Can you park a BMW without looking out of the Window?
[Partner Content] 13 MAY 2014

Intrepid cars.co.za reporter Ciro De Siena is back at it once again, this time putting the new BMW 4-Series advanced parking sensors to the test. The question being answered?

Well, can you park a BMW 4-Series without looking out of the window?

(Nothing that can’t be tested without an old newspaper, masking tape, and a handy nearby parking garage it turns out!)

With that question now answered (for those of you without Youtube video support, the answer is a resounding yes, thanks to some genius new technology in terms of parking assist), it might not be a horrible idea to skip straight through to Ciro’s more in depth review of the new BMW 435i, hosted of course at the always informative cars.co.za website!

Cars.co.za reviews the Aston Martin Rapide S
[Partner Content] 24 MAR 2014

Aston Martin’s iconic DB9 coupe is without a doubt a stunning beast. Which then means that by slapping on an extra two doors onto the car in order to produce a four-seater supercar, we should still be guaranteed just as stunning a beast, right?

Well thankfully, as the gorgeous Aston Martin Rapide S goes on to prove, we were pretty much right on the money.

Cars.co.za reviewer Ciro De Siena put together a great video review for this exotic supercar entry, slapping it on their always informative car reviews subsection of the site:

See?

The Aston Martin Rapide S is not the fastest supercar, nor the cheapest, nor the most practical, nor the most reliable, nor the most economical – and yet, nevertheless, it is still quite extraordinary.

Cars.co.za reviews the latest Toyota Corolla
[Partner Content] 18 FEB 2014

I used to own a Toyota Corolla once. Think it was a 1998 model, horrible sky blue colour, but such an awesome, reliable car. Sadly it was written off by a guy driving a bakkie who thought he could turn across the robot before I reached it.

He was wrong.

I didn’t suffer a scratch mind you, and given the awesome 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating the brand new models have, chances are I wouldn’t have even written the car off in the first place!

As it stands, the latest iteration of this iconic Japanese car is on the release line, and from all accounts this is a very solid car – exactly what one would expect from Toyota come to think of it.

But don’t just take my words for it: Cars.co.za reviewer Ciro De Siena put together a great video review for this smooth, family-friendly beast, before slapping it on their always informative car reviews subsection of the site.

See?

So not a horrible idea then if you are in the market for a safe, reliable and good looking family sedan!

Cars.co.za reviews the latest Range Rover Autobiography
[Partner Content] 22 JAN 2014

The Range Rover Autobiography. That’s a terrible name for a car quite frankly, so obnoxious, so silly.

That said, there isn’t very much silly about this over the top, high end luxury SUV that features more leather and massaging seats than you would find on a cow. Any cow. Seriously, it features a lot of leather.

And more importantly is large and very, very luxurious.

But don’t just take my words for it: Cars.co.za reviewer Ciro De Siena put together a great video review for this powerful and luxurious beast, before slapping it on their always informative car reviews subsection of the site.

See?

So not a horrible idea then if you’ve got a big wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket then.

Need an Android Car Search App?
[Partner Content] 29 AUG 2013

cars co za android app logoNowadays just about everything can be done online, and that includes shopping around for a new car. It used to take weekends of driving up and down Voortrekker road and stopping in at all the little car dealerships in the hope of spotting a) something that appeals to me and b) a decent enough bargain, and considering the fact that in my youth I wrote off three cars, then you can understand just how much time was wasted trying to source a replacement!

Anyway, the point is that in recent years plenty of credible online car search portals have popped up here in South Africa, one of the better ones being Cars.co.za, a comprehensive search portal that allows you to search and browse through both new and second hand cars (and bikes), get car finance quotes, offers both industry and car related news articles, and even throws in a community forum while it’s at it!

Having already previously joined the explosive mobile movement through the release of their iOS Cars.co.za app for iPhone and iPad, they’ve now gone and released something for us Android-lovers out there: the very first Cars.co.za Android mobile app!

Developed by South African mobile application development house Mushroom Cloud, the Cars.co.za Android App is ultra slick and packed to the brim with features, all of which is geared to allowing you the best car browsing experience possible, anytime, anywhere.

I tested the app on both my Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 phone and Proline Smart AK888-13 9.7″ tablet and was pleased to find that the App responded well to both form factors as well as all orientations. It renders smoothly, it’s search functionality is rather comprehensive (never mind all the other added features like news, multi-image displays, reviews, and various tools), and all in all I thought it to be a really good tool and certainly one I could see myself making use of when I eventually need to start thinking about swapping my Getz out for something else.

So definitely a job well done by the Cars.co.za team.
