Celebrating one year of APEX magazine, issue 05 has hit the shelves! In the latest edition, we went full send with the celebrations in this issue’s cover car, the 992-generation Porsche 911 GT3. In addition, we were hit for a six in BMW’s impressive emissions-free SUV, the iX; and put a duo of Nürburingring-honed Hyundais, the updated i30 N and first-ever Kona N, to the test. 

We also sampled the Maserati Levante in hybrid form and the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class in diesel guise before crossing over to a couple of crossovers, the new, SA-bound Nissan Qashqai and the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro. Isuzu’s new mu-X is also put to the test.

A duo of hatchbacks also appeared as we drove the refreshed Volkswagen Polo and tested the Renault Clio V. Luggage loaded; we embarked on a series of memorable road trips in the bold new Kia Sorento and headed to Old Mac Daddy in the i30 N. 

The celebrations continue as we pay tribute to Ferrari. This year, the Prancing Horse brand turned 75 years old. To celebrate the Maranello manufacturer’s 75th, we strapped into what is widely regarded as the “Holy Grail” of motor vehicles, the 250 GTO, in an exclusive drive. 

This and many more in the latest edition of APEX, the peak of South African motoring. Be sure to grab your copy — in-store or in digital format online — and subscribe to South Africa’s hottest automotive magazine.
