    Wow, the Koreans sure do love their big cars. How much is petrol over there? I can’t figure out how Japan is so different – they’re both 1st world highly urbanized Asian countries, yet in Japan big cars don’t sell – it’s all those little Kei and micro cars and tall wagon looking things, whereas Korea seem to prefer the more western large sedans? Shrugs.
