Oh it’s really Swift!

Suzuki Swift Sport NZ

It’s always been the case that some cars are simply more fun than others and one of the perennial Kiwi “fun car” favourites, the Suzuki Swift Sport, just got an update. It’s broken through the $30k barrier and comes with all manner of gadgets from satnav to adaptive cruise control, so is it still as […]

Mini Clubman JCW review – Mini and Mighty

Mini Clubman JCW Review NZ

The motoring public’s love of Mini literally began the moment it was unveiled by BMC in 1959. A darling of the 60s, the tiny yet ‘oh so practical’ car came at a time when fuel prices were high and skirts were short. It was an instant family favourite and most, if not all of us […]

5th Generation SEAT Ibiza – Small car, big personality

Suzuki Swift – Gold at the end of the Rainbow

Rainbows have a magical awe about them. In Roman/Greek mythology Iris (a messenger of the gods) is the God of the Rainbow, In Indonesia a Rainbow is a bridge used by soul boats, Christians think it represents Christ’s throne, the Arabs think it’s a giant Bow and lastly my favorite – The Irish believe that […]
