April is generally a slow month in the terms of local car launches due to the Easter and Public Holidays, yet it's the following month that usually bears the brunt as a flurry of new models are launched. 

This year is no exception with no less than seven new models headed to South Africa including a high-performance version of the Ford Ranger, called the Raptor. 

Other notable models are a trio of AMG cars from Mercedes, including the C63 S,  CLS 53 and E53 Coupe. Land Rover will show off the second generation Range Rover Evoque and BMW unveils its new flagship SUV, the X7 at the end of the month.
