As bad as it has not come. Consumption is only a property of a car. The large four-wheel drive have also undisputed advantages: they offer plenty of space and comfort, provide a reassuring sense of solidity and security, and in winter to the kings of the mountains.

Here are the benefits of the gear on special. That is more connected than in a six-speed automatic transmission, does not interfere in appearance, because the shifting is very smooth.

The test car moved, the display screen to 2,320 kilograms, and thus exceeds the standard weight (2,099 kg) significantly, which the wealth of extras is due.
