Off the top of my head there is something like 48ish kg difference in the XR's, in favour of the XR6.

Dont quote me on this..

Try www.CarSales.com.au under the Research seaction to find some stats.

The better the model the better the luxury equipment/fetures it had which in turn adds weight.

Thats as I understand it.

i mean, the difference for a GLi is 70kg, but for the fairmont its only 40..... you'd think the GLi wouldnt get another 30kg of crap!
