Looks quite useful. Seats appear very comfy and supportive but what a gloomy interior overall.

Like the look of it, better than the Yeti, but no Hybrid or EV option :( VAG missing a trick here, I can't for the life of me see why a new model is released that doesn't cater to this growing sector

I'm just not a VAG fan. Some are quite nice but I've got no passion to own one.

I picked up my Kia Sorento KX2 2.2 CRDi manual today and drove the 75 or so miles across the Staffordshire moorland and into Derbyshire.
It's early days and I feel disloyal to the superb Rav4 I had from new for six and a half years, but I've got to say, it was a nicer drive than the Rav, more comfortable and fantastic torque. I can feel the power there, although too early for pedal to the metal and in sunset red, it looks fantastic.
I know a lot of people will say that buying new cars is a mug's game, but I didn't half feel good when I finally got my hands on it.
I just hope that the feelgood factor isn't going to be ruined by warranty issues with the motor - at least there's seven years to get things sorted!

Is that not just a Jaguar Evoque?? I think the Land Rover one looks better (although must confess to being slightly biased!!).

For some reason I like the look of the Audi Q2??!! Help please.

It's been a month with the Sorento and just over 800 miles and I'm still getting to grips with all the goodies available.
My wife says it's the most comfortable car I've ever had and fuel consumption has crept up to just over 35mpg.
I really don't care about the mpg - it's a big motor and who cares!
At this stage, I've got to say that I'm glad I drifted away from Toyota and it was refreshing to deal with Salesmen who didn't tell lies like the con artists I dealt with when I bought the Rav 4 from the dealership in Shirley in 2011.
I would probably be even happier with an Audi Q8 or a BMW X5 (notice that I didn't mention any Land Rover products!), but for just over 27 grand (over 5 grand below list price), I'm a happy chappy.

What do you call a careless oriental person whose dad has diorrhea?
A slap happy jappy with a crap happy pappy.
