The Witness - Wheels - - TRANSPORT -

VE­HI­CLE safety is a top pri­or­ity for auto man­u­fac­tur­ers, and GWM is no ex­cep­tion.

As such, GWM South Africa is launch­ing a firm favourite with the public and top seller, the Steed 5 2.2 MPI 4x2, with added stan­dard safety fea­tures.

GWM’s best-selling bakkie, which has been around since the man­u­fac­turer opened its doors in South Africa in 2007, now comes with a Safety Ver­sion sin­gle and dou­ble cab, of­fer­ing dual airbags and ABS with EBD in ad­di­tion to its other stan­dard fea­tures.

On sale now, the GWM Steed 5 2.2 MPI SC and DC 4x2 Safety Ver­sion bakkies also of­fer power steer­ing, air-con­di­tion­ing, al­loy wheels, fog lamps, ad­justable seat belts, ra­dio with USB sup­port, im­mo­biliser, cen­tral lock­ing, lights-on warn­ing, heated rear win­dows and cup hold­ers in the front, and are pow­ered by GWM’s proven 2,2-litre petrol en­gine. Apart from these fea­tures, the GWM Steed 5 2.2 MPI Dou­ble Cab Safety Ver­sion boasts elec­tric win­dows and leather seats. For ex­tra as­sur­ance, a three-year/100 000 km war­ranty is in­cluded in the sales price of R177 900 for the Sin­gle Cab, and R204 900 in­clud­ing a five-year/100 000 km war­ranty for the Dou­ble Cab Safety Ver­sion mod­els. Two-year AA Road­side As­sis­tance comes stan­dard.

Whether cus­tomers choose the stan­dard or Safety Ver­sion, the Steed 5 2.2 MPI SC or DC re­mains ex­cel­lent value for money in its price seg­ment with low run­ning costs.

With the launch of the Safety Ver­sion mod­els, GWM hopes to con­tinue play­ing its part in road safety by of­fer­ing the South African public qual­ity ve­hi­cles that con­form to the high­est safety stan­dards. — Supplied.
