“Frontera sport RS 2.2i 16v”

Overall I have found this to be a great car both on and off road. The toughened and hardened suspension is far superior to the old leaf spring design on the older models, though, this in turn makes off roading a little less comfortable. On road it is a pleasure to drive, very good internal build...

Price deterioration, bad press, Can be thirsty

“unlucky”

published 07/06/2004

, good for towing,

parts expensive,

this is my second frontera.the first was 1997 model which had lots of leg room and I was quite happy with it Then in 2001 I upgraded to a 1999 model .... BIG MISTAKE! this one has two small oval windows at the sides, but none of them open. I suppose thats a plus when you've got small children in...
