The rugged new automatic Mahindra Karoo 4×4, with its 2.2 litre turbo diesel has been making noises in the offroad/farming/game viewing scene of late, making serious inroads into the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger stranglehold on the Southern Hemisphere bakkie/pick-up market.

But can it compete on-road, in terms of functionality, technology, refinement and overall comfortable motoring? Road Ahead editor Greg Simpson takes a trip around the beautiful Cape Peninsula to find out. Only on Africa Sideways. #mahindrakaroo #karoo4x4 #mahindra4x4review
