SUV upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Time to upgrade the Tiguan I have. 

I have a budget of around $50-70,000. I was initially looking at a Rav 4, but with the 12 month wait time, I've started looking at a few different options. I was thinking a 2015-2016. Diesel Macan, or similar. 

If anyone has some recommendations, that would be great.

I’m sure a Macan is a great car but the Rav4 Hybrid is worth the wait, we have our 2nd one on order.

Rav 4 is definitely good value, but 12 months at this stage is not an option.

 We've got a 2015 Kluger. Great car we paid just under 30 grand a year ago I think. The missus chose it over the Cayenne in a similar price bracket that we test drove. Both of us didn't like that very much.

I have a petrol Macan S and I love it. It can be the boring car and do all the boring car things, but if you find yourself in the boring car on a fun road it is fantastic. Even in the twisties it would almost keep up with my 911's. I know the Diesel is not quite as quick but I am sure it is still fun. 

My only issue has been the stupid leaking sunroof.

My diesel is fun! The PDK is great when you want a spirited drive. Had a base petrol as a loan car while mine was being serviced and couldn't wait to give it back.

The base petrol is a no go. Like Jeff I had an S and drove it on long trips and in the twisties it managed both with ease, loved it.
