GWM H5 Review
Living in Cape Town really is interesting. We get a real assortment of weather, from stunning warm winters days that could rival most European summers days, to the dreadful pouring with rain no end days. It’s the weekend, and it’s one of those miserable days in the Cape.
There are two options with the weather, we can stay home and watch movies until the kids are so bored they’ll welcome playing in the rain, or we can go out. I refuse to go to a mall on a rainy Saturday, it’s where the masses go to drive you nuts. But there is a 3rd option, you could go driving. And no, not driving on the road with all the idiots in the rain, I’m talking about muddy, wet, off road driving, which is exactly what we did with the GWM H5.
Kids in the back, and up the side of a mountain the H5 handled the muddy sandy track quite well. One short coming was the ‘road’ tires, but with some proper off road tires, the H5 would quite easily annihilate any obstacle in the way.
The space on the inside made sure the kids were quite comfortable, up front you have an elevated driving position, power steering, radio, CD, MP3, it’s pretty much a full house, but the most interesting feature is the rear view mirror that shows you or tire pressure and temperature.
