We can all be a little more responsible on the road. No driver is perfect and we all make mistakes. It’s also very easy to fall into bad habits over time as you become a more experienced driver.
But going into autopilot on the road and thinking that you’ve got it covered is not a safe way to drive. We’re going to talk today about some of the things you can do differently to become a more responsible road user.
Ever since the Subaru WRX’s debut in the early 2000s, this rally-derived Japanese sports compact quickly earned the respect of enthusiasts making it a car that needs no introduction.
The 2018 edition of Subaru’s performance-oriented WRX features updated styling, new equipment and an array of safety features. Under its bonnet lies a 2.0-litre direct-injection turbocharged Subaru Boxer® engine. Engine output is rated at 197 kW with 350 Nm of torque and you’ll get from 0 – 100 km/h in a claimed 6.3 seconds. Symmetrical all-wheel drive comes standard and the model I drove was equipped with the Sport Lineartronic® CVT transmission with SI-DRIVE and paddle shifters.
The Subaru XV blurs the lines between a hatchback and a compact SUV and with its solid foundation, impressive safety features, comfortable ride and off-road ability it’s a great all-rounder for anyone with an active, outdoor lifestyle and a love for adventure.
Thanks to Subaru SA, I recently got to spend a week driving the 2018 Subaru XV 2.0i-S ES CVT. Aptly nicknamed ‘The Traffic Cone’ by my kids for obvious reasons. The ‘Sunshine Orange’ actually grew on me and by the end of the week, I’d say its probably the best colour for the car.
Suzuki South Africa recently launched the all-new Swift at an official media event held at the Fairmont Zimbali Resort on KwaZulu Natal’s North Coast.
The launch kicked off with a gala dinner where Suzuki introduced the all-new Swift giving everyone in the room #AllTheRightFeels. This worked out well considering their clever marketing campaign aimed squarely at millennials who seem to love catching feels. They also managed to sneak in a reveal of the new Dzire sedan.
Having never driven a Peugeot before I was super excited and went into my #FeelPeugeot weekend with no preconceived ideas or expectations. Now it’s important to note that this is the first SUV from the French car manufacturer since 2013 so I was more than a little excited to drive the car.
