The ML 350 is pretty quick too, but nowhere near as thirsty.

downside on subaru is cambelt is 12 items to change its like 2 engines you will pay 1200$ upwards for a correct job with coolant and all on a boxer subaru. " i always did wonder why it was so expensive till i got the parts and counted them all 750$ i paid for just parts. as where the punto was 15 euro for the belt. but yea you cant have it all as i pointed out above.

Suzuki Vitara AllGrip 1.4 turbo 6L/100km

intrade, Sep 10, 12:55pm
if i really need to overtake i just floor it look at the rev limmited i reved it to 7500rpm no problem no rev limmiter kicked in may not have one at all haha. its basically the predecessor of the uno in uno turbo-ie if you want to look up what they where ultra kamikaze machines
older cars especialy italian stuff burns oil as per normal. i recall we filled 1 liter every other week in the Fiat tempra wagon my mate had for carting 1 whole pallet with fold down bumper.

Jeep SRT. Two out of three aint bad.

cjohnw, Sep 10, 1:11pm
Our 2018 WRX is doing 8.5 - 9L / 100km.
Levorg would be fractionally higher.
Great wagon to drive.

you need to set the priority and then see where you want to compromise .
i know these people who want to buy new cars that only cost 2000$ and dont need servicing . Non of it exists but they keep asking me to tell them what to buy. priority is it must be save and reliable. i said you can only buy brand new. but but i only want to spend 2 grand . 2 grand is the 500$ boms from 1990s good stuff starts at least 6k + and at 12k you have a selection. and if it must be rliable and not need any repairs you only can buy new.
They think they can buy a bargain sell there pile of crap for the same money to somone else.
i said do you really think only you offloads his pile of crap for cheap.
but but you got to tell me if this 2500$ one is a good one.

Sounds like luver boy wants a house bus for the chicks, with a humungus cat diesel that will run on the sniff of the panty fumes.

So you will need something capable of towing your new upgraded boat then?

Surprised nobody has mentioned the Tesla Model X P100D.

0-100km/h in 2.8s, "Fuel" economy is 24 kWh/100 km.

Here is a video of a model X beating a Alfa Romeo 4C in a drag race (despite the model X towing another Alfa Romeo 4C on a trailer).

Quite expense though at $190k
