Buying the Right SUV in South Africa
If you are looking to buy an SUV in South Africa, the first step is choosing the manufacturer. Unfortunately, most of the established manufacturers’ SUV options are expensive and offer unnecessary features that you pay a lot for. With SUVs becoming the popular choice for daily people carriers, a need arose for an affordable option, seeing that these vehicles in most cases no longer require all those complicated off-road features that make them so expensive.
South Africa plays host to some challenging off-road trails and for those who want to venture on them, there are still heavy-duty SUVs available. However, not everyone has the driving skills to make the most of those features – or care to go off the beaten track. Therefore, the urban SUV comes to the rescue. With an efficient turbocharged petrol engine and a 4×2 drivetrain in either manual or automatic, the Landwind 5 SUV is one of the new breed of high-value, comfortable SUVs that you can now buy in South Africa.
The Landwind SUV takes the focus away from off-roading and puts it on comfort and daily functionality instead. This SUV is available in a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic drivetrain configuration. The three models in the range include the Flagship, which comes as standard with all the bells and whistles. The engine produces a satisfying 140 kW to get you where you need to go, with ample low-rev torque. As far as a daily driver goes, the Landwind is a comfortable choice for those who want to buy an affordable SUV in South Africa with good ground clearance and a 4×2 drivetrain.
The Landwind 5 SUV’s 4×2 layout is much lighter and the vehicle is therefore more economical to run than a hulking 4×4. A 4×4 drivetrain is ideal if you are going off-roading frequently, but the rest of the time, you are just dragging along all that unnecessary hardware that drives up the vehicle’s price and destroys your fuel economy. Now you can buy a value-for-money SUV in South Africa with a 190-mm ground clearance that can take on rough gravel roads, but with a 4×2 transmission. This is an ideal setup for the normal roads most of us use. It makes the Landwind 5 SUV the perfect alternative for those looking to buy a comfortable people carrier in South Africa at a great price.
