I need advice regarding what to buy new that is comfy and has the option of four-wheel drive. Some say go for the Ford Kuga. What do you reckon?

The Ford Kuga is a great choice and is really good value now as a two-wheel drive version. With the problems we have been having with the weather you can see why people would want to choose the four-wheel drive one. You pay about a €2,000 premium for four-wheel drive and if we are going to continue to have the weather we have been having then it might be worth it.
We also really like the new Skoda Yeti 4x4. We drove it last week and it is super. You can have one with all the bells and whistles for about €31,000. The new Kia Sportage is really nice looking too and you can get the 2.0-litre "First Edition" model loaded with kit for €31,495.
There are lots of options around now for the right money. I think out of this lot, I probably would choose the Kuga because it has the best interior and best road manners.
