Re: Hyundai Ute ?

Think it will be bigger than you think as when you look at the size of it compared with the car parking space it takes up a lot of room.
The rear like the front is heavily disguised so don't think it will be much like the old suby .

Are the stats right ?

Just wondering if the stats of most users online are correct or is there a possibility they could get corrupted somehow.

Asking the question as I find it a bit hard to believe the figure of 1281 on the 13 th of this month. :?

Any tech savvy input welcome .

After living with a V6 diesel for about 18 months I would not like to go back to a 4 cyl .

On a long run empty we're getting under 8L / 100km and fully loaded towing the camper 14.3 with power to spare so can't see why some would only
