8:32 pm
though the changes work rather modest they help make the x e one of the more elegant mid-range vehicles. but i don't have standing around time for a test drive. so let's go guys. even in the 1st few meters you can tell you were sitting in a driver's car tackles the curve in style and exit it full speed ahead it's not too short and features all new x. versions come standard with an 8 speed automatic transmission think you're changes are pleasantly soft and always at the right moment. the starting price for an x e like this one is already over 43000 euros in germany

3 series. are you. in the interior you can definitely keep up with. likes of audi when it comes to things like build quality. and well says it's definitely not as stuffy as the mercedes c. class and well it has become a bit more expensive in the new model year just over 2000 euros that includes over $4000.00 euros of standard equipment so he thinks it's worth it although. toyota is usually known for ecologically friendly fuel efficient vehicles but the japanese carmaker can also do things very differently like the jarosz g r m and it's aimed at bringing rally excitement to toyota buyers. she r m n stands for gazoo racing master says lewis or champion of an herb or great it is for toyota
