SA4x4 review the latest in 4×4. From off-road testing to on-road first drives.

Rock Solid Industries has just completed development of its latest innovation: the RSI SmartCanopy EVO. This all-new stainless steel canopy option is designed to last a lifetime. With modern design features and built tough to handle whatever conditions are thrown its way, you’ll be assured that your canopy choice is a clever purchase. One of the key things about the SmartCanopy range is the complete knock-down design. Each canopy is flat-packed and shipped with individual parts – roof, front flange, rear door and side panels. This offers reduced shipping costs and easily replaceable parts, if damaged. RSI canopies are set

There is only one canopy that is safe, secure and strong.

With over 50 years of experience in the automotive industry, SMM, a Tier 1 supplier of body panels to various OEMs, is the only producer of pressed steel canopies in the world, which are manufactured using the same material and production techniques employed by the automotive industry.

The Wild Premium Aluminium Canopy offered by Wild Accessories is built to offer premium stability and great looks.

The Rhinoman canopy range comes in three distinct models which are the RhinoCab, RhinoLite and RhinoSuperlite. All three variants are aimed at the leisure market in the various price brackets. The Superlite is the entry-level canopy and has a square design and unpainted doors. The RhinoLite canopy is more rounded and has a profile in line with the vehicle roof. The RhinoCab unit is 40mm higher than the roof, and is contoured to the shape of the vehicle. All units come standard with mounting rails on the roof for the attachment of a roofrack or other carrying equipment. All units

The Bushtech Aluminium Canopy is designed for strength and modularity.  Accessories can be easily clipped or bolted in, giving the user a variety of custom set-up options. The doors come standard with a continuous hinge – reinforcing the canopy’s dust-proof and waterproof capabilities. The Bushtech Canopy has been load tested up to 2500kg, ensuring that any rooftop accessory can be used with complete peace of mind. The canopy comes standard with a pressure equaliser vent. Positive pressure vents can be added as an option if animals or people are transported in the canopy. The canopy comes standard with custom-made external

The extensive variety of canopies available on the market for most double cabs, single cabs and super cabs makes choosing the most suitable canopy not as simple as finding one that fits. Before diving in and purchasing a canopy from Honest Eddy’s Budget Canopy Emporium or the first dealer you find, it’s important to decide what you need in a canopy. Are you storing gear on the roof of the canopy and is a roof rack required? Can the canopy take the weight of your roof top tent? What materials and material weights are most suited to your particular travel

Mitsubishi has taken bold steps with the redesign of the Triton, just two years after South Africa received the fifth-generation model, and, if everyone is honest, it’s a great improvement. That wide and angular new face with its high-set headlights, daytime running lights, and flashes of brightwork, is taking no prisoners. Visually, it is complemented by heavily flared wheel arches, a crisp shoulder line and redesigned tail lights. The previous undercut join between cab and load body is gone. The result? A beefy-looking bakkie that looks like it can duke it out with anything out there. An interior makeover is

All too often, 4x4s are driven with too heavy a load. You might be towing a big boat or trailer, perhaps you have loaded up a large pile of sand for a construction project. Most often, when overlanding with the family, your vehicle is heavily loaded with the added weight of a canopy, drawer system, roof-top tent, awning, fridge and full tanks of water and fuel. In these instances, the rear is sagging, headlights are pointing towards the sky, the steering is very light, and the suspension is hitting the bump stops on every undulation. Bad news. You can fix

Quit the milk bottle jokes, the new Ranger is now also available with 2.0-litre single- and bi-turbo engines, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. And whatever your views on cubic capacity, it makes for a super-capable vehicle. The exterior has been given some tweaks, including new HID headlamps. The interior is now a bit darker, and the suspension has been revised for a plusher ride with less body roll. The 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre turbodiesel engines are retained in a line-up that includes 33 derivatives, but the big news is the latest tech. The single turbo engine puts out 132kW and

When I was a child, my absolute favourite car was Petter Solberg’s blue and gold Subaru Impreza that narrowly snatched the WRC away from Sébastien Loeb in the early 2000s. I had a remote-controlled replica that had all the decals and all the details. I was in love with a supreme piece of engineering, although I didn’t know it at the time. Fast-forward to 2019, and the Subaru AWD legacy lives on in the Forester, the compact SUV that looks more like a station wagon than anything else. These cars are best known for their reliability and longevity: Foresters often
