I’m thinking of updating my 2002 Subaru Liberty sedan. It has been a wonderful car and it is just for one person and, on occasions, a couple of grandchildren. I’d prefer an SUV so I sit higher behind the wheel — something similar in size to the Liberty. I’m looking at a top of the range Subaru XV or Mazda CX-5 or CX-3.
The XV will be fine around town but is very small in the boot, and the same goes for the CX-3. If you want a similar cabin and boot space to the Liberty then go for the CX-5, but also have a look at the new Kia Sportage.
