I need comfort and space for €45,000...

Hi all,

I’m driving a Mercedes C-Class and looking to change early next year. I want more seat comfort and boot space as primary issues (boot space for golf clubs and more). I am thinking of either a 1.5 TSI Superb or Toyota Camry or an SUV like a hybrid Honda CR-V or a Toyota RAV4. I drive around 12,000km per year, mainly city with monthly 600km round trips. My budget is up to around €45k (without trade-in). I am open to alternatives. Any advice welcomed!

Which new crossover or SUV for me?


Which crossover/SUV would you recommend? I do circa 25-30k kilometres per year, mostly motorways, but also a fair bit of urban driving.

Outlander PHEV or Volvo XC40?


We are in the process of moving from an S60 Volvo to a SUV type of vehicle. We have narrowed it down to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV S-Edition or Volvo XC40. Is there any major positive or negative aspects of either that isn’t obvious to the ordinary punter? Help much appreciated in making the final decision.

Which seven-seat SUV won't break the bank?

Am looking for a seven-seater that has three ISOFIX points in the middle seats and has either four-wheel drive or assist. And that won't break the bank. Am coming up short on anything that's not mega expensive.
