JMC offers an alternative for affordable bakkies
Since the emrgence of Vigus in South Africa in 2014 , it has made a significant inroads in the affordable bakkies market. Not many thought it will stand the test of time but it has done exactly that. It will not be complete to talk about bakkies in South Africa and not mention Vigus.
The Vigus bakkies also available in China (where it is built), Australia, Chile and Uruguay, as well as a number of other markets.
The word, Vigus, is derived from vigour, which embraces endurance, vitality, strength and the ability to endure… so it’s the perfect name for a light commercial vehicle which boasts these properties, says the automaker.
The range starts from R201 880, and the most affordable double cab priced at R282 880.
For R348 990, adventurous types can get behind the wheel of a four-wheel-drive double cab with a modern, 2.4-litre common rail turbodiesel engine and generous comfort and convenience equipment. It has a 225mm of ground clearance and 290Nm of torque, adding to its off-road credentials.
Move up to the SLX flagship and you get a touch-screen and reverse parking sensors. It retains the same drivetrain, which means fuel consumption in the order of just 8.0-litres/100 km, says the automaker.
A total of seven derivatives make up the Vigus range and irrespective of engine type, trim level of body style, it is a smart choice for those after a bakkie that does it all with a little extra vigour.
