biggrin Wheels November BA vs. VT Comparison

I have here sitting in my lap the November edition of Wheels with a really good comparison between the BA and the VT. Below are the results:
Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo vs. Holden Commodore SS.
XR6T = 4.5 stars, SS = 3.5 stars. Winner = Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo

Ford Fairmont Ghia V8 vs. Holden Calais V8.
Ghia = 4.5 stars, Calais = 3.5 stars. Winner = Ford Fairmont Ghia V8

Ford Falcon XR6 N/A vs. Holden Commodore S S/Charged.
XR6 = 4 stars, S = 3.5 stars. Winner = Ford Falcone XR6 N/A

Ford Falcon XT vs. Holden Commodore Executive.
XT = 4.5 stars, Executive = 3 stars. Winner = Ford Falcon XT

Well that makes me very very happy.

Hahha thats right DK.. Oh and that reminds me of something further. The VY is not in running for COTY. They claim it's not new enough. We all knew that straight away and it took them a month. hahahahahha! The contenders left are below:
  • BMW 7 Series
  • Ford BA Falcon
  • Ford Focus
  • Holden Monaro
  • Honda Jazz
  • Honda CR-V
  • Hyundai Getz
  • Hyundai Tiburon
  • Lexus ES300
  • Mazda 6
  • Mercedes-Benz CLK
  • Mercedes-Benz E-class
  • Mercedes-Benz SL
  • Mini
  • Peugeot 206CC
  • Peugeot 307
  • Range Rover
  • Renault Clio
  • Renault Laguna
  • Saab 9-3
  • Suburu Forester
  • Toyota Camry
  • Volkswagen Polo

All of a sudden the BA is looking more and more like a COTY winner. :s4

And even a "dark horse" like the SL Roadster isn't out of the question! Going on the last few years, the actual criteria for winning COTY has been questionable, in both definition and implementation!

Clicky clicky here for previous ride! I still miss her!

Wheels COTY is announced for next issue.

Expect something in the media in around about 3 weeks.

To my mind, COTY is between Mazda6 and BA. BA has its 'utilisation of resources' deficiency, but value for money is a strong point. The SL isn't nearly as revolutionary as the '99 S Class was.
