Lol. well here in Australia you're talking A$50k plus for low-end luxury SUV's (from cheap-end makers!), and if you want to go all the way, it's not hard to get a price tag of A$100k and up for stuff like top end SUV's and AUV's. Even 'soccer mum' toy 4wd's and suv's have high asking prices but I think a lot of that is the fairly high customs and other import-related costs. I'd like to see what it costs to import a Saab to Australia before Australian customs charges and other tariff's, etc. are added along with the wholesaler and retailer's markups.
