Re: HSV Avalanche a dud?
It's a warmer version of the Adventura, not a competitor to a clubsport. It's aimed at those who would consider buying an Adventura but have enough dough to buy a tarted up one(Avalanche).
As a performance vehicle it dose'nt rate very high, but compare it to a standard Adventura it probly go harder, handle better an look tougher.
I doubt they tried to make it a racecar, but just produced a vehicle that appeals to the materilistic analy-retentive people who have the "mines bigger, more expensive than yours so it's better" attitude.
Fits in nicely with HSV's Coupe4 in their lineup off such vehicals.
