Mark Ewings, 38, of Torquay in Vic­to­ria is a fa­ther of three and has owned two Ter­ri­to­rys in the last seven years.

‘‘They’re a bril­liant wagon, and the third row of seats comes in re­ally handy. I’m in­ter­ested to drive the new TDCi be­cause fuel econ­omy is, for my mind, the petrol model’s only weak­ness.’’

He drove the Ter­ri­tory TS TDCi, an all-wheel drive model like his Ghia. Straight away he no­ticed dif­fer­ences. ‘‘It’s not as snappy, is it?’’ Mark did like the Ter­ri­tory’s new­found re­fine­ment.

So, would he up­grade to a TDCi? ‘‘I don’t know. It’s a lot to ask an ex­tra $3000 when the fuel econ­omy would take years to make fi­nan­cial sense.’’
