Grunt my ride

Wheels (Australia) - - Head to Head -

Any par­ent out there fa­mil­iar with sprint­ing from one child’s sport­ing event to an­other will be pleased to know the Car­ni­val can com­fort­ably hold its own in the traf­fic-light stakes. Foot flat from zero to 160km/ h (the old im­pe­rial ton) – surely a pre­req­ui­site with this type of ve­hi­cle – the Car­ni­val is barely a soft­ball mit away from breach­ing the magic 20-sec­ond bar­rier (at 20.2sec), and is just a sec­ond off the pace of the Kluger (19.3sec), Sorento (19.1sec) and CX-9 (19.1sec). Hard­charg­ing award goes to the Santa Fe and Pathfinder ( both 18.8sec for 0-160km/ h), while the wooden spoon gets passed (slowly) to the Volk­swa­gen Mul­ti­van ( 0-140km/ h in 29.1sec!).

Car­ni­val’s trans­for­ma­tion has been so pro­found it de­serves a new name

BINS, CUB­BIES, STOR­AGE GA­LORE. IF CAR­NI­VAL WAS ANY MORE USE­FUL, IT WOULD FIX YOUR LEAKY TAP
