    Not to sound rude but why do you need over a month to decide? You had the time before the first extension to decide what to get if you get awarded pip.

    What are you looking for?

    Theres also an argument that the more time you’ve got, the more time you’ll take.

    Perhaps a deadline will focus the mind?

    Just be mindful yhat if you’ve run an XC60 for a good while then anything significantly smaller will feel really odd. You get used to having a lot of metal around you, as well as the sear height.

    I switched to auto 3 years back out of neccessity, and within days wondered why i’d driven manuals for so long. I’ll never go back now.

    Perhaps the Xtrail could be an option?

    If you are looking for front wheel drive petrol then look at Suzuki s-cross or vitara. Both at NIL AP. They also do a part time four wheel drive

    Or if you’re really jammy, Subaru will make it back onto the scheme, and you’d have the option of the XV or better still the Forester

    Well in regards to Subaru the manufacturer is doing all they can to get on, but motability is the blocker just now, so we’ll just have to see

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>New Forester and XV are self charging petrol hybrids with permanent AWD and CVT boxes. Would be a great addition for sure.</p>

    I think you might love an auto. I used to think manual was the be all and end all but changed to auto a number of years ago. Not had a manual since. (~15 years). In town driving they’re a Godsend. No more hurting left leg due to clutch pressing.

    Also, if you have any issues with your back then the X1 is brilliant for entry/exit. Because of the Mercedes’ roofline you may struggle getting in. My wife has a GLA (similar roofline) and I really struggle.

    Good luck ?

    🏎 I will be remembered for nothing but had great fun doing it 🏎
