Tested: Ranger vs Hilux vs KB vs Amarok

As the resident soutie of the TopCar team charged with comparing this quartet, this will be a double-cab shootout with a difference.

Welcome to my corner of the automotive world! I'm Mandy Lawson, better known as mandla85, and I'm absolutely obsessed with everything related to cars and motorsports.

I love diving into the world of automotive engineering and design, exploring the latest trends, and uncovering the stories behind the machines. Email / Facebook
