    The prestige SUV market would seem to be where it is at currently. Last night I was driving down Burwood Highway into the city in moderate traffic. I commented to my wife about the other cars on the road immediately around us. There were 2 Audi Q5's, a Q7, a Porsche Cayenne, a Jaguar whatever their SUV is called, a Lexus something-or-other and a Volvo XC90. All less than 12 months old. And we weren't even in Toorak !
    F-pace has certainly started strong (relatively). Q5 and Q7 are pretty ubiquitous up here too. I just found the van so easy to use, that it really highlighted the compromises of the SUV. The space was massive, and the vid about the catboat is basically me pushing the power door buttons on the remote for ten minutes.

    Re: SUV or Minivan (Kia Sorento vs Kia Carnival)

    I own an SUV and if I had to choose between owning another SUV or a minivan I'd take the minivan for sure, I found the carnival I had earlier on in the year to be brilliant and the kids oved the massive amount of room it had. Plus it was comfortable to drive and because it was a diesel brilliant on fuel.

    If you dont need the utility then get a sedan or coupe.

    If you dont need the seating of a sedan or coupe get a roadster.

    If that's still too much get a bicycle.


    Unless it's all about image which negates utility.
