Having sadly sold my Corrado VR6, we need an estate now that can carry a family + 2 dogs for weekend trips/hols etc (v little tootling about). Reasonably practical but at least reasonable fun/enjoyable to drive. With the Corrado sale money, I'm wondering about the following (all roughly the same year 2002, and roughly the same mileage 70K):
- BMW 520 touring, petrol
- BMW 525i, touring petrol
- Volvo V70, petrol prob (diesel outside budget)
- Passat estate, V6 petrol or Tdi
My wife doesn't like Mondeos so they're out sadly. So any thoughts o nthe above, with emphasis being on reasonable driver involvement/fun, followed by practicality and running costs.
