"Is it a truck? Is it a golf cart? Is it a bathtub on wheels? It's whatever you want it to be. The Kalahari is a super-lightweight off-road utility vehicle used by the French army, which possibly explains why they're always so late to everything."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.


The Canis Kalahari is a small, hardtop utility and off-roading truck featured in the Beach Bum Update for Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, with a topless variant available after the Last Team Standing Update is installed.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Kalahari is based on 1968-1987 Citroën Méhari. The headlamps seem to be derived from the BMW E30 (E32, E34). The vehicle is based on the original French model rather than the U.S. model.

The vehicle is depicted as a small, lightweight vehicle with thin wheels with white caps. Multiple variants of the vehicle exist, including a version with a vinyl rooftop with borders on the sides and rear, as well as a version without; one with roof frames and one without.

The vehicle uses four circular headlamps and its tail light design is identical to that of the Mesa. The text "Canis" can be seen on both vehicle's ends, as well as the manufacturer's logo on the back. Its bodywork is quite unique compared to other Canis vehicles, as it is not a Jeep-based vehicle. For the enhanced version of the game, the Kalahari receives a unique beige-colored interior, comparable to that of the Bodhi.

In the Southern San Andreas Super Autos description, it is stated that the Kalahari is still being used by the French armed forces.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Kalahari performs quite well, having a nice top speed and acceleration, it also fairs well off road. The car is powered by a modeled turbocharged Inline-4. While this vehicle has good acceleration, its top speed is not up to par when it comes to competing against other faster vehicles. Furthermore, its thin tire profiles makes it less desirable for off-roading purposes. The Kalahari is great for doing stunt jumps as its incredibly light weight allows it to travel great distances in the air. It is also very nimble due to its size and thin tires.

Special Variants

This section contains insufficient information and is considered as a Section stub. You can help the GTA Wiki by expanding it as much as you can.

In the enhanced version, pre-modified Kalaharis may spawn in beach areas, like the Bifta. They usually spawn with accesories intended for off-roading, including custom off-road tyres. Aside from the color schemes, at least one example has a unique customization set, including a spare tyre on the hood.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V

Original Version
  • Available at the player's garage.
Enhanced Version

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Available in a hardtop variant on Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $40,000 after the Beach Bum Update is installed, and a topless variant on the same website for $51,000 after the Last Team Standing Update is installed.
  • Can be rarely spawned at the beach in North Chumash, usually pre-modified. Entering the vehicle will result the player being immediately kicked out of the car and locking it, preventing access. (Enhanced version)

Trivia

General

  • The name refers to the Kalahari desert and thus it implies that the truck has good off-road abilities (although its in-game handling proves otherwise). Interestingly enough, the Citroën Mehari was sold in a color called Kalahari Beige.

Bugs/Glitches

  • Originally, any Kalahari purchased before the High Life update could not be sold.
    • This was fixed in the Bikers update.
