There is nothing on the market here that has all wheel drive, can tow my 1.2ton boat/trailer combo, can come close to 0-100 in 7.3s, can return 7.8L/100 in the city with a base price under AUD60,000!
Yeah I guess it sure does make more sense in other places. But here, still I can't see what the target is..
