Re: EF & AU FALCON SIZE

pretty much the same, although out of my EF and Dad's AU, the AU does feel like a 'bigger' car to drive.

Re: EF & AU FALCON SIZE

Pretty sure the AU is a little wider, not by much but ever so slightly.

Re: EF & AU FALCON SIZE

As previous ppl said the AU is a tad wider, however you get used to the spacious feel of the AU very quickly (as you do with any car). The difference is so insignificante that you should not decide on just that fact. Take both for a test drive and see which one u feel more comfortable with driving in teh first place ...

Re: EF & AU FALCON SIZE

The AU tapers at the front and rear much more than the E series do. This in my mind makes it look smaller from the outside.
