2014 Foton Tunland (4x4) Review

The cabin space is great and it is fantastic to get in and out of. I do miss left hand foot rests but having done trips that are well over a thousand kms in a day and am no worse than others cars worth a lot more...

I have nothing but praise for the overall quality of this car. The engine feels strong and robust. No lack in power compared to any of the other dual cabs out there...

I had a few minor warranty issues to start with including a missing air vent and the TPMS was deactivated. The Engine is amazing it sounds great, is powerful and averages around 9...
