Buy a New SUV

New and Affordable SUVs

An SUV, or sports utility vehicle, is meant for people engaging in outdoor activities and sports and should be able to travel on bad roads and offer lots of loading space in the vehicle.

Although you can still buy a dedicated new heavy-duty, 4×4 SUV, the market has shifted to crossover SUVs – these are the ones offering you the traditional SUV size, space, and ride height, but without all the heavy and expensive 4×4 drive axles and dual-range transfer cases churning away underneath. Since a sports utility vehicle is designed to take people to interesting places, it should offer plentiful space in the interior and the boot should be decently large too, to cart along all your family’s holiday paraphernalia. Our new Landwind 5 SUV is available in a manual Lux, automatic Lux, and automatic Flagship model. The 4×2 drivetrain is all you’ll ever need for tackling bad gravel roads and ground clearance is on par with a full-size SUV at 190 mm. The manual transmission has six speeds for optimal performance and economy and the automatic is a modern, efficient 8-speed unit, giving closely spaced ratios and long-legged open-road cruising ability.

It is amazing just how efficient modern SUVs have become and engine downsizing has a lot to do with it. To this end, Landwind offers smaller, turbocharged engines that deliver the power of a larger engine, but not the poor fuel consumption. Coupled with the afore-mentioned new gearbox technology offering up to eight gears, fuel economy is vastly better than SUVs of old. The engine in our new SUV delivers 140 kW at 5500 rpm, with 250 N⋅m of torque being produced between 2800 and 4400 rpm.

Safety also plays an important role when you buy a new vehicle, especially a family car. Luckily, vehicle safety has progressed in leaps and bounds over the past few decades. Our Flagship model offers a complete suite of safety features that includes front and side airbags, ABS brakes with EBD, traction control, and dynamic stability control. Every Landwind is also fitted with remote-controlled central locking, electric windows and side mirrors, a power outlet in the boot to keep mobile devices charged on long journeys, an automatic window closer, a high-mounted central LED brake light, and an anti-theft immobiliser.
