    So, we finally got round to taking the car for a test drive (they wouldn't allow us to have it for the day, only for 20 minutes and a supervised drive)
    and after making use of the adjustments my wife was very comfortable driving it.

    After we got back from the test drive the dealer asked if we were interested in the car and MY wife told him we were also looking at the Hyundai Tucson; the dealer took exception to this and asked us how much the Tucson advanced payment is. Lis told him it was 350 for basically the same car. The dealer then said: "You're not having a Tucson, I've looked after you." went and spoke to his manager and agreed to give the sportage for the same price as we quoted for the Tucson! So over all, we're extremely happy with what we have and have got it a reduced price!

    Thanks for all the advice and experiences guys

    I have found a 20 min drive too short so am arranging another one with different dealer. After 20 mins only starting to get the feel of car, seats etc.

    We picked up car our yesterday and it's absolutely beautiful, I'm very happy. We have a lovely black Kia Sportage and MY wife feels very comfortable driving it, although she is scared of its size atm.

    Thank you both. It's more comfortable for her, she used to really struggle because of her shoulders and back. We went for a long drive yesterday and she didn't complain once about any pain.

    Thank you all once again for your advice and answers.

    A fine choice of car.

    Yeah, I think we (eventually) chose well. I'm glad we saved the money for the discounted AP. We bought a dashcam yesterday as my wife is scared of its size and other drivers hitting us. We encounter an awful lot of terrible drivers every day.
