Mahindra Genio Bakkie & LCV Review
Buy a Mahindra Genio Bakkie and you are without a doubt getting more than you expected in every way. It is tough, reliable, comfortable to drive, offers excellent fuel consumption and is above all one of the best priced bakkies and LCV’s found on South African roads today. To add to all of this it is also extremely versatile and can be used for anything from the school run, to dropping off more than a ton of heavy equipment at a building site. In other words, in this reviewer’s eyes the Mahindra Genio is probably one of the best multipurpose vehicles sold in South Africa, if not the world.
The Genio is not bad looking either, in fact it knocks many new car buyers’ preconceptions of the brand for a six and has helped Mahindra re-establish itself as a leading automotive brand with innovative style. All Genio variants are powered by the respectable mHawk Euro II Turbo Diesel, so you are guaranteed reliability and low fuel consumption.
Genio Single Cab Review
Mahindra understands exactly what it is that people want when they invest in a Genio Single Cab, and this workhorse is always ready to work hard and long hours on any South African road. Because of this the power plant in the Genio can be expected to offer you an extended engine life and deliver up low maintenance performance (and costs) for years to come.
Genio Double Cab Review
When it comes to the Mahindra Genio Double Cab you’ll always be a clear winner in the cabin space stakes. Its exceptionally generous cabin space and semi-bucket seats with multi-adjust feature help to make even the longest drives so much easier and pleasurable for the driver as well as the passengers.
