I'm replacing my diesel Land Rover Evoque for a petrol SUV - what do you suggest?
I recently had the 'restricted performance' limitation appear on my 2013 diesel Land Rover Evoque (it has done 35,000 miles). I stopped and switched off, waited a short while, then restarted and it had cleared. The next day, the same thing happened en-route to work. It limped to the dealers and they found the Mass Air Sensor showing an old fault and did a software reboot. Went to work without problem and drove home without problem, but it happened again the next day. The MAS was eventually fixed under warranty but I'm not sure whether I trust the car now. My mileage is going to reduce - semi-retirement beckons, is it time to change for a petrol engine? All I need is high entry and ride and room for my golf kit and grandchildren, what would be on your list to look at? I've had bad experience with Nissan and Peugeot so I wouldn't go there again. My Evoque is worth around £23,000, with a full Land Rover service history.
If a Peugeot 2008 1.2 Puretech 130 6-speed and a Peugeot 3008 1.2 Puretech 130 are out of the picture, then that leaves a Suzuki Vitara S 1.4T BoosterJet 4WD at £21,493 or the new model Mazda CX-5 2.0 Skyactiv G SE-L Nav 2WD at £23,695 (prices before any negotiation).
