October 2017 Issue

On our cover this month we have a very special Jeep Wrangler – a 40-inch monster owned by Sean Hill, and created by Maniac 4×4 in Cape Town.

We also test the 2.0-litre VW Amarok and its new V6 sibling in a bit of a drag drag race to compare their performance. We also add a massive caravan to the mix, just to keep things interesting…

A lot of brand-new crossovers entered the local market recently, and we examine a few of the newbies. We give you all the details on the new Honda CR-V, Mini John Cooper Works Countryman, Fiat Panda 4×4 and updated Renault Captur.

The Volvo V90 Cross Country isn’t your typical overland 4×4, but we decided to test its off-road capabilities by travelling to Mozambique. Its performance really impressed us.

Our second travel feature for the month is from reader Bryan Milne, who tells us about his trip to a surprisingly green and lush Kgalagadi.

Our road test this month is the impressive Mazda CX-5, and we also examine two dueling limited editions: The Toyota Hilux Raider Black Edition and the Ford Ranger Fx4. Our second-hand guide looks at some fun and frugal crossovers.
