Changan’s Double-Cab Range
South Africa has a unique and challenging business environment and economy. Besides these challenges, new vehicles – which every business needs – are very expensive. Commercial and industrial businesses have a hard time finding affordable transport vehicles. Some try to negotiate sponsorship deals with leading manufacturers – or they simply buy second-hand – to afford vehicles. Luckily, Changan SA has an affordable alternative to give you the most vehicle for your money – and it does not involve buying used!
The Changan Star III offers a viable platform for commercial and industrial light- to medium-duty transport. This platform offers three vehicle configurations and these are single- and double-cab variants, as well as a closed minivan model. The minivan is available with a 5-seat crew-cab layout or as a 2-seat panel van. However, if you want small trucks for your company, the single- and double-cab variants are ideal. With affordability being the focus at Changan SA, these vehicles offer basic and proven designs over bells and whistles; however, the LUX models can be great daily drivers as well.
When it comes to double-cab trucks and bakkies, there is a myriad of choices in South Africa – most of them large and expensive. This wide selection is a direct result of the sheer popularity of this type of vehicle here. Changan throws its hat in the ring as well with the Star III double-cab standard and LUX models. However, whereas a normal double cab’s rear wheel arches impinge on load space, the Star III has a flatbed with fold-away drop sides. This flatbed design is unobstructed and far more practical than a regular load bay with just one tailgate at the back. Best of all, the little truck can handle a total payload of up to 1 t!
The Star III double-cab truck can work hard all day and use little fuel with it. The 1,2-ℓ engine consumes only 7,8 ℓ/100 km, with a 40-ℓ fuel tank to avoid having to stop for fuel too frequently. It features a 5-speed manual gearbox with disc brakes at the front. The LUX model adds fog lights, air-conditioning, central locking, electric windows, and speakers to the standard double-cab truck’s specification. With excellent value thanks to extremely competitive prices, the Star III double-cab gives you brand-new bakkie at a low-low price.
