June 2016 Issue

This is a bumper issue that contains all the usual features, as well as a 48-page adventure guide.

Our usual content kicks off with a first drive in the all-new Volvo XC90 T8. This plug-in hybrid is good for an all-electric range of 30km. We tried it in the city and we tested its off-road prowess in the bush to see if it really does offer the best of both worlds.

In the road test segment we look at the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, Volkswagen Caravelle 4Motion and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

The adventure segment includes a trip down to Mozambique in the all-new Toyota Fortuner and a quick visit to the Afrika Burn festival in two compact crossovers.

It was also a good month for project vehicles, as we completed two Kias for the Nampo Harvest Festival. In the nick of time, we might add.

Finally, we took a closer look at a 4×4 competition that aims to raise money to save South Africa‚Äôs dwindling rhino population.
