    Default Being a little less frugal when buying a new car - NoB!!

    NoB, need you to cast an eye over my next buying decision. My husband has proven useless - keeps pointing me towards bigger models.

    Nearly 3 years with my Hyundai i30. It's been great, spacious and sufficient for my commute and shuttling the kid around. Now he's 4, I want something a touch bigger.

    Looking at the Audi Q2 and the Volvo XC40. On the face of it I thought the Audi would be my choice. I've been surprised by the Volvo though, not what I would expect from an 'old man' car.

    I'm looking at another 3-4 year horizon on this purchase. Any advice you can share, especially given that you have three young ones.

    Honestly, either one is a good pick. Audi's are a little more fun. Both very safe. Get the 2.0 liter engine, otherwise it will lack pep.

    Because you are a woman and will probably kill innocent people with all that power.

    Sometimes sales managers offer extra bonuses to sales folks on certain cars.
