SO, WHAT ABOUT A “FAUX-WHEEL DRIVE”?

Herald Sun - Motoring - - COVER STORY - JD

IF you don’t want to get off the beaten track but you still fancy the looks and com­fort of one th­ese three SUVs, you can save up to $10,000 by not opt­ing for all-wheel drive and set­tling for a slightly smaller petrol en­gine.

Front-drive is avail­able in the lower-grade Sportage SLi, pow­ered by a 2.0-litre petrol rather than the 2.4, from $33,990 plus on-roads.

The CX-5 Maxx Sport FWD, with a 2.0-litre in­stead of the AWD’s 2.5, starts from $32,790 plus on-roads.

The RAV4’s GXL front-driver, also 2.0 in­stead of 2.5 AWD, is from $31,990 plus on-roads.
