The memories of long weekends and holiday road trips seem more like a distant memory every day, and we’ve now transitioned back to school dropoffs, work commutes and traffic for another year.
Summer is the time of year when the family car is receiving a one of a kind workout; we’re off on the road to visit our friends and families or to take it on a camping adventure all while bringing the two kids, the animals, stacks of presents and eskies full of food.
We then return from our vacations a little stressed, maybe even looking for another holiday and realise that perhaps our choices in a car maybe lack in a few crucial areas.
That need for space, a vehicle adaptive to different driving or lifestyle conditions with long trip comfort essentially a great all-rounder for the whole family. Some unique requirements for that Australian driving experience.
