Does anyone know what the point of the extra 2 wheels up front are(especially since its RWD, and those four front wheels aren't being driven)??? I mean does it help the car handle better or what? This seems ridiculous to say the least

the apparent advantages are listed in the text:
• Less risk of front tires deflating
• Less risk of aquaplaning
• Better braking
• Better grip
• Better comfort
• Better absorption of frontal impact

i had a good laugh

Well thats certainly different. I imagine legroom would be highly constrained on the sides because of how close that extra set of wheels are to the cabin.

I had a laugh at the reasons for adding the extra wheels......they cant be serious.
