Buying a new car
I'm looking to buy one of the following - Volvo V60, Peugeot 508, Citroen C5, Toyota Avensis.

Looking for a comfortable, reliable, safe car.

I've driven German cars over the years, but hate the harsh hard ride, but still would like something sporty to drive.

What the best you would recommend?

no kids , or dog to carry .
