1992 Sao Penza 1.3i from UK and Ireland


A strong and characterful reliable family car



General Comments:

The Sao Penza is a really rare car. It is identical to the Mazda 323 1986-1989 model. Lasts forever, Mazda reliability. Built in South Africa, can be serviced at Mazda dealers. I used to have an F reg Mazda 323 and I liked the car so much that I bought a K reg Sao Penza Hatchback.

Highly recommended. Colour choice is limited to pinky red or light blue, unfortunately.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Depends how you have drove it over the years. If its mainly motorway miles then it will last a while yet I would expect. If its town and city roads then your lucky to have got that much out of it.

Why bothering buying a new car? Take a Mazda! It will last forever, in time it will become a family asset, from generation to generation!
