The Steed legacy of toughness continues with the addition of the striking Steed 5E. With sophisticated and upmarket new looks, a dramatically refined interior with all the modern conveniences and two trim levels to choose from, the Steed 5E is your all-in-one travel companion. The 5E is aimed at customers looking for a leisure-oriented double-cab bakkie that offers exceptional value and quality at a very attractive price.
But that’s not all… when it comes to the Steed 5E, beauty truly resides in the details – notice the integrated indicators in the side mirrors and the aerial that has been embedded in the upper right-hand corner of the windscreen.
All Steed 5E models boast comprehensive colour coding, 16-inch alloy wheels and front and rear fog lamps. Flagship Xscape variants further add factory fit side steps and a rear roll bar.
POWER AND ECONOMY
For the petrolheads out there, HAVAL’s proven 2,4-litre (4G69) four-cylinder engine is on offer. It delivers 93 kW of power and 200 Nm torque. A slick five-speed manual transmission is employed to send power to the rear wheels. This 2,4-litre engine consumes 10,7 L/100 km on the combined cycle.
HAVAL’s very popular and in-house developed 2,0-litre VGT (variable geometry turbo) diesel powerplant that punches out a strong 105 kW and 305 Nm of torque is also available. This engine is exclusively mated with a six-speed manual transmission. The 2,0-litre VGT engine boasts exceptionally low fuel consumption of only 8,3 L/100 km.
All Xscape models boast the added convenience of a rear differential lock.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
To make sure your pride and joy doesn’t find a new owner without your consent, central locking and an immobiliser are standard fitment.
COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT
The Steed 5E is available in two trim levels, SX and Xscape. The SX boasts a comprehensive standard specifications package that includes climate control, a radio with USB/Aux support, remote audio controls, electric windows/mirrors, heated rear window and rake-adjustable steering wheel.
In addition to the above, the flagship Xscape derivatives further add leather upholstery and a comprehensive, full-colour touch-screen audio system with USB/Aux, Bluetooth and SD card functionality.
