The JMC Vigus is the latest in a growing fleet of low-cost utes from Asia aiming to steal sales from traditional workhorses like the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, joining China’s Foton Tunland and Great Wall V200/V240, and India’s Mahindra Genio and Tata Xenon. The diesel engine is also a 2.4-litre four-cylinder unit, with peak outputs of 90kW at 3800rpm and 290Nm between 1600-1750rpm. A five-speed manual is the only available transmission. Combined cycle fuel consumption for the petrol is 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres in 4x2 form and 12.0L/100km in 4x4, while the diesel uses 9.0L/100km (4x2) and 9.1L/100km (4x4).
The JMC Vigus is 5325mm long, and 1828mm wide and 1710mm tall in 4x2 spec and 1905mm wide and 1835mm tall in 4x4 spec. All variants ride on a 3085mm wheelbase. The 4x2 has a 205mm ground clearance, while the 4x4 rides slightly higher, offering 224mm of clearance. The JMC Vigus gets only basic safety equipment, offering ABS, EBD and two front airbags, but missing out on potentially life-saving features such as electronic stability control, side and rear curtain airbags, and a three-point seatbelt for the middle-rear seating position.
The commandingly impressive design combines elegantly fluid shape with exquisite functionality.
