Ah, but it's not the top selling petrol in its class, is it? Granted, the top selling petrol in the Small class in Australia (Toyota Corolla) doesn't have a diesel equivalent, but plenty of the runners up in the class do.But how common are those cars, the Golf is the top selling diesel in its class, so why wouldn't it be the one chosen for this test?
I would have let it slide if it was a decent enough segment. But it wasn't. It was The Car Show bad. It's as if the producers of TGA thought 'oh shit, we're out of ideas, what do we do?' and someone from SBS's Marketing department went 'Advertorial!'.
If the Bog Standard car gets mysteriously replaced by a Skoda Fabia as soon as it's released in Australia early next year, that would REALLY take the biscuit ...
