Something that many SUVs may face - big tire prices..

I recently caught up with a friend who bought a Scenic, and they gave him 20" rims. They look mighty impressive, but when he began looking for replacement tires, the prices gave him a heart attack. So he stretched out the life of his current tires, and is looking for cheap replacements. I advised him not to go too low, as those tires are what prevent him from having a bad accident.

No wonder some people resort to Chinese tires and more.. 

I also checked out a Suzuki S Cross - someone in my estate got one. turbo charged hybrid for 165k net, but I felt the interior wasn't as good as the Forrester or CX 5, and despite the turbo, it wasn't all that quick..

My 18s are around 200 plus each. Profile abit hard to find as I'm using higher performance type. But I don't think is very exp.

Scenic is using a very orbiang profile and very hard to find. Maybe that's why its exp. Can either change to a wider rim to fit in more common profiles.

Therock...

SuV for which demographic?

I saw a couple of Vitaras just now, i think better than S cross.

Senior boyfriend and girl friend and mature mummy drivers.

Suzuki should have the Vitara, Its better fitted than the S cross.

The Vitara of old was nice, with a ladder platform that can really go places

The last one was made in Hungary and if you are particular about fit and finish, even the Subaru XV will beat it hands down..

But in sg. The tipping point for EV is here already. All my friends going to get EV for their next car if possible. 

Prius looks great. But low roofline.

Saw a Comfort taxi using the new Prius. The design quite nice, but see use as taxi then not nice already. When use as PHVs, even not nice cos when you buy it, your car will be as a PHV regardless if it is or not.

Well I’m not perturbed. Mercedes are also used as taxi in Germany. People still buy. Just buy a different color. 
having it as PHV and taxi means parts supply galore. 
wonder this is the 1.8 or 2.0?

Thanks, so it's not from the AD... no wonder they were all silver color..

Borneo will supply ComfortDelgro (blue and yellow).

Other companies will likely take from PI.
