    Executive who likes a family and practical car..

    Awesome !

    Would you buy this car again and why?


    What are you likely to buy next?

    Will keep this one for 5 years or 100k miles and then more than likely buy a newer one.... I like to sweat the value out of my cars, the last one being an E class estate held for 6 years. Buy second-hand though as these depreciate until 5 or 6 years old, then great value.
