If u buy a skoda u have lost at life. This is an immutable law.

Cam will be along in a minute to recommend a mundaneO for £4.50. Dont buy one.

The XF estate is an alternative to the A6 if you want something less khunty.

Without further info from the OP, I'm tempted to suggest he just gets another V70. Hard to beat for long distance comfort and ergonomics and the badge isn't marmite like Skoda or Audi. A bit floaty/barge like, but it doesn't matter if you're just doing sensible family duties, 4 hours down to Cornwall or whatever....

"skoda isnt marmite, its invisible"

on the road, yes, but when discussing what to buy... it seems to provoke strong reactions.

heh @ someone over 30 buying a skoda.

Trufax my wife wanted to name our youngest Octavia until I pointed out her friends would rip the piss endlessly if she named her after a Skoda.

In Scotland, we have an Octavia Scout - gets great reviews and is basically the same as the Audi/VW estates but was a heck of lot cheaper.

Volvo estates are a no brainer for non-petrolheads so just get another one and stress not.
