On our cover this month is a brand-new Ranger offering from Laz Performance. The company now offers South African Ranger owners an authentic M-Sport conversion for their Ford bakkies. The Ranger MS-RT is not only eye-catching, but offers a decent dollop of added performance as well.

Great Wall Motors (GWM) recently launched its premium SUV brand, Haval, in South Africa. We took a road trip in its H2 compact SUV ahead of the vehicle’s official release.

What happens when you transform an entry-level FWD Sorento into something, well, a tad more dramatic? You get the Leisure Wheels Project Sorento – one very attention-grabbing SUV. The vehicle made its official debut at the Nampo Harvest Show.

Our road test for the month is the Volvo V90 Cross Country. Sleek and low-slung, this estate is an interesting alternative to a more traditional luxury SUV.

On the technical side, we examine just what turbo lag actually is, and we give you some basic steps to follow when shopping around for a used 4×4.
