Thoughts on our family cars?

I need to buy a car for myself and SUV for my wife. I do 35k km per year and my wife approx 10k km. Both our trade ins would prob be €3k each at best. Would it be advisable to have hers on PCP and mine bought outright? We were thinking Seat Ateca or Renault Kadjar (18 or 19) for her and Audi A3 or Merc CLA for myself (similar year)


Hi Mike,

Your financial structure and choice of cars seems sound, and all we’d add at this stage are two things: for your annual mileage, you need a diesel car, while conversely your wife will be fine with a petrol; and we’d pick the Ateca over the Kadjar, and the A3 ahead of the CLA, too, if that helps. Make it an A3 Saloon if you really like the idea of a four-door car.
