2016 Bakkie Shootout

The only question we hear almost as frequently as ‘What is the best hatchback/sedan/sports car/bakkie?’ is ‘Please can you do more shootouts?’ There is something to be said for comparing vehicles from the same segment back to back, in order to form a more objective opinion but there are a number of challenges involved in setting up these shootouts. First of all you need to assemble comparable models simultaneously, then you need to gather up a group of seasoned road testers, which is seldom an easy task. You also need to devise a series of tests or evaluation criteria in order to compare apples with apples, so to speak. A grand undertaking to be sure but one whose end more than justifies the means, as we found out when we lined up four of SA’s top bakkie contenders.
