Due to our rugged landscape and fast paced cities, it’s no surprise that bakkies and hatchbacks rule our sales and our streets. Volkswagen, Ford and Toyota are 3 very popular South African household names that come a very long way and motorists have become accustomed to their reliability and loyalty over the years. In South Africa we actually boast a wide range of different types of vehicles, from SUV’s and 4×4’s to Sedan’s and mini-busses, but these are the three that have managed to steal our hearts.

The ever present Ford Ranger has become the go-to-bakkie for South Africans, its stylish body and rugged and tough exterior makes it a great candidate for our unpredictable South African roads. Although it’s built tough and ready for the bundus, it doesn’t mean that it’s lacking any of the modern technologies and conveniences that keep us motorists entertained and relaxed. The Ranger has the best of both worlds, its offers comfort and style as well as the ability to tackle difficult and bumpy terrain.

The Hilux flies the South African flag high as it dominates the unpredictable dunes in the Dakar Rally, and has won the trust of many locals throughout the years. The Hilux has become a well-known figure in the world of SA motorsports and rugby and has maintained a solid spot in SA’s top 3.
