Question Guess the car !

Here are some quotes from a motoring article here in NZ, can you guess what vehicle they are talking about (Ive deleted the name)

Quote:
Out on the road the numbers become much less significant. The _________'s engine has plenty of grunt on light throttle but there's no incentive to work it hard. It's a coarse old thing and the four-speed automatic gearbox lacks finesse over demanding roads.
Quote:
The _________'s low-speed dynamics are abysmal. Steering is vague and easily corrupted by rough road surfaces, while the ride - which should be outstanding thanks to the huge wheelbase - is quite capable of inducing car sickness due to the fidgety lateral movement of the vehicle on all the but the smoothest city roads.
Quote:
As family transport, both vehicles have their shortcomings. The _________'s clumsy chassis does it no favours
