CarMag is one of the top car magazines in South Africa. It is the go-to-place to check the latest car models released by auto makers. You will find valuable reviews on a range of cars from BMW to Toyota or Audi to Volvo. Whether you are looking to buy a SUV, sedan, sports car, hatchback, 4-wheel drive, 2-wheel drive or AWD, you should first watch a test drive on CarMag or even book a road test on a model of your choice.
CarMag is a shopping guide for vehicle purchasers, allowing you to get prices and specifications on all the latest models, including the best cars to buy based on a number of criteria. It can be difficult to choose a car, and CarMag avails all the necessary information to come to an informed decision. While you are subscribed to the car magazine, you will get the latest news and trends in the automotive industry, including events and motor shows around the world, starting with South Africa.
The best thing that can happen to a CarMag reader is not only getting the best purchase in the car market, but there is an opportunity to win a prize while you are reading a monthly copy of your magazine. The CarMag competition gives you a chance to win a dream car e.g. a Toyota Fortuner worth R454,000 or a Mercedes Benz C-Class Cabriolet. If a car is not one of the prizes on offer, you have a chance to win other equally attractive prizes such as a ticket to a Motor Show, a trip to Dubai, a trip to F1 Grand Prix, gift boxes, holiday vacation, Smartphone or brand new premium Yokohama tyres. This is just an example of prizes that you can win among the more than 60 competitions that CarMag has hosted in the past.
Let’s take a look at some of these competitions:
Win a Ticket to Cape Town Motor Show
Provided that there is a motor show in the New Year calendar, you can be one of 10 people that will be lucky enough to win a ticket to the Cape Town Motor Show. This gives you a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the unveiling of new cars on the market. You will be able to watch new vehicles in action and even get a test drive. Who knows, you may love what you see and go home driving after paying an initial deposit. Tickets to CT Motor Show are only R200, but this is a big sum of money to some people. By entering this competition, you will save R200. The ticket is for two people, so you can choose somebody to go with.
Win a Ticket to Johannesburg International Motor Show
This gives you a chance to attend the Johannesburg Motor Show, but you also get a cash prize and one year subscription to CAR magazine.
Win a Movie Ticket
Who doesn’t love going to a Movie Theatre? Of course, modern technology has blessed us with home theatres for personal entertainment. If you have an LCD flat screen or laptop, all you need to do is insert a flash drive and you will be watching movies all day, without leaving the doorstep. But it gets boring with time. Who wants to spend all day locked up in a dark room alone?
Even though Movie Theatres or Cinema Houses are old fashioned, it never gets old to go out once in a while to watch an interesting movie with others. The experience of a packed house while watching a blockbuster movie is simple unbeatable. It’s an opportunity to satisfy the need for mingling with the crowd, and feel like a social human being.
CarMag offers readers a chance to win a ticket to a movie. It’s a double ticket for two people, and 75 prizes are offer. Depending on the competition, you might win a movie ticket to a theatre in Cape Gate mall, Gateway Mall or Mall of Africa. All winners will be served with cool drinks and popcorn during the movie. For a good viewing experience, each person gets some cinema glasses to put on.
Win a Car Book
If you love reading CarMag, then you are already a bookworm. The difference is that you are reading a topic that you are passionate about. If you love cars, then it’s more likely that you would love to read real stories of car drivers, racing tales, championship journeys and behind the scenes incidents.
One of the best books that you might want to read as a car racing fan or car enthusiast is Behind The Chequered Flag, by Henry Schultz. By joining the CarMag competition, you will get a chance of owning this book, and save R675 in the process. Three winners will be selected from the draw.
Win a Trip to Dubai
Dubai is one of top tourist destinations in the world. Everybody who has visited the place or seen pictures on TV or internet will tell you that it’s a beautiful city, which also happens to host the world’s tallest building, the magnificent Burj Khalifa. The 830 metres high tower which hosts offices and hotel rooms is a marvel to watch. You can actually climb to the highest floors and watch the wide cityscape. For those who love astronomy, there is a telescope that allows you watch distant stars at night. Dubai is the residence of the rich, architectural splendour and modern affluence.
You can win a trip to Dubai by participating in the CarMag competition. The total value includes air tickets, meals, accommodation and expenses for two people.
Win a Car
One of the perks of watching the CarMag competitions page is that you can find opportunities to win a car, it might be a Toyota Fortuner, Mercedes Benz C-Class Cabriolet or any type of model. Winning a car is the best experience you can ever have because you will be the owner of the car for a long time. Holidays and cash prizes vanish within a few days but a car is for the long haul.
Win a Holiday at a Resort
Most people love holidays but holidaying can be costly if you don’t plan well. That’s why a lot of people in the low and middle income groups opt for cheap holidays. You now have a chance to get a dream holiday by entering a CarMag contest. All expenses are paid by the promoter, including selected meals. You might win a holiday to a lodge, game park or hotel resort. The holiday is for two people, so you should invite a friend or partner to join you.
Win a Smartphone
It’s exciting to win a good looking Smartphone that you would have saved money to buy. In the CarMag contest, you can win an LG G5, Samsung Galaxy or other high end touchscreen. If you have an old model, winning the latest touchscreen is like an upgrade.
Win Yokohama Tyres
This is a prize that fits the car magazine niche. If you would like to win tyres from brand names such as Yokohama, Hankook, Firestone and Goodyear, then you will be happy to join the tyre competition.
CarMag 60 Years Anniversay Competition
