At Hatfield Motor Group, we are thrilled to be at the forefront of driving and servicing some of the best vehicles in South Africa.

Celebrating Remarkable Triumphs

South Africans have a deep love for bakkies, and this passion is unmistakably evident in the country's monthly vehicle sales figures. Bakkies dominate the market, with three out of the top five best-selling vehicles in South Africa being ladder-frame-based one-ton pickups. This trend extends to the best-selling passenger vehicle in the country, a position it has held for the last decade.

Given the undeniable popularity of bakkies in South Africa, it was only fitting to establish the prestigious South African Bakkie of the Year (SABOTY) competition. This competition aims to evaluate and assess the specific requirements, critical performance measurements, and capabilities expected from these vehicles, including off-road, advanced 4x4, and towing capabilities.

Hatfield's Winning Performers

In the inaugural 2023 SABOTY competition held at the Nampo Cape exhibition in Bredasdorp, the Volkswagen Amarok Panamericana 3.0 V6 TDI 4Motion emerged as the winner. This impressive bakkie, which was launched earlier this year, stood out in the eyes of the SABOTY jury, comprised of leading specialist motoring journalists and industry experts.

The Volkswagen Amarok Panamericana 3.0 V6 TDI 4Motion clinched the title with its remarkable towing capability and high-quality interior. It represents the pinnacle of performance and design, setting new standards in the bakkie segment.

Exceptional Value for Money

In the category of Best Value for Money Bakkie, the Mahindra Pik Up 2.2 S11 Karoo Storm secured the top spot. This outstanding bakkie not only offers great value but also exemplifies the commitment to delivering quality and affordability that Mahindra is known for.

At Hatfield Motor Group, we take immense pride in being associated with these exceptional vehicles and their achievements. We continue to uphold our commitment to providing the best possible service to our customers and remain dedicated to offering an extensive range of quality vehicles that cater to diverse needs and preferences.

We look forward to another year of remarkable success and invite you to visit our dealerships to explore our award-winning vehicles. Whether you're in the market for a Volkswagen, Audi, Ford, Mahindra, Mazda, Isuzu, GWM, Haval or Suzuki, we have the perfect vehicle waiting for you. Join us on this exciting journey, and let's drive excellence together!
