RPM TV Schedule 01 June 2016: Audi vs BMW vs Mercedes-Benz
Luxury cars remain in high demand in South Africa, but everyone’s buying down. So, how good are the most affordable premium compact sedans from the Big Three German brands? We pit the recently launched Audi A4 1.4 TFSI against the BMW 318i and the Mercedes-Benz C180.
For those with an appetite for glamour and wind-in-the-hair motoring, the third-generation Mini Cooper Convertible may be a slightly left-of-centre alternative to more conservative ragtops. But don’t expect too much as far as practicality is concerned.
Finally, after 12 months and more than 20 000 km behind the wheel of our long-term VW Amarok 2.0 TDI Trendline Double Cab 4Motion, it’s time to say goodbye to the beefy bakkie. We enjoyed its versatility, off-road talent – and its excellent fuel consumption.
