Default Are we catching the US with our obesity

Most cars are designed to carry 5 adults.
Whilst I acknowledge most UK motorists are dangerously overweight and put a totally unnecessary burden on the NHS, even 5 of them weigh less than 1 tonne.
I can only assume this car was built for the US market where 5x800Kg occupants are common.

You limeys will never catch up to the US in anything.
LOL


Losing wars against short men in black pyjamas armed with sticks, for example.

Remind me, what happened to the Boeing 2707?
