Cars For...Your Life
Whether you're in your 20s scoping out a flashy first set of wheels or cruising into a more responsible decade, calvin fisher reckons he has the right car for you.

Far be it for me to tell you what to drive – I mean how could I? A human being is a severely nuanced animal, with sensibilities and compulsions. Add to that the fact that our requirements change not just annually, but from day to day. How else would you explain the rise and rise of the multi-purpose crossover vehicle? And again, that’s not even taking into account your budget or current relationship status. Life is far too complicated to navigate alone, so let me at least try to offer up some cars best suited to your age.

In your 20s

Volkswagen Golf GTI

You’re young and brash – well, as young and brash as you’ll ever be, but this is the time in your life where it’s okay to take chances. You’ll want to do a bit of peacocking, but you’re not quite flush with cash yet. The Golf GTI is the epitome of a posh, quick set of wheels that can grow old alongside you thanks to its understated, timeless styling – that is, if R590k is within your budget.
PRICE: FROM R589 600

THE WALLET-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE:

VW Polo GTI

Want the GTI experience but the finances just ain’t happening? There’s a Polo for that. Too small? Then don’t be afraid to dip into the secondhand market for Mzansi’s favourite hot hatch. They all look the same anyway.
PRICE: FROM R411 900

In your 30s
