The big SUV looks great in Wine Country
Unsealed roads in NSW Wine Country. A perfect travelling companion.
We didn't use the pedals much thanks to Radar Assisted cruise control. We just nudged the target speed up and down with switches on the steering wheel.
Mud on the reversing camera. All good.
Big wheels and high clearance make obstacles into speed bumps.
The Everest can easily scale slopes like this...
... However, this slope got proper steep and we lost our nerve what with being in the middle of nowhere and not having 4WD.
Audrey Wilkinson's magnificent view from the carpark.
Hunter Valley, NSW.
Looking down on vinyards (and coal mines).
There are plenty of settings for the lights.
This configuration did not work well. Put the kids' seats on the rear row as it's tricky for adults to climb into.
Small children like the back row - a lot.
There's plenty of room for three in the back.
Collision detection doing its thing with a low wall and a high ride height.
We were averaging around 9l/100KM fuel economy and we weren't holding back. There's an 80l fuel tank.
It's big, and yet compact. There are no sloped or flared arches or bumpers so you know where every corner is.
High and mighty but not wide and girthy.
Two extra pull-up seats in the rear. Put everything down and you've over 1000l of space in the back.
Plug sockets! And rear air con.
The all-important specs for the sockets.
Trying to search for things with the GPS was... trying. Labelling isn't a patch on Google Maps.
The six-speed automatic gear box is more comfortable out of the cities than in low revs in town. We didn't feel the need to use the manual shifting.
Natural habitat... dirt roads and bush.
On the oblique.
Watch out roos.
We (well the kids) loved the runner boards along the sides.
