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 I’m 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.

I like the Octavia Estate but put off by the fact the peelers all drive them up here.

Dougal Maguire:
Thanks for all the advice folks.

Ah, in fairness they're a much more comfortable drive in terms of space and as a family car where you're throwing prams and bags and high chairs and whatever else at them, they're hard to beat.

Agree on the estates though, fantastic cars and bake for money. The Octavia and the Leon estates are great cars.

StPatsAbu:
My lad is 17 at Christmas. Would a Polo or Fiesta be the cheapest to insure but still look decent? Any other recommendations for lads?

Milltown Row2:
Youngest passed her test the other day, Marmalade £105 a month is the cheapest, now thatís for a fiat 500 convertible under a named driver on my wifeís car insurance. Good luck getting his own insurance for anything cheaper.
