2018 GWM Steed 5 looks great!

2018 GWM Steed 5 looks great!

I have sung the GWM Steed’s praises in the past. It is, without a doubt, the best value for money one-ton bakkie on the market.

Many potential buyers have looked on the Steed with disfavour because GWM is not a well-known brand in South Africa and because it was under marketed for many years in this country. The Steed has also been criticised for its old school looks.

However, my business has used to own a Steed for five years and, 230 000 hard-worked kilometers later, the bakkie was still in good nick when we traded it in.

Also, having driven various versions of the Steed, I can honestly say that it is an easy and comfortable vehicle to use.

Now, thanks to the 2018 facelift, the Steed has a more aggressive stance and better looks. The front grill and bumper are more pronounced resulting in a contemporary look.

The colour coded side mirrors and additional fog lights as well as the reshaped side panels make this a handsome vehicle.

The new look extends to both the single and double cab.

The rugged but user friendly interior and the power train have remained unchanged.

At R184 900 for the 2018 GWM Steed 5 single cab, this is very good value for money.

To test drive this vehicle, visit the GWM and Haval showroom at 770 Govan Mbeki Avenue, in Port Elizabeth, or call them on 041 402 9000.
