OK, just for fun, a car comparo, since people are always comparing phones to cars.I gave up on Ferrari because they don't do a 4WD Estate version, as far as I know, plus they are about 5 times as expensive as these mid-range ones. :P
Skoda Superb Estate Elegance 3.6 V6 260PS DSG 4x4 - £30,910 top of range. It's basically a stretched Passat.
Or slightly larger A4 - something like an A6 in size.
OK, not a diesel, but, 28mpg tops is not too bad for a 2.3tonne estate car that does 0-60 in 6.6 and 153mph!
Please El Reg can you test one, just for fun. Get it muddy and lap some roundabouts, you know you want to.
I think some police forces have them as a stealth tarmac-burner.
Closest price BMW -
BMW 5 Series 520i SE - £31,195
No, just , no. Well, it looks nice from the outside..... probably very smooth motor ;)
Closest price Audi
Audi A4 allroad quattro 2.0 TDI - £31,380
or - Audi A6 Saloon 2.0 TDI SE - £30,495 (but estate is more)
Very respectable ;)
Closest price Merc
Mercedes Benz C-Class Estate 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Executive SE Auto - £31,125
or -Mercedes Benz E-Class Estate 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY SE - £32,005
Nice, but not as fast ... or as big inside. Skoda prob has better interior.
Expensive Toyota... Land Cruiser V8. 63,910 UKP. But also huge, unique, the rest of the range apart from lesser Land Cruisers, tops out at half the price, GT-86 is nice .... :P
