What can we say about Australia, where they formed the cult of the unusual passenger pickups. There they are known as "Utah," and today we shed a little light on their history.

In the Audi decided to go one step further and shake up the compact MPV class of ultra-light, cutting-edge, ultra-low-cost novelty that was to become the model of the ideal urban car of the XXI century. Alas, not all of ingolstadts went according to plan. More precisely, the plan went almost everything. Remember the Audi A2 and trying to figure out what was wrong with her.
Traditionally, in Geneva, exhibited the most shocking and famous tuning firm, which are taken primarily for luxury cars. Characteristically, Mansory, Brabus, TechArt, and Startech for several years are located in the main pavilion directly opposite stands of the Mercedes-Benz and BMW. From the attention of the monsters tuning not escape anyone: there is always a dozen Gelendvagene, fresh Porsche and Bentley, also caught a rolls-Royce and even Bugatti. Inside the victims of plastic surgery — a separate conversation.

But if not for the frame with the image of cars of all generations on the presentation of the updated "Elantra", then I would never have featured the car of the third generation, fourth or fifth, and was unable to identify them in the stream. Just because they remembered it was nothing special. But the latest incarnation of the model, it did not seem threatened — her appearance literally bites into the brain with their sharp edges. We met with the upgraded machine to find out it went in her favor or not.
