We’re ending the year off with quite an important car. The cover of our December 2021 issue of CAR features the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class which will continue the heritage of the brand in South Africa as its most advanced iteration yet.
The W206 can be had with a 2,0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel or 1,5-cylinder four-cylinder turbopetrol with the range starting just over R850 000. We get behind the wheel of both of these cars to see just how much the compact executive sedan has evolved from the successful W205.
A monumental inclusion to the South African market is the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 which brings with it a fresh new turbodiesel mill and highly competitive platform. Further enhancing its appeal is a plethora of advanced technical and safety features together with a bold design. We hop into the driver’s seat to see if all of these modern inclusions have further advanced what has become a staple product for the Japanese manufacturer.
While not as capable, the updated Volkswagen Tiguan is an SUV that still maintains a notable amount of relevance in our local market, despite the inclusion of the smaller T-Roc and T-Cross. We put the German crossover to the full test to see if it maintains its appeal among consumers looking for a versatile and premium family car.
The Jaguar E-Type turns 60 years-old this year. What better way to celebrate that then by jumping in the driver’s seat of this incredible and iconic classic car. In both coupe and convertible guise, we head back in time to the pinnace of British motoring and appreciate the E-Type’s thrilling and unique persona.
All this and more in the December 2021 issue of CAR!
