This thread is perfect timing! We are looking to buy a new car - just had a new Bub.

Looking for a midsize SUV- looking at either the 162kw vw Tiguan r line,or the 110kw discovery sport. Any others we should consider in the 55-66k range?

Also looked at the jag e pace, problem with the jag and discovery is once you add extras the price rockets out of budget - without the options the are quite a basic car
Not really up to date with the current SUV's but I was reading about the Ford Endura SUV coming out here soon. I think the base model is predicted to be around 50k so you would have room for options...might be worth a look. Only thing I would want to be sure on is the engine, the US version is very quick and has a petrol v6 but have read that aussie might be a diesel..

If the Mrs doesn't let me buy a 4wd next car , it will be a CX 9

Then again after promising me a 4wd next car , she can pack her bags if she changes her mind :evil:

It's tempting , but we need a bigger vehicle these days CB

Plus my local Toyota dealership is full of tools , they really screwed us , sold me on the extra new car warranty , but it was with the dealership and not Toyota , very different from the original Camry we bought

Great cars , don't get me wrong ......

I have a 2017 model Isuzu MUX. Previously had a VM Multivan which I loved, but I am really impressed with the MUX too. Just getting used to less space....

We'll only ever have a second if we do decide to go that way, so a Camry will always be OK for us.

I have little bad to say about them, great cars. Underpowered as a 2.5L but they're not performance cars.

I'd be happy with a dual cab D Max
