you should definiely try at least for experience. imho suv driven by couple in video wasn't too wide. higher seats means you have better view of traffic around the car. 4x4 gives better traction & safer on winding roads. narrow roads just have to get used to it …

will love to try automatic parking


After this video, makes me wonder if i should just get a bigger car for travel next time.
Small car are better to navigate in the mountains though.

Yes. The assisted parking is somewhat the sweet point and also the fixed speed driving.
My friend mentioned to me that the speed is perhaps only max of 100km/h, quite a good speed.

fixed speed or commonly known as cruise control / autocruise is a nice feature on straight highway with little traffic. 100km/h just nice, typical max speed on highway

but don't try this on winding or hilly roads

well i did said "straight highway with little traffic", i don't think suhua is anything like that

that said, i thought most of suhua highway are speed limited to 40km/h, so how to go above that?

Suhua is well paved and maintained.
Can be done.
Loads of fun.
You can slowly drive 40km/h if you really follow the law.
It is a beautiful drive.

I doubt got any speed radars active there.
Unlike singapore, our radars cause unecessary braking and accidents.
