FISHY TACHOS

Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

What is the point of fit­ting tachome­ters to, prob­a­bly, every car on sale? Only a few years ago they were found only in sports cars and grand tour­ers.

Now they are in the cheap­est Suzuki and Hyundai. Why? How of­ten would the driver of an econ­omy hatch ever look at it, let alone know what it means? A few years ago the same econ­omy boxes sported lu­di­crous spoilers. Th­ese, thank­fully, are now thin on the ground. Will tachos go the same way?
