A Modern New Affordable SUV in South Africa Offers Unbeatable Value
All most people in South Africa want nowadays is an affordable SUV, but they just seem to be so expensive, don’t they? What if you want the expected comfort, safety, and security features but without the heavy all-wheel-drive systems and premium badging that only serve to drive up the price? Is there an affordable SUV in South Africa that does not leave you feeling short-changed? Yes, there is.
Landwind 5 AT Flagship
As the range-topping model of the Landwind 5 range, this is one of the most affordable luxury SUVs in South Africa. We recognise that the majority of people want the ride height, dirt-road ability, space, and dashing good looks of an SUV, but they have no need to do heavy-duty off-road work and they are, therefore, happy to forego a heavy and complicated all-wheel-drive system in exchange for the weight savings and efficiency gains. This added hardware blunts performance, increases fuel-consumption, and adds weight to your car. Our Flagship model makes use of an efficient 4×2 drivetrain with advanced electronic traction control and ESP to ensure excellent traction and stability, even on poor roads, and without the need for a 4×4 system.
All the Features are Standard
The Flagship offers all the features you would expect in a premium SUV. Safety features include four airbags, ABS brakes with EBD, height-adjustable seatbelts for five passengers, park-distance control, automatic window closer, and the afore-mentioned ESP traction and stability control. In terms of luxury, it is fully equipped too, coming as standard with leather trim on the multifunction steering wheel and seats, cruise control, stainless-steel pedals, an electric sunroof, a power outlet in the voluminous 855-litre boot, attractive 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 audio system, and electric windows and (auto-folding) mirrors. You can optionally specify a towbar and a GPS- and Bluetooth-enabled touch-screen multimedia system with integrated reversing camera.
The drivetrain is also thoroughly up to date in terms of technology and features. The engine is an efficient 2-litre turbocharged petrol unit with 140 kW and 250 N.m, driving through an advanced 8-speed automatic transmission that ensures refined, low-rev highway cruising. All of this is covered by a standard 3-year / 100 000-km warranty and 5-year / 100 000-km service plan for the ultimate peace of mind.
SUV ownership does not have to come with all the baggage and premium badging that only serve to make your ownership experience prohibitively expensive.
