MOTORING NEWS - Toyota's Hilux is a perennial favourite with South Africa's buyers with a long, unbroken run as top seller according to the National Association of Automoble Manufacturers of SA (Naamsa). If one has a yearning for one of these favoured double cabs, the new generation of Hilux is affordable as a pre-owned model.
We drove the Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 4x4 in automatic version for a week and absolutely nothing caught the bakkie off-side.
This 2018 Hilux has done a mere 9 000km and the automatic gearbox is an absolute pleasure.
Autodealer drove mostly around town, so the consumption by the petrol engine was higher than one would find on the open road without stop-start driving. The consumption hovered around 8-litres per 100km, which is impressive for the power and willingness of the Hilux.
"The potential buyer will have the best of both worlds with efficiency and impressive power on tap," says sales executive Mafa KaMgenge. "The bakkie is also spotless inside and out and the double cab provides ample space for the driver and passengers."
The Hilux is priced at R499 900 and offers the peace of mind customers associate with pre-checked vehicles from Carpointe.
Carpointe is positioned as the premium non-franchised used car dealership, based at Tavcor George.
The dealership has a flexible range of products to suit the need of motorists. Highly reassuring is the vehicle integrity check including mileage, service history and ownership verification as well as undergoing a thorough 80-point check and a stringent reconditioning process.
The dealership has the backing of the Tavcor Motor Group and an experienced and motivated team.
Buying a car is a huge investment so ensuring one gets the best deal means a visit to Carpointe makes good sense.
