Mazda: The Ultimate Demo Cars for Sale this February

Mazda: The Ultimate Demo Cars for Sale this February

Japanese automaker Mazda has a strong foothold in South Africa. It’s a brand instantly recognisable for its innovative technology and stellar reputation. Their range tends to hold value more successfully than other brands in the market.

With new, used, or exceptional demo cars for sale, you are guaranteed to make a smart investment. But what are your options when shopping our extensive range of Mazda’s high-quality cars?

Mazda CX-3: Crossover Excellence

Smaller, compact SUVs are always in demand due to their appeal factor. Take the Mazda CX-3, a worthy competitor in the segment that blends style and responsive handling well.

This iconic, nimble-sized SUV comes in four variant grades to choose from, in addition to manual and automated options. These cars produce a reasonable amount of power at 115 kW and 206 nm of torque and can reach an average fuel economy rate of 7.4 L/100 km. Features such as keyless entry, a multi-function steering wheel with audio controls, push-start ignition, and a trip computer all add a level of convenience and support to your drive.

One word that comes to mind when reviewing this crossover is "agile". It gives you smooth driving and excellent handling—both essential for bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Mazda CX-5: Dynamic Opulence

Mazda has done well to cater to the wider market of consumers because not everyone is looking for a smaller-sized SUV. The Mazda CX-5 is the ideal solution for families who need more space and versatility.

The range carries five variants that are available in manual and automated transmission. Additionally, there are also FWD (front-wheel drive) and AWD (all-wheel drive) options to shop according to your needs. Base models are equipped with a 2.0L petrol engine, which can achieve a notable 6.9L/100km fuel consumption rate.

The interior cabin of this marvel is in a class of its own. Leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, dual-zone air-conditioning climate control, rear seat armrests, and rear USB charging ports are just a handful of features to look forward to.

There is a sense of refinement with the CX-5 that you will not easily find with mid-sized SUVs. With elegant interiors, modern exteriors, and practicality at the forefront, it proves to offer an elevated driving experience compared to most.

Mazda CX-60: Larger Than Life

Most of us have become accustomed to bigger-range SUVs, which are bulky and cumbersome. The brand has worked hard to change perspective with its large yet sleek-designed SUV, the Mazda CX-60.

It is available in three variants, with 2.5L and 3.3L engine options. The range also caters to consumers across different lifestyles, with RWD (rear-wheel drive) and AWD options. Interestingly enough, SUVs are also characterised by petrol, diesel, and hybrid fuel types.

When it comes to a car this size, features can be dismal. Attention to detail is primarily focused on space. However, the CX-60 is equipped with supportive features that allow for a well-rounded safety suite. These include a reverse camera, a passive collision signal, blind-spot monitoring, and a rear cross-traffic alert.

The CX-60 is made for driving and is only improved with its off-road capabilities, incredible space, and convenient features. All of these make for an enjoyable drive, regardless of distance or road.

Mazda has secured itself as a brand to watch, with constant developments to deliver vehicles to consumers that are a cut above the rest. The CX series of SUVs in our demo cars for sale range can perfectly cater to every consumer, giving you innovation, reliability, and affordability all rolled into one.

The perfect journey awaits in Mazda with our incredible line-up of demo cars for sale. Book a test drive today!

The Numbers Behind the Kia Sonet For Sale's Efficiency

The Numbers Behind the Kia Sonet For Sale's Efficiency

People shopping for SUVs look for 3 things: performance, fuel economy, and versatility. Although price points play a role in purchasing decisions, we’ve found that once people have their minds set on a car, that’s their new vehicle.

One of these popular cars that keeps flying off our showroom floors across our nationwide locations is the exceptional Kia Sonet for sale. It is a highly economical buy for several reasons, but fuel efficiency is likely to rank much closer to the top.

With that in mind, we share our insight with you on the numbers for the much-anticipated 2024 Sonet.

Breaking Down the Numbers

The updated Kia Sonet has been given a new lease on life with its contemporary facelift. But this refreshed SUV has more than just good looks, with 3 new powertrain options. These include the conventional manual, the new iMT (intelligent manual transmission), and an innovative DCT (dual-clutch transmission) option.

The varied drivetrains make a major difference in terms of fuel efficiency. For example, the brand claims 19.20 km (kilometres per litre) with the petrol DCT engine and 22.30 kmpl with the diesel iMT one.

Expectations of the Kia Sonet 2024 Model

This subcompact SUV has undergone significant work, bringing the sluggish design to 2024. It has LED lighting changes, an updated alloy wheel design, and a sleeker-looking front grille.

The interior has also had some replacements, including a brand-new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster. Ambient lighting elevates the cabin experience, along with an electric sunroof that adds a touch of exclusivity to the Sonet.

Kia produces cars that are affordable, reliable, and efficient. It’s an ethos that carries through every line: hatchback, sedan, and SUV. The 2024 Kia Sonet for sale only makes for a more compelling case. The facelift brings a minimalistic yet appealing design to the forefront while maintaining relatively low fuel consumption rates. It is the added value that many customers, such as yourself, are likely looking for.

Car Models Bowing Out in SA – A 2024 Farewell

All good things must come to an end, and this is no different with some of the most legendary cars in the country. Think of the greats, such as the incredible Kia Rio for sale and the Nissan Almera, to name a few.

Several models available in South Africa have decided to call it a day. But it’s not all bad news because you can still shop for these incredible vehicles at even better prices with Motus Select.

Let's explore a select few of these cars while shopping.

The Kia Rio

With 10 variants in the range, the Kia Rio has secured its iconic status in South African automotive history for years to come. As a highly affordable hatchback that appeals to consumers across the spectrum, the latest generation offered 1.2L to 1.4L engines and an 8.0L fuel consumption rate.

Depending on the model of your choice, you will find features such as reverse cameras, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), and rain-sensing wipers that add an innovative touch to every journey.

The Nissan Almera

The Nissan Almera was truly the king of the sedans on our roads. The last generation included two variants separated by automated or manual transmission. The 1.5-litre petrol engine also produced a decent 6.0-litre/100-kilometre fuel economy.

Fitted with BA (Brake Assist), parking sensors, and a luggage capacity of 490L, you will find a functional car packed with features to impress.

The Suzuki Vitara Brezza

An economical wonder that has been a firm favourite within our market is the Suzuki Vitara Brezza. A low price tag was only one of the benefits of the production rack. But you can shop this SUV in around six variants, all equipped with a 1.5-litre petrol engine and manual or automatic gearbox options.

Whether in the city or out in the countryside, you will find that it has highly supportive features. These include cruise control, 60:40 split rear folding seats, and brake assist.

The Ford Ecosport

The Ford Ecosport is a subcompact marvel in the SUV market. It’s a dependable car that does more than just get you from point A to point B. The range carried eight variants at its peak, all fitted with a 1.5-litre petrol engine. 

Drivers can choose between automated or manual options, assured that they will still achieve a respectable fuel economy rate of 6.3 litres per 100 km. Lastly, features to sway your decision include power steering, rear parking sensors, or USB portability, depending on the model year.

While it’s goodbye for these highly celebrated names in the game, we do not doubt that their demand will only grow in the second-hand sales market. They are appealing brands that offer the everyday consumer exceptional value.

3 Ways to Show Your Demo Car Some Love This Month

3 Ways to Show Your Demo Car Some Love This Month

It’s the month of love here at Motus Select, and the only thing better than our prices is our range of good-looking demo cars. It’s the financial investment of a lifetime because you are purchasing an almost new car with minimal mileage and without the initial depreciation drop.

But much like any other car purchase, your vehicle only drives well for as long as you take care of it. So why not show it some attention and care this February with our expert tips below?

 

  • Give It The Works

 

If a car detailing service is within your budget, then you should go ahead and splurge. It’s well worth the price, knowing that your new car is being cleaned thoroughly with meticulous attention to detail.

If not, though, a good old car wash will do. It allows you to empty the back seats, throw away piled-up receipts, and give it some shine.

 

  • Out with the Old, In with the New

 

It certainly has been a rainy summer the last few months—so much so that we do not doubt that your windscreen wipers have been put to the test. Now is the perfect time to replace your blades and ensure you have optimal vision through rain, shine, or hail.

 

  • Renew, Refresh, Rotate

 

High-performing tyres are dependent on regular maintenance checks and rotations. You need to ensure that your tyres are filled up to the correct pressure, which will distribute weight evenly. This ensures appropriate wear and tear on your wheels. Poorly worn tyres pose a serious threat in slippery conditions due to insufficient traction.

These relatively easy and doable tips can help you make the most of your purchase. Be it an exceptional find from our selection of demo cars to our affordable pre-owned vehicles, maintenance makes a difference. 

With us playing Cupid, finding your dream car to take care of is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Explore our range of specials and demo cars to fit your budget and lifestyle.

  • Smart Key Card Access

 

One of our favourite features of the Renault Kiger for sale at Motus Select is the smart key card access technology. It allows for hassle-free handling without you fumbling around looking for your outdated, bulky key.

This smart key card will minimise your efforts to unlock and lock your doors, allowing for smoother entry. It’s especially helpful if you’re wrangling kids through a busy parking lot or are carrying several heavy grocery bags to pack away.

Cute Meets Cool: Kia's Car Lineup

Cute Meets Cool: Kia's Car Lineup

From hatchbacks such as the Kia Picanto for sale to their zesty sedans to their spunky SUVs, Kia has a car for everyone. When it comes to car shopping, Kia simply outruns the best in almost every category. They have mastered consumer appeal by manufacturing vehicles that are always in demand.

Below, we have compiled a list of 5 of the most popular Kia cars in South Africa that you should consider.

Perfectly Punchy: Kia Picanto

The Kia Picanto, nimble in size but mighty in style and value, is one of the leading hatchbacks in the country. It has a whopping 11-variant range, all equipped with petrol engines that vary from 1.0L to 1.2L. With most hatches, transmission options can be limited, but not with the Picanto, which is widely available in manual and automated modes, catering to your specific driving preferences.

What sets it apart from its counterparts in the same segment is that it comes packed with personality. A defyingly low fuel consumption rate of 5.8 L/100 km will lighten the load on your wallet. Its features include an 8-inch touchscreen display, multi-function steering wheel controls, and a 60:40 rear fold split function to add more space.

The Charismatically Conventional: Kia Pegas

Conventional is not always as drab or outdated as it’s made out to be. Certainly not with the Kia Pegas. It’s a modern-looking sedan that gives you more space than your usual city car. Although it may not be the first car from the brand that comes to mind, it should be.

The three-variant range is equipped with 1.4-litre petrol engines as a standard, along with automated and manual transmission options. It also manages a reasonable fuel consumption rate at 5.7 litres per 100 km. Additionally, it impresses even more with features such as its remote central locking, parking assist sensors, ABS (Anti-Locking Brake System), and EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution).

The Infinitely Sleek: The Kia Seltos

As we move through the range, you will find that the mid-sized to large SUVs are undeniably suave. The Kia Seltos is a fine example of this with its meticulously crafted body, smooth curves, and ergonomically designed interiors. It is the ideal starter SUV to invest in if you are looking for more than just additional legroom.

The Seltos is available in several variants, with base models equipped with a 1.6L engine. Fuel types include petrol and diesel, with manual, automated, and DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) gearboxes to choose between. Moreso features such as its drive mode selector (Normal, Eco, Sport), LED daytime running lights, and reverse camera make the Kia Seltos a worthwhile purchase.

The Effortlessly Spirited: Kia Sportage

Kia continues its winning streak with its large SUV offering, in the shape of the Kia Sportage. Energetic and dynamic, this vehicle demands attention with its sculpted physique and challenges most of the heavyweights in its respective segment.

The range is fitted with a 1.6L engine as a standard, but this differs between LX, EX, and GT-Line models. It reaches maximum torque at 320 Nm/2000 rpm and has a 54-litre fuel tank. Kia has also equipped all variants of the Sportage with a 7-speed DCT gearbox. 

But where this marvel truly excels is in its features, all of which make it a winner in our books. These include technology such as smart cruise control, wireless charging ports, ambient mood lighting, and a panoramic dual-curved display on some models. The Sportage’s features make those long road trips during our warm summers bearable.

The Radiantly Robust: Kia Sorento

To conclude our list, we take a look at the bold challenger, the Kia Sorento. It’s very capable and is ready to tackle all roads. Built with space in mind, the Sorento is more than just a weekend car; you can use it daily because of its practicality.

Neatly packaged into a 7-seater, it is undoubtedly big but still efficient. The range carries four distinct variants, is fitted with a 2.2L engine and DCT gearbox, and is available in different drivetrains. The Sorento boasts an incredible time of 10.7 seconds to go from 0 to 100km. Lane Keep Assist, smart entry, push-start ignition, and its rotary gear shift dial are just some of its highlights.

Kia produces cars that have the “it factor". Their range has a commanding presence but remains approachable. Ultra-modern, irresistibly cool, and with a minimalistic yet appealing style, their cars are made to fit into any lifestyle. Your perfect match is only a few clicks away, and the Kia Picanto can be yours today, direct from the best with Motus Select.

Discover South Korean charm with the Kia Picanto for sale and more of their show-stopping range. Find yours in-store or online.
