My last company car was a 2.2i Vectra auto, half the tax of the 530i/d that I was entitled to - plus cash back on my allowance. I just wrote down what I needed: aircon, cd, electric windows, 'family' sized, towbar. Did +70k in 2 years - no problems whatsoever.
I guess it takes all sorts...I'd rather set about my testicles with a blunt instrument than drive a Vectra out of choice. A truly horrible car that offers nothing to those who care about driving dynamics.
From the EVO review that rob mentioned: "...the Yeti is truly multi-talented, an all-rounder of rare breadth and cohesion, even when driven in the company of a reigning eCoty champion.
It does the junior SUV thing without the obnoxious image. It does the family MPV thing without being mumsy. It’s a convincing all-wheel-drive soft-roader that can tow up to 2000kg, which, if you want a more useful unit of measurement, is a decent sized trailer and a trackday sports car of your choice.
Most impressively it bubbles with the enthusiasm, chuckability and infectious spirit of a well-executed hot hatch, yet deftly avoids the pitfall of trying too hard to be overtly sporty. It’s this amazing versatility and bold execution that ensures it manages to feel ‘right’ so much of the time, and is why we’re such big fans."
