GWM Steed 5 Double Cab 2.5 TCi 4X4


Rating: 5/5

Can a Chinese bakkie hold its own against Japanese and German cars?

Perhaps one should ask if a Japanese 4x4 double cab is really worth R100 000 more than a Chinese one.

We found the new, prettier Steed competent and hardy.

Parts of its interior do look copied from Japanese rivals but mechanically it feels industrial and indestructible.

It’s more workhorse than lifestyle vehicle but it does that job brilliantly, especially at its price.

PRICE R217 990

ENGINE 2,5-litre 4-cylinder turbodiesel; 80 kW; 300 Nm

PERFORMANCE 0-100 km/h and top speed not available; 11 litres/100 km (estimated)
