Ford Everest 3.2 4WD XLT
Ford’s Everest is a spacious, well-specified and capable 7-seater variant of the locally-produced Ranger bakkie.

Isuzu MU-X 3.0 4WD
The MU-X is Isuzu’s first new offering since the Japanese marque became independent from the (now departed) General Motors in the South African market. The newcomer is effectively a Chevrolet Trailblazer under the skin, but has the D-Max’s bulletproof turbodiesel engine under its bonnet. Renowned for excellent after-sales service and reliability, Isuzu is also one of the most respected brands in SA.
