One of the most interesting developments in the automotive industry over the last ten years has been the unstoppable rise in the popularity of utes.
What’s the reason behind this rise you may ask?
Well, an interesting article on the AA said that utes “represent the rugged outdoor lifestyle that so many Kiwis love.”
Stuff writer David Linklater notes how utes have “advanced enormously in performance and refinement over the past five years, without losing any of its traditional off-road ability.”
Utes are tough, fit for purpose and such practical vehicles. What’s more, the latest models are stacked with technology meaning they double as your mobile office.
If you’re looking for a vehicle which has that perfect lifestyle balance, look no further than the modern ute.
