The March issue of CAR mag once again contains our Top 12 awards. Eagerly anticipated by the public and hugely respected by the motoring industry, the CAR editorial team lists its top cars (and runners up) in what we see as the key 12 motoring segments in the new vehicle market.
As always, the CAR team spent many hours discussing and debating what the winners should be and the result is a 16-page feature that you simply have to read if you’re thinking of buying a car.
Or even if you’re not… it’s still worth finding out what SA’s most respected magazine thinks are the best cars in the country.
