We've had a look back at just how popular our car reviews proved in 2012, and selected the top ten according to clicks.
For the year, we published 48 comprehensive reviews on vehicles offered in South Africa. Below are the ten that generated the most interest with you, the readers. Bear in mind that bakkies are not included, as they will be covered in a separate feature.
It makes for interesting and somewhat surprising reading. Click on the vehicle's name to read the full review.
1. Audi A4 3.0T FSI
You may struggle to point out the distinctions between the new Audi A4 and its predecessor. But they're there, promise. We drive the 200kW 3.0T FSI S tronic quattro...
2. Toyota 86
The Toyota 86 lives up to the extensive hype - it's fun to drive, great to look at and, best of all, it's amazing value for money. We were lucky enough to drive the manual...
3. Mitsubishi Pajero Sport
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport can scale mountains, but struggles to deal with the average-sized parking bay. We drive the new manual version of this bakkie-based SUV.
4. Hyundai H1 Multicab
The Hyundai H1 Multicab seats six and its load area boasts 2500 litres of storage space. Could this "supervan" eat into double-cab bakkie sales? We drive it to find out.
5. Nissan Juke
The Nissan Juke is an assault on the senses that leaves consumers wondering: "what the hell is it?". We drive the range-topping DIG-T Tekna. Style, substance, or both?
6. Lexus IS 350
German sedans. SA loves 'em. So, what makes Toyota's posh division think it can grab a slice of the pie with the Lexus IS 350? We drive the 233kW Japanese sedan to find out.
7. Subaru WRX
Yes, the Subaru WRX has been around for a few years. But - for the time being, anyway - it's being offered at a pretty decent discount. We drive this 195kW beast...
8. Infiniti FX50 S
The Infiniti badge is about as familiar to South Africans as a calorie-restricted diet is to the nation's average Member of Parliament. We drive the flagship Infiniti FX50 S.
9. Hyundai i30
Hyundai products of old were about as visually rousing as a pile of dehydrated potatoes. But these days, things are different. We drive Hyundai's new Golf-fighter, the i30.
10. Chevrolet Captiva
The new diesel version of the Chevrolet Captiva may have been intended to simply bolster the SUV's range, but it turns out to be the pick of the bunch. We drive it.
