BMW's have the most attractive AP's but Honda well worth consideration. As cannot order until q2 will track prices.
    Ssanyong Rexton gone as you mentioned Turismo up to £3250 for the model i'm looking at. (from 2749)

    Following further research I have added VW Passat. A fine car, a high AP but a high specification car. I did look at MINI Countryman but it only has Manual Air Con, dual climate is expensive option.

    Seats way too low for me.
    Many SEAT cars and others have gone as they cannot meet Motability's 12 week build schedule. I guess Motability want to unload older cars asap and won't tolerate, in some cases, a 26 week plus build. This may explain loss of Mazda CX5 also.
