Looking for a bakkie in the new year? Consider the Peugeot Landtrek

Key Pinetown Peugeot

Peugeot is no stranger to the bakkie segment, having launched a flatbed vehicle (derived from the 202) in the late 1930s. With the stiff competition today and the South African market more inclined to the mainstay bakkie brands - Key Pinetown takes a look at what makes the Landtrek stand out.

With a high beltline and ground clearance of up to 235 mm, the Landtrek can tackle wading of 600 mm, thanks to the 19-inch wheels. With all the fundamentals of the bakkie world, The Peugeot is also available in two engine options which are a 1,9-litre diesel delivering 110 kW of power and 350 N.m of torque and a turbocharged 2,4-litre four-cylinder engine with 154 kW of power and 320 N.m of torque.

The 1,9 comes standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the 2,4 has the option of either this or auto. The entry-level versions of the Landtrek come ready with rear-wheel drive, while the more pricier derivatives will include all-wheel drive, with 4H and 4L modes for improved traction on the more difficult terrains.

The Landtrek boasts one of the most comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing cabins in the bakkie segment. The electrically-adjusted leather seats are well-bolstered (with lumbar support) and offer supreme levels of comfort – ideal for those long journeys. Keeping the family entertained is a seamless experience, with an easy to navigate touchscreen featuring integrated GPS, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Monitor safety from the comfort of your Landtrek, including features such as: ABS with EBD; electronic stability control with traction control; brake assist; hill descent control; front and rear park distance control sensors; lane-departure warning; lane-keeping assist; and more.
