My dream retirement car is an Audi Q3 as I want to have an easier car to get in and out of and to safely drive young grandchildren around. You have a high opinion of the new Mazda CX-5 in that class. Which do you recommend? I'm a bit worried I'm only looking at the Audi for prestige reasons and it may not be the best value for money.
You should never just buy a badge. The CX-5 is a better car, and considerably better value, than the Audi Q3. It's best in the class, gets The Tick from me, and is far better value than many prestige SUVs.
