Price range is based on the recommended drive away prices for all models, engines and transmissions. The recommended drive away prices have been calculated based on the Manufacturer’s List Price, 12 months registration, 12 months compulsory third party insurance (CTP) with a premium insurance provider, an estimated Dealer delivery charge, stamp duty and other applicable statutory charges for the vehicle. The highest registration costs and statutory charges in Australia have been used. Statutory charges are current as at the month and year of this communication. The actual drive away prices may differ depending on selection of options, individual circumstances or choice of insurer. Final purchase prices will be at the discretion of the selling dealer.

Figures obtained from controlled tests using ADR 81/02 (combined). Actual fuel consumption and emissions depend on many factors including driving habits, prevailing conditions and your vehicle’s equipment, condition and use.
