A strong and characterful reliable family car
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
