    It's not about racing others and winning any "battles". It's about enjoyment. Hard to explain if you're not passionate about driving. But less, the wallet does suffer..

    Diesel prices are catching up with petrol prices already.. it's reaching $1.2~/litre.
    non-turbo van usually drink more fuel

    kangoo, berlingo, partner should be around 15km/L or less

    fiat doblo and opel combo got super/turbo charger, fuel consumption can go as low as 18km/L, mine close to 19km/L liao, some pple can even hit 20km/L dont forget diesel is still around 50% cheaper than petrol, so that's another 50% gain in cost/km

    1.9L supercharger engine, very shiok when u can feel the boost at low rpm

    The turbo diesel cars have a lot of torque low down the rev...
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    But the problem with turbo diesel is that altho u get the torque earlier, you don't have anymore pull later on. Good for hauling goods, etc but bad for "having fun". You try to accelerate at speed and you won't get anyway quick, even if you downshift. Clarkson was trying to "race" with a turbo diesel Jag last week on top-gear. Seemed quite frustrating. LOL

    heard about jazz fuel efficiency. I think swift loses in that aspect. Any one who has a swift can comment? PLus i heard there are various model of swift that vary widely in terms of fuel efficiency.

    I must say i prefer swift's exterior to jazz. more the mini cooper kind

    How's the build quality on the swift? My dad's old Suzuki Grand Vitara was like built by fuzzy creatures from the jungle... Everything would break down/off. Like the handle to the boot can actually break off.. geez.. twice (after replacing the first one of course)!!
