It is equipped with a 50 kWh battery, which allows a usable range of 382 km (WLTP), which corresponds to a 30% increase over its predecessor. A new R135 electric motor generates 100 kW and 245 Nm of torque and is mated to an input gearbox. An 80 kW motor option is also offered. Fast charging with direct current (DC) is now also available in addition to alternating current (AC) options. But that doesn`t mean we can`t dream and therefore ask you the question. If you could choose 10 cars to see in South Africa, what would they be? We are fans of the body shape of the estate and Volvo`s family V60 estate is sorely missed in South Africa. Unfortunately, station wagons are not very popular in South Africa and in 2017, our own Ciro De Siena wisely coined the term «anti-breakwagonism», a condition that affects local car buyers (watch this video to learn more about anti-breakwagonism). Built to dominate the drag strip, the Demon packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 603 kW and 972 Nm. With racing fuel and equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission that powers the rear rubber, the Demon will decimate the quarter mile in just 9.5 seconds. Zero to 100 km/h should happen in about 2.3 seconds! It should, yes? New Porsche Panamera Get`s Official – Fastest production diesel vehicle of all time While various powerful engines are offered for the F-150, the F-150 Raptor is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine with two turbochargers of 331 kW and 690 Nm of torque and equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission that drives all 4 wheels. The larger F-150 Raptor is an off-road beast, largely because of its impressive variable damping fox shock absorbers that deliver exceptional off-road performance. Variable driving modes are offered, but as with the Ranger Raptor, Baja mode is the mode that allows you to achieve truly incredible off-road performance at high speeds on challenging terrain.
There`s so much to love about the F-150 Raptor and it just has to be on our list of the coolest cars we want in South Africa. As such, it has a crisp, avant-garde style that`s hard to love, and we think it has the look to outperform the best in this segment. As for firepower, a 2.0-liter turbo petrol engine is equipped with 228 kW and 400 Nm of torque, combined with 4-wheel drive and a 7-speed DSG transmission. A plug-in hybrid powertrain is also offered. If it`s available in Mzanzi, we don`t see why the Formentor shouldn`t serve as an attractive choice to counter the German trio`s most predictable design direction. The best price of 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in South Africa is 1,270,350 ZAR from 13 January 2022 The latest 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon price in South Africa updated daily from local market stores/showrooms and Dodge dealer price list at ZAF we try to provide the best possible Dodge prices/offers or offers Challenger SRT Demon 2018 in South Africa and full specifications, but we cannot guarantee, the information is 100% correct (human error is possible), All prices quoted are in ZAR and USD and valid throughout South Africa including Soweto, Johannesburg, Pretoria Slight deviations are expected. First launched in 2009 as the Yeti, this Skoda has serious off-road capabilities, but more than that, it has a wide range of talents, including powerful performance, a spacious and well-designed cabin with a high level of practicality and safety, while offering an excellent level of comfort for passengers and in terms of sophistication on the road, all this helped make it a remarkable commercial success before it was replaced by the Skoda Karoq in 2017. However, this is our loss, because the Volvo V60 is as stylish as it comes. The V60 is available as a plug-in hybrid (T6 and T8 Twin Engine) or as an option with petrol (T5 and T6) or diesel (D3 and D4) engines. With an almost perfect blend of style, practicality and performance, we think the V60 is a damn cool car that we`d love to see on South African roads. It was built primarily for the North American market and is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 209 kW and 355 Nm of torque. It is offered with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which is available with all-wheel drive.
If the Ridgeline were offered in South Africa, we think they would sell pretty well against competitors like the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger. Plus, it would serve as a cool V6 alternative to the Volkswagen Amarok. However, the Honda Ridgeline isn`t just another bakkie, it features a unibody design that makes it stiffer and less bumpy to drive on rougher terrain, which is what ladder-frame bakkies suffer from. Cupra is the high-performance brand of the Spanish car brand SEAT and the Formentor is a new crossover coupe that targets competitors such as the Audi Q3 Sportback, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé and the BMW X4 Coupé, but at seat prices. The South African car market is extremely small compared to other markets such as the UNITED States and China, and local market conditions dictate that there is a wide range of vehicles that are unfortunately not sold in South Africa for various reasons. The Yeti was powered by a selection of petrol and diesel engines with power ranging from 77 kW to 125 kW with front and all-wheel drive in conjunction with a manual or dual-clutch transmission. The Yeti`s off-road capabilities came thanks to a Haldex clutch with a multi-plate clutch system as well as an electronic differential lock. The Yeti wore many hats with absolute confidence and we would like to ride the Yeti in South African conditions.
Nearly 5 years later, Tesla`s electric cars are nowhere visible in South Africa or Africa and we couldn`t be more disappointed. Well, the Model 3 is old, just like Elon and perhaps the only chance to see a Tesla in Mzansi is when the space-ready Tesla Roadster with Starman at the wheel makes a miraculous U-turn into the depths of space and makes its way onto the runway at OR Tambo International Airport with David Bowie out of his speakers. What a day that would be. The Telluride offers a fluffy ride and is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces a fleshy torque of 217 kW and 355 Nm and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Telluride is available as an option in front or all-wheel drive formats with variable power distribution to cope with different terrains. The interior sleeps 8 people and is equipped with all the bells and whistles you`d want from a large, luxurious SUV. When we talk about the love of wagons, we have a special weakness for wagons that offer dazzling performance. How does this BMW Alpina B5 Touring grab you?

Gero Lilleike is a published writer and photographer, with most of his work appearing in the fields of travel and driving. Gero has been working as an automotive journalist for Cars.co.za for 8 years and takes every opportunity to live an adventure, whether off-road or at sea. For Gero, the value of a car is measured by the number of surfboards it can carry. This car will go from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and will reach a top speed of 322 km/h! Under the hood hides a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine set at 457 kW and 800 Nm of torque.
With this performance data put in wagon form, it`s hard not to have the Alpina B5 Touring on our wish list. In 2016, we reported that Tesla had included South Africa in its order book for the Model 3 compact sedan. The announcement caused a lot of excitement in South Africa that we could actually see the electric car giant arrive on the South African coast. We`ll start this list with the current 2020 World Car of the Year, Kia`s flagship SUV, the Telluride, which in itself is a pretty cool price. What a machine, just look at it! The Telluride isn`t produced for right-hand drive markets like South Africa, but we think it would be a great alternative to German SUVs sold locally. We are big fans of the Ford Ranger Raptor as it is perhaps the most powerful off-road Bakkie currently sold in South Africa. But sometimes bigger is better and in the case of ford`s F-series pickups, that`s certainly the case. The full-size F series is the best-selling pickup in the United States and South Africa, fans seem to have an affinity for the F-150 and especially the F-150 Raptor. South Africans love the outdoors and while we have a good selection of very powerful adventure vehicles, there`s a particularly cool double-cab bakkie that`s missing in the South African automotive landscape, and that`s the Honda Ridgeline.
