No, we need to replace wifey's Qashqai - I was going to get her a GTD as they're cheap but she said that she likes to be up high.

We looked at the x3 but it was a bit nothingy for the money

So much better than the 09 we had. To be honest I don't drive it, maybe once a month but the wife and daughter love it and when I do get to drive it I do as well. The 140 is a little under powered if you can go for the 170. I've fitted a tuning box that works great and pulls really well now

It's fast, comfortable, quieter than previous. And room for most things

Thanks - hoping the new one with be great as its on the golf platform. Our Qashqai only has 130bhp so the 150bhp tdi should suit ( there's the 180 and 217tdi options too but they may blow the budget )

Biggest thing I noticed was the switch between 18" and 19" wheels. It might just have been as we changed from the mk1 to mk2 or something similar but the 19"s were really twitchy and bumpy on the road, opted for the 18"s on this one and so much better

We looked at the Touareg - a bit big. Then we looked at the Merc ML but they don't get a good write up.

Yeh they are big. Bigger than we need for sure. ML's don't seem to live up to the badge reputation
