the C63 Estate is also nice.

 

So is the shooting brake CLA

 

I was puzzled why it's called a "shooting brake". Why go "shoot" the "brake" for haven's sake?

My curiosity got the best of me, and this is what Wikipedia has to say:

"Shooting-brake is a term for car body style which originated in the 1890s as a horse-drawn wagon used to transport shooting parties with their equipment and game...The term was used in Britain interchangeably with estate car from the 1930s, but has not been in general use for many years and has been more or less superseded by the latter term."

I’d find it to be more appropriate to term it as shooting cart or shooting carriage...

LOL yes! 

 

I use to drive one, found it a little unstable 


I recommend you G Class [laugh]

Wahahaha no thanks i not a fan of conti cars though...bad experience with costs of parts and durability with my kind of long distance driving- especially in SG's humid weather
The G class is a nice car but cannot and will never be able to afford [laugh]


is that your Levorg? Any review?

 

Yes thats my Levorg got it second hand!

 

Pretty stable and the 1.6T is rather muted (compared to your Forester xt lol) but i am happy with it for normal day to day driving 

with my kind of Uncle driving my one tank lasts me 620km - do note my driving is 80% expressway & 20% normal roads

Would be a great choice for elderly grandparents or parents since they always complain SUV too high seated, like need to climb one flight of stair to board. 

 

Good compromise between seat height, boot space, and great for kids too. Still love the big and fierce looks of SUV though, but will seriously contemplate an estate in terms of practicality and $$$.

After driving SUV during my road trip in Australia, now I know why people go for stationwagons. I made a mistake of going into a roundabout slightly too fast (40km/h), I thought I was going to flip the car. 

 

The body roll with the high ride height doesn't help. Lucky I didn't clip the curb else I will definitely flip. 

 

The Stationwagons that I think is well designed would be the VW Passat, Audi A4/RS4.

Most SUV in Singapore where got high seated.  

 

GLC has ground clearance of about 150mm.  Range rover ground clearance btw 170mm and 220mm.

 

Anyway, the best compromise is big MPV like Alphard/Veilfire.  Low ground clearance with high roof.

I agree! Thats why i got an estate

Anyway, the best compromise is big MPV like Alphard/Veilfire.  Low ground clearance with high roof.

 

I also agree with u however, u cannot compare Jap SUV against Conti SUV, the difference its like light and day lol

 

 

MPV's high clearance roof is a nuisance! when u are behind them u can't see the road ahead or make a pass
