  1. That’s a verified fact. My Verada gets 14.5L/100km around town. The Falcon isn’t that much of and improvement on that, while the Aurion offers a pretty significant reduction.
  2. Ok guys, so I’ve chosen to go with the 2017 Aurion Sportivo 😁 i had to test both cars extensively. I kinda did fall in love with the Aurion. It’s pretty versatile as a city and a hwy car, which is exactly what I needed. Also more pick up of the line than the Falcon, which felt a bit sluggish at times. Comes with 18 months of factory warranty left, less niggles and better reliability. So I guess my choice is made haha. Cheers guys
  3. Oh I definitely will be diligent i really liked how the falcon drove. Hopefully the test on Monday will be more conclusive.
  4. Thanks for the feedback guys. I really did like the Aurion but my gut is telling me not to give up on the Falcon yet. I’m aware of the diff bushings issue with the Ford but honestly I’m not too fussed. Im testing the Ford again on Monday and hopefully taking it for a more rigorous drive. And maybe I’ll take another Aurion Sportivo out. Reliability is key for me, as I want to avoid too many niggles but I also want a car that drives and handles really well. So we’ll see how it goes 🙂
  5. Hi guys I’ve posted this question on a couple of forums already but I’d like to get some opinions from the Toyota side of things. I currently drive a 2003 Mitsubishi Verada GTVi which is getting on in age and needs replacing. I’ve narrowed my options down to an Aurion Sportivo and an FGX Falcon. I saw a lot of reviews citing vague steering, torque steer and other things. I ended up test driving a Sportivo GSV50 and it was the complete opposite. I loved it. I also tested a Falcon and I liked it for different reasons, but the overall package with the Aurion seems to be better I’m just wondering if there’s any people here that have maybe had experiences with either or both vehicles and can give me some insights? Cheers 🙂
