    Re: Fiat Panda......Why not??

    FROM.... R129 900.

    Would be interesting to see exactly what you get for that... and what extra costs are spooned on top.

    Re: Grenadier.... What do we know about it?

    One significant difference IMO is the solid axles and full time 4WD, with diff locks all round. Afaik Brandt is SFA and only option of rear diff lock.
