How does the LC Cruise handle and perform as cheap cars for sale in Gauteng?

According to the aa.co.za, the 1 342 cc powerplant does a decent job of getting the vehicle up to speed and the cabin is reasonably spacious in front – however, very much less so on the back. “The five-speed gearshift is a little clunky, and the tall body leans a fair amount in the corners, but these things aren’t deal-breakers.”

Autoworld.co.za noted that the vehicle is easy to maneuver and can manage early morning traffic well, although they were skeptical about hitting the long road with it.

With good value for money and a cuteness factor to boot, why not give the Geely LC Cross a try as cheap cars for sale in Gauteng.
