Haval’s new H6 SUV will make people over look the C-word

There’s a completely new brand of SUV called Haval coming to South Africa, which is nice. But if you buy one, be prepared to hear the C-word. A lot. Haval is Chinese, a part of the Great Wall Motors (GWM) group. While some early models were badged “Great Wall Haval”, it’s now a standalone SUV brand.  “Early” is a relative term for a company that was only founded in 1990. But the range now includes the small H2, the large H8 and the off-road-style seven-seater H9. Haval’s newest model is the mid-sized H6, which is currently…

When Lamborghini relieved the Huracan of its front driveshaft, thus making it rear-wheel drive, it also cut power from 449Kws to ‘just’ 427Kws. The lighter, edgier LP580-2 would still do 0-100Km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and nudge 320km/h flat out, though. And for the first time, pull big, smokey slides in the process. Novitec’s Huracan will also do smokey drifts. Bigger ones, if the power figure is anything to go buy. To the naturally-aspirated V10 the German tuner has bolted two – yes, two – superchargers, taking total output to…

2017 Renault Duster Revealed

2017 Renault Duster Revealed
Share Button

What is it? Shockingly affordable, says Renault . How shocking? This compact crossover-style machine costs from R304 900 or R85 000 less than the price of a Nissan Qashqai 1.5cdi. The Duster is bigger inside, too and has the same 1.5-litre dCi turbodiesel engine should you so wish. That’s shocking. Indeed, it should be no surprise to find there are compromises to saving money when buying a Renault Duster. It’s just that the proven Renault bits beneath mean it shouldn’t break or fall to bits.  To buyers who want something…

BMW has unveield the DTM Champion Edition M4, complete with a huge rear wing, a BMW M colour sticker kit and a power boost up to 493bhp.   Effectively an M4 GTS but with a different set of decals, the DTM special uses the same water injection technology and has a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds. The car also comes with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and the quite frankly ludicrous titanium exhaust system found on the GTS. The sticker and aero kit is said to mimic DTM race…
