Recommend me a motor

Recommended Posts

I need help deciding on a new motor. We have the baby on the way so I need to change by the end of June.

Must be;

No more than 4 years old.

Good on fuel (120 miles a day commute)

Automatic

Decent inside seen as I spend a couple of hours a day sat there.

Decent power 190bhp+. I’m going from 400~ish 😢.

4wd would be a plus but not essential.

Big enough for dog, baby and stuff for a week away.

Budget 15-20k.

Volvo XC70 AWD Auto Diesel. Safe, solid, reliable, massive inside. Kids seats fold up out of rear seats. Cruise at motorway speeds all day. If its leather you'll not want to get out.

Anybody have experience of the 335d touring xdrive?

My father in law had 2, brilliant car in every respect, and he loved it, for the engine decent consumption and plenty of power, he has changed this for a 540 x drive which he really likes

My father has the X3 30d and it has been a great car and he is getting almost 50mpg ave

Just handed back a Škoda Superb sel 190bhp diesel 400nm torque, fantastic family car. Had it for 4 years perfect in most ways apart from being a bit long wheelbase and company car tax

volvo xc90 ive never thought of owning a volvo until I bought my xc90 2 years back it is brilliant .

mine is only a 2004 model as I did not have no where near your budget and unfortunately never will but its like driving in your favourite armchair  loads of room and has a 3rd row of seats if needed used mine regularly for shooting …  i.e driving the fields and farm tracks and its fine.

I had mine remapped for economy [cost me £120] and on q run to kent from Newcastle on tyne set the cruise control at 75mph and it averaged 45mpg 

they come with good spec and servicing parts are pretty cheap they are auto with tiptronic if you need it

Interested to know why Audi is much better than a BMW?

Had an A3, never again. Over rated, took a friends focus that was 3k cheaper and had more kit out for a drive and it was much better.

May be of interest: I have Dacia Duster 4wd, I find it fine for what I need, however my mileage is relatively low.

Cheers
