Best SUV To Buy In South Africa
It would be an understatement to say that SUVs in South Africa are a popular category. We’re a hybrid, rainbow nation that loves our indoors-to-outdoors, urban to countryside shifts — and that’s all before lunch on a Saturday. We are the perfect paradox, appreciating the spills and frills on offer at the mall until the car’s packed and we head out to Dullstroom, Parys, the Sani Pass or the Kruger.
What is the best SUV to buy in South Africa?
If you were looking to make a comparison of SUVs in South Africa, you would find a whole menu praising a different assortment of options (depending on who’s writing that list, of course). As far as the Subaru way of life goes, our contribution to this category makes us a formidable competitor in the market with three models that are beyond-confident of meeting the brief for the best SUV to buy in South Africa.
SUV Cars To Consider In South Africa
Subaru XV: If small family adventures are your lifestyle vibes, then the Subaru XV might be just what you’re looking for. With superior handling in all-weather capabilities, this is one of the leading crossover cars available on the market with capabilities and high-tech features, earning itself the Wards Top 10 Best Interiors Award for quality finishes and user experience
Subaru Forester: A class-defining SUV for all seasons with both practicality and sporty aesthetics that delivers maximum traction in any weather or road conditions. This SUV makes easy work of slopes and inclines and manoeuvres itself out of a rut or two with ease.
Subaru Outback: Topping off our SUV category is the Outback, the most advanced, most capable and safest car in the brand’s history specifically designed to help you nurture your curiosity for new adventures. With its sleek interiors and technologically advanced capabilities — standard with this Subaru SUV — this is a top-class town car with rugged off-road readiness that puts you in the driving seat of your family’s adventures (of all shapes, types, interests and sizes).
As mentioned, life isn’t a one-size-fits-all, so whether your boot gets filled with Black Friday SALE items, camping gear, baby’s bags or your child’s science project and cricket kit, boot size is a priority to many! This is how our Subaru SUV models fare in boot space:
- XV: 385L boot capacity
- Forester: 505L (to three times that when the seats are folded down)
- Outback: 512L
As with any decision however, there are all sorts of things to consider. Budget (or take a company car allowance for example) would have a huge impact on the list. You might be making the decision for the car you can have rather than the car you want to have. But what are you getting, for what you’re paying for?
Subaru is a proud bastion of the harmonious achievements where innovation meets safety. With our award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist, Pre-Collision Braking System, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Say Warnings (for when you’re doing urban rather than out-of-town), you couldn’t be safer. And with our Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, you’re assured of the best possible ride quality through all kinds of conditions — all while keeping you and your family safe and comfortable. Isn’t that what you want from an SUV?
