    We all have different taste in cars so some great deals may not be apparent to all of us.

    If you have spotted a deal that you think is worth mentioning let us know.

    Nothing stands out for me, I had hoped to see more plugins.

    Looks like I’ll be moving from BMW to Skoda as the Superb iV offers everything I need. Got a test drive booked for Wednesday to see what it’s like.

    @Saintsman, I’d really be interested to hear how you get on with the Superb. I’m in an X1 at the moment (great car) and am due to change in the next few months. I really like the Superb estate but not sure yet if I’ll be able to get in. 🤣

    I thought the same about getting in, I went to the local Skoda dealers before lockdown to check. It’s got electric adjustable seats with memory. I found that the seat can be raised relatively high, so ideal for getting in, then once in, if needs be, you can have another seat position in memory for driving.

    I had an X1 as well, loved it, if the 225e was on the list I’d be putting in my order.

    Saintsman – I’ve had two  Superbs on the scheme: a 2.0 diesel 4X4 and 2.0 petrol with 230ish bhp. Both were excellent. I went for Superb because I had toruble getting in and out of most other saloons and SUVs were a nightmare. Skoda’s big offering was perfect for entry etc.

    Also really good performance and marvellous ride comfort. I see that the hybrid comes with about the same bhp as my petrol model and has the adaptive suspension so you can set it up to drive and ride exactly as you wish. Only disadvantage being that the front wheels scrabble out of corners unless you’re careful but you get used to it.

    @Saintsman, thank you. I appreciate your info. 👍👍

    I paid about £750 (I think it was) for electric seats in my X1 and that’s exactly what I do. Position 1 is for driving and 2 is for entry/exit. I’ve had this in cars for years now.

    And thank you for clearing up re-the memory function. The Skoda info is a bit confusing. It says memory is £620 extra in the configurator but says std on the spec list. (SEL model). I’m looking forward to trying it out whenever that be.
    I absolutely agree with you about the 225e X1 as well. 😆 What a car.

    The iV SEL is a slightly different spec to the normal one, which is why I went for a quick look before. The iV also has the dynamic suspension, so if the notion occurs you can try and throw it through country bends. 😀

    I’m particularly interested in a plugin as they’re ideal for my driving habits. Day to day it’s a mile trip to Tesco with an hour’s drive to Northampton every other weekend for the rugby. Then there’s at least three trips to somewhere in Europe with one of the trips being 2000+ miles and a couple of trips to Scotland. There’s no full electric out there at the moment that would do the European trips, so for me a plugin is ideal at the moment.

    I have a Superb 2ltr turbo I nothing but praise for it. It will be replaced by a Tiguan in October because my guide dog William needs a little easier access. It will be a little sad to hand it back.

    The new BMW 2 series Msport gran coup’e seems to be good value.

    Hi Saintsman,

    Thank you again. 👍

    I think I’ve got it now.

    I’ve been on the configurator again and moved between the 2.0L diesel and the iV on the SEL.  Both, in the configurator asks for £630 for electric seats but then states it’s passenger only (I’m actually remembering now someone else pointed this out some months ago) So the cost is to add the passenger only as the driver already has it!

    I do like the idea of the dynamic suspension on the iV as well. I didn’t spec it on my X1 and I rather regret it. 👍👍

    I’ve only just spotted it, but the 160 bhp Nissan Qashqai 1.3 160 Acenta Premium (petrol, manual) for £0 (zero) AP looks worth a shout out.  A bit dated now, I guess, but pretty decent bang for your buck as a wheelchair wagon.

    The Nissan website mentions “new engines”, but for this money I’m suspecting we’re only being offered the ‘old engines’.  Unless anyone knows better?

    Same engine apparently as in the CLA.

    #115312 Reply


    Is that good?  I haven’t really looked at the CLA (GLA, yes, but not the CLA).  I’m sure there must be CLA owners out there who can comment on this.

    The other thing that caught my eye is that the 189bhp Mini Countryman 2.0 Cooper S Classic (petrol manual) is also for £0 (zero) AP.  Not too shabby, imho.  🙂

    Yes the 1,3 petrol engine used in the CLA 180 and 200 is not manufactured by Mercedes.

    It’s the same unit you find in both Nissan and Renault models.

    Thanks, Elliot.  Then that Qashqai’s pretty fair.

    I’ve added it to my Options List.  The Golf’s definitely starting to get ockard to get in and out of these days.  I got a Letter of Referral to see a Specialist back at the end of February, but Life’s got a bit complicated since then. 🙂
