Can you find a Freelander 2 for that price? Mine's ace, fast-ish (190bhp auto)very quiet and comfortable, handles well for a tall girl, plenty of room. Not missed a beat yet (only 36,000 though). Fuel consumption err, not too bad.....about 35-40 driven gently, 30-34 towing a 1 tonne trailer.
Nissan XTrail...or something similar?
Shoguns are great I'm on my 3rd but you won't like the mpg one bit.
Diesel you're looking at 26mpg average.
That's my experience.
Look at the Outlander. I think I'd go for one if I didn't need such a big truck.
We use Shoguns at work. Ok, but not much room inside considering the size of the vehicle. Ours are all lwb diesel autos and drink fuel too. We have run them since 2007 and have two 14 plate ones. The last one died of gearbox failure.
the Passat's a bit limited sometimes
In what sense?
In the ground clearance sense. Like when I'd love to explore the sand dunes & stuff.
An auto Freelander would be last on my list after a fuel guzzling trip to Torridon in my mates.
+1 on the Outlander. Good boot and should be reliable.
We went with a FL as we wanted something that would double up for collecting the sheep from the fields and was cheaper at the time but for your needs I would look at the Outlander. Should be more than enough in terms of off-road ability.

Are you buying a second 4x4 for the mrs to tow you out when you get stuck ?
