Yeah - funny.
I've seen two press reports of the NZ announcement and they both said the same thing: CVT only. Didn't say "subject to change without notice", but my impression is these things aren't set in stone until they're set in stone, if you know what I mean.
EDIT: Jamie - do you know whether the NZ fuel economy ratings are directly comparable to Australian ones? Just curious.
