Going for the Ford Puma, itís a hybrid be interested in if it saves me on fuel much, hopefully picking up mid November, apparently Ford are slow with distribution, ordered in July so if youíre ordering new beware

Hopefully it doesn't rot like the original model!
I can't warm to the new Puma at all, probably because I still have one of the originals and it's too far removed from that.
My Dad has a Rav4 Hybrid....deadly job to be fair.

I like those new Hyundai Tucsonís but theyíre only available in petrol. Iím also going to have a look at one of the new type Ford Kugas and while I like the Seat Alteca thereís very few of them about. My issue is that I donít know what the future will hold for diesel cars in 4 years time when Iím changing again. Any advice??

If you like the Ateca, take a look at the Skoda or Karoq or the Tiguan too. They're 95% the same car. Bought a Karoq in June as our first family car and I'm very happy with it.

Over here, obviously SEAT is incredibly popular, but it seems like half the cars on the road these days, and an even larger proportions of new ones, are crossover SUVs.

My last couple of cars have been SUVs and Iím thinking of going back to something like an estate for my next car. Like you say nearly all cars on the roads nowadays are SUV crossover type cars and Iím kind of bored with them now. In reality they arenít any more practical than the smaller hatchbacks they are all based on and apart from the fact you sit higher up there isnít really any advantage in having one.
I like the look of the Corolla Sports Touring Hybrid or the new Octavia Estate. Far more practical for a lot less money than an SUV.

Theyíre a lot cheaper in the US, and one of the few estate car options available here, but we recently traded in our old, run-into-the-ground, Subaru Outback for a new one. Very happy with it so far, especially the interior, which is like something from another age compared to our previous one. I got the 2.4 L turbo version as the standard 2.5L option is a wee bit underpowered for motorway-type driving, but itís still easier on petrol than the old 3.6L one was.
Subaru are suffering though over here with the chip shortages. They have some Outbacks available, but other models like the Ascent, Forester and Crosstek XV are all presold weeks, even months in advance.
