    Default New C3

    Should have great appeal to those who want something different. Trouble is nobody in Aussie knows it exists. I didn't till I got on the Aust. website. I wonder if it will be at the Hobart Bastille day show? I don't think it is released here yet unfortunately.

    The previous importers SD (stupid and dumb?) decided to discontinue the C3 into Aus. Whether Inchcape changes that decision waits to be seen. It's a very saturated market point.

    It's an eyesore both within and without.

    The attractive and more roomy C4 is still being suppressed by Inchcape. I'd rather have one than a 308 with the same engine. The previous C3 was being priced into C4 territory, where it couldn't compete.

    Perhaps Inchcape will realize that small and medium car pricing in this country is determined by the Asians. The age of ordinary Hyundais is well past.

    I quite like the look. Just think it will be a little too SUV like in its handling as opposed to French hatch like.

    "... The age of ordinary Hyundais is well past."

    How true! Thank God many people are interested in someting more than just a means of transport otherwise Australia's roads would be full of Hyundais (and Kias).

    We have to agree, they have come a long way very quickly.

    It'll be interesting to see where Inchcape price this. I've watched a few reviews on the new C3 from the UK and they seem to love it. The main stumbling block for people in Australia, will be the badge and the lack of dealers, but you'd think with Australia's appetite with just about all things SUV, this could potentially tap into a new market niche for small cars.

    Have just realized the updated web site also shows the facelifted Grand C4 Picasso 7 seater, but there's been no mention of the vehicle actually being released here? And there is no C4 Picasso, so maybe that has been deleted since Inchcape took over? Was hoping that would still be sold here with the facelift.
