RPM TV Ep 382: New BMW 5-Series. New Toyota CH-R. New Audi Q2. Fiat 500X update.
The new-generation BMW 5-Series seeks to link business-class tech and comfort to real dynamic appeal. In fact, it borrows heavily from the range-topping 7-Series. This week, we drive the sophisticated sedan on the Garden Route.
Next, the all-new Toyota CH-R is a daring, left-of-centre crossover from a company best known for its conservative designs. Will the quirky compact attract the attentions of a younger audience?
Also defying conventional categorisation is the Audi Q2, a lifestyle SUV that links hatchback-rivalling dynamics with the brand’s most daring design in years. But character and class come at a price.
The versatile and capable Fiat 500X doing duty in the RPM TV long-term test fleet visited a Fiat dealership for a scheduled service and oil change recently. We report back on the experience.
On the news front, the eagerly-awaited Nissan Navara Double Cab has finally arrived, while the Engen Xtreme Audi team is hoping to continue its winning form when the Sasol Global Touring Car racing series kicks off in Cape Town this weekend.
