The coolest cars on The Block
You’ve seen the contestants perform on Channel 9’s The Block, and now it’s time to find out how the cars perform. Brad and Lara take us for a test drive. Here’s the lowdown on Brad and Lara’s five fave models.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Jump in the SX4 Crossover, hit the open road and it’ll feel like you’re going on an adventure (and escaping the renos!). Tough SUV looks combine with compact yet spacious design to provide the ultimate lifestyle car. “I love the look, love the shape, love everything about it,” Lara says.
The Grand Vitara offers car-like comfort with SUV spaciousness and cargo capacity that’s perfect for the DIY enthusiast. Just like the couples from The Block, you’ll find that the Grand Vitara’s extra space will enable you to fit just about anything inside!
THE PERFECT PACKAGE
Really, what’s not to love about the Alto? With sharp European styling it not only looks good, but it’s fun to drive and has amazingly low fuel economy. And, the safety of six airbags makes it the perfect car for an urban lifestyle. “Another great inner-city car. Other contestants on The Block had the Alto, but unfortunately we never got to drive it,” Brad says.
SPORTY & STYLISH
There’s a reason the Kizashi Sport AWD is Brad’s favourite. Something to do with the striking looks, luxury features including leather interior and dual zone climate control, perhaps? Oh, and the exhilarating performance and handling, of course. “Loved the Kizashi. Plenty of room and great around town. It performed even better on the open road,” Brad says.
The Block contestants love whizzing around town in the Swift. With sporty handling, fantastic fuel economy, full iPod integration and a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, it really provides more than any other light car in its class.
