Big cars are back

Sales of big cars are booming despite growing community concern about climate change and rising fuel prices. The grey nomads are buying new sports utility vehicles, V8s and four-wheel drives to hitch to their caravan and take out on the road.

Sales for the year are likely to exceed one million vehicles for the first time and over the year to November sales of SUVs are up 15.6% and sales of four wheel drives are up 22.9%, according to figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.
