Yes, Wheels testing of the manual 5.4 XT was way off the mark so its not a real good comparo. I read a local media review on the XT 5.4 manual and it was good for around a surprising 14.6 for the 400m. The surprise is because of the gearing the XT has. The G220 has shorter gearing to improve performance and by the looks of it from Wheels, its working. MOTOR normally get better times again.
The Fairmont auto 5.4 is a better measure at around the 15 second mark, same as the Calais. This would indicate that an XT auto 5.4 would be about the same.
