February 2014 Issue
Available at major retailers as well as in digital format, the Leisure Wheels print magazine is published monthly with off-road, overlanding, travel, modification and how-to content. We focus heavily on photography, priding ourselves in the outstanding members we have on our team. We also regularly publish readers’ adventures and stories, as well as your letters. Take a look at what’s in this month’s issue:
Our road test for February is the underrated Subaru Outback Diesel. We put this unusual crossover through its paces, and find out if it can take on more traditional compacts SUVs.
Our annual TowCAR of the year competition officially kicks off in this issue with a profile on the 12 contestants. This year we test twelve diesel SUVs to find out which one copes best with a heavy caravan.
You can also read about Lady Luiwa – the last lioness of the Luiwa plains in a wonderful travel story by overland guide Andre van Vuuren, and you can follow an Isuzu KB as it visits the Cape’s scenic spots.
Finally, you can read about a scary night spent amidst a pride of lions, learn about the tough job of mud engineering in the DRC, and explore the beauty of KZN’s Hibiscus Route.
