December 2017 Issue

This month, we take a close look at the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class. We drive the German automaker’s bakkie in Chilé and let you in on whether we think it lives up to all the hype.

We also conduct a shoot-out between 13 crossovers on our first-ever Leisure Wheels Adventure Lite to find out which car is the best.

The new local launches include the Range Rover Velar, the new Nissan X-Trail and the upgraded Toyota Hilux and Fortuner models. We spend time behind the wheel of the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, the Haval H6 C and drive the new BMW X3 in Portugal.

It’s not all about standard cars, however. We take a look at the Tamiya Hilux Bruiser and a bunch of amphibious 4x4s.

We also feature a British couple’s travels through Southern Africa in a 1989 Toyota Hilux, named Hamba and finally, we take a closer look at the Porsche 597 Jagdwagen.
