Two young professionals, career minded, one 14 month old child, might ? have another later, both 29/30 yrs old. Need second car as a family car, commute (40 mile round trip country B and A roads), family visits (100 mls round trip), want the space. Approx 15/17k mls per year
So decided ... estate and diesel.

Is it...

2007 Skoda VRS estate, all the trimmings 54 K mls fsh etc....

or

2006 Jaguar X type estate 42 K mls fsh etc

Both same price.

I said the Jag would be the better buy over a 4/5 yr period ( that is what they think) as it would hold it's value better, but then I am not a 30 something !!!!

So...opinions please.

Cheers

Brian

My choice would be the Jag but then it was always a car to envy.
Daughter is rather more image conscious so the VRS is the favourite. She had a Fabia VRS and really misses the enthusiastic drive.

Cheers and thanks for the comments.
