Peugeot Unveils Revamped Landtrek Bakkie: SA Price, Details

Peugeot South Africa introduces its newest bakkie to the local market.

Peugeot has launched the latest iteration of its Landtrek bakkie in South Africa, entering the 2022 model in the One-Ton Pick-Up segment of South Africa — a highly-competitive area for SA car manufacturers.

According to Peugeot, when designing the new Peugeot Landtrek, particular attention was paid to “reliability, robustness and ease of repair, which are among the main expectations of Pick-Up customers.”

The new Peugeot Landtrek is available in 4×2 and 4×4 diesel Double Cab, meeting both professional and family needs, along with offering up to three tons of towing capacity and a payload that exceeds one ton.

In terms of comfort, Landtrek comes with state-of-the-art on-board technology, advanced adaptability and SUV-like driving comforts.

A complete range of customised accessories for the new Peugeot Landtrek will be available in the Peugeot network, a key feature in the Pick-Up segment. In total, more than twenty-eight dedicated accessories will be available.

Exterior design

The exterior design integrates into the brand’s current range, incorporating all its codes: vertical grille with the Lion in the centre and vertical LED light signatures.

The interior features a 10-inch HD screen at the top of the dashboard, setting the tone for an interior that has been designed to include many of the features found on the other Peugeot models, including toggle switches that provide access to all the functions.

The modularity of the rear bench seat in the Landtrek Double Cab adds versatility to the cabin, with the possibility of folding the backrest in 60/40 or 100%. In addition, the rear seat cushions can also tip-up in a 60/40 split to allow for numerous and flexible loading configurations. When folded down, the backrests can support a load of up to 100kg. In addition, two ISOFIX fasteners ensure the safety and docking of child seats.

The new Peugeot Landtrek also features the latest generation comfort equipment from the brand’s SUVs: advanced connectivity, automatic dual zone air conditioning, 10-inch HD touch screen compatible Apple CarPlay /Android Auto and 10 GB hard drive.

Safety is ensured by six airbags and an Electronic Stability Programme that includes Hill Descent Control that keeps the vehicle at a very controlled speed allowing the driver to concentrate solely on steering, Hill Start Assist – helps with uphill pull-offs – and Trailer Swing Control that acts automatically as soon as the trailer veers out of line. Drivers can also count on the Lane Departure Warning on the range-topping 4Action.

The headlamps are equipped with LED light signatures on both the front and rear. The Peugeot Landtrek is fitted with rear reverse cameras and parking sensors. The off-road camera (in the passenger rear-view mirror) and 360-degree panoramic vision support the driver when negotiating obstacles or narrow lanes on the 4Action 4×4, further aided by additional front obstacle sensors.

Engine

The 1.9-litre turbodiesel develops 110kW thanks to a variable turbine geometry with 16 valves. With a generous torque of 350Nm Landtrek adapts to the prevailing terrain through Manual, Sport, or Eco modes.

Up to 235mm of ground clearance equips the new Peugeot Landtrek with all the necessary assets of the Double Cab market, be it two- or four-wheel drive.

For 4×4 versions, the rear differential is equipped with a mechanical rear differential lock providing extra traction when one wheel slips. The Borg-Warner Transfer case allows for easy transfer between 2-high, 4-high and 4-low modes with the simple turn of the rotary switch.

Pricing:

• Allure Double Cab 4×2 — R579,900
• 4Action Double Cab 4×4 — R669,900

Managed running costs

The Peugeot Landtrek is covered by a five years/100 000 km Warranty and Service Plan with maintenance intervals every 10,000km with a view to optimising reliability and running costs, key elements for professionals and buyers of Pick-Ups.
