Opposites Attract
Motoring journalist Juliet mcguire shows you the best of both worlds with two cars on either end of the scale
Juliet Mcguire

You might think that being a motoring journalist involves driving fast and fancy cars. While this is the case some of the time, most of the time you’re stuck behind a computer screen, typing up articles such as this one. But one of the reasons I love my job is because I’m not only exposed to the premium products most of us could only ever dream of buying; I also get to go from one extreme to the other. In one week, I went from driving a million-Rand car to one that could cost you less per month than your cell phone bill.



This is Land Rover’s fastest-selling vehicle and a mid-sized compact SUV that offers more than just being a school runaround. It’s capable off-road as well and it’s this that makes it so appealing.

It recently received an update, although you’ll be forgiven for not being able to see the difference right away. To be honest, I had to read the press release to see what was different from the outgoing model. There are new headlamps at the front and rear, as well as a new bumper and grille. You can also opt for 21-inch wheels. But that’s pretty much it in terms of the design changes.
