Slew of new Mahin­dras com­ing

The Witness - Wheels - - TRANSPORT -

David Makuna, Mahin­dra re­gional sales man­ager, told Wheels a slew of new Mahin­dras mod­els are on their way to SA, from a two- seater “jeep” to an A- seg­ment pas­sen­ger car as well as the long- awaited Tivoli. And are th­ese In­dian ve­hi­cles any good? As bricks are the tough­est load for a bakkie, Wheels asked a well- known brick­maker on the South Coast how he rates his three Mahin­dra bakkies. He told Wheels they can­not be beaten. “We drop 1,5 tons of bricks on them five days a week and then de­liver all over the steep hills of South Coast. They just keep on go­ing, with the old­est one now hav­ing 80 000 km on it,” said the owner.
