruiser but the excessive wind noise off the wing mirrors at speed is annoying and detracts from what’s a pleasant driving experience.
For these reasons alone it’s probably the first compact SUV I’d recommend to someone looking in this segment.
Overall, there’s not much to get excited about inside the Kia Rio as it seems to be rather ordinary.
The loading sill is high though, which means you may pull a back muscle loading heavy items into the boot. Thankfully, shifting through the gears is relatively smooth and comfortable, making the Rio an easy, fuss-free car to drive on a daily basis, albeit lacking in the power department.
The absence of ESP and traction control may be of concern to safety conscious buyers, especially when considering other cars in this segment have moved the game forward in this regard.
The added weight of Tourer specification and the five-speed automatic gearbox means fuel economy is not going to be a strong point. There was even space for someone to sit too. For a passenger estate, that's extremely impressive and I'm disappointed that estates aren't popular in South Africa. While 11 000km doesn’t sound like much, in the life of a media car it’s probably worth twice that in the hands of an owner.
If you keep it revving low and in the torque band it’s a really impressive engine considering the small capacity. This test unit also came fitted with an optional sunroof (R7 000) which brightens up the interior somewhat. The six-speed manual shifter has a light throw action and can just about be moved around the ratios with a single finger flick.
