So Ive kind of lost interest in that route.

Ive been fancying a 4x4 type for a while, and buying without lease/finance would be quicker and easier, and a friend already agreed to buy the Clio of us, so Id like to keep that sale going along.

Id want something big that I could get everything in, ie pushcair, car seat, shopping, golf clubs - so then when I go to see the Folks for the weekend we can take everything with us with ease and have a bit of space left over!
Im not really a fan of the MPV types, I only went for the Quashqai because I like the look of them and their cheap to lease.

12k(ish) budget, not a fan of the X5, so that doesn't get a look in.

Range Rover


Merc ML

Volvo XC90 (the Mrs likes these)

Grand Cherokee (would have cash left over for holiday!)

Any opinions on the above?
Anything I should be considering? Did think about E91 or A4 estate, but I didnt think they would be as big??
I'd go for the Merc personally - my father in law has one and it is really refined and much better then the model it replaced (he had that also).

Decent fuel economy, big boot (no 7 seat option) and pretty grunty with that engine
