The Renault Kwid is one of the most affordable cars available in the local market, it's and a great choice for first-time vehicle owners,' writes Wheels24's Leigh-Ann Londt.

'South African motorists love small vehicles as much as they love SUVs and bakkies, this basically gives an answer as to why Renault decided to design the Kwid as a mini-SUV', writes Leigh-Ann Londt. 

In a few weeks time, South Africans will celebrate Heritage Day (September 24). The aim is to celebrate our different cultures and traditions and in that process learn more about each other. 

The Bugatti Chiron has proven to that it is the epitome of hypercars, breaking the world speed record for a road car by reaching an incredible 490km/h.

Sean Parker drove the 50th anniversary edition Nissan GT-R, here's what he had to say: "Compared to newer high-performance cars, the GT-R doesn't feel that quick behind the wheel and the claimed sub 3-second 0-100km/h time feels as fake as a loan-shark's smile. Perhaps at the coast it would feel a lot faster. 

But what the GT-R can do is incredibly well is corner at high speed. It defies physics with its ability to tackle a corner with supreme grip and unfailing confidence, but be warned... it takes commitment from the driver to know what this car is capable of around bends."
