Magazine Description

In this issue

This month’s TopGear takes a closer inspection behind the evolution of the omnipresent hot hatch. Specifically where it started, the ones that left their mark on history and where it’s all headed. Our main feature with the Audi SQ2 and Mercedes-AMG A 35 reaches that psychological crossroad but just because Audi repurposes the formula into something a little taller, do the gains outweigh the compromises? Not messing with the recipe is our main cover story on the new Porsche 911 which we drove on the international launch. Faster, techier and safer than before, the 992 lays down the gauntlet to those competitors who now need to run back to the drawing board. We also stage a posh supermini battle with Audi’s A1 against the MINI Cooper, drive the Lamborghini Huracan EVO around a racetrack, see if Lexus’s chic hybrid crossover is the best electrified solution to Eskom’s loadshedding and drive the upcoming RAV4 ahead of its local debut. Join us on Nevada’s extra-terrestrial highway in a bombproof tank-car – should the visitors not come in peace, we have a deployable smoke screen – or step inside Jim Glickenhaus’s garage where he stores many of the world’s most exclusive supercars - my personal highlight in this magazine. As always, from the team and I, thanks for being a TopGearSA reader. We hope you enjoy the magazine and that it goes some way to answering your questions about where the hot hatch is headed. Andrew Leopold - Editor
