Asked by Bruce Birchall
I'm totally confused after looking for a mid-sized SUV or station wagon for my wife and I to do more travelling as we move into retirement. We are prepared to spend up to $55,000, there are only two of us, and we enjoy packing up the golf clubs and heading away for long weekends. If we get an SUV I'm keen for it to drive more like a car than a truck. I have been looking at the Volvo XC60 in runout, Jeep Cherokee Limited, second hand Audi Q5s, demonstrator Volvo V60 wagons.

I'm a fan of the XC60, which still gets The Tick, but you should also consider the Skoda wagon lineup and test drive both the Octavia and Superb as they are from the Volkswagen family but better value.
