Honda was a little too large and too long and Toyota was too small. I tried a Mercedes B class but they now use 1300 turbo engines with a speed of 140 mph and more like a racing car.
Difficult to find a new diesel as the factories shut down. Volvo just do not have any diesel in stock at all.
This has been a lot of fun with all the hand cleaning and masks to go into the garages. BMW had a notice saying do not enter so i walked away without a test drive. All manufacturers were keen to offer a test drive of 50 miles or more.
Some cars had flaws of armrests that were out of reach of my arms etc. Some were far too complex just to alter the heating and many had multicolour led strips all around the doors and controls. Volvo have a lot of technology but keep most of it simple and not too many led striplights.
Leather seating was top notch and the interior is like a luxury lounge. The gear knob is a crystal glass arty object for some reason. November delivery and i just have to wait now.
Not even worn out a tyre on the Nissan at 23,000 miles and it still outshines a few of the latest models which is why you see so many out on the roads in the UK. I considered another but they have also put in a 1300 petrol engine of 160 bhp and underpowered the diesel model with a 115 bhp diesel 1.5. That one had a 12.5 second 0-60 so maybe slow overtaking
