Did you know that Northstar Motor Group sponsored ProBlogger accommodation for Redcliffe Style and I this year? Well they did, and not only that, they were generous enough to lend us a Jeep Cherokee Sports to drive to the Gold Coast and back. Thank you Northstar Motor Group, you are the best!
It was a super comfortable ride, and luckily we didn’t get any tickets! The 5 inch touch screen made adjusting the air conditioning and radio very simple, and the park view rear back up camera made reverse parking a breeze. As a passenger on the drive down, my main concern was comfort and I was very comfortable indeed. Plenty of leg room, plenty of cup holders, leather seats, a sober driver – what more could you want?
- The fuel economy. If you are like me and watching your budget, you won’t want to spend a lot of cash on petrol. The round trip to the Gold Coast took approximately 3 hours, with the air con blasting all the way, and we didn’t even use half a tank of petrol. Incredible. I am gobsmacked, and I think Jerry at Northstar Motor Group was a bit surprised himself.
- The engine seriously has grunt! I thought I was driving a 6 cylinder at least, but it turns out the 2.4 litre Tiger Shark engine is a 4 cylinder.
- It has plenty of space inside but drives like a smaller car. The car I normally drive boats around corners, and my old Jeep had a particularly scary notice on the sun visor warning you not to turn too suddenly, or the car might roll. The Jeep Cherokee Sports was doing U-turns as if it was a little hatch. No more embarrassing 3 point turns at the traffic lights, yay!
I was sad to leave ProBlogger but excited for the drive back to North Brisbane. Even the hotel valet couldn’t believe how much space was in this gorgeous ride! Two giant suitcases, with enough room for more!
Thank you again, Northstar Motor Group!
