News & Tips

It is unfortunate that Vernal Car Advisers was unable to attend the international launch
of this beauty in Barcelona, Spain. The E Class Coupe which sits between the C Class
Coupe and the S Coupe has landed in the South African shores. More exciting news
is that it has the same engine lines as the sedan but it’s a pity there is not yet a word
on the E43 Coupe yet.. but can you imagine how beautiful that would be.[...]

in VW so don’t confuse it with the high performance ST.. Second in the line-up is the
crossover-styled Fiesta Active which is most probably going to rival the cross polo and
then finally the next best thing before the ST-line, the Titanium 5 door.[...]

The fifth Gen Land Rover Discovery
Before anything else, let’s talk about the Discovery’s history. The original Discovery

being gearbox failures. In 1998, BMW pumped in money and launched the Discovery
2. Two years down the line, Ford came into play and bought Land Rover for a [...]
