00:00:40,960 –> 00:00:44,239
okay so some specs for this car this has

15
00:00:42,960 –> 00:00:47,840

22
00:01:00,000 –> 00:01:05,519
i’m gonna show you around the car first

23
00:01:03,600 –> 00:01:06,840
okay so this is the front of the hyundai

24
00:01:05,519 –> 00:01:08,720
kona

25
00:01:06,840 –> 00:01:12,960
[Music]

26
00:01:08,720 –> 00:01:16,240
you can see the headlamps are really

27
00:01:12,960 –> 00:01:17,840
very slim okay

28
00:01:16,240 –> 00:01:20,170
you know even your fog lights are bigger

29
00:01:17,840 –> 00:01:22,640
than your headlamps

30
00:01:20,170 –> 00:01:25,600
[Music]

31
00:01:22,640 –> 00:01:27,600
this has the active air vents by the way

32
00:01:25,600 –> 00:01:31,280
i don’t know whether you guys can see

33
00:01:27,600 –> 00:01:34,159
it’s inside okay active event similar to

34
00:01:31,280 –> 00:01:35,680
like some bmw models where it opens and

35
00:01:34,159 –> 00:01:37,680
closes

36
00:01:35,680 –> 00:01:39,920
as you are driving along depending on

37
00:01:37,680 –> 00:01:41,520
whether you need the ventilation or you

38
00:01:39,920 –> 00:01:45,040
need the aerodynamics

39
00:01:41,520 –> 00:01:47,920
all right so this is the 18

40
00:01:45,040 –> 00:01:49,200
inch rims on the hyundai kona the design

41
00:01:47,920 –> 00:01:50,640
is very nice

42
00:01:49,200 –> 00:01:52,320
all right just overall the car i think

43
00:01:50,640 –> 00:01:56,000
it looks pretty stylish

44
00:01:52,320 –> 00:01:59,040
i would say it’s a stylish looking car

45
00:01:56,000 –> 00:02:01,360
alright so this is the back of the

46
00:01:59,040 –> 00:02:06,320
hyundai kona

47
00:02:01,360 –> 00:02:09,840
all right let me show you the

48
00:02:06,320 –> 00:02:09,840
boot space

49
00:02:11,200 –> 00:02:15,830
there’s a tire repair kit there

50
00:02:14,239 –> 00:02:18,640
and

51
00:02:15,830 –> 00:02:22,400
[Music]

52
00:02:18,640 –> 00:02:26,400
361 liters of boot space with the seats

53
00:02:22,400 –> 00:02:28,640
folded up and about 1143

54
00:02:26,400 –> 00:02:31,440
liters with the seats folded down okay

55
00:02:28,640 –> 00:02:35,519
so you can fold down the rear seats

56
00:02:31,440 –> 00:02:37,360
using this lever here

57
00:02:35,519 –> 00:02:39,040
just push that down yep just like that

58
00:02:37,360 –> 00:02:42,000
and then you can

59
00:02:39,040 –> 00:02:42,000
take this out also

60
00:02:42,879 –> 00:02:46,160
yeah you can take off this puzzle shelf

61
00:02:44,720 –> 00:02:49,519
as well

62
00:02:46,160 –> 00:02:52,560
okay just like that and

63
00:02:49,519 –> 00:02:54,640
let me get that out of the way yeah

64
00:02:52,560 –> 00:02:56,000
so you can see there i won’t say it’s

65
00:02:54,640 –> 00:02:58,159
very big

66
00:02:56,000 –> 00:02:59,440
but for the size considering the size of

67
00:02:58,159 –> 00:03:02,250
the car i think

68
00:02:59,440 –> 00:03:03,280
it’s all right okay let me

69
00:03:02,250 –> 00:03:05,360
[Music]

70
00:03:03,280 –> 00:03:06,959
close this this doesn’t have the

71
00:03:05,360 –> 00:03:08,000
electric tailgate so you have to close

72
00:03:06,959 –> 00:03:12,159
it manually

73
00:03:08,000 –> 00:03:17,040
all right let’s take a look at the

74
00:03:12,159 –> 00:03:19,760
rear seats so just now jj tried

75
00:03:17,040 –> 00:03:20,800
sitting inside um it’s not the most

76
00:03:19,760 –> 00:03:23,920
spacious

77
00:03:20,800 –> 00:03:24,799
rear seats so as you can see for me i

78
00:03:23,920 –> 00:03:27,840
have

79
00:03:24,799 –> 00:03:30,799
just nice one knuckle of space

80
00:03:27,840 –> 00:03:32,400
okay one knuckle of uh you know knee

81
00:03:30,799 –> 00:03:36,480
room here

82
00:03:32,400 –> 00:03:39,519
kate room yeah just a little bit of

83
00:03:36,480 –> 00:03:42,879
just a little bit of hit room here

84
00:03:39,519 –> 00:03:46,239
all right the good thing is

85
00:03:42,879 –> 00:03:49,200
oh the good thing is

86
00:03:46,239 –> 00:03:50,959
the center transmission tunnel isn’t

87
00:03:49,200 –> 00:03:52,720
that tall with this being a front wheel

88
00:03:50,959 –> 00:03:53,920
drive car so yeah i don’t expect it to

89
00:03:52,720 –> 00:03:56,239
be that tall so

90
00:03:53,920 –> 00:04:01,439
you do get some space here to put for

91
00:03:56,239 –> 00:04:04,720
the middle passengers to put your feet

92
00:04:01,439 –> 00:04:06,560
yep and this is the front of the car i’m

93
00:04:04,720 –> 00:04:09,439

94
00:04:06,560 –> 00:04:11,439

95
00:04:09,439 –> 00:04:14,319

98
00:04:14,879 –> 00:04:24,160
switch off the engine first okay

99
00:04:19,199 –> 00:04:24,160
and then i’m gonna switch it on hold on

100
00:04:26,840 –> 00:04:32,639

101
00:04:29,680 –> 00:04:34,479

114
00:04:58,240 –> 00:05:01,520
a hard plastic and it feels shallow when

115
00:05:00,560 –> 00:05:03,360

look a bit more premium than you know

131
00:05:30,080 –> 00:05:34,800

[Music]

220
00:09:14,240 –> 00:09:20,800
glove compartment

221
00:09:17,440 –> 00:09:22,640

222
00:09:20,800 –> 00:09:25,440
bit more on the smaller side

00:09:22,640 –> 00:09:25,440
okay yeah

224
00:09:25,680 –> 00:09:29,600
so after this uh we’re gonna be taking

225
00:09:27,519 –> 00:09:31,600

226
00:09:29,600 –> 00:09:33,600
about how this car performs on the road

227
00:09:31,600 –> 00:09:34,959

230
00:09:36,640 –> 00:09:38,880

you can open it and close it just like

232
00:09:42,320 –> 00:09:44,240
that

233
00:09:42,950 –> 00:09:47,330
[Music]

234
00:09:44,240 –> 00:09:49,120
okay and then this one is manual

235
00:09:47,330 –> 00:09:50,640
[Music]

236
00:09:49,120 –> 00:09:53,120
all right so let’s go for a drive in

237
00:09:50,640 –> 00:09:54,880
this hyundai kona um

238
00:09:53,120 –> 00:09:57,120
for me personally this is the first time

239
00:09:54,880 –> 00:09:58,080
i’m in the car but jj has been driving

240
00:09:57,120 –> 00:10:00,880
this car

241
00:09:58,080 –> 00:10:02,320
for the past few days so what are your

242
00:10:00,880 –> 00:10:04,800
thoughts on the car so far

243
00:10:02,320 –> 00:10:06,399
uh i think it’s pretty good uh for 1.6

244
00:10:04,800 –> 00:10:08,079
it feels quite strong and

245
00:10:06,399 –> 00:10:09,920
did bring a hybrid it saved quite a lot

246
00:10:08,079 –> 00:10:12,240
of petrol yep and

247
00:10:09,920 –> 00:10:15,600
even in city driving i’m getting about

248
00:10:12,240 –> 00:10:17,760
17 18 km per liter official figures for

249
00:10:15,600 –> 00:10:19,839
official fuel consumption figures for

250
00:10:17,760 –> 00:10:21,839
this car is about 23.3 kilometers per

251
00:10:19,839 –> 00:10:23,360
liter so if you are getting 1718 in the

252
00:10:21,839 –> 00:10:26,320
city i think that’s quite

253
00:10:23,360 –> 00:10:27,839
good yeah as you can tell like from

254
00:10:26,320 –> 00:10:29,680
start moving off it’s

255
00:10:27,839 –> 00:10:32,560
very good yeah very quiet very quiet

256
00:10:29,680 –> 00:10:35,680
very smooth yep

257
00:10:32,560 –> 00:10:36,560
okay signal is on the left that takes a

258
00:10:35,680 –> 00:10:39,040
lot to get used to

259
00:10:36,560 –> 00:10:40,320
yep i think it’s compared to previously

260
00:10:39,040 –> 00:10:43,360
uh

261
00:10:40,320 –> 00:10:44,320
i’ve tested the uh the venue oh hyundai

262
00:10:43,360 –> 00:10:46,240
venue

263
00:10:44,320 –> 00:10:48,480
the suspension for this feels much

264
00:10:46,240 –> 00:10:49,680
smoother the more compliant is it yes

265
00:10:48,480 –> 00:10:51,760
okay

266
00:10:49,680 –> 00:10:53,560
so it has two variants the base variant

267
00:10:51,760 –> 00:10:57,880
which is at uh

268
00:10:53,560 –> 00:10:59,360
118 000 yup and the sunroof variant at

269
00:10:57,880 –> 00:11:01,839
128 000

270
00:10:59,360 –> 00:11:03,920
yep so the sunroof variant comes with

271
00:11:01,839 –> 00:11:07,360
well the sunroof of course

272
00:11:03,920 –> 00:11:07,360
it’s both 4.6 meters

273
00:11:07,600 –> 00:11:13,200
and electric seats of course yep not

274
00:11:10,640 –> 00:11:15,360
not actually seats only available in

275
00:11:13,200 –> 00:11:16,959
sunroof variants

276
00:11:15,360 –> 00:11:19,920
sunroof variant also comes with some

277
00:11:16,959 –> 00:11:22,880
extra safety features

278
00:11:19,920 –> 00:11:23,680
so how do you feel about the power i

279
00:11:22,880 –> 00:11:27,360
just

280
00:11:23,680 –> 00:11:29,519
just flooded for the first time let me

281
00:11:27,360 –> 00:11:31,760
give you a bit more time to try a few

282
00:11:29,519 –> 00:11:34,480
more let me floor it a couple of times

283
00:11:31,760 –> 00:11:35,360
to get a real feel of the car but so far

284
00:11:34,480 –> 00:11:37,360
i think

285
00:11:35,360 –> 00:11:39,440
the leather on the steering wheel is

286
00:11:37,360 –> 00:11:43,040
really nice to hold

287
00:11:39,440 –> 00:11:43,680
so that’s one the first thing i notice

288
00:11:43,040 –> 00:11:46,480
it’s

289
00:11:43,680 –> 00:11:47,200
quite comfortable the material itself is

290
00:11:46,480 –> 00:11:49,920
quite good

291
00:11:47,200 –> 00:11:51,519
not like uh the material you get in some

292
00:11:49,920 –> 00:11:53,360
cheaper cast

293
00:11:51,519 –> 00:11:55,040
you wanna tell us a bit more about the

294
00:11:53,360 –> 00:11:56,959
features of this car first it has some

295
00:11:55,040 –> 00:12:00,160
safety features and stuff right

296
00:11:56,959 –> 00:12:02,639
uh yeah so the 1.6 sunroof variant

297
00:12:00,160 –> 00:12:04,160
comes with a bunch of safety features uh

298
00:12:02,639 –> 00:12:07,120
lane keeping assist

299
00:12:04,160 –> 00:12:11,040
uh forward collision uh avoidance yep uh

300
00:12:07,120 –> 00:12:13,440
rear cross traffic

301
00:12:11,040 –> 00:12:14,800
oh yeah all of those safety features

302
00:12:13,440 –> 00:12:17,120
appear on the heads-up display

303
00:12:14,800 –> 00:12:18,800
yeah that’s i personally love a heads-up

304
00:12:17,120 –> 00:12:19,760
display especially the speedometer uh

305
00:12:18,800 –> 00:12:21,519
one thing i want to point out the

306
00:12:19,760 –> 00:12:23,680
heads-up display is a bit low

307
00:12:21,519 –> 00:12:25,360
uh compared to some other cars so you do

308
00:12:23,680 –> 00:12:27,040
have to your eyeballs have to like

309
00:12:25,360 –> 00:12:29,440
travel down a bit you see here

310
00:12:27,040 –> 00:12:31,040
once i display too high it goes out of

311
00:12:29,440 –> 00:12:33,200
range already

312
00:12:31,040 –> 00:12:34,399
so even with the max settings it’s a bit

313
00:12:33,200 –> 00:12:37,360
low

314
00:12:34,399 –> 00:12:38,000
yeah because it has to display within

315
00:12:37,360 –> 00:12:40,800
this plastic

316
00:12:38,000 –> 00:12:41,760
piece so it’s here i don’t know whether

317
00:12:40,800 –> 00:12:45,519
you can see you know

318
00:12:41,760 –> 00:12:48,160
you can see okay okay i need to adjust

319
00:12:45,519 –> 00:12:48,160
my seat here

320
00:12:49,530 –> 00:12:54,880
[Music]

321
00:12:51,680 –> 00:12:56,720
sunroof yeah just a small small uh

322
00:12:54,880 –> 00:12:59,120
thing on a point the hazel display is a

323
00:12:56,720 –> 00:13:01,970
bit low other than that it’s okay even

324
00:12:59,120 –> 00:13:03,040
after i adjust it okay

325
00:13:01,970 –> 00:13:06,240
[Music]

326
00:13:03,040 –> 00:13:07,920
uh what else comes with

327
00:13:06,240 –> 00:13:09,600
uh wireless charging yep comes with

328
00:13:07,920 –> 00:13:13,760
wireless charging for your phone

329
00:13:09,600 –> 00:13:15,519
also uh apple carplay and android auto

330
00:13:13,760 –> 00:13:16,959
yeah this is not the wireless one right

331
00:13:15,519 –> 00:13:20,130
now

332
00:13:16,959 –> 00:13:22,240
for the 8-inch infotainment

333
00:13:20,130 –> 00:13:24,880
[Music]

334
00:13:22,240 –> 00:13:26,160
pretty responsive engine then this is in

335
00:13:24,880 –> 00:13:28,880
eco mode yeah

336
00:13:26,160 –> 00:13:29,200
quite responsive the low end torque is

337
00:13:28,880 –> 00:13:31,200
there

338
00:13:29,200 –> 00:13:32,800
like when you step on it it will take

339
00:13:31,200 –> 00:13:34,480
off you know right yeah

340
00:13:32,800 –> 00:13:35,839
but again it’s only both of us in the

341
00:13:34,480 –> 00:13:39,120
car so

342
00:13:35,839 –> 00:13:40,959
uh it’s a six-speed dct yeah

343
00:13:39,120 –> 00:13:42,399
if you shift it to the right spot for

344
00:13:40,959 –> 00:13:46,240
spotlight and they have

345
00:13:42,399 –> 00:13:50,000
uh pedal shifters on the wheel

346
00:13:46,240 –> 00:13:51,680
drive wise um the engine is pretty quiet

347
00:13:50,000 –> 00:13:55,519
of course it’s a hybrid

348
00:13:51,680 –> 00:13:57,920
low end top is okay now we are going up

349
00:13:55,519 –> 00:13:59,519
a slope

350
00:13:57,920 –> 00:14:01,199
we are still quite good low end top is

351
00:13:59,519 –> 00:14:03,199
still quite good the engine is quite

352
00:14:01,199 –> 00:14:06,000
responsive

353
00:14:03,199 –> 00:14:07,600
when i’ve been driving i felt like it is

354
00:14:06,000 –> 00:14:09,120
powerful for 1.6 yeah

355
00:14:07,600 –> 00:14:11,279
and responsive even though you think

356
00:14:09,120 –> 00:14:12,800
like a hybrid is

357
00:14:11,279 –> 00:14:16,160
there’s that kind of lag when you’re

358
00:14:12,800 –> 00:14:18,560
taking um on the pedal

359
00:14:16,160 –> 00:14:20,079
with most hybrids more electric but this

360
00:14:18,560 –> 00:14:23,440
one is very very responsive

361
00:14:20,079 –> 00:14:25,920
even in eco mode yeah which is kind of

362
00:14:23,440 –> 00:14:26,800
uh the same feeling i had with the venue

363
00:14:25,920 –> 00:14:29,760
very responsive

364
00:14:26,800 –> 00:14:30,880
but the venue of course is a petrol 1.6

365
00:14:29,760 –> 00:14:31,519
the steering wheel is also quite

366
00:14:30,880 –> 00:14:33,279
sensitive

367
00:14:31,519 –> 00:14:35,199
like you know you make small adjustments

368
00:14:33,279 –> 00:14:36,959
right and the car will respond you see

369
00:14:35,199 –> 00:14:38,959
like what i’m doing now

370
00:14:36,959 –> 00:14:41,199
yeah so oh yeah one thing i want to

371
00:14:38,959 –> 00:14:44,240
point out because the engine is so

372
00:14:41,199 –> 00:14:46,959
quiet you get more road noise

373
00:14:44,240 –> 00:14:47,360
so it’s quite apparent in this car not

374
00:14:46,959 –> 00:14:50,000
some

375
00:14:47,360 –> 00:14:50,800
not a deal breaker but you do like

376
00:14:50,000 –> 00:14:54,959
notice it

377
00:14:50,800 –> 00:14:58,800
when you are when you are driving on

378
00:14:54,959 –> 00:15:02,000
you know slightly rougher roads yeah

379
00:14:58,800 –> 00:15:02,639
like now i think i think it has decent

380
00:15:02,000 –> 00:15:05,680
insulation

381
00:15:02,639 –> 00:15:08,000
yeah yeah insulation is quite

382
00:15:05,680 –> 00:15:08,000
decent

383
00:15:08,800 –> 00:15:13,839
so uh overall thoughts for this car um

384
00:15:12,320 –> 00:15:17,120
i mean nice car to drive very

385
00:15:13,839 –> 00:15:18,959
comfortable power for 1.6 engine is okay

386
00:15:17,120 –> 00:15:20,800
uh quite low and torque is quite good

387
00:15:18,959 –> 00:15:23,040
high-end top mid to high end

388
00:15:20,800 –> 00:15:24,839
um is about average it’s about what

389
00:15:23,040 –> 00:15:26,959
you’d expect from a 1.6 liter

390
00:15:24,839 –> 00:15:27,920
engine but it’s very quiet because it’s

391
00:15:26,959 –> 00:15:29,759
a hybrid

392
00:15:27,920 –> 00:15:31,120
um features wise quite good as well the

393
00:15:29,759 –> 00:15:32,880
safety features that you get with this

394
00:15:31,120 –> 00:15:35,759
car you know your lane departure warning

395
00:15:32,880 –> 00:15:37,360
blind spot monitoring and uh and and

396
00:15:35,759 –> 00:15:40,160
also your infotainment android

397
00:15:37,360 –> 00:15:41,600
auto and apple carplay quite uh nice

398
00:15:40,160 –> 00:15:43,440
features to have

399
00:15:41,600 –> 00:15:44,959
ventilated seats yeah ventilated seats

400
00:15:43,440 –> 00:15:46,639
also charging port yeah wireless

401
00:15:44,959 –> 00:15:48,560
charging for your phone also very very

402
00:15:46,639 –> 00:15:49,920
nice features to have uh

403
00:15:48,560 –> 00:15:51,600
ventilated seats is not something you

404
00:15:49,920 –> 00:15:52,320
get in a lot of cars also so this is

405
00:15:51,600 –> 00:15:54,240
something

406
00:15:52,320 –> 00:15:56,000
that makes this car stand out a bit more

407
00:15:54,240 –> 00:15:58,399
however i do have to point out that

408
00:15:56,000 –> 00:15:59,440
in the rear the space could be a bit

409
00:15:58,399 –> 00:16:01,600
better

410
00:15:59,440 –> 00:16:03,120
i’m not saying that you can’t fit adults

411
00:16:01,600 –> 00:16:05,680
in the back you can

412
00:16:03,120 –> 00:16:06,480
but i i just feel like it could have

413
00:16:05,680 –> 00:16:09,040
been

414
00:16:06,480 –> 00:16:10,320
slightly more spacious in terms of the

415
00:16:09,040 –> 00:16:12,480
uh knee room

416
00:16:10,320 –> 00:16:14,240
okay because if you have a like taller

417
00:16:12,480 –> 00:16:15,120
driver then your rear passengers won’t

418
00:16:14,240 –> 00:16:17,680
have any

419
00:16:15,120 –> 00:16:18,720
uh space in the rear already so like for

420
00:16:17,680 –> 00:16:21,040
us we are about one

421
00:16:18,720 –> 00:16:22,000
seven five around there at one seven

422
00:16:21,040 –> 00:16:24,160
five

423
00:16:22,000 –> 00:16:26,320
centimeters tall so for us it’s actually

424
00:16:24,160 –> 00:16:28,160
okay but taller

425
00:16:26,320 –> 00:16:29,759
passengers and drivers you may need to

426
00:16:28,160 –> 00:16:32,079
adjust a little bit

427
00:16:29,759 –> 00:16:33,600
um boot space also given the size of

428
00:16:32,079 –> 00:16:36,560
this car not too bad

429
00:16:33,600 –> 00:16:38,560
um i think it could be a bit better but

430
00:16:36,560 –> 00:16:39,440
again the car isn’t very big to begin

431
00:16:38,560 –> 00:16:41,279
with

432
00:16:39,440 –> 00:16:43,120
the deal breaker for some people would

433
00:16:41,279 –> 00:16:46,639
be the price okay because this car

434
00:16:43,120 –> 00:16:47,120
is this sunroof variant costs about 128k

435
00:16:46,639 –> 00:16:49,279
correct

436
00:16:47,120 –> 00:16:50,480
yeah yeah so it’s actually more

437
00:16:49,279 –> 00:16:54,079
expensive than some of

438
00:16:50,480 –> 00:16:56,560
its rivals like the mazda cx-30

439
00:16:54,079 –> 00:16:58,480
the kia niro hybrid almost the same

440
00:16:56,560 –> 00:16:59,920
price as a subaru forester the latest

441
00:16:58,480 –> 00:17:02,720
subaru forester

442
00:16:59,920 –> 00:17:04,559
so and the forester is you know it’s a

443
00:17:02,720 –> 00:17:07,919
much bigger car than this

444
00:17:04,559 –> 00:17:09,520
so it’s it may be a bit difficult to

445
00:17:07,919 –> 00:17:12,480
justify the price tag

446
00:17:09,520 –> 00:17:14,480
given the size of the car unless you are

447
00:17:12,480 –> 00:17:17,760
really into like safety features

448
00:17:14,480 –> 00:17:19,919
and stuff then yeah i think uh this car

449
00:17:17,760 –> 00:17:23,039
will be suitable for young families

450
00:17:19,919 –> 00:17:25,679
especially say around early to mid 30’s

451
00:17:23,039 –> 00:17:27,280
because starting out the space behind

452
00:17:25,679 –> 00:17:30,960
the features are great

453
00:17:27,280 –> 00:17:32,960
it looks pretty slick

454
00:17:30,960 –> 00:17:34,400
but for the size behind if you’re just

455
00:17:32,960 –> 00:17:37,200
firing kids i think it’s

456
00:17:34,400 –> 00:17:38,640
just nice for adults maybe not too

457
00:17:37,200 –> 00:17:41,200
comfortable in the long run

458
00:17:38,640 –> 00:17:42,320
yeah probably yeah i this car needs a

459
00:17:41,200 –> 00:17:44,400
bit more knee room

460
00:17:42,320 –> 00:17:46,480
that’s how i put it yeah unless you know

461
00:17:44,400 –> 00:17:48,559
everyone in the car is shorter than 1.7

462
00:17:46,480 –> 00:17:50,000
i think should be okay other than that

463
00:17:48,559 –> 00:17:51,360
yeah i think the price is the biggest

464
00:17:50,000 –> 00:17:53,280
you know could be a deal breaker for

465
00:17:51,360 –> 00:17:54,160
some people because in this small suv

466
00:17:53,280 –> 00:17:56,720
segment

467
00:17:54,160 –> 00:17:57,760
you can get a lot of uh there’s a lot of

468
00:17:56,720 –> 00:17:59,760
options okay

469
00:17:57,760 –> 00:18:01,200
and you can even like what i mentioned

470
00:17:59,760 –> 00:18:03,200
just now it’s almost the same price as a

471
00:18:01,200 –> 00:18:04,400
forester which is a full-on suv

472
00:18:03,200 –> 00:18:06,320
and you know it’s more expensive than

473
00:18:04,400 –> 00:18:07,280
the outlander which is also a full-on

474
00:18:06,320 –> 00:18:10,480
suv

475
00:18:07,280 –> 00:18:13,679
so you probably have to you know really

476
00:18:10,480 –> 00:18:16,720
you must really really like this car

477
00:18:13,679 –> 00:18:19,840
for you to be able to justify the price

478
00:18:16,720 –> 00:18:20,960
but other than that yeah uh you know

479
00:18:19,840 –> 00:18:22,480
it’s a it’s a good car

480
00:18:20,960 –> 00:18:25,200
i mean the features and all that yeah

481
00:18:22,480 –> 00:18:28,080
it’s a quite a good package i would say

482
00:18:25,200 –> 00:18:28,960
minus the price yeah anything else you

483
00:18:28,080 –> 00:18:31,200
want to add on

484
00:18:28,960 –> 00:18:32,559
this no i think that’s it okay yeah
