    ^ Also only automatic, no driver's-car option.

    Also, thinking about the odd situation regarding the current cost of one of those ... it's maybe not a great time to be upgrading a car at all?

    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

      C63? Doesn't meet the 2016 requirement though.

          'Unicorn wanted, must be manual'.

          Not many left at all in this market. I was going to suggest a V6 Passat but they're all auto and look like they stopped production in 2014. Bugger buying a VW that old.

          There are a bunch of Octavia RS manuals on Carsales for mid $30's - though looks like they stopped selling them in 2018. My Octavia RS manual was alright to drive.

          This one looks alright. Though the factory wheels are hideous:

            we picked up a 2020 skoda octavia RS245 in November which is the nopics car. Yes i appreciate a 2020 model wont be in the price range but what i can say is its a superb all rounder. Fun when you want it to be but equally practical for the 4 of us and the dog when required. two thumbs for the octavia RS wagon platform which i think are pretty similar going back 3 - 4 years now?

            btw the digital dash setup is fucking mint.

              Can pickup a brand new DSG for almost the same price. I know not manual, but fuck paying new car pricing for a 3 year old one....

                I agree - I'm a manual fanatic and I'd buy a new DSG one instead.

                  Not sure where all this 'must be manual' stuff came from, wasn't in my post...
                  Don't worry, thats just the self-preservation instinct, in my experience you can safely ignore it.

                      He said “driver’s car”, auto is “commuter’s car”.
                      Nothing wrong with a commuter’s car, we spend heaps of our lives commuting!
