Okay - let's look at this.
*XT is definately the most attractive base model car on Australian roads.
*4 litre 6 cyl, with 4 valves per cylinder, and variable camshaft timing.
*It has the highly acclaimed Control Blade IRS.
*It puts out 182kw, 30 kw more than its nearest rival, VY.
*Quality interior, with a digital information screen, and a whole lot of extras.
*Comes with air-con standard!
All for a smidge over $30k.
Now, if at any stage the VY Exec outsells the BA XT, it will prove that the average Aussie motorist is a complete and utter ignoramus, no questions asked.
